So, 2015 is almost coming, with great movies coming out (The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, The Fantastic Four, Ant-Man, etc). But when you think about it, 2016 is a very special year for comic book movies, it's filled with "firsts". The first time we see Batman and Superman together on the big screen! The first time we'll see a Marvel movie with the antagonists being the protagonist. The first time we'll see a stand-alone movie starring Deadpool. A lot of expected movie are coming 2016 that makes me feel somehow it WILL be better than 2015. Let's review some of those films.

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

Date: March 25, 2016

The Hype: This moment will be glorious, we know we have a good director, good casting, apparently a good plot. Just think about it, this movie will mark history since is the first time we will see The Caped Crusader and The Man Of Steel together in a movie. Although the idea of adding other heroes such as Wonder Woman, Cyborg and/or Aquaman makes me feel like it is not a B vs. S but still we'll get something. Also this is the first movie that truly counts down the coming of that Justice League we have waited for, for more than a decade.

The Sinister Six

Date: November 11, 2016

The Hype: Even though The Amazing Spider-Man 2 disappointed many people (although it is the best superhero movie I've seen even with it's flaws), Sony is making many plans and trying to transform this saga into something bigger with even taking the liberty of placing a Sinister Six movie before the third Spidey movie. That must tell us that they are really confident about it. Not only that, but it's also the first time ever that the "Bad Guys" are going to be the main protagonists of a Marvel movie. Don't deny it, even if you didn't like (or even HATED) TASM2, you do want to see what this movie is about, why? 'Cause it's the freakin Sinister Six, that's why!!!


Date: February 12, 2016

The Hype: Although we saw Deadpool in the 2009 disaster, we never got to see the Deadpool we need and deserve. This is the only chance Fox will have in making a right Deadpool movie. Make sure he has the red and black costume, make sure he's a jerk and make sure it's a R-Rated movie, if not things will totally be [email protected] UP! The test footage was fantastic, I can only imagine how much better the movie will be. Ohh, and one more thing... don't make him break the 4th wall PLEASE.

Doctor Strange

Date: July 8, 2016

Before this movie came out we would've at least expected a Black Panther movie to come out, or a Daredevil reboot to start being in production, but no, Doctor Strange it is. For the first time we will get to see the combination of Harry Potter & Marvel on the big screen. The thought of seeing a Doctor Strange movie gives me chills. A big movie to look forward to. Although right now, there seems to be some problems with Joaquin Phoenix turning down the role of the "Doctor", I'm pretty sure things will get better and we'll see a great spectacle in July 2016.

X-Men: Apocalypse

Date: May 27, 2016

The Hype: Although it is not the last movie we'll see int the current saga (2000-?) of the X-Men movies, it will be the one that concludes the trilogy that started with X-Men: First Class. Just imagine the devastation of mutants, the massacre that Apocalypse will create. I am sure that this movie will be the best one yet, every single character that we can think of can have a chance of being here. I have a feeling this is going to be on of those movies that will be almost 3 hours long, since the development of story needs to be very detailed. Right now the series of X-Men are doing really good and this movie will be fantastic as long as it has Bryan Singer, Mister Sinister, and something that looks like the following picture.

Captain America 3 / Captain America: The Fallen Son?

Date: May 6, 2016

The (Little) Hype: I am one of those people who hated The Winter Soldier but I guess I have to include this one... nuff' said! Let's just hope this is an actual Captain America movie, not a S.H.I.E.L.D. movie. M.O.D.O.K. and the death of Cap are rumored to appear, let's hope both of these are true (LOL).

This was a list of the most anticipated Comic Book movies coming 2016 just to demonstrate 2016 will beat 2015. I didn't include TMNT2 because I don't think it's anticipated at all, II didn't include X-Force because nothing has been announced yet. Thanks for reading this article, make sure to leave your ideas in the comment section, and I'm off for now.
