Away From The Keyboard: Superhero* Movie Calendar

Superhero Movie Calendar

This is a part of our “Away From the Keyboard” initiative. A place where we blog about non work related stuff that we’re passionate about.

We feel there are times you should wait for a movie to come out on DVD and streaming services and there are times where you should go to the flicks. The following movies are of the latter category, big budget visual extravaganzas that should definitely be seen on the big screen. So time to grab the popcorn, maybe a choc bomb, maybe a Coke, and sit back to watch the best of the best when it comes to special effects and action.

Marvel movies are at the forefront of cinema budget wise, and taking on phenomenal box office numbers. At Coup we get our nerd on a little when it comes to this sort of stuff, so we have mapped out a Superhero Movie Calendar so you’ll know when these films are coming out. This is probably more for our own personal use more than anything.

*Sorry, it’s not all superheros. Just important flicks.

 2017

Blade Runner 2049

 

Coup say: It’s not a superhero movie but woah, this has been a long time coming. If it is even 70% as good as the first one, it’s going to blow minds.

Release Date: October 6th, 2017
Studio: Alcon Entertainment
Director: Denis Villeneuve
Cast: Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Ana de Armas, Dave Bautista, Mackenzie Davis, and Jared Leto.

 

Thor: Ragnarok

 

Coup say: We’re the first to say that the first Thor instalment was pretty average, however,  the sequel, Thor: The Dark World was a dramatic improvement (though still not great). This leads us to the third film in the franchise and we are pretty pumped about this one. Here are the main reasons we’re getting excited. 1. It’s directed by New Zealand’s Taika Waititi, known for the amazing Hunt For The Wilderpeople and What They Do In They Shadows  (apparently just about the whole movie has been improvised). 2. This is the last Marvel film before Avengers: Infinity War, so hopefully it will shed some light on this upcoming narrative. 3. It’s in space. 4. It’s got Hulk in it.

I think we may have a big deal on our hands here.

Release Date: November 3, 2017
Studio: Marvel
Director:Taika Waititi
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie AlexanderCate Blanchett, Marc Ruffalo, Anthony Hopkins, Benedict Cumberbatch, Idris Elba, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Ray Stevenson, and Jeff Goldblum.

 

 

Justice League

 

Coup say: Batman vs Superman’s whole purpose was to set up this film. Batman vs Superman had its critics and it was pretty sub par. However, there was some flashes of light in the darkness so hopefully DC is learning what’s working and what’s not and it won’t be too long until they are up there with Marvel as far are watchability goes. It’s a Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman (Rumoured but hes’s not dead is he…), Flash and Aquaman team up so it gets us pretty frothy.

Release Date: November 17, 2017
Studio: Warner Bros.
Director: Zack Snyder
Cast: Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amber HeardGal Gadot, Amy Adams, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, J.K. Simmons, Willem Dafoe, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, Jeremy Irons, Jesse Eisenberg, Ciarán Hinds, and Kiersey Clemons.

Have a Geez

 

Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

 

 

Coup say: Oh dear god, there is not long to go until this is out and oh boy are we ready. Luke Skywalker. That’s all we have to say.

Release Date: December 15, 2017
Studio: Disney
Director: Rian Johnson
Cast: Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Carrie Fisher, Oscar Isaac, Laura Dern, Gwendoline Christie, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Billie Lourd, Warwick Davis and Benicio del Toro.

2018

Black Panther

 

Coup say: He was epic in Captain America: Civil War. Now we get to see him kick ass in his home world – Wakanda.

Release Date: February 16, 2018
Studio: Marvel
Director:Ryan Coogler
Cast: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Florence Kasumba, John Kani, and Winston Duke.

 

Avengers: Infinity War

Coup say: 10 years of planning and narrative and we are finally here. Every single Marvel film since Iron Man in 2008 has teased us about the Infinity Stones, now we have Infinity War AND Thanos. 10 years in the making. THIS IS BIG.

Release Date: May 4, 2018
Studio: Marvel
Director: Joe and Anthony Russo
Cast: Josh Brolin, every Marvel Cinematic Universe character ever.

 

Star Wars Anthology: Han Solo

Coup say: This is nothing. Han Solo movie? How can the little kid inside you not be steaming for this. Pretty much going to be a When Han Met Chewie flick, and do you know what? We are there, we are so there.

Release Date: May 25, 2018
Studio: Disney, Lucasfilm
Directors: Formerly Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, currently Ron Howard.
Cast: Alden Ehrenreich, Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo), Woody Harrelson, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

 

 

X-Men: The New Mutants

 

Coup say: We were told it was going to be a proper horror genre film but didn’t take it too seriously. This trailer looks pretty intense though. They’ve previously learnt from Deadpool and Logan that audiences are open to R rated films. Now they have thrown this curveball with a kind of X men: Shutter Island? or X men: Saw mashup.  A little confused… but intrigued, play on.

Release Date: April 13, 2018
Studio: FOX
Director: Josh Boone
Cast: Maisie Williams as Rahne Sinclaire/Wolfsbane, Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana Rasputin/Magik, Alice Braga as Dr. Cecilia Reyes, Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie/Cannonball, Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar, Henry Zaga as Sunspo/Roberto da Costa, and Happy Anderson as Reverend Craig.

 

Deadpool 2

Coup say: Shivers, Deadpool 2. The first was the trailblazer for mainstream R rated Superhero films and it blew us away. Chuck in fan favourite character  Cable and we’ve really got something to look forward to… get the popcorn ready.

Release Date: June 1, 2018
Studio: FOX
Director: David Leitch
Cast: Morena Baccarin, Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, Zazie Beetz, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni

 

Ant-Man & the Wasp

Coup say: The first was surprisingly good. Paul Rudd as a superhero. I’m in.

Release Date: July 6th, 2018
Studio: Marvel
Director: Peyton Reed
Cast: Paul Rudd, Evengelyne Lilly.

The Batman

Coup say: This is a big deal. Yum. We’re going to say it. Affleck is ok, not as good as Bale but he’s number 2. We reckon he pips Keaton.

Release Date: Formerly October 5th, 2018, now…2019??
Studio: Warner Bros.
Director: Matt Reeves
Cast: Ben Affleck, Jeremy Irons, Joe Manganiello, J.K. Simmons.

 

Venom

Coup say: Tom Hardy as Venom and Carnage has been confirmed. This could actually be the best one of the year.. putting it out there

Release Date: October 5th, 2018
Studio: Sony
Director: Ruben Fleischer
Cast: Tom Hardy

 

X-Men: Dark Phoenix

Coup say: If FOX gets it right then we may really have something to look forward to here. If The New Mutants is good, there is big hope and big anticipation for the new X-Men franchise.

Release Date: November 2nd, 2018
Studio: Fox
Director: Simon Kinberg
Cast: Jennifer LawrenceMichael FassbenderJames McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Sophie Turner, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Alexandra Shipp, and a sprawling cast of billions whose lives are summarily snuffed in the cosmic conflagration!

Studio: Warner Bros.
