From Disney’s Marvel to Warner Bro’s DC and the in-between. Here’s an updated list of the superhero films that will be released from 2016 to 2017 and their corresponding facts. Part 2 is here:
9. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Release Date: May 5, 2017

10. Fantastic Four 2
Release Date: June 9, 2017
Cast: Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell.
Update: According to Fox’s Creative Consultant Mark Millar: “I think everything’s open to discussion. No decision I think has been made on anything yet like that. There’s chats everyone’s going to have on the phone at some point, but the Marvel brand is such a powerful brand”, Millar said. Although the fact that no decision has been made, when there’s currently a summer 2017 release date to hit for Fantastic Four 2, doesn’t seem to bode too well.
11. Wonder Woman
