The world is officially superhero obsessed, with a massive 13 action-packed movies of the popular genre set to be released through to the end of next year.
With Marvel's latest blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War on track to earn $1 billion worldwide less than two weeks since it aired, it's evident we're a society of diehard superhero fans.
It's a phenomenon movie producers are clearly aware of, with a long and exciting line-up of films on the way until the end of 2019 and into 2020.
The news comes as Hollywood filmmakers are being offered bigger tax breaks to lure blockbuster productions to Australia.
The $140 million federal budget sweetener will effectively double the existing rebate offered for films to 30 per cent.
"Many, many producers want to make films in Australia because they love our talent, they love our people," Communications Minister Mitch Fifield told reporters on the Gold Coast on Friday.
"What this does is it gives them the excuse, and the reason, to do just that."
Foreign Minister Julie Bishop believes Australia needs the added incentive to remain competitive in the ultra-competitive world of international film and television production.
Ms Bishop is confident the cash injection will guarantee a pipeline of work for studios, which often lay empty.
"I'm delighted that this will mean more jobs for talented, skilled Australians," Ms Bishop told reporters.
"Whether it's in acting, producing, directing, set design, animation, cinematography, make-up, hair-styling - all the components that make up a brilliant film production here in Australia."
These are the flicks we have to look forward to:
