Are you crazy about superheroes? If superheroes are your passion, give a shout out to 2017 because this is your year for movies. When it comes to action-packed, excitement filled superhero-featured films, 2017 has a whole plethora of new movies for superhero fans to fall in love with. At your local theater this year there will be superhero movies a-plenty featuring both original material and lots and lots of sequels, once again rebooting your favorite heroes in a whole slew of brand new thrilling adventures. Are you ready for some serious entertainment? Here's some of what you have coming.

Movies to Marvel. Last year was a huge year for Marvel Comics at the box office, and this year promises to be even bigger. With "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" and "Thor: Ragnarok" soon hitting the big screen, the Disney/Marvel Studios team could prove to be very lucrative as it dominates the list of summer movie blockbusters.

As if that wasn't enough excitement, come mid-summer Sony will release its third incarnation of Marvel's famous Spiderman with the release of "Spiderman: Homecoming." Already showing in theaters is "Logan," the latest film featuring a Marvel character (and one of our personal favorites) the Wolverine. "Logan" is rumored to be the Wolverine's last solo appearance, so you don't want to miss this show!

DC to See. Never to be outdone, DC Comics and Warner Brothers will be releasing their own exciting batch of superhero adventures to this summer's movie audiences. Wonder Woman will be featured doing her thing in "Wonder Woman, " and then you can look forward to seeing her again this fall with some of her epic superhero cohorts in "Justice League," directed by Zack Snyder.

The Justice League, comprised of Superman, Batman, Aquaman, The Flash, Cyborg and Wonder Woman will attempt to save the planet from imminent destruction in what promises to be the ultimate superhero-fest. Already showing in theaters is the not-to-miss "Lego Batman Movie." Combining hilarious wisecracks, adventure and some pretty silly blunders with the morphing of all the best Batman characters into toy bricks, this wild misadventure is one both adults and kids will love

If you are thinking what we are thinking, you will have to agree. When it comes to superhero movies, this year has a lot of amazing stuff coming with movies filled with fun, originality and spectacle on the horizon. While you are heading to your local theater, we're busy stockpiling the latest versions of all your favorite superhero costumes.
