If there ever was a time to get excited about the movie industry, it would be now. With a whole host of movies coming from both comic brands, fans of super hero movies are in for a treat. Starting with Avengers Age of Ultron.
Following that, we can look forward to:
Ant-Man – July 17 2015
Captain America: Civil War – May 6 2016
Doctor Strange – November 4 2016
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 – May 5 2017
Thor: Ragnarok – July 28 2017
Black Panther – November 3 2017
Avengers: Infinity War: Part I – May 4 2018
Captain Marvel – July 6 2018
Inhumans – November 2 2018
Avengers: Infinity War: Part II – May 3 2019.
We also got the final xmen to look forward to in 2016, Xmen: Apocalypse. Some exciting stuff coming from Marvel.
Over at Warner Bros. We have the final instalment of the Hobbit series. At first I wasn’t sure that they would be able to make 3 movies out of a single book, but Peter Jackson has proven himself a good director( We will forgive him for the inclusion of legolas in the movies). Here it is, The Battle of Five Armies, and it promises to be bigger than the battles from Lord of the rings Return of the King. Epic stuff.
Also from the Warner Bros. camp we have the DC comic movies coming soon:
– “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” directed by Zack Snyder (2016)
– “Suicide Squad,” directed by David Ayer (2016)
– “Wonder Woman,” starring Gal Gadot (2017)
– “Justice League Part One,” directed by Zack Snyder, with Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams reprising their roles (2017)
– “The Flash,” starring Ezra Miller (2018)
– “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa (2018)
– “Shazam” (2019)
– “Justice League Part Two,” directed by Zack Snyder (2019)
– “Cyborg,” starring Ray Fisher (2020)
– “Green Lantern” (2020)
None of these films are going to even be mentioned at the oscars and golden globes, but I’m willing to bet they are going to rack in hundreds of millions. Rightfully so I believe.
Many of the people aged between 20-30 today grew up watching these characters during our morning cartoon shows, and now we get to enjoy the magic all over again on the big screen. It gives us the chance to feel like 5 years olds again with endless imagination. Can’t ask for more than that.
