Thor: Ragnarok

 

 

Well.. well what can we expect from this film?! This will be the third motion picture for the character Thor and it seems with each movie, the tone changes. The first film was an intro for the character in the cinematic universe. Thor becomes a hero for Earth as well proving himself worthy in his realm of Asgard. Thor’s second film had a more darker theme, illustrating the darker enemies of Asgard who seek a destructive weapon for power and control. The film was also a major piece to the upcoming film Infinity War.  In this trailer of Ragnarok, we see Asgard once again under attack but this time by Hela, ruler of Valhalla. Mjolnir is destroyed and it looks as if Thor is taken captive and shipped to a distant part of the universe. Now the film changes giving off the similar retro feel we get with the Guardians of the Galaxy film. Thor no longer looking as the hero we recognize. He’s taken on the look of a gladiator and to our surprise, we will seen Thor fighting the Hulk once again. We can also see elements of the World War Hulk in play but instantly have fans wondering: how could The Hulk been captured to become a gladiator off Earth? Last we seen of The Hulk was the Age of Ultron, as he left his team behind after their fight with Ultron.  This is the first of many trailers to come, Thor: Ragnarok will release in November…..when that time comes who will win in their battle this time: Thor or The Hulk?

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

 

 

The saga continues this Christmas with Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi. At the ending of Episode 7, Rey delivers Anakin’s lightsaber to Luke, who seemed surprised that the lightsaber made its way back to him. In this film you can see Rey going through her lightsaber training and the influence she has on the Force with the rising rocks. Kylo Ren  continued his training as well, after surviving his near death experience by Rey. Where are his strength levels within the Force and will get a deeper insight on his master Supreme Leader Snoke? We can see Finn still on his path of healing and Poe side by side with his droid BB-8. Not much is revealed in this trailer which means there will be plenty of surprises to come. Many fans would say the The Force Awakens has lots of elements of A New Hope. So will the Last Jedi pick elements from The Empire Strikes Back? If so this could be an interesting film but what is shocking is hearing Luke in the narrative saying the Jedi must end. What does this mean?? In December we will get our answer…

Wonder Woman 2017

DC Comics is at a good pace creating feature films for their iconic characters. This 2017 feature of Wonder Woman will be the first major female role in the comic universe and she will be the second member of the Justice League to bring a new visual of her history on-screen. The costume design and visual effects created for Woman Woman will bring this character to life, really portraying to the audience how she is a valuable hero and how she measures equally with her male companions.  From the preview we see how the Amazons are separated from the world conflicts on the secret island of Themiscyra.  In the Justice League trailer , the Amazon warriors are at battle with what could be Darkseid’s legion of Parademons. Will these two movies tie in with one another in some way? Are the Amazons, one of the sole keepers of a Mother Box? Just like in her comic book history, Diana will choose to enter man’s world, putting her training to use fighting for,, well on June 2nd, we will see the details of the conflict!

Justice League

 

Finally, DC Comics is catching up to Marvel Studios with their super team The Justice League! This film is following up to the 2016 Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice where Bruce and Diana are searching for the meta humans found in Lex Luthor computer files. Bruce believes he could form a team to help defend Earth against an upcoming galactic threat ( Darkseid). So far we see Cyborg, The Flash and Aquaman working alongside Batman and Wonder Woman battling Parademons, who seem to be on a mission to collect Mother Boxes on Earth. It is rumored that Superman will return even though we haven’t seen him in this trailer. Will Green Lantern make an appearance in this film or will there be another film that will present him? These questions will be answer this upcoming November when the film is release. With the special effects and action packed sequences seen in this trailer, The Justice League may give the Avengers a run for their money in the box office! We’ll see in 7 more months!!

Spiderman: Homecoming

 

This will be the sixth Spiderman film to date since 2002. Spiderman is one of the most popular Marvel heroes out there and it seems with this film, this could be the greatest Spiderman. This version of Spiderman is a younger hero than the others and he will be the protegé of Iron Man. The Avengers is the top respected team in this cinematic universe and Peter seems to do what he can to impress and be accepted by Tony Stark. Tony in this film is responsible for the creation of the Spidey suit which in fact is the best version to date. With Tony’s tech, we can see the all the upgrades made to the costume, thus bringing out the full potential in the wall crawler. Vulture is the primary villain of this movie and there is possibly another not yet mentioned. Are you ready for this Spiderman? Will he become an official member of the Avengers? July 7th is when Spiderman: Homecoming hits theaters. STAY TUNED!!

Black Panther

 

Black Panther will finally get his solo release February 16 2018. Black Panther made his intro to the cinematic world in Avengers: Civil War. In the end of that film, T’Challa brought Captain America and Bucky back in his home of Wakanda.This film appears to be focused in Wakanda where the conflict presides. Andy Serkis will replay his character from Age of Ultron, which will have a more significant role in the Black Panther, bringing his story full circle between the two films. Will this 2018 feature be the beginning of a possible standalone series or will this character somehow be involved with the upcoming threat that awaits Marvel heroes in the Infinity War?
