It’s no secret that the recent attempt at a Fantastic Four reboot failed critically and financially. It’s led to many fans (including myself) wanting another new reboot so we can forget that attempt of a reboot, which would’ve been part of Fox’s Marvel cinematic universe. For this fan-cast, it’s pretty open to where ever F4 ends up – still with Fox or joining the Disney/MCU.
Here’s the timeline for comic book films coming out next year! We have 3 from Marvel/Disney, 2 from WB/DC, 1 from Fox/Marvel, and 1 from Fox/Icon. There are probably more adaptations out there I’m missing but these are the ones I’ll likely end up seeing. Now the question here is which of these 7 am I looking forward to most? Which will see critical success and which will see box office success? Here’s what I think (and let me know what you think)!
It was reported by Variety early June that Brie Larson was in talks to play Carol Danvers, the first female superhero from Marvel to get a solo film. It’s stated that Marvel plans to get the actress cast early in case of a possibility of showing up in a film before her solo in 2019. The only announcements for the film so far had been the script writers, Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman (Inside Out).
One other big panel appeared in Hall H and that was Marvel Studios’ movies. Obviously, Doctor Strange, GotG Vol 2, and Spider-Man Homecoming showed up and surprisingly Black Panther and even Captain Marvel (although short) made an appearance.
Bottom line: A better trilogy than Iron Man’s and better film than Age of Ultron, but falls short to The Winter Soldier.
I can’t believe it took me over a month to do this. I’ve been really busy – apologies!
The only expectation I really had for Deadpool was the humor. I was pleasantly surprised that their was still plenty left the trailers hadn’t spoiled yet! If there was something to nitpick, it was the structure of the film. My head felt like it was almost spinning with the amount of times the story would switch from past to current time. There could have been a bit less, and I think it’d help the story flow better, but that’s really my only con with the film. (Other than this couple who decided to take their 3 kids, who had to be 6 and younger, to this film. WTF!) There were so many memorable lines and moments, although I didn’t quite get Francis’ obsession with “What’s my name?” Spoiler if you somehow haven’t seen the film yet, but oddly my two favorite scenes of the film was the baby hand part (I don’t know why I found this so funny) and when Colossus and Negasonic first visit Deadpool in the film (breaking all his bones, cutting his hand off…yeah that part). It was a hilarious interaction and I’m kind of hoping for more of it in the future, but we’ll see…I just remembered one other thing that was a con – the CG for Colossus. I understand the film didn’t have the biggest budget ever, but the CG wasn’t great for him. But the design, size, voice of the character was much better than what the X-Men films had brought! Speaking of design, Negasonic’s X-Men costume! We better be seeing those yellow costumes in the X-Men franchise! She showed it can work!
Here’s a timeline of comic book films coming in 2016! Two from Marvel/Disney, three from Marvel/Fox, and two from DC! Each are shaping up for the biggest year (yet) for comic book films! There is no doubt they will be dominating the box office in 2016. But who will be the best? Let’s discuss that as well as which I’m looking forward to most along with most looking forward to (new) characters!
It’s that time of year again! This is my second year in the Looking Forward series and what it consists of is my top anticipated films of the new year. 2016 has a lot of interesting movies coming out, much more than 2015 had. So prepaped to go broke! I would like to remind everyone that this is just my opinion and I would LOVE to hear others top 20 (or top 10) of 2016!
