Now that we are into the new year. It is a safe bet to say that we have many different movies coming out this year we can look forward to. 2017 definitely had it’s perks with movies, but from what it’s looking like, 2018 will take the cake with upcoming movies. So here’s a list of movies we’ve got to look forward to this upcoming year. This is in no particular order but just a list of some of the movies we have coming this year.
Avengers: Infinity War
This is definitely the movie most geeks are looking forward to this year. Avengers Infinity War is 10 years in the making for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Infinity War is the culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the first Avengers movie with the tease of one of the Marvel universes’ most formidable villains, The Mad Titan Thanos. We will see every Marvel superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in this movie and their will be stakes, with the possibility that many different characters might die, If not all of them.
This is the one that seems like it could really surprise people. With the recent deal between Fox & Disney, we will likely not get a sequel unless Disney says otherwise. But the idea of a superhero horror movie is different. It’s sounds like it could really be a really great movie when done right and i feel like this will definitely surprise people.
Another superhero movie which is early in the year that many are looking forward to. Black Panther is the first superhero movie to have most of the cast being an African-American cast and not to mention a phenomenal one as well. This movie is the perfect way to kick off the new year.
After the success of the first Deadpool movie starring Ryan Reynolds, it’s no wonder that so many people are looking forward to Deadpool 2. Having a star like Ryan Reynolds as the lead again as Wade Wilson aka Deadpool and Josh Brolin as the mutant time traveler known as Cable/Nathan Summers. Not to mention returning characters such as Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead. This movie looks like it’s going to be just as fun, if not more than the original.
Despite it not having Spider Man in it. Venom starring Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock/Venom has an overall stellar cast which could make this movie worthwhile. It could be a hit or miss but with Venom being one of the most popular villains in the Marvel Universe, we will see if people enjoy it.
Solo: A Star Wars Story
The Han Solo movie is another Star Wars film which takes place before A New Hope and is a movie a lot of people are looking forward to. While it is disappointing that it’s not starring Harrison Ford since Han Solo is his character, it still looks like this movie could have promise.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
The sequel to the successful Jurassic World movie from 2015, Fallen Kingdom looks like it will be an enjoyable ride. The cast and director have teased that there will be new and more dinosaurs in this movie like never before. Let’s hope they are right since that is what most people are going to see this movie for.
Pacific Rim: Uprising
While the first Pacific Rim movie should have just been one movie and one movie alone, since it concluded it’s story at the end of it’s movie, Pacific Rim: Uprising looks like it could be worthwhile seeing this year.
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse
From the trailer of this movie, it looks like it could be very promising. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, having Miles Morales as the lead, is a movie about how after Peter Parker was murdered by the Green Goblin, Miles takes over the mantle of the web-head.
With the Transformers movies not being so critically acclaimed, it is not a surprise if anyone is looking forward to this movie. But with one of the favorite characters in the Transformers franchise being Bumblebee, it felt necessary to add this. While it’s doubtful the film will do great among fans, it will likely still be seen and earn a lot of money like most of the Transformer installments.
The next installment in the DC Extended Universe. Aquaman has a great overall cast with an phenomenal director. Hopefully, it’ll be as enjoyable as Wonder Woman with an interesting story surrounding Aquaman and Atlantis.
The reboot to the Predator franchise. This upcoming film stars Boyd Holbrook and Olivia Munn. While there is not much really known yet regarding the overall plot, it is still something to look forward to.
Maze Runner: The Death Cure
The final installment of the Maze Runner Trilogy. This movie comes out in the beginning of the year in January and is something to look forward to since many fans enjoyed the first two Maze Runner films.
The Incredibles 2
This movie takes place right after the first Incredibles movie. The Incredibles 2 is something a lot of people are looking forward to in the summer, taking everybody back to their childhood. Let’s hope the sequel is just as worthwhile.
X Men: Dark Phoenix
The sequel to 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse, X-Men: Dark Phoenix is directed and produced by Simon Kinberg. The movie takes place 10 years after X-Men: Apocalypse and is going to have Jean Grey becoming the Phoenix when she travels into space with the rest of the X-Men. It could be something worthwhile seeing, since Simon Kinberg has promised it will be very true to the original Dark Phoenix storyline, which was one of Marvel’s most promising stories. But we will just have to wait and see.
Honorable mentions are Ready Player One, A Wrinkle In Time, Ant-Man & The Wasp, The Fantastic Beasts Sequel, and Mary Poppins Returns.
