Despite cries to the contrary, the superhero genre isn’t going anywhere. 2016 offered seven films, a number matched by this year (counting Marvel, DC, X-Men and outliers like Power Rangers and TMNT) and 2018 has a solid five (with room for at least a couple more) But if you really want proof comic book adaptations are here to stay, you need to go to 2019.
It’s obviously a couple of years out, but this is shaping up to be the biggest year yet for both Marvel and DC, while the likes of Fox and Sony are also speeding up. If all of the announced, speculated and otherwise rumored projects come to pass, we could be looking at a double-digits number of releases. Here’s what they are.
