Upcoming Marvel and DC Comic Book Movies

Over the past decade or so, comic book movies have proved to be the most bankable. The critics may not love them all, but there have been very few instances when CBMs have bombed at the box office. Not all are behemoths, but almost all make a profit.

So it's no wonder that there are now three shared universes - the MCU, the DCEU, and the X-Men Universe - and Sony’s SpiderVerse and The Valiant Universe are expected to arrive soon. This is exciting news, because the studios will work hard to provide audiences with the most exciting and compelling stories.

So which Marvel Comics and DC Comics characters will be featured in upcoming movies? You'll find all the info you need right here!

Thor: Ragnarok (November 3, 2017)

New Thor: Ragnarok trailer has arrived! Thor: Ragnarok! (Marvel)

Thor: Ragnarok is Thor’s chance to really shine in a solo movie, but it's also Hulk’s turn to be in the spotlight! Ragnarok will be more than just a story about Thor, Hela, Loki, and the (presumed) fall of Asgard; it will also adapt the beloved Planet Hulk storyline.

Taika Waititi's movie is the shortest Marvel Cinematic Universe flick to date. Nevertheless, it looks good, although some naysayers feel that there are too many characters and stories to condense into around 100 minutes.

Cate Blanchett (Hela), Jeff Goldblum (Grandmaster), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Karl Urban (Skurge), and even Sam Neill (in a still-undisclosed role) will join the returning cast members.


Although Doctor Strange will have just a brief cameo, his role will be essential to Thor’s story, as he'll help the God of Thunder find Odin and also send Thor to where Hulk is on Sakaar.

Thor: Ragnarok is the most anticipated movie in a year that's already seen Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming released. And that says a lot!
