Movies about superheroes

Updated on June 18, 2013

So I just watched the last batman movie and that made me think, how many movies are we going to make based on the superheroes that are in the comics or graphic novels. There are so many comic books that are based on a lot of superheroes and yet we do not always know about all of them, unless one is a comic book type person.

I also happened to have watch The Amazing Spiderman and it was okay, I'm not a comic book person so I didn't really know much about Peter Parker's first girlfriend, until a friend of mine told me that she was his first love. There is so much that I didn't know about and that comes from not really getting into comic books.

But one thing that really surprises me is that they seem to be doing more movies about superheroes lately. After hearing from two friends of mine talking about upcoming movies with more superheroes, I just had to ask myself, "Is there really so many superheroes to make movies out of?" Do they plan to bring out more superheroes that are in different comics?

Not that I don't enjoy a good superhero movie, because I enjoy watching those movies. But maybe the real question that I am wanting to ask is how many superheroes are worth making a movie about. I know, just by what people talk about, that some of the superheroes are worth making movies about and some are not.

      To answer your question, yes there are that many comics! There are far more superheroes than movies portray. From your two main companies, Marvel and DC, they put out anywhere from 30 to 70 comics each month (and yes that's 30 to 70 different characters). You also have a few more smaller companies that put out comics.

      Every person has their own beliefs but in my opinion I think there are a ton more superheroes that are worthy to be turned into movies. And the saddest part is that we don't really have a lot of movies portraying any strong female superheroes. I would like to see a Supergirl or Batgirl movie. Or even the Scarlet Witch.
