23 Comic Book Movies Set for Release Between 2015 & 2020. Excited?

23 Comic Book Movies Set for Release Between 2015 & 2020. Excited?

My goodness! The next 6 years at the movies will most certainly be exciting times for comic-book-movie fanboys and girls, if the recently released schedule of dates from powerhouses Warner Bros/DC and Disney/Marvel hold.

Starting in 2015, through 2020, both studios will release a total of 23 of these movies, for an average of about 4 a year.

I have to wonder whether audiences will eventually (maybe sooner than later) start to suffer from superhero movie fatigue. But maybe not – especially if you’re a fan. And I should note that, not every comic book from DC and Marvel centers on a superhero. So I shouldn’t assume that every single 1 of the 23 will be based on a superhero character. Although I’m sure the majority will most certainly be.

I’m not at either extreme (neither a fanboy, nor an anti-fanboy); I take each film as it comes. I like a good story (at least what I consider a good story), regardless of what form it comes in. Although it would be really nice if at least 1 of these many scheduled dates is for a film based on a black superhero comic book. more than 1 would be nice, but I don’t want to push it, and get my expectations up, only to be disappointed.

Some years are *lighter* than others, with each expected to see the releases of no less than 2 films.

In 2018 there’ll be as many as 6 (SIX!) superhero comic book movies released by both studios (WB/DC and Disney/Marvel) combined. Six!

Keep in mind that, also within the time period that the 23 movies will be released, Disney will debut several Marvel superhero TV series on Netflix, in a new partnership between the companies that was announced last year. So your TV and your local theater screens will be heavy on comic book adaptations. 

Find the announced schedules from both studios below, including the titles that have already been announced. If you could play WB and/or Disney studio chief, what would you fill the “untitled” slots with? 

Here’s the WB/DC schedule:

March 25, 2016 – “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice”
August 5, 2016 – Untitled DC Film

Not going anywhere. Hollywood likes how they have built in fanbases that drive the buzz and can have long running story arcs, hence the reasent run on classic Fairy Tales. I always wondered if an over satturation could occur if DC comics/WB threw their hat into the ring, but I have doubts. These characters have been popular since the 30's, by now its myth. That doesnt go away.

Excited?

Nope.

There won't be any "comic book movie" fatigue just like there's no "action movie fatigue." It's a genre and they will continue to get made. The question is whether they will continue to be nine figure box office grosses for them and obviously, at some point, that will tamp down a bit. Marvel seems to have it locked, though. No one expected "Guardians of the Galaxy" to break out like it did. If they can pull off similar numbers for "Ant Man," the sky truly is the limit.

WTF?????

I have no problem with this, being a comic book fan myself. I just don't like the watered down garbage that goes for comic book films. I always here people upset saying that's all Hollywood want to invest into, so what let them be who they are, that mean they are leaving millions of dollars on the table for different kind of films waiting to get picked up by indie filmmakers. With them just wanting to be that deep into superhero movies, indie filmmakers have a chance to take advantage of this and tell the stories we want to tell and feed an audience that is hungry for these type of films the studios are not making.

Star Carlton

I can't wait to see Untitled DC Film and Untitled Marvel Film – I bet those will be great !!

Bill York

Well big whoop-di-do 23 new movies over six years. I sure hope I can even live that long. I have to thank you for your very informative article whichis just about worthless considering only six have even got a hero. What a waste of my time.

Mike

I will pick and choose which ones I want to see. I just hope that there is a black superhero or villain in the 23 films that are coming.

EC

90% are 'Untitled'…Is this a joke?

Not any more.

Looks like I've stumbled into a douchey, grumpy message board full of haters.

If you don't like these films, why click on the article?

Go play in the street…

LeonRaymond

I bet most of them are probably awesome but I am so done so bored of them cause they take up like 75% of the Studios thought process and they just keep on making them I have not even watched or rented the last 4 that came out and the next three I know I will not. Hollywood make something else -But they can't!

sergio

The never-been-laid nerds have truly taken over? Can someone find some kind understanding hookers to help them become men?

Rick

I'll get excited on a case by case basis.

LauRoman

What about Fox and Sony's schedules?

Dave's Deluxe

Thanks for the heads-up. I'll make sure my basic cable is paid in full, as I'll be watching a lot of TV.
