Helpful Infographic Lays Out Next Six Years of Comic Book Movies
Back in August, we put together a list of all the DC Comics and Marvel movies heading to the big screen over the next six years. Marvel had staked out dates through 2019 while Warner Bros. had locked down two dates each year through 2020. Well, following the recent onslaught of news regarding which DC Comics properties will hit the big screen each year, a handy little infographic rounding up all the comic book movies that we'll see hitting the big screen has surfaced, beginning with Disney's adaptation of Big Hero 6 early next month. When you see the comic calendar laid out like this, it all seems rather daunting. Look below!
Here's the infographic for all the comic book films arriving through 2020 (via Comics Alliance):
As you can see, there are currently 40 films scheduled to arrive before the end of 2020, and some of those are films that we know are in development that simply don't have release dates yet. While this is the official agenda for now, some of these films are a long ways off, and there's no doubt that there will be some scheduling changes. In fact. some of these films may not come to fruition of certain predecessors don't work out at the box office. Just look at what happened with Sony Pictures' plans for The Amazing Spider-Man franchise after the sequel didn't fare as well as they hoped. But either way, we're in store for an onslaught of comic book movies (there are some that have been rumored to be in development but aren't on the list), and that's a trend that's not going away soon. Stay tuned for all the latest on these flicks.
