2016 has already been an impressive year for Marvel Studios.
Daredevil Season 2 was released back in March to further critical acclaim, continuing the absolute roll the TV side of things has been on after Season 1 and then Jessica Jones.
Things have been even better on the big screen, with Captain America: Civil War giving us not just the best superhero movie of the year, but one of the best films of 2016 period, and the perfect bounceback after an underwhelming 2015 in terms of the movies released.
Of course, things aren't going to stop there though, and nor will Marvel be resting on their laurels. They've still got another major film and TV series to come this year, and then they're really ramping it up in 2017 and beyond - moving to three films a year in order to incorporate their ever expanding slate, and increasing the number of TV series as well (2018 will be bringing three to Netflix alone).
While there's always the chance of fatigue (something long warned about, though it's yet to truly set in), the next few years promise to make the Marvel Cinematic Universe even bigger and, based on how quite a few of these sound, better.
NCTJ-qualified journalist. Most definitely not a racing driver. Drink too much tea; eat too much peanut butter; watch too much TV. Sadly only the latter paying off so far.
A mix of wise-old man in a young man's body with a child-like wonder about him and a great otherworldly sensibility.
