Why is DC Comics' performance in "movies" so poor compared to Marvel's. While their TV Series rock?

Joss Whedon mentioned how one of the characters might die in Avengers 2 in 2015. However, lets not forget that he did allow Agent Coulson to die, but that turned out to be false because the character is set to star in Marvel's Agents of Shield this fall on ABC. And, the show takes place...
