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.

Batman v Superman And Suicide Squad Sizzlereel Shown At CineEurope

There hasn’t much of footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, but maybe that will change? According to The Hollywood Reporter – Warner Bros have shown a sizzle-reel as a closing act for the presentation at CineEurope in Barcelona:

The presentation closed with a sizzle reel of the studio’s upcoming projects with the DC universe, including Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

This is really interesting because there hasn’t been released any footage from Suicide Squad other than leaked pictures from the set and the official group photo. Maybe we will see some leaked footage on YouTube sooner than later?

Both Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will hit theaters August 5, 2016 and March 25, 2016 respectively.

Viola Davis Tells Us That Amanda Waller Can Scare Superman Out Of His Tights!

Viola-Davis-as-Amanda-Waller-in-Suicide-Squad

It’s commonly known in the comicbook-world that Amanda Waller has a big presence in the Suicide Squad-comics and that she in many interpretations is a very dominant and imposing character. Viola Davis has now through an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! shed some light on what to expect from her version of Amanda Waller in Suicide Squad:

Viola Davis gave Jimmy Kimmel a crash course in comic book history when she stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! Tuesday night. The How to Get Away With Murder star is currently in Toronto filming her role in the upcoming DC Comics-derived blockbuster, Suicide Squad, in which she plays Amanda Waller, the leader of a team of mercenaries made up of the deadliest villains the DC-verse has to offer… including Batman’s nemesis, the Joker (played by Jared Leto). A self-confessed “Marvel comics guy,” Kimmel needed more intel on Suicide Squad and Waller in particular, so Davis gave him the scoop: “[Amanda] is a badass,” she said, adding “Superman would quake in his tights.”

Amanda Waller is known in the comics for being one of few people that scares The Dark Knight himself so this sounds very promising. Will we see a confrontation between Batman and Waller in the movie?

Suicide Squad will hit theatres August 5, 2016.

If these news are correct i will be really delighted. I liked his role in the animated movie Assault on Arkham. Then again as my other story about Batman v Superman: This is not confirmed by Warner Bros or any from the production.

Suicide Squad will have theatrical premiere the 4th of August 2016 and stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as The Joker, Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.
