TV/Movie Discussion – Superhero Saturation

As a fan of comic books and superheroes I was excited to hear that both Marvel and DC/Warner Bros had big plans in the upcoming years to release a slew of new superhero movies. My initial excitement started to fade a bit when I saw the sheer number of superhero content these major studios planned to release. I fear that producing too many comic book movies and shows will diminish the enjoyment of the films. I’m already at the point where I think to myself, “Another superhero movie?”. Nevertheless, it would be a safe bet to say that I’ll be watching every single one. So! Here is a list of all the known DC and Marvel films slates.
