Summary of “What Makes ‘Star Wars’ Superior to Marvel”

Through Lucasfilm, Disney produces the Star Wars movies, which now depict a new generation of righteous rebels and dreary, black-clad tyrants.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is the younger franchise by 31 years, and yet it’s already produced twice as many movies, not to mention its 11 different TV series airing on Netflix, Fox, ABC, and FX. The MCU is a multimedia hydra, the sheer tonnage of Marvel-branded film and TV content in the world now outweighing the Star Wars canon.
Star Wars has always been a film franchise, first and foremost, whereas the Marvel comics that inspire the MCU predate Marvel Studios movies by decades.
Star Wars is an inclusive mythology, and all Star Wars characters serve that grand narrative above all; Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, and Kylo Ren don’t each get three solo features dedicated to their individual character development between the main movies.
The massive Star Wars fandom produces its own, obsessive character sketches, but the movies themselves favor ensemble drama.
There’s the mainline Star Wars movies, where each generation’s lead characters wrestle over politics, faith, and romance in the central narrative arena.
In this sense, the prequels-which are widely regarded as an expensive, protracted disaster-are the closest the Star Wars franchise has come to operating according to Marvel’s egocentric character principles: the prequels were still broad political dramas, but they bent themselves rather uncomfortably to the will and destiny of a single, popular, overdetermined hero at the expense of bigger, broader developments in the Star Wars mythology, such as the Clone Wars, which the prequels largely skip.
Essentially, the modern Star Wars movies are what would happen if Marvel Studios limited itself to full-on Avengers movies, exclusively.
