I know 2015 isn't over yet, but after Fantastic 4 there are no more superhero movies until next year. Let's go down the list and see what we have.
Deadpool - February 12th 2016
After the terrible X-Men Origins Movie, we thought we were never going to see a real representation of Deadpool on the big screen. I was surprised when I heard about the new movie for a two reasons. 1). Ryan Reynolds was returning for the role. 2). It's set in the same universe as the X-Men films. After DOFP, I realized that because history was reset, they could start over with Deadpool. Deadpool will introduce a whole new cast of mutants including Ajax, Copycat, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and more.
Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice - March 25th 2016
Easily one of the most anticipated (and hated on) superhero films next year. This movie is the real kickoff to the DC Cinematic Universe. I honestly don't understand why people are giving this movie so much negativity. First it's Ben Affleck and the cast, then it was the subtitle of the movie, then it was the Batmobile, then it was the trailer. People keep finding reasons to shut this movie down. I think it will be great, and I am really pumped after seeing the trailer from Comic-Con. BvS: DoJ will bring back characters from Man of Steel as well as introducing a new Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, Lex Luthor, and more DC Characters.
Captain America: Civil War - May 6th 2016
The next installment in the MCU and maybe its most important. Kind of sort of based on Marvel's Civil War storyline, most of Marvel's heroes from the movies will return (Except Hulk and Thor) to battle each other after the government tries to bring heroes under registration. Beautiful. I can't wait for this movie because of the massive amount of characters coming in. Cap 3 brings in old faces like Captain America, Ironman, Winter Soldier, and Black Widow while also bringing in new faces like Black Panther, Spider-Man, Baron Zemo, and Martin Freeman's Mystery Character.
X-Men Apocalypse - May 27th 2016
The next X-Men film kind of feels like a restart, which isn't a bad thing. Set in the James McAvoy X-Men timeline, one of the X-Men's most iconic villains will come to the big screen, Apocalypse. I've always found him interesting mostly mostly because of his horsemen and his immense power. Bringing him in now is a good idea, and the movie itself looks very promising. Bringing back Professor X, Magneto, Mystique, and Beast from the First Class storyline, as well as recasting fan favorites like Cyclops, Storm, Jean Grey, and Nightcrawler.
Ninja Turtles: Half Shell - June 3rd 2016
I can't believe they're making a sequel honestly. Witness the return of the four "turtles" who can't make a single funny joke. Or be Ninja Turtles. Poor Stephen Amell. New characters from Ninja Turtles Universe include Casey Jones, Bebop, Rocksteady, and a new Shredder.
Suicide Squad - August 5th 2016
DC is looking very good next year. The trailer for Suicide Squad got me really excited. Several characters from the DC Villain team are featured here and the casting is spot on. However, the main attraction for me is Joker. His scene at the end of the trailer gave me chills down my arm. The tattoos honestly don't bother me anymore, and Leto looks like he'll give us a great performance. Suicide Squad introduces DC Villains like Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, and Joker.
Gambit - October 7th 2016
Another character poorly represented in X-Men Origins was Gambit. He deserved so much more to do in that movie, but he got stuck with about 5 minutes total of screen time. The reboot to the character starring Channing Tatum should be good, bu not much is known about the movie right now.
Dr. Strange - November 4th 2016
A new character joins the Marvel Universe, and this time it's Dr. Strange. We ddon't have many magic based characters in the MCU, and Dr. Strange is the head of them kind of. This movie will probably explore the history of Infinity Stones further and probably introduce a new one. Dr. Strange, Baron Mordo, The Ancient One, and more will be introduced.
