There are A LOT of movies based on comics coming up in the next few years. No shocker since they are billion-dollar earning properties including Batman, Avengers and the X-Men.
To help with categorizing of which heroes go to which Hollywood studio, here is a quick reminder:
- WARNER BROS. holds all DC Comics, which includes Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Arrow, etc.
- 20TH CENTURY FOX handles Marvel Comics’ film rights for X-Men and Fantastic Four.
- SONY (Columbia/TriStar) has Marvel’s Spider-Man.
- WALT DISNEY owns Marvel Comics, however does not have the film rights to some of its more popular properties because of prior deals. Disney/Marvel has the Avengers and all other characters including Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, and many more.
