So between right now and 2020 there are 33 movies scheduled to come out based on Marvel and DC properties. Thats nerdgasm for your ears, plus there is basically no Marvel based ones announced after 2018 yet, so you can probably expect like 40 in the next 5 years.
I decided to do some brain thinking and drop a few thoughts on each movie listed for release.
May 1, 2015 – The Avengers: Age of Ultron
Will quite possibly be the greatest movie of all time. I am way too excite. The only issue I see with this movie is lots of Elizabeth Olsen and she won’t be my wife. :(
July 17, 2015 – Ant-Man
Really interested in seeing where/how this goes. They’re straying actually pretty far from the source material which is unusual for Marvel. I have faith they’ll pull it off.
August 7, 2015 – Fantastic Four
I have no idea what they are doing here. They’ve been so tight-lipped about it. I wonder if Fox will tie it in to their X-men world or not. Part of me wants them to pull it off, part of me wants them to fail. If it fails again, I can see Fox defaulting it back to Marvel.
February 12, 2016 – Deadpool
I hope people expect this movie to be what it is. I think a lot of people aren’t properly familiar with Deadpool and might expect something else. But if it emulates that test footage and they walk the appropriate line between breaking the 4th wall, humour and shocking violence they’ll have something.
March 25, 2016 – Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice
I don’t know if I could possibly be less enthusiastic about this movie. I want DC to knock it out of the park, but I just has such little faith in them. Also, not tying their TV/Movie universes together really pisses me off.
May 6, 2016 – Captain America 3 (Fallen Son/Civil War)
I’m not a huge fan of the Civil War. At all. I was really disappointed by the main story arc of it. The on-screen rendition is already behind the 8-ball, especially without the Xmen and Spider Man. They’re really going to be stretching for a full slate of heroes.
Widow, Hawkeye, Daredevil (Netflix), Powerman (Netflix), Ironfist (Netflix), Powerwoman (Netflix), Hulk, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Deathlok (TV), Ant Man, Iron Man, Cap, Falcon, War Machine, Mockingbird (TV).
Thats it. It can only really be “good” guys. Asgardians are off in space. Maybe you can toss in the Winter Soldier. But are Widow, Hawkeye, Falcon, Mockingbird, really “super humans”? They’re just badasses. They have no abilities to register but being highly skilled.
This would make more sense AFTER Dr Strange and Ms Marvel because then at least you have a couple more people with actual reason to be involved.
