Here are 51 (yes, 51!) superhero movies you can look forward to

Ant-Man-Poster

Superhero movies are nothing new (Superman, Batman, Spiderman...) but they began to snowball in 2000, after the success of X-Men. And with the growing trend of comic book box office hits, manic studios are now juggling 51 comic book films, expected to be released between July 2015 to the year 2020. At the front of the queue is next month's Ant-Man, followed by The Fantastic Four onĀ August 7th of this year in the U.S. Others coming up in the next 12 months include Marvel's Deadpool, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Captain America: Civil War. Read the complete list, along with synopses and dates, at Den of Geek.

Marvel is rebooting Fantastic Four, also starting to eat itself

Not content with merely continuing stories, Marvel has announced another reboot of a movie they made not that long ago. Josh Trank, director of Chronicle, will bring Fantastic Four back to the screen March 6, 2015. The 2005 version, which spawned a 2007 sequel, featured the current Captain America/Steve Rogers Chris Evans as the Human Torch, and I say he should just pull a "Marvel Universe Patty Duke Show" and reprise his role at one more time for the sheer heck of it. Even if he's going to be making The Avengers 2 the same year. Keep shooting for the title of Greatest Cinematic Uroboros, Marvel. You can do it! (via The Daily Blam)
