Scottish comic book mogul Mark Millar was once upon a time one of Marvel Comics’ most popular writers, but these days, it seems, Millar places his allegiance with the rival comic book empire. After the release of the New York Comic Con Aquaman trailer, Millar was so enamored with the upcoming Worlds of DC film that he said the trailer alone was better than all of Marvel’s movies. Like, a lot better.
Aquaman trailer just made modern Marvel look like 70s TV Marvel, chums. The green gauntlet has been slapped down and DC back in the game. A 5 min trailer so damn audacious, @creepypuppet, you damn genius! https://t.co/fEv7v3kSJe

It’s a bold statement from Millar, but one that could prove promising for a shared cinematic universe attempting to leave behind the memory of Zack Snyder’s Vision and the DCEU, which seemed to always lag behind their Marvelous competitors. We’ll see how it works out when Aquaman hits theaters on December 21st.
