In past ten years of Cinema, comic books’ live-action and animated adaptations have turned into a major cash machine for film studios and production houses. With several Comic Book adaptations hitting screens since 2000, a huge outbreak occurred after 2008 when Marvel Studios started their MCU franchise with ‘Iron Man’. This trend went further with Fox Studios turning their original ‘X-men’ Film Series into a shared universe in multiple timelines. And now DC Films followed them into their footsteps announcing plans for 10 major DC Comics adaptations, together forming DCEU.
These movies always leave audiences and fans with a little surprise and suspense that makes them want more and more. So, here is the list of new and latest comic book movies that you can vouch for. The list consists of mainly upcoming superhero movies.
