2016 was a banner year for the superhero genre, as it saw the release of such highly anticipated titles as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Captain America: Civil War, and Doctor Strange—all to seriously high box office results. Even riskier films like Deadpool and Suicide Squad proved successful, proving that the superhero genre is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

On the docket are some exciting shakeups to the genre as a whole—from a LEGO Batman to a (finally) R-rated Wolverine movie—so there’s plenty to be excited about. So without further ado, read on.
