As they say, time is running out for the upcoming superhero movies. Right after the success of Spiderman in the theaters, the other superheroes are about to get their release date postponed or even canceled. That means that you will have to be on the lookout for these movies. What do you need to know? Let us help you out!
Iron Man: Most Popular Superhero
One of the most popular superheroes today is Iron Man. The success of this movie has made Marvel Studios expands their lineup by adding more superhero films to come. But where is the next film coming from? Well, that question may be getting a little vague, but we’ll try to give you an idea of what some of the possibilities are. Some possible casts for the next superhero movie cast include: Hawkeye, Black Widow, Ant Man and the Wasp, The Vision, and Therox. If you happen to know which of these characters you like, then it won’t be hard to cast the others.
The first of the upcoming superhero movies to come out is starring up Iron Man and The Wasp. The latter was originally cast as a female character, but after she was made a part of the Marvel Universe, she was made male. For whatever reason, the actor playing her in this movie won’t be confirmed as the star of the next film. Meanwhile, according to Variety, filming for The Wasp has already begun in London. With this cast, The Wasp should start shooting around March or April of next year.
Another one of the upcoming superhero movies to come out in the next few years is the X-Men. This team of superpowered warriors was one of the very first to get introduced into the world of comic books. There have been many X-Men characters that have come before, and now there will be even more created during the next few decades. When it comes to casting, the role of Patrick Stewart as Cyclops, Ice Rogue, and Professor X may be up for grabs. Other names of potential actors include Michael Fassbender as Stormy, James Marsden as Cyclops, and Andrew Garfield as Jean Grey.
While we are on the topic of possible actors, one name that definitely does not ring a bell is that of Will Smith. Smith’s last appearance as a superhero was in the critically acclaimed X-Men: Days of Future Past, and while he did a pretty good job, he didn’t do anything that compared to what he can do with a role in the future of DC films. Hopefully, there is more time between now and then for Will Smith to appear in some DC films or at least be considered for them.
Other possible superheroes that will be appearing in upcoming superhero movies include Aquaman, The Flash, and Supergirl. With Aquaman, fans could start speculating about when exactly he will show up in Aquaman 3, and whether or not he will be half human, half mermaid. For the sake of clarification, Aquaman is an original aquatic creature, so no one can confirm whether or not he will have a half human/half fish form, but it is certainly a possibility. Also, with The Flash, fans will want to know if he’ll be getting his own spinoff series, or if he will simply continue to appear in the Smallville TV show.
One of the biggest rumors surrounding the future of this franchise, is whether or not Tom Hardy will be cast as the famous Odd job character. In the short term, he is playing a role that is largely unknown, but in the long run he will be known as one of the top villains in the comics, and he will definitely be appearing in the upcoming Spiderman sequel. As far as who will be playing the other Marvel superheros, that remains to be seen. As it stands, Andrew Garfield will be playing Spiderman, while Tobey Maguire will be playing Spiderman 2, and Anthony Hopkins will be playing the young Peter Parker.
