Top Marvel Movies To Look Forward To In 2018
DC Comics and Marvel is the iOS vs Android of cinema. While Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy is still one of the best superhero franchise ever made, Marvel has enjoyed more success as a collective film franchise. 2018, for Marvel at least, looks very exciting and one of the releases is just around the corner.
Let’s take a look at the top Marvel films that we are extremely excited for!
Avengers: Infinity War
Release date: April 27th, 2018
Cast: Rober Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johanson, Chadwick Boseman
The third part of this epic superhero franchise, the Avengers unites a lot of the famous superheroes from MCU as well as the comics. The recent success of Black Panther meant that the anticipation around the film is even more. This time around, the Avengers will unite to fight Thanos as he attempts to take all the six infinity stones.
The film will have appearances from the Guardians of the Galaxy (Groot!), Spider-Man, Dr Strange, Ant-Man and more. There is no doubt that the role of T’Challa or Black Panther will garner a lot of attention as well. This could also be the penultimate film where we see Robert Downey Jr. as Iron-Man.
Release Date: May 16th, 2018
Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin
A sequel to the 2016 smash hit Deadpool, Deadpool 2 still doesn’t officially have a name. In fact, the recent character trailer of Cable is the best official footage we have of the film so far. Apart from regenerating, Deadpool also has the ability to break the fourth wall. This is where a character talks directly to a reader or viewer by acknowledging that this is all made-up.
The character introduction of Cable already has us laughing in splits. The dig at Superman’s moustache is a classic example of Deadpool and why it is so famous. The film is definitely not for kids and is expected to receive a few cuts before it is released in India.
Ant-Man and the Wasp
Release Date: June 29th, 2018
Cast: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas
Not the most iconic or glamourous superhero but, the Ant-Man in 2015 was a great film. Right from the character arc to the subtle humour, the Ant-Man deserved a sequel and so it gets. Apart from its own movie, the Ant-Man will also be a part of Infinity War. With a brilliant actor like Paul Rudd with its comic timing, the new Ant-Man film is expected to be a great follow-up.
Release Date: October 5th, 2018
Cast: Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Woody Harrelson
One of the most loved and admired anti-hero in Marvel Comics, Venom finally has a standalone film. Tom Hardy will dawn the role of Venom. The release of the film is a few months away but, the first teaser trailer is enough to get us excited about it. Our first and only glimpse at Venom was in Spider-Man 3. However, this time around, it is expected to do better justice to the legend of Venom.
