Fans of comic book movies have been treated well in recent months. DC Comics took the world by surprise back in June with “Wonder Woman,” their biggest hit yet, but Marvel Comics fans have still been getting their fill with the likes of “Guardians of the Galaxy” Vol. 2 and “Spider-Man Homecoming” back in June. However, the excitement didn’t end over the summer.
