Happy New Year! It’s 2018 and I’m super excited as this year we are going to be spoilt rotten with superhero movies. In this post I’m going to run through some of the big superhero movies coming out this year.
|Marvel movies galore!|
In April, New Mutants is coming out. If you are an X-Men fan then this will be right up your street. It’s about a group of teenage mutants and it looks really dark and eerie, blending the superhero genre with horror.
Also in April the film everyone has been waiting for will finally arrive... it’s Avengers: Infinity War. I’m so excited for this. The trailer looks incredible and this has got to be the biggest team up movie ever. We get to see all our favourite on screen Marvel hero’s joining forces - what more could you want!?
Moving onto June and prepare to see the funniest comic book character back in action. It’s Deadpool 2. The first film was an absolute hit and Ryan Reynolds did an amazing job bringing this comical character to life on screen. I’m hoping the sequel will be just as good, packed full of crazy action and laugh out loud comedy.
Also in June, The Incredibles are making a comeback after fourteen years. Yes, it really has been that long. So, get ready to see the superhero crime fighting family back on the big screen.
In July we get yet another Marvel treat with Ant Man and The Wasp. This will be the first Marvel Universe movie to follow Infinity War, so it’s going to be really interesting to see the what direction the plot will go in.
Onto October and Sony is releasing the Venom movie. We really don’t know much about this film so far, so hopefully soon we will get some details soon.
In November Fox is releasing X-Men: Dark Phoenix. The X-Men franchise is hugely popular so it’s going to be great to see a new addition and to see Sophie Turner develop the character of young Jean Grey further.
And finally, DC are making an appearance next year in December with the release of Aquaman. Now we all know DC’s track record with films has been far from perfect, but I do think Jason Moama plays Aquaman really well. I feel like DC are slowly learning from their mistakes, so hopefully we will start to see better films from them.
With superhero films alone we are being spoilt in 2018, but there are loads of other geeky films coming out as well, including: Solo-A Star Wars Story, Tomb Raider and Ready Player One. Honestly, 2018 is going to be a big year for nerdy film fans - aren’t we lucky?!
Let me know in the comments what films you’re excited for this year. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
