    “There Is No Rivalry, DC Sucks”: Fan War Ensues Over ‘Ms. Marvel’ Director’s Comment That Marvel And DC Are Not Competitors

    It has been a week since Disney+ dropped Ms. Marvel. The six-episode series introduced Kamala Khan as Ms. Marvel and it took no time to become a fan favorite. The directors Bilall Fallah and Adil El Arbi have definitely achieved a great response with their unique masterpiece.

    The pair is also directing another superhero debut, taking on HBO Max’s Batgirl. According to filmmakers, they got a positive response from Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige. On the other hand, this has somehow started a feud between the Marvel and DC fans.

    Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Batgirl directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall mentioned that Marvel Studios’ chief Kevin Feige and the rest of the team were enthusiastic about the pair’s new sign in DC.

    “We wrote [Marvel Studios] an email that said we were going to do Batgirl, and then Kevin Feige, Victoria [Alonso], and Lou [D’Esposito] all said, ‘Congratulations!’ They were super happy for us,” Fallah said. “People say there’s a rivalry, but it’s totally not like that. They make each other stronger, and we felt the vibe between DC and Marvel.”

    They’re big fans of each other,” El Arbi added. “Kevin was constantly asking questions, ‘How’s it going? What’s going to happen?’ He was a real fanboy, so that was pretty dope.”

    While there are obvious differences between Ms. Marvel and Batgirl, there are similarities as well, particularly, both projects are origin stories, something that the pair recently spoke with Variety about.

    For both, it’s an origin story,” Fallah said. “They have to grow and find a way to be who they have to become — a superhero. On the other hand, it’s totally different. Ms. Marvel is so teenager, super colorful and young, and then you have Batgirl in Gotham City with Batman, which is darker. Their journeys are similar in that they have to learn to become a superhero and take responsibility and grow.”

    Fans Try To Rip Each Other Apart Over This Comparison

    The statement from Bilal has started a war between the Marvel and DC fans over Twitter:
