Costumed vigilantes may have dominated the box office for the better part of the last decade, but 2016 will truly be the year of the superhero. The arms race between DC and Marvel is just starting to ramp up, and as a result we're getting an absolutely insane influx of iconic character introductions in the coming year. Needless to say, fans couldn't be happier.

With that in mind we compiled a list of the 10 DC and Marvel characters that we think will steal the show in 2016. These range from potentially amazing portrayals (No.10) to ones that may prove to be game changers for the genre as a whole (No.1). We tried to keep personal feelings of Marvel or DC supremacy out of the equation and base these rankings solely on the potential for greatness, the impact they'll have, and just how excited we are to finally see them on screen.

10. Bruce Wayne/Batman
Looking back we really can’t tell what all of the commotion was about. Based off of the marketing material for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice it’s patently obvious that few other live action Batmen have ever looked, sounded, or acted more like the Dark Knight than Ben Affleck's iteration of the character. He’s big, brooding, and downright angry looking. The trailers for have by and large proved polarizing for fans of the DC universe, but by now Affleck has largely won over many of those who doubted him upon his initial casting.
