For better or worse, 2016 has been one of the most eventful years in recent memory. Unfortunately, much of what occurred in this year will live in infamy, but on the brighter side of things, we got a record of 6 brand new comic book films this year. Once again, for those who are already crying “superhero fatigue,” you couldn’t be more wrong. Marvel, Fox and DC each brought two new projects this year, and although some films were definitely held in higher regard than others, the upcoming slate of comic book movies in 2017 still have quite a bit to improve upon.
Today, as we are mere hours away from ringing in 2017, let’s run down the 6 major superhero offerings in the coming year. All of them have some important goals to accomplish, and if they do indeed succeed, 2017 will be an even better year for the colorful characters we all adore.
