Comic book films have become the biggest thing in movies since the dawn of the 21st century. While characters like Superman, Batman and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles found films before, and even lesser-known characters like Barb Wire and The Rocketeer made it to the big screen, the comic book genre really took shape in the 2000s. Now many of the highest-grossing films of all time are comic book adaptations. Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Image, Valiant and a number of smaller publishers have found great success adapting their work. Comic book movies like Black Panther, Road to Perdition and Persepolis have all been nominated for Academy Awards; though people sometimes call them ‘graphic novels,’ that’s just a highbrow term for lengthy comic book.
