One of the biggest sources for movies in Hollywood today is Comic Book adaptations.
The recent comic book movie trend started with X-men in 2000 but really kicked into high gear in 2008 with Iron Man and The Dark Knight. In 2011 there were 7 or 8, depending on how you count, movies that came from original comic book material and many more that were based on comic book type themes.
This past summer we saw a summer with 4 big budget high profile Super Hero movies : Thor, Green Lantern, X-men : First Class, and Captain America. And this trend is going full speed ahead going into 2012 with Ghost Rider already released and Avengers, Amazing Spider-Man and The Dark Knight Rises coming out this summer and smaller profile ones coming out throughout the year.
