2016 is bringing a number of epic battles from the pages of our favorite comics to the big screen. Over on Netflix, we’ve seen Daredevil take on The Punisher and The Hand. The Green Arrow and The Flash have their hands full with Hive and Zoom. And of course, there was ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’.
