Comic books certainly have dominated the box office for years now, and their abundant success shows absolutely no signs of slowing down. The fervent fanbase that each superhero possesses is truly remarkable. It’s no wonder these films are such huge hits with audiences across the globe.

What Does The Future Hold?

As time goes on, the various backstories of these iconic characters are being told in more detail than ever before, which has done nothing but delight the average comic book aficionado.

Joker, written and directed by Todd Philips (The Hangover films), already has big names like Joaquin Phoenix attached to it. And it appears as though it’s about to add another acting legend to the mix: Robert De Niro!
