After Deadpool, a new Captain America movie, Suicide Squad and Doctor Strange were released in 2016, here’s a look at some of the superheroes heading to the big screen this year.
Hugh Jackman is set to play Wolverine for the ninth and final time in this third and last X-Men spin-off dedicated to the mutant with metal claws. Inspired by the Old Man Logan comic book, this installment appears to be more violent than its predecessors.
A superhero movie with a female director and a female lead has got to be a first. The origins of the famous Amazonian superheroine – less well-known than those of her male counterparts – are the subject of this movie directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster). Seen previously in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Gal Gadot will be back playing Wonder Woman, this time accompanied by Chris Pine and Robin Wright.
Since Tobey Maguire hung up his cape after Sam Raimi’s trilogy, and Andrew Garfield stepped down after Marc Webb’s pair of The Amazing Spider-Man movies, it’s Tom Holland who will be stepping into Spider-Man’s costume for this latest movie.
Seen in Captain America: Civil War, next summer sees the superhero go up against Vulture, an enemy played by Michael Keaton. Thanks to a new partnership between Marvel and Sony, Robert Downey Jr will also star in the movie, in the role of Tony Stark/Iron Man.
Marvel’s Norse god returns in fall 2017 for a third adventure which sees him cross paths with a powerful and mysterious adversary played by Cate Blanchett. Chris Hemsworth will once again take the lead role in a star cast featuring Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Hopkins and Idris Elba. Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) is also set to make an appearance.
The DC Comics heroes are joining forces to battle a fearsome enemy. The movie brings together Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) in the same production. The movie also introduces Aquaman (Jason Momoa), ahead of his solo movie coming 2018, and the actor JK Simmons, in the role of Commissioner Gordon. – AFP Relaxnews
