List Rules Vote up all the superhero movies you're most excited to go broke over in the theaters!

In the next five years we will have over thirty (THIRTY!) comic book properties released onto the silver screen. More than twenty of these are officially confirmed, with Marvel Studios having ten of those dates locked, and DC recently confirming even more for their franchises. Crazy. What upcoming superhero movies can you not wait to see?

This has been the dream of comic readers for years. The idea that all of our favorite characters would be immortalized in film seemed unbelievable, but now they are the golden standard for movies.

Marvel movies comprise some of the most successful franchises of all time. DC is racing to catch up, with all sorts of Justice League shenanigans on the way. Sony is turning their one major property (Spider-Man) into a huge universe of its own, with seven movies in total planned so far. Over at Fox, they are upping their mutant game and even revamping the Fantastic Four. 

Oh, and Marvel just got the rights back for Ghost Rider, Punisher, and Blade back – so expect even more release dates in the coming years!

It's a wonderful, crazy, awesome time to be a comic fan and a film goer. Vote up the superhero film that you're most excited for!
