Out of all the movies set to come out for the coming years with Marvel, I'm pretty much the most excited when it comes to Bryan Singer's [X-Men: Apocalypse](movie:1194267) and the Russo Brothers'


So let's look at the highlights of these movies.

Captain America: Civil War

It's Iron Man and Captain America vs. Baron Helmut Zemo, along with our two favorite somewhat non-powered superheroes, the Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Spider-Man (unknown actor). Then again, who says you need powers to take down an evil HYDRA dictator like Zemo? And will the Superhuman Registration Act be mentioned in this coming movie?

I certainly hope so. First of all, it's part of the story arc! Why would you leave out an important document like that out of a movie that's named in sake of the mentioned story arc? But will Spider-Man don the Iron Spider suit? Hope so, too.

High Expectation Rate: 8.5/10

I can see a lot happening in this movie, but we certainly can't expect every little detail of the book to be mentioned. Or can we?

X-Men Apocalypse

More time travelling will be involved in Bryan Singer's X-Men Apocalypse. And, as we've heard in recent news (thanks again, CinemaBlend), our favorite Horsemen is headed our way with wings of metal and skin of blue (maybe). And we'll be expecting to see Jubilation Lee, aka 90's X-Men animated superstar, Jubilee, played by debut actress Lara Condor.

We're also expecting to see Oscar Isaac bring to life one the X-Men's most terrifying enemies, En Sabah Nur, aka Apocalypse. Here's a head shot pic from when some of us thought Dwayne Johnson would have made his Marvel debut:

Not too bad, if I do say so myself. And who knows, maybe they'll use that costume (or something similar, at least) to make Oscar Issac look the part. I know he'll do great as Apocalypse.

High Expectation Rate: 9/10

We've had a lot more updates for this movie, and I have to say, those updates didn't disappoint. We've pretty much got all the cast that we need. The only thing left to see is, of course, the costumes. Then I'm satisfied for another year and a half.

Captain America: Civil War is set to hit theaters May 6, 2016 and X-Men: Apocalypse will hit theaters May 27, 2016.

Now it's time for you to decide. And don't forget to comment below!
