If 2016 is any indication, comic book movies are here to stay.

While directors like Steven Spielberg might predict the imminent demise of the superhero movie genre, it's clear studios won't be slowing down their superhero output anytime soon. Next year is going to bring a new wave of big-budget epics, featuring costumed do-gooders waging war against the forces of evil (or in some cases, each other).

From "Batman v Superman" to "Captain America: Civil War," these are the six superhero movies we're excited to see next year.
