It’s a hot topic. We’re almost halfway through 2016 and we’ve already had four massive comic book films, with many more coming our way over the next few years.

We’ve examined this question before, namely Cai Ross’s Dawn of indifference: Why Batman v Superman’s Success is Cause for Concern, in which the dividing line between audiences and critics became ever more deep in the sand.

However, with the success of Deadpool, the resurgence of Marvel’s films with Captain America: Civil War, and the slew of new characters entering the crowded arena are we looking forward to a new age of comic book movies?

Let’s find out – have your say in the comments below…
