Screenwriters of the MCU have said in the past that rival DC could take a leaf out of their book in order to build more popularity for its films, but the truth of the matter is that it’s easier said than done.

Now, even the Russo Brothers—the famous directors behind Marvel films Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame—have tipped their hats to DC, which they say has one of the most complex characters to adapt on-screen.

In a recent interview with Business Insider, the duo named the superhero they unanimously felt was among the trickiest superheroes to adapt to film: ‘Superman’, who was played by Henry Cavill since 2013.

Anthony Russo described that the more powerful a character is, the tougher it might be to transcend them onto a narrative plane. In order to make them compelling, “we always look for vulnerabilities in characters.”

“They’re superficially interesting in their strength, but they get much more depth when you find where they don’t have that kind of strength,” he said.

Joe Russo agreed that ‘Superman’ fit into that mold. “He’s a very difficult character. You have to find an emotional flaw or weakness in the character in order to make them vulnerable.”
