Marvel And DC Have Enough Superheroes For 3,400 More Years Of Movies

Steven Spielberg might have been wrong when he said, “We were around when the Western died and there will be a time when the superhero movie goes the way of the Western. There will come a day when the mythological stories are supplanted by some other genre that possibly some young filmmaker is just thinking about discovering for all of us.”

Marvel Comics and DC Comics, will release 19 movies over the next four years alone.  Marvel and DC could carry on producing movies at their current pace and keep cinemas loaded with capes and lasers for the next 3,400 years. That number comes from an animated history of the genre from Wired, who did the math based on some 17,000 characters owned by the DC, and Marvel.
