We are now into the new superhero movies of tomorrow. There will be at least four to choose from, and I have my fingers crossed for at least five. Let’s start with Spiderman. This is a great one for two reasons. First off the trailers for this movie have done a good job of setting up the Spidey myth and giving us a look at what Spiderman will be capable of.
See What Tom Cruise Is Really Like As An Actor
Secondly we get to see what Tom Cruise is really like as an actor. He has been compared to one of the leading men in Hollywood, but never quite has the kind of credentials that accompany those names. Now he will have to prove himself. Hopefully, he does not disappoint. These are some of the first steps of new superhero movies.
Then we move on to another untitled superhero movie called X-Men: The Origins. This is the movie that introduced the world to Professor X, which is the founder of the X-Men. It is supposed to be the start of a brand new franchise. While no specific details have been given about the plot or who will play the lead role, this could easily be the start of a super hero movie revolution. The cast includes Patrick Stewart as Professor X, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and James McAvoy as Professor X’s son, Magneto.
Iron Man 3 And The Incredible Hulk
The next new superhero movies to come from the comics will be Iron Man 3 and The Incredible Hulk. These two movies star Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson. They are the ideal pairing for the character of Iron Man because they are both iconic symbols of power. For those unfamiliar with these actors, they are compared to the comic book heroes of the past, namely Batman and Superman.
And now we have another untitled movie starring Russell Crowe as one of Hollywood’s top actors. This movie is called Spider-Man and the New York City Connection and is said to be in the planning stages right now. No specific details have been released, but speculation has been that it will be a new installment of the Spider-Man franchise that begins with Amazing Spider-Man 3.
The Dark Knight Rises
There is also a rumor that there is going to be a new animated superhero movie featuring the DC Universe characters. This movie is tentatively titled The Dark Knight Rises. We should keep our fingers crossed that it will be a hit and follow the success of the Man of Steel. There is also a new superhero series beginning in the TV show Smallville. It is called The Shield and centers on a family in modern day Smallville, Kansas.
There have also been some rumors that there will be some big announcements coming out about the reboot of one of the old Batman stories. There is a new movie coming out about the early years of Batman’s career. So far, they have yet to announce whether it will be an origin story or if it will be based on any of the older Batman comics. If you are very familiar with Batman, this could be an interesting watch.
We know that there are more than a few upcoming comic book movies that we will see. The success of the recent X-Men series has led to a new comic book series written by Greg Berlanti and starring Tom Hardy and directed by none other than Marc Webb. There is also a new animated film titled Aquaman coming out in June of 2021 starring Russell Crowe. It will be interesting to see which comic book character will receive his own solo film.
