After the successful release of Universal’s Minions, and Marvel’s blockbuster Ant Man, the 12th entry in the ever growing Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Marvel fans are eagerly waiting for their next release. Here are the movies Hollywood is gearing up for the release:
Deadpool (2016): With the trailer out just a few days back, this sequel to one of the characters in the X Men franchise, has already garnered enough attention of the audience to get itself a major opening in its February, 2016 release. Academy Award winner Ryan Reynolds is reprising his role as Wade/ Deadpool, from X Men Origins: Wolverine. By the looks of it, the film looks a sure shot fun, being touted as an action-comedy, going by the trailer. And with news of the X Men taking part in Avengers: Infinity War, he could surely make it all the more interesting.
Captain America: Civil War (2016): Or we could say Avengers 3, as we will get to see the new Avengers in this third instalment of the Captain America, and a sequel to The Winter Soldier. It will be the 13th instalment in the MCU. This film (as sources say), might be the final film where fans will get to see Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark. It has garnered the interest of the audience ever since the inception of its title. Directors Anthony and Joe Russo, are surely going to give the audiences a mini-Avengers, with the likes of Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson portraying the roles of Steve Rogers, Tony Stark and Black Widow respectively, with Anthony Mackie as Falcon, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, and news of Paul Rudd as the Ant Man, also joining the cast. As the end credits of Ant Man, giving us a hint of what is in store in Civil War, with Sam Wilson taking the name of Ant Man, confirmed Paul Rudd to be a part of Civil War, we are sure to have a blast. May 3, 2016, come soon.
Batman VS Superman Dawn of Justice (2016): With both Marvel and DC arriving with their respective films on May 3, 2016, in the form of Civil War, and Dawn of Justice, it is sure to be a blockbuster weekend. Keeping both the superheroes, Batman, played by Ben Affleck, and Superman, played by Henry Cavill, who will be reprising his role from Man of Steel, aside, the major attraction of this DC action adventure will be the presence of Wonder Woman, which will be played by Gal Gadot, of The Fast and the Furious fame. Although not present in the first trailer, she made a good impact on the audiences and critics alike in the Comic Con trailer. The film has been in news, more for its release date rather than it having two of the biggest superheroes of the DC galaxy. Audiences are set for a summer 2016 action extravaganza.
Spectre (2015): Bond is back, and this time on a larger scale. The twenty-fourth instalment in the Bond film series, which dates back to many years, is set for release in November this year. With Daniel Craig coming back as James Bond, in his fourth performance in the iconic role, this film deals with his past, and how he meets an organisation known only as SPECTRE. It also has Christopher Waltz, as the film’s antagonist. The main question which lies in front of the makers, is whether it can match the same status which Skyfall achieved in 2013, which was said to be the best Bond film ever made.
Suicide Squad (2016): In a first of its kind, it is the third instalment in the DCEU (DC Extended Universe). It is based on an antihero team who fights justice, but with a bad angle. And as they say, Justice has a bad side. The film is set to release on August 5, 2016, having stars like Will Smith and Jai Courtney to its cast. Coming after the release of Batman VS Superman Dawn of Justice, the film will be expected to take the DC Universe ahead, since being only the third film of the universe. Going by the trailer, it seems a different kind of a film. The main attraction of the film is the arrival of a new Joker in the DC Universe. Nothing much is known about the same though, but it seems the audience will get to see the Joker in an all new avatar.
