List Rules
Vote up the best year to be a comic book fan at the movies.

The last few decades have been tremendous for both the film industry and the comic book biz. Since 2008, Marvel has risen the bar on superhero movies to record-breaking heights, giving DC a run for its money while creating a whole new era of theatrical experiences. Over the last 20 years alone, audiences were treated to over 20 movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and a dozen films featuring iconic DC characters, and that doesn't include standalone superhero movies outside of the MCU and DC. All in all, it's been win-win for movie lovers, comic collectors, and studios...for the most part.
