Star Wars, Star Trek, DC, or Marvel? --There can be only one.

So this is in Movie Talk, but it applies to everything: movies, TV shows, books, comics.

Of the four intellectual properties listed, if you could only engage with one for the rest of your life, which would you choose?

So whatever you don't pick, means you can never watch or read any past or future artistic work from those three IPs.

I've stuck with Star Trek for somewhere around 43 seasons of TV and 13 movies.

I still look forward to more, so...

Iíve liked Star Trek the longest so Iíd probably say that. Star Wars would be a close second.

Iíve never really cared for Star Trek, the DC movies have all been a major disappointment so I could do without them, Iím super burned out on Marvel movies and could use a long break anyway, so I guess itís Star Wars.

ÖBut since weíre playing this hypothetical game, I get access to the original original trilogy!

Star Trek Wars

I don't care for super hero films so I don't care about Marvel or DC. I only like the theatrical cuts of the original Star Wars trilogy and Star Trek The TOS and it's six movies for those two franchises. I guess I would choose Star Wars.

Probably Marvel... because it has given me the most entertaining content in terms of quantity.

But Star Wars has the holy trilogy which is in my blood since I was 3.

hmm

DC fan since I was 5 years old, and I'll stay that way for life. For the comics alone, that would be enough; I still have my first comics from almost 50 years ago.

But then I discovered Batman (1966) reruns. And Superfriends. And the Wonder Woman TV show.

And the 1978 SUPERMAN movie, which is still my favorite comic book movie of all time and nothing comes close.

80s DC comics were my wheelhouse. Everything starting with The New Teen Titans in 1980 through the rise of Vertigo with Black Orchid, Hellblazer, Sandman, and Animal Man by 1989. I still read DC up until around 2012, when I dipped out of all monthly comics, and while there were ups and downs I still loved the company, the characters, their universes, and its history.

Then we had the 1989 Batman movie, Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, Justice League Unlimited, Smallville, Arrow, Flash, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Young Justice...

And yeah. I enjoy the DCEU too. Some movies more than others. But I'd argue the Peacemaker show is better than anything Disney+ has offered so far (although the first season of Daredevil trumps all).

so yeah, this would be my ranking:

1) DC
2) Marvel
3) Star Trek
4) Star Wars

all great franchises and i adore the OT, but Marvel movies, generally most of them, have been watched more times than OT at this point. just such high replayability imo over SW.

Easy choice for me - Star Wars

Besides the films, I use to read the books, played the CCG, collected and played with action figures, etc. Definitely the franchise Iíve focused on the most.

DC with Marvel and Star Wars slightly behind. I like Star Trek but I've always been a bigger fan of the others.

If the current Marvel movie universe had the same faithful adaption movies of The Uncanny X-Men comic books stories and action, without a doubt that would be my pick.

So for now Star Trek.

For character development/characters I care about alone, it has to be Star Trek.

Re: Star Wars, Star Trek, DC, or Marvel? --There can be only one.

I would probably have to say Marvel even though the MCU specifically is quite low on the priority list. But I'd be pretty sad if I had to give up 60 years of Marvel comics. Throw in Spider-Man 2 and the X-Men movies and I'd have a hard time going with DC or Star Wars even though Batman:TAS and The Empire Strikes Back are two of my very favorite things in this life. Star Trek is fine, but I've never been more than a casual fan at best.

The sad thing is if this question were only about what is "to come", then I'd probably just pass on the whole lot. Again, I'm pretty agnostic on Star Trek, but the rest can go in a hole and die for all I care. Or at least go away for a long time until there's a real reason to come out again.

Star Trek. It's the only one of these properties where I love and relate so much with that world that I would totally give everything up to live in that world. I love all four but not to the degree of Star Trek.
