24 Best Non-Marvel or DC Comic Book Adaptations
It took only 20 Marvel films to give Black Widow Scarlett Johansson her own solo film, but it wasn’t her first or even her second comic book character. We just reached the point where the most popular actors played at least a few comic book characters before retiring.

Here are some great and important ones, some of which you may have forgotten about when you started on this page.
