There are a lot of movies coming out this year that I’m excited about! It’s honestly pretty hard just to pick five! These are in no special order though. Just the order they popped into my head!
1. Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2 (May 5th)
I am beyond excited for this one! I really loved the first GOTG and it ranks high on my MCU list. And just look at Toddler Groot! How adorable is he? I’m excited about all the new characters we’ll be meeting as well, including Mantis! I really love her look and can’t wait to see what kind of role she plays in the film.
2. Wonder Woman (June 2)
I might be a Marvel fan at heart, but I’ll always hold a special place for Wonder Woman. I’m really excited about what we’ve seen and I’m trying to have faith that DC/WB won’t mess this one up. Every fan deserves great movies, no matter who they root for!
3. Spider-Man: Homecoming (July 7)
I’m not going to lie, when I heard Spider-Man was going to be rebooted yet again, I wasn’t that excited. I was even more annoyed that he was going to be part of the MCU. Then “CA: Civil War” happened and I couldn’t fucking wait for more Peter Parker! I’m interested to see what type of cameos we might see, or what little easter eggs might be tossed into the background.
4. Thor: Ragnarok (November 3)
I have a love/hate relationship with Thor movies. They aren’t horrible but they aren’t at the top of my list either. They just kinda exist and I like them enough. When I heard that Hulk was going to be part of the movie, and Hela was going to be the villain I was ecstatic! I mean, a female baddie?! It’s about time. I think Thor will really benefit from having Hulk around as well. I think Thor is a character that does better when he’s teamed up with the Avengers.
5. The Lego Batman Movie (February 10th)
There’s only one Batman movie I give a shit about and it’s this one! I loved Batman in “The Lego Movie” and I have a thing for Will Arnett. Plus the voice cast for this movie is pretty awesome with Rosario Dawson, Ralph Feinnes, and Zach Galifianakis.
Honorable Mention: Logan (March 3)
I am beyond excited to watch X-23 fuck shit UP in this movie. Plus it seems that Fox learned from “Deadpool” and just gave those involved the money they needed and stepped back. I really hope this is the Wolverine movie we’ve all been waiting for. I have a feeling Professor X will make me cry.
Of course I could probably list five more movies if I really wanted to. It was pretty hard to just list these six! To learn more about Fandom Friday and see the rest of the topics for the year, check out The Nerdy Girlie! What movies are you looking forward to?
