are still dozens and dozens in the concept and development stages -
the re-launch of the Fantastic Four, possible re-launch of
Daredevil, sequels to many of the Marvel Studios
film properties. Marvel has gone onto create Doctor Strange, Ant-Man
Guardians of the Galaxy movies and are going to be producing a
Black Panther film and many other characters in the Marvel
Universe in the years to come.
Marvel continues to look at all of their characters to see if any
can be turned into future films and DC Entertainment are always evaluating
their over 75 year history of comic icons to see which is worthy of
a major motion picture. Justice League of America is

is great for us action figure and comic book collectors to be able
to see our favorite characters turned into live action and animated
movies. Great products are introduced to us based on the movies
with a brand new look and feel than their original interpretations
bringing a wonderful pizzazz and excitement to our great hobbies.
I have created a few pages on my site separating into different categories
including DC Comic movies and
DC animated movies,
movies and Marvel Animated movies
where you can read about the most popular motion pictures
as well as some of the smaller films that have come to life and
a direct impact on the action figure and comic book hobbies.
It's a wonderful time for all fans who have followed these
great characters and their stories and to see them come to life on
the big screen and in other forms of media like Blu-Ray and DVD and
digital streaming online making them accessible for everyone.
Our dreams have become reality in
many instances and more are on the way.
