Everything is okee-dokey.

Last week at the premiere of Suicide Squad, which is based on the DC Comics stories, Ayer got a tad too fired up and shouted, “F*** Marvel.” He apologized on Twitter, but naturally, the folks over at Marvel Studios took notice.

Head of Marvel TV Jeph Loeb managed to keep things civil when asked about Suicide Squad, which unfortunately tanked with critics. When asked if he learned anything from Suicide Squad‘s failure, Loeb replied, “No. It’s funny, we actually get asked that a lot.”

He elaborated that he tries to not make too many comparisons. “The truth is, they do what they do and we do what we do,” Loeb said. “I tend to sort of think about it like I’m not sure that people that make medical shows look at other medical shows and go, ‘Why is my medical show better than this?'”

For Loeb, it all comes down to sharing comic book stories with fans instead of being about competition between Marvel and DC. “The DC characters which I know and I love and have had a lot of fun writing and being part of are really strong, wonderful characters,” he stated. “We tell these stories so that people can enjoy them, so let’s see whether or not people enjoy them. I think that’s really the key to it all.”
