supersched

The Warner Bros. announcement on Wednesday of ten upcoming movies based on DC Comics properties neatly fills in a calendar of dates that the studio previously provided -- and help flesh out an extraordinary timetable of DC and Marvel superhero movies over the next six years from Warner Bros, Marvel Studios, Fox, and Sony Columbia.

ComicsAlliance's own graphics maestro Dylan Todd put together a timeline that reveals what those six years look like, including 29 confirmed release dates between now and the end of 2020, with several dates and titles still to be announced. For anyone who remembers the days when just one Spider-Man movie seemed an impossible dream, it's an astonishing representation of how comic book superheroes now dominate popular entertainment.

As the unofficial mascot of the Marvel cinematic universe (he's pretty much Mickey Mouse to this corner of the Disney empire), Downey Jr.'s words and opinions feel like they carry a lot of weight. So when he chimes in with a comment that's essentially "Yeah, there really should be a female-led superhero movie, huh?", we can't help but feel slightly vindicated for wondering where the heck a 'Black Widow' or even a 'Captain Marvel' movie is.

Or how about the second-to-last episode of last season, "Watchers on the Wall," which had giants, war mammoths a crazy single-shot scene? Director Neil Marshall is the man behind those iconic installments, but could he be returning to the big screen next to make that Black Widow movie everyone keeps talking about?

Female Ghostbusters Reboot

With a female-led 'Ghostbusters' reboot in the works and the recent announcement that Marvel has turned Thor into a woman, it seems that taking male characters and gender-swapping them could become the latest trend. While it's great to show audiences that it shouldn't matter if their heroes are male or female, it would also be great to see more women taking the lead in their own franchises or original properties. But maybe gender-swapping is the gateway drug; maybe this is the way to train audiences to accept women in leading cinematic roles.

Last month, Marvel head Kevin Feige confirmed development on a solo 'Black Widow' movie, but just a few weeks after that, Scarlett Johansson announced she was pregnant with her first child. While her 'Avengers 2' schedule was accelerated to avoid any conflict, it may impact any plans for the 'Black Widow' movie. Now, Marvel says they "don't know" if or when the movie will come out and that another female superhero could beat her to the punch.

The CW's long-troubled Wonder Woman series, 'Amazon,' might still possibly find its footing, while fans have been shouting praise for Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow.

Female Superhero Movie
Marvel Studios/Warner Bros.

The last several years have blessed us with plenty of superhero films, ranging from Marvel flicks like 'Iron Man' and 'Captain America' -- which led us to the ultimate superhero ensemble flick this summer with 'The Avengers' -- to the final film in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, 'The Dark Knight Rises.'
