Comicbook Movies of the Millennium
Back in 2000 (the year that Marvel’s first X-Men film came out, and fundamentally altered the way that both Hollywood and — by extension — all of pop culture) viewed the comicbook genre. There have been between four and a dozen comicbook-related films released per year. Over the past decade-and-a-half we have been tracking comicbook movies, (As you'd know if you've been following this blog for any length of time — we have a 30+year history or reporting of actual comics).
In 2015 there were five comicbook-related movies that hit the theaters. As we’ve reported in previous installments of this column, we are only discussing live-action films that a) either started off in comics, b) are clearly influenced by comicbooks themselves, or c) by comicbook superheroes. Films that we are not considering for this series include anything that originally appeared on TV (live action or animated), theatrically-released animated films, or films based on properties adapted into comics, but were best known for initially appearing in another medium (e.g.: toys). We are also not considering films that were released direct to video or DVD.
The first set of links list an overview of films categorized as the titles indicate. Those links are followed by links to the films chronically by year with the most recent year listed first: We began to post this list over at Examiner.com, but as we are no longer associated with that website, we will continue to post the list over at Hubpages (where we currently post our reviews).
So, here you go, effendi, enjoy!
