Like the poll says -- many superheroes hitting big screens this summer (or winter where I live!). What are you most looking forward to, or are you just sick of the whole trend?

X-Men for me, mostly because that's my favorite comic book series and I like the look of the trailer. Captain America is a close second.

Difficult choice, as I am looking forward to them all (expect The Smurfs ), but my vote goes to Captain America.

It's a toss-up between Green Lantern and Captain America.

If those are the only ones coming out this summer, then I'm gonna have to say none.

Shocked that Blu Man would say that about Smurfs 3D.

X-Men First Class surpisingly, followed closely by Capn America.

Green Lantern a very distant 3rd.

I think Thor looks like an absolute shit-show.

ps: the Smurfs can go suck my smurf

I was excited about Green Lantern until I saw the trailer. Appears to be a never-ending stream of wisecracks.

I love the X-Men the most of all those characters, so I'm going to have to say that movie. Followed closely by Green Lantern.

Next summer is going to be ridiculous. Batman, Superman, Avengers, Spiderman. It's going to be a nerdgasm.

Superman is coming out next summer? I thought they didn't even have a script yet?

X-Men. The others mean nothing to me. Doubly so for Green Lantern if Kirby Krackle's "Ring Capacity" isn't involved somehow (playing over the end credits, ideally).

I don't have allegiances to any of them, character or comic brand, but I've enjoyed 3/4 of the X-Men movies* so I'm looking forward to First Class.

*X3 is the odd one out. I enjoyed Wolverine despite the shoddy CGI.

I haven't seen the X-Men trailer as yet, but none of the other trailers have me all that excited about any of them.
