Fortunately, it looks like things aren’t going to be slowing down next year. Here is an early look at the most anticipated comic book movies of 2013. Because 2013 is still a longs way off, keep in mind that these release dates aren’t set in stone and may change.

Superman: Man Of Steel – For those lamenting the end of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, Superman: Man of Steel might be the relief they need.
