Disney Boss Isn't Worried About Competition From WB's DC Comics Slate; "We're Marvel"

Thanks to WB finally launching a DC Cinematic Universe, Marvel are going to get some serious competition over the next few years. Are they worried? Well, Disney CEO Bob Iger isn't fretting about rival comic book movies, and talks here about why Marvel has nothing to be scared about...

Since 2008, Marvel Studios has enjoyed being the dominant force in the comic book movie world, but Warner Bros.' DC Comics slate means that they will soon be competing for release dates and at the box office with their Distinguished Competition. Disney CEO Bob Iger isn't losing any sleep about that though, and revealed at the Allen & Co. media conference in Sun Valley that he believes the goodwill they've generated over the past few years with moviegoers is going to keep them well ahead of their rivals. "We’re Marvel. We’ve done a great job of building the Marvel brand, which we think when it’s on a movie really makes a difference. We’re seeing signs of that."

Part of building that brand includes launching risky properties like Ant-Man, Captain Marvel, and Doctor Strange, but Iger remains confident in what's to come. "We like the Marvel slate that we have coming up. We think they’re unique in many ways and have no concerns [about competition] whatsoever." What do you guys think about these comments? Should Marvel be worried about Batman v Superman and the like, or will Captain America: Civil War reign supreme?
