By Jarrod Jones. It’s entirely possible someone at DC Entertainment is drafting a greeting card for Marvel Studios at this very moment, one that could potentially read, “hey, jerks! how’s ’bout some aloe for that burnnn!”
(I’m just saying that victories for DC in their neverending war with Marvel are few and far between. *holds up hands* Allll I’m saying.)
Entertainment Weekly took a look at last night’s television ratings and found a rather interesting tidbit of information: for the first time since the superhero series The Flash premiered on the CW, the Scarlet Speedster actually pulled out ahead of its Tuesday night competition, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The site makes a point of mentioning that S.H.I.E.L.D. trounces the (really fantastic) DC show on the regular, and notes that the only thing that makes this turn of events worth mentioning is that Marvel used last night’s
hour-long advertisement action/adventure program as a lead-up to Friday’s premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Which means that there are finally more people more interested in the battle between the Flash and Reverse-Flash than watching Kyle MacLachlan sweat into a loosely-fitted button-down for an hour.
Right now, DC’s all, “yeah, Ant-Man? Up and Atom!”
