New installments of popular franchises and movie adaptations of comic books are expected to become the answer to revive the industry from a long drought due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

AceShowbiz - Speaking of superhero, this year doesn't lack comic book adaptations, with "The Batman" (March 4), "Black Adam" (July 29) and "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" (November 11) among the highly-anticipated titles, just to name a few. With Matt Reeves serving behind the lens, the reboot of the Batman film franchise continues to offer a grittier kind of superhero movie. The anticipation is also high to see Robert Pattinson's take on the Caped Crusader. Despite initial objections to his casting, the British actor has managed to convince many that he can perfectly embody Bruce Wayne and his alter ego.

Also kicking off a potential new franchise, "Black Adam" stars Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as the titular character, who was initially planned to appear as a villain in "Shazam!". With the ambitious actor in the lead role and renowned filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra as director, fans can expect nothing less than an exquisite work of art. Meanwhile, an offering from MCU which has rarely disappointed, "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" will answer fans' curiosity as to how the story continues without its titular character while honoring his legacy following the untimely passing of Chadwick Boseman.
