Year of the Hero | Jupiter@Nite | 1.13.11

This weekend marks the beginning of what is going to be a HUGE year for comic book and superhero movies. Green Hornet is only the first of many being released this year, including Thor, Captain America, Green Lantern, X-Men First Class and MORE!

Since the guys don’t have a lot of interest in this weekend’s offering, we’ll be focusing more on what’s coming down the pipe for the rest of the year. Are they destined to be flops and bombs, or blockbuster box-office-smashing megahits?
