Supermovies: Calendar of Comic Movies infographic

Supermovies is a calendar infographic created by graphic artist Dylan Todd (in collaboration with Comics Alliance).

ComicsAlliance’s own graphics maestro Dylan Todd put together a timeline that reveals what those six years look like, including 29 confirmed release dates between now and the end of 2020, with several dates and titles still to be announced. For anyone who remembers the days when just one Spider-Man movie seemed an impossible dream, it’s an astonishing representation of how comic book superheroes now dominate popular entertainment.

Our timeline makes the assumption that the Warner Bros movies will be released in the order listed in their press release, which seems a safe assumption. We can also assume that some of the “year unknown” movies on the bottom tier, like Thor 3 and Gambit, may eventually be placed in some of the existing slots in the timeline, and that Marvel Studios, Fox, and Sony Columbia will announce further dates in 2019 and 2020.

The above graphic was updated October 28 to reflect the confirmed Marvel Studios Phase 3 releases

Love it. The design minimizes text and gives you only the most basic information to keep it simple. Icon-Date-Title-Comic Publisher.

I don’t like the years wrapping around the edge at all. This would be much easier to understand if each year were shown as its own row.

Knowing that this will update over time, the URL to infographic landing page where updates will be posted (not the Comics Alliance front page) would be immensely helpful to readers. The text URL included in the footer of the infographic image would ensure that readers can find the current, full-size verison.
