With Iron Man, the Hulk, the Black Widow, Thor, Hawkeye, and Captain America assembling The Avengers, Marvel has been dominating the summer box office.

However, before finally putting together "Earth's Mightiest Heroes" on the big screen for the first time, Marvel already took a bite of the comic-book/superhero genre with Wesley Snipes as half-human, half-vampire slayer Blade in three films, Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man in director Sam Raimi's trilogy, and made Hugh Jackman a household name as Logan/Wolverine in the X-Men franchise.

Now, speaking of mutants, there may not be a single one in X-Men: Days of Future Past, as younger and future selves of Charles Xavier/Professor X (Sir Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy) and Erik Lensherr/Magneto (Sir Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender) teams up with Wolverine (Jackman), who goes back in time to prevent a war that will be wage on mutants.

Since Andrew Garfield took the great responsibility of succeeding Tobey Maguire, Spider-Man went from friendly neighborhood web-slinger to The Amazing Spider-Man, whose sequel finds Peter Parker (Garfield) being part of a "sinister" plan, as he takes on Electro (Jamie Foxx), the Rhino (Paul Giamatti), and the Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan).

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 spins its way into theaters May 2, while X-Men: Days of Future Past prepares for battle three weeks later on May 23.
