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.

Forgot about the female Spider-Man spinoff. Will the series make it that long, let alone until late 2018?

As long as there are kids, especially fanboys with kids, then it should make it. But my 8yr old nephew was savvy enough to say that the franchise is weak, and he was not impressed.

Basically those who practice in the realm of magic, sorcery and the underworld such as Zatana, John Constatine and Deadman.

Where on the timeline should we put the marker that says, "Audiences fatigued, projects cancelled"?

Heh - gonna go with likely sometime before Shazam... possibly before Aquaman.

I think we can put Spider-Man fatigue right after the premier of The Amazing Spider-Man 2

holy shnikies ! this is insane are any other movies coming out ? no horror, comedy, drama - no pixar movies so theses are the only movies coming out ever until 2020 ? not fair - how could hollywood allow this... Only super heroes to be made for the next 5 years... so no scifi, horror, comedy or drama - just action super hero movies... so messed up... hahah - just fickin' with you ... thats a lot of hero movies regardless.. which ones will be a complete disaster - my number bet is all the unknowns... why cant they decide already.. WTF??
