Another superhero movie, I know. I feel the same way too; it's like everywhere we turn another superhero movie is being shoved down our throats.
I love comic books, and I love comic book movies more so. The cream of the crop in terms of superhero films lay heavily with Marvel Studios, having produced 13 fantastic films to date.
