Though people, myself not included, feel superhero fatigue at this point after several reboots, reshoots, rehashes and three different Spider-man series in the space of a little over a decade, the superhero genre is still thriving, with fans clamouring to see their favourite comic characters brought to life.

Over the next few years there are more superhero films being released than ever. Warner Bros. are playing catch up to Marvel are marvelling in their success, and with Fox being Fox, there’s no end in sight for our favourite spandex wearing heroes.

The Lego Batman Movie

Okay, so Lego Batman is not technically a ‘Superhero movie’ like the rest of the entries on this list, but it still warrants a place, because it’s Batman!

After stealing just about every scene he was in in "The Lego Movie", Will Arnett returns to voice Batman once again, this time for his very own Film. Like the Lego movie, this animated adventure looks to wow audiences with its stylish animation, and humour that should entertain fans young and old.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2

"Guardians of the Galaxy" was a huge hit in 2014, helping launch the career of Chris Pratt as the every guy hero type role he has played ever since. It also introduced a new band of heroes to the masses, bringing the little known characters to the forefront of the comic world.

The misfits turned heroes return for more space opera adventures, with director James Gunn once again taking charge, in what could be one of the most entertaining films of 2017.

Thor Ragnarok

Despite stars Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston excelling in their roles as Norse God, Thor and his mischievous brother Loki, the Thor films just haven’t quite hit the mark that the rest of the Avengers solo projects have.

Marvel made the brave choice, bringing Taika Waititi in to direct. He's the man behind great films such as "What We Do in the Shadows" and this years brilliant "Hunt for the Wilderpeople". With him on board, the addition of Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk, and rumours of a planned Planet Hulk tie-in, the third film in the series looks to be a much needed improvement the series needed.

Wonder Woman

Given her role in "Batman v Superman" impressed just about everyone, the excitement levels of seeing Gal Gadot return as the Warrior Princess for her own solo film is pretty high.

The actress really was one of the best parts of Dawn of Justice, so it will be interesting to see just how she fairs in her very own film. After 75 years however, it's about time she got her chance to shine.

Spider-man: Homecoming

Spider-man is getting a whole new series… again, but this time in the safe hands of Marvel. Tom Holland excited many during his short appearance in "Captain America: Civil War", looking like the Peter Parker/ Spider-man we've all been waiting for.

As well as following a much younger Spider-man, there's also the added bonus of seeing Michael Keaton return to the comic world, this time as the villain.


The hype for "Logan" has slowly been growing ever since Hugh Jackman announced it would be the last time we will see him in the role. Yes, after playing everyone’s favourite clawed hero, Jackman is stepping down from the role, nearly two decades later and 8 films already under his belt.

Though the other solo outings have proved to be less than thrilling, "Logan" looks set to be the farewell that many fans are hoping for.

Justice League

Despite the many issues most people had with director Zack Snyder’s "Man of Steel" and "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", "Justice League" is without doubt one the biggest movies to be released next year.

With both Dawn of Justice and "Suicide Squad" fairing negatively with critics, and most moviegoers, Warner Bros.

and a returning Snyder will be working extra carefully to ensure that the superhero team-up lives up to the hype.

If all goes well, then Justice League should help Warner Bros. as they look to rival Disney and Marvel with their very own successful universe.
