When it comes to comic book films, which ones are your favorites? With new technology coming up with every new movie, it’s hard not to become enamored with each new movie that shows up in the theatre. And these days it seems that every film (comic book or no) seems to be filmed in 3D, making the action a lot more realistic. From Superman The Movie to the upcoming Green Lantern, it seems to be a fact that comic book films will be thrilling audiences for years to come. The purpose of this article is to seven of the upcoming comic book movies to the cinema.

Green Lantern -- This is the next big movie to come down the pike. Hal Jordan, a test pilot receives a ring from a dying alien that gives him fantastic powers. He soon finds out that he has been recruited into an extraterrestrial police force that enforces justice in the universe.

X-Men First Class -- Before they were enemies, Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr were best friends. A potential world crisis (which from what I can tell from the previews may be the Cuban Missile Crisis) brings them together to form the first class of Professor Xavier’s school for gifted children. Unfortunately, differing ideologies create a rift between them that creates one of the greatest rivalries the Marvel Universe has ever known.

Captain America, The First Avenger -- Steve Rogers, a skinny runt with big aspirations, wants to be a soldier and fight in World War II. Unfortunately, his weakness designate him as 4F, which essentially meant “unfit for service.” However, he is chosen for the Army’s “Super Soldier” program and becomes Captain America!

Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance -- Johnny Blaze returns as the Ghost Rider who is attempting to stop the Devil, (yes, the actual Devil), who is trying to take human form. Apparently, there may be some child issues involved. :)

The Avengers -- It’s happening! It’s really happening! The Worlds Greatest Heroes are finally coming together to make a movie! Featuring (almost) all of the heroes who have been revealed to us in Marvel comic book films from the recent past, Thor, Captain America, Iron Man and more will be working together to stop a world threat. For those trivia buffs out there, Lou Ferrigno will be reprising his role as the Hulk (sort of)! He is actually doing the voice of the Hulk.

The Dark Knight Rises -- Not much is known about this movie except that the villains featured will be Catwoman (played by Anne Hathaway) and Bane (played by Tom Hardy). Apparently the past plot making Batman Gotham City’s most wanted still stands. It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out.

The Amazing Spider Man -- This is the much anticipated reboot of Spider-Man putting Peter Parker back in high school and instead of him romancing Mary Jane Watson, he gets to romance the apparently ill fated Gwen Stacy. You Spidey fans know what I’m talking about. Also we get to meet a new villain, Dr. Kurt Connors aka The Lizard!

Now you know some of the details about the upcoming comic book films. However, it should be noted that not all comic book movies involve superheroes. There’s Men in Black 3 coming in 2012, and Preacher which has no known release date yet. It’s a sure thing that in the near future at least, comic book films are going to make movie screens pop! Which comic book movies are you planning to see?

Cool Article. I See they are planning to make a Flash movie (a reason why I built a Flash costumes site) and in doing this I noticed a new Superman movie is coming, a Wonder Woman movie in the process all as well as Batman and Green Lantern I see the final aim in this collaboration will be a Justice League Of America movie. I love these comics, but, I really hate over the top CGI, looks cheap and wish it wasn't invented. I do like the Batman movies though, nice and dark.
