Is one less rom-com we have to deal with. So yes, we do need more superhero movies.
As far as Jay's picks, Jay, you do know that the DC Animated Universe, "Batman: The Brave and the Bold," and "Young Justice" have been doing almost all of these and other characters proud for the past decade, right? T'Challa, the Black Panther, is also a main character in Disney/Marvel's "Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes," where he not only displays outstanding skills across the board from technology to combat, but also mediates a constant debate between Tony Stark and Thor over technology.
Plus, Cyborg got a reboot (!) in the New 52 line of DC Comics.
The Fantastic Four are, however, foundering in the comic book medium as well as in film. I do think a potential film reboot might be behind the decision to off Johnny Storm (The Human Torch), as this keeps Chris Evans free to be Captain America.
