2016 may have been a weird year for movies, but in the Marvel and DC worlds, fans were introduced to many new players. The DC Extended Universe brought in their versions of Batman, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn and more, while in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Panther and Doctor Strange were two of the more notable characters to be thrown into the mix. Granted, not all of these movies were well received, but if you're a longtime comic book fan like myself, seeing new versions of heroes and villains on the big screen is a treat.

Looking ahead to 2017, there are a lot of other new characters who will be put in the spotlight, so we've gathered together the 10 people from the Marvel and DC universe we believe will steal the show. Some of these characters are new, while others haven't had the proper amount of time to show off. Let's kick this off with someone who's familiar, yet fresh at the same time.

Baby Groot

Baby Groot

Is it cheating to have someone who's a smaller version of a major character we've already seen? Well, it's totally worth it, because Baby Groot is absolutely fantastic! Granted, we already knew how adorable the tinier sentient tree thanks to Guardians of the Galaxy's ending, but now that he's mobile again, he can be both adorable and dangerous to any enemies that get in his way. However, like his taller self, Baby Groot isn't ranking high in the intelligence department. Nevertheless, judging by the reaction online, he's one of the main things people are looking forward to in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
