From already released trailers and soundtracks accredited to these movies. In no particular order, Here are my most anticipated movies for the year:
- Thor: Ragnarok
With his slight disappearance and appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron and a cameo in Doctor Strange, we are excited to see what the Norse God of Thunder has been up to since his departure from earth. Chris Hemsworth reprising his role as Thor, Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Anthony Hopkins (Odin), Jamie Alexander (Lady Sif), and the Three warriors and an all new set of cast members with Cate Blanchett as Hela (villain), Karl Urban and Jeff Goldblum. Thor Ragnarok will definitely be an exciting superhero movie to watch out for.
Release Date: July 28th
- Spiderman: Homecoming
After his debut in Captain America: Civil Wars, Tom Holland was introduced to the World as the new Spiderman/Peter Parker. With Sony and MCU finally cutting a deal and Spiderman finally under the Marvel umbrella, it’s safe to say Tom Holland might just be the best version of Spiderman to date, with Robert Downey Jr taking on his role as Tony Stark (Iron Man), a mentor and benefactor to Tom Holland Spiderman character stuck between the life and hurdles of a teenager and becoming a superhero. The film’s plot looks plenty fun. Michael Keaton will be playing the villain and bad guy (Adrian Toomes/The Vulture)
Release Date: July 7th
- Wonder Woman
One thing I agreed with in DC’s Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice was Gal Godot’s role as Wonder Woman as she stole every scene she appeared in, with its official solo movie and Wonder Woman making history as the first solo female superhero movie. From the first look at the trailer, Wonder Woman promises to be plenty exciting.
Release Date : June 2nd
- Justice League
So for all DC comic fans and all superhero fans, Justice League looks to be an interesting film. The movie premise is set after the BVS: Dawn of Justice with events and many of the characters set Post-BVS. We’ll finally see DC’s Justice League match its power with Marvel’s Avengers. It is safe to say (regardless of the backlash towards BVS and Suicide Squad) that Cinema goers, Movie fans and Superhero fans will definitely be checking this movie out once it is released.
Release Date: November 17th
- Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2
In 2014, the Guardians of the galaxy took the world by storm, it was inevitable that a sequel would be released eventually. The Galaxy’s misfits are ready to save the galaxy yet again in this upcoming sequel, with an incredible trailer released, I can’t wait to watch this particular movie (my #1 must see for the year). Oh! and Groot!!
Release Date: May 5th
- Blade Runner 2049:
The first Blade Runner (1982) is one of the best science fiction films ever to be made by Ridley Scott, after almost three decades Ridley Scott and Denis Villeneuve (Director of the Arrival and Sicario) partner together in this upcoming sequel. Harrison Ford will be back as Deckard and all new cast members that include Ryan Gosling, Jared Leto, and Robin Wright. This sequel promises to be just as good as the first.
Release Date: October 6th
- The Dark Tower
Just like all Stephen King’s novels turned films, which has produced some of cinema’s greatest films. The Dark Tower is the latest of one to come out, seeing Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba in lead roles on their quest. This is a definite must watch for me.
Release Date: July 28th
- Beauty and the Beast
After a lot of talks and procrastination durin the making of the movie; at last, an official release date has been set. Disney has al;ways had a knack for making live-action remakes of animated classics and of course, Beauty and the Beast will be no different. Beauty and the Beast is an animated classic that the world has come to know and love by heart and I am especially excited to see Emma Watson take on her lead role as Belle. This is just easily one of the most anticipated movie for the year.
Release Date: March 17th
- The Fate of the Furious
This is the eight instalment in the Fast and Furious franchise. This sequel sees Vin Diesel’s character Dominic Toretto turn bad and pits himself against his former team and friends. Fast and Furious 7 was absolutely breathtaking and with most of the franchise’s characters reprising their roles, the Fayte of the Furious looks to be plenty fun, interesting and thrilling. A must watch.
Released Date: April 14th
So, everyone knows if you think of X-Men, you also think of the character Wolverine a.k.a. Logan and when you think of Logan/wolverine you think of Hugh Jackman. Logan sees us looking at the possible last go around of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine after his incredible performances and works at bringing this charcter to the big screen for almost 20 years now.
From the trailer, we see Logan bruised as he fights to survive with Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and a mysterious little girl he tries to save. From suggestions, this movie will take on an “Old Man Logan” back setting.
Release Date: March 3rd

We all know Tom Cruise is big on Action movies, big personalities, and amazing stunts..
