One million superhero movies are piling up to be released

Many Superhero Movies

Actually, that's not accurate, but maybe this is: "Marvel and DC Movies Will Flood Theaters in 2021 and 2022 — If They Can All Be Made in Time"

Assuming the films come out, we're going to get a chance to see if "superhero movie fatigue" is real.

The question stated here before is 'the question is fast becoming not when will be the right time to start releasing movies again and make a profit, but if there will be enough movie theaters still in operation to make a profit when/if Hollywood finally stops hoarding their productions.'

Article at Variety presents what they call a 'cascade' of superhero movies. Here's what they're talking about (mostly MCU movies) so we added in the DC films, too, getting 19 all together:

Spider-Man 3 to have Dr. Strange

Story at gizmodo - with Benedict Cumberbatch now in the cast, and also Electro (Jamie Foxx), it would indicate a multiverse story, getting together the alternative Spider-Man world of Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man with the current MCU world of Dr. Strange. Probably connects up to Director Sam Raimi's coming film with Benedict Cumberbatch Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
