What A Time To Be Alive

What A Time To Be Alive

Can we all stop just for minute and recognize what's going on here!?

12 years ago: 
Batman was still looked at as a cinematic failure (thanks to 'Batman & Robin'). Superman's film history was still up in the air.
The idea of a Marvel Cinematic Universe was nothing more than a fantasy we all wanted but never thought we would actually get.
Superhero tv shows were mostly panned by both critics and fans.

Fast forward to 2016, and we're getting to witness history.
We started the year with the perfect 'Deadpool' movie. Something we never would have guessed would happen.
For the first time ever, The Dark Knight & The Man of Steel will both be in a film together. 'Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice' will feature the two heroes duking it out and as an added bonus, Wonder Woman will be on screen with them as well. The Trinity, on the big screen!
We're going into season 2 of Daredevil on Netflix after a fantastic season 1 of both Daredevil and Jessica Jones, with an upcoming Luke Cage, and Iron Fist series on the horizon.
Then we're getting our 12th MCU film 'Captain America: Civil War' featuring more pieces of comic history come to life. For the first time, we're getting to see Ant-man, Black Panther, and Spider-Man interact on the big screen with the Avengers we've been watching for 8 years.
Last but not least, we'll be getting a 13th MCU film in the 'Doctor Strange' movie. Something else we never thought we would see

I see many of us being so cynical all the time of the little nitpicks like suit designs, film style, casting choices etc. We have become so used to these superhero films that we've begun taking them for granted! I wrote this for us all to just take a minute to sit back, breathe, and realize just how amazing this time is for us!
