Saturn Awards Acknowledge Comics Film Boom

Saturn_AwardThe Comic Book Movie renaissance has most definitely arrived.

This year’s Saturn awards, which are awarded by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Films, has added a new category to its lineup: Best Comic-to-Film Adaptation.

It is telling that the state of the industry has evolved to the point where there are enough movies annually that meet the criteria to merit a separate category of their own.

The inaugural nominees are:

Iron Man 3
Marvel / Walt Disney

Man of Steel
Warner Bros.

Thor: The Dark World
Marvel / Walt Disney

The Wolverine
20th Century Fox
