Today Warner Bros and DC Comics have hit the film and comic book world with some massive news. Between 2016 and 2020 they will be releasing at least 10 new superhero movies including new entries for Superman, Batman, and the Justice League. The move seems like a challenge to Disney and Marvel’s recent success at the box office with immense projects like X-Men: Years of Future Past and Ironman 3.
