Comprehensive chronological list of superhero movies

As comprehensive a list as I can make of superhero movies (at least the English language movies), from the earliest to most recent. The list includes theatrical, TV, and straight-to-video releases, animated features, shorts, superhero themed spinoffs of non-superhero series, proto-superheroes such as Zorro, the Lone Ranger and the Scarlet Pimpernel, and documentaries about superheroes, publishers, or comic creators primarily associated with superheroes, or behind-the-scenes documentaries about superhero movies and television shows. It does NOT include fanfilms or foreign knock-offs, although some of those may have slipped through the cracks onto the list.

My goal is to eventually watch all of them, so if you see one I've missed, please, let me know!
