With Fantastic 4 hitting theatres,we now have to wait a gruelling 7 months until another comic book movie hit theatres.The future of super hero films is both promising and enormous,so it’s hard to believe only 4 comic movies were released in 2015
But now that they’re all here , let’s look back at,and rank,this year’s comic book movies
Marvel’s latest origin story saw Paul Rudd charming us all into rooting for insects. AntMan, which may be considered a “gamble” for Marvel Studios given its silly title and premise, faced major adversities when its original director walked from the project just before production. But that didn’t matter. Despite Edgar Wright’s departure and Peyton Reed’s last minute stepon, the final product was a unique, fun, and thrilling heist movie. Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang stole our hearts, while Michael Peña stole the screen. Plus, it didn’t hurt to have a couple of Avengers cameos, a SpiderMan reference, and proper homage to Hank Pym as the first AntMan
2. Avengers:Age Of Ultron
The Avengers’ assembly wasn’t quite as magical as the first tone in 2012, but that can’t be held
against a project that was excellent in its own right.
The science bros of Stark and Banner almost triggered a robotic apocalypse in Avengers: Age of
Ultron, Joss Whedon’s last Marvel film (at least for a while). We were introduced to new
characters, witnessed some of Marvel’s best action sequences to date, and saw the groundwork
for Marvel’s phase 3 set in a very entertaining fashion
3. Kingsman:The Secret Service
Kingsman: The Secret Service shocked audiences by making good use of its RRating.
Matthew Vaughn, who previously directed Mark Millar’s other comic seriesturnedmovies, KickAss
and Wanted, went guns blazing in Kingsman with unique action, wellwritten comedy, and an
extremely talented cast. Not only did it feature a ridiculous yet somehow compelling story, but
Kingsman packed a whole lot of unforgettable sequences which other movies would have shied
4. Fantastic Four
If we were ranking the most questionable comic book movies of 2015, Fantastic Four would be at top of the list.although,ant-man was a pretty gamble too(just one that actually worked).Fantastic Four tried to radically differentiate from Marvel’s first family from their other big screen appearance, but it didn’t quite pay off the way director Joss Trank had imagined. the extended origin story only featured a small bit of action in its 100 min run time and was universally panned by critics. Don’t be surprised if Fantastic Four 2 quietly slips off of 2017’s movie release schedule.
The future is extremely bright. With 30 confirmed super hero films coming between now and 2020,
it’s a great time to be a geek.
It will be a long seven months until Deadpool gives us a our comic book movie fix, but let’s run down what’s coming in 2016:
Deadpool. Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Captain America: Civil War. Suicide Squad. XMen: Apocalypse. Gambit. Dr. Strange.
Wait. Let’s break that down a little bit more and rattle off a list of characters the previous list means we will see on screen in 2016: Deadpool. Colossus. Negasonic Teenage Warhead. Weasel. Batman. Robin? Superman. Wonder Woman. Aquaman. Lex Luthor. Captain America. Iron Man. Scarlet Witch. AntMan. SpiderMan. Black Panther. Hawkeye. Black Widow. The Vision. The Falcon. Bucky Barnes. Crossbones. War Machine. Hulk? Harley Quinn. The Joker. Deadshot. Enchantress. Katana. Amanda Waller. Killer Croc. El Diablo. Captain Boomerang. Storm. Apocalypse. Magneto. Charles Xavier. Psylocke. Mystique. Quicksilver. Beast. Jean Grey. Cyclops. Nightcrawler. Havok. Gambit. Stephen Strange.
I’m out of breath. Don’t even get me started on 2017.
