Out of all US movie franchises (e.g. Superman, Batman, X-men, etc.), which one had a reboot done after the least amount of time? To specify what a "reboot" is, I'll quote another related post:

To clarify, the term reboot in this question refers to a movie that:

  • differs from the previously existing canon in a significant way, and
  • starts over a continued story of some sort, so more than just one isolated movie.

That's how I would distinguish it from a remake, even though I doubt that this is a definition everyone agrees with.

I actually found this article showing the Hollywood's fastest reboots, some of them below:

Name - Original Film Year release - Reboot Year Release

  • The Amazing Spider-Man - 2002 - 2012
  • Rise of the Planet of the Apes - 1968 - 2001
  • Left Behind - 2005 - 2014
  • The Incredible Hulk - 2003 - 2008
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - 2007 - 2014

    10, 33 (!!), 9, 5, and 7. One of those seems a bit out of place. – Anthony Grist May 10 '17 at 10:41

    And Spider-Man is getting rebooted again. – SiXandSeven8ths May 10 '17 at 20:07

How about the Punisher movies? 2004 and 2008. The second one was intended as a sequel but ended up being a reboot. Also, there was a 1989 Punisher movie, but I'm not sure it counts. If it does, there are 2 reboots in 19 years.
