Top 5: My Most Anticipated Comicbook-Movies Of 2016

2015 has been a fantastic year for comicbook-movies but it seems like 2016 will be even more epic in terms of the sheer amount of big budget movies based on comic book properties. So here is my top 5 list of my most anticipated comic book movies of 2016!

 

5. Deadpool

This is a dark horse for me because it can go either way (we saw how it turned out last time), but neither the less. We are finally getting a proper R-Rated Deadpool movie with Ryan Reynolds (Who by the way is born to play this role) playing the merc with the mouth. And with it possibly being part of the X-Men Universe makes it even more anticipated.

4. X-Men: Apocalypse

The X-Men franchise have found it’s grove again after the missteps of X-Men 3: Last Stand and the atrocious X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Both X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past have been fantastic movies in their own rights. But the flaws with those movies is that the X-Men haven’t fought against cosmic and larger than life beings. Apocalypse will change that and we will see him for the first time on the big screen.

3. Captain America: Civil War

This has been on many people’s most anticipated comic book movies of 2016, but the reason why it’s not my top 1 is because there are two other movies that are more anticipated for me. Having said that, this is basically an Avengers movie (with The Hulk and Thor excluded in the rooster) and the core conflict will be between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark were superheroes must stand accountable of what happened in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Steve Rogers doesn’t agree with the government and it sparks a war within the Avengers. Also add the inclusion of Spider-Man (played by Tom Holland) and we will get an action packed superhero-flick!

2. Suicide Squad

This is a make it or break it movie for DC and Warner Bros, this is their first movie in the DCEU after the events of Batman v Superman and with a group of characters that are for the most part unknown for the general audience (with the exception of Batman and The Joker). But my anticipation level for it is sky-high because we are going to see our first big screen representations of Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, Katana, Deadshot and many more and with the inclusion of The Joker played by the extremely talented Jared Leto gives this movie big expectations.

1. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

The title of this movie says it all, it is not only about the conflict between Superman and Batman, it is also a semi-prequel to the Justice League movie that will be released in 2017. This is a movie that all comic book fans have been looking forward to for decades. The trinity may have existed for over 75 years but they have never shared the big screen in the same movie. It’s a behemoth of a motion picture and it has a lot of thing going for it: Ben Affleck looks amazing as The Dark Knight, Gal Gadot as the Amazonian Warrior and Henry Cavill reprising his role as the last son of Krypton, Jason Momoa as Aquaman: The King of Atlantis , a fantastic screenwriter in Chris Terrio and a visual director in Zack Snyder.

This is not only my most anticipated comic book movie of 2016: 

It is my most anticipated movie  of all time.

REPORTS: The Hulk appearing in Captain America: Civil War?

There is a report floating around the web that Mark Ruffalo will appear in next years blockbuster Captain America: Civil War. The thing here is that neither Kevin Feige or Marvel Studios have said this but Iron Man himself Robert Downey Jr. This according to Mark Ruffalo during hes press tour for his new film “Infinitely Polar Bear”:

“At this point, I’m told that I’m in it by Robert, which I’ll take as biblical, but I just haven’t heard or seen from production yet,” Ruffalo told HitFix. “If Robert Downey, Jr. says I’m in ‘Captain America,’ I’m in ‘Captain America’ dammit. And I will wait for the day that my call sheet shows up at my doorstep or my script.”

It feels like this movie is shaping up to be quite the ensemble movie. The only thing missing for this to be a full-fledged Avengers-movie is Thor. Still great news if this is true!

Captain America: Civil War opens in theatres May 6, 2016.
