Everyone should know that Marvel is already king of the mountain when it comes to adapting their comics into films. However, nothing they’ve previously done compares to what’s going to happen within the next two years. Obviously we’re talking about the ambitious Avengers movie. Besides the ensemble juggernaut that is The Avengers, Marvel has several other projects on the horizon. Since Marvel has been releasing several trailers and pics recently, we decided to make your life easier and include them all in one post so you can get all caught up on the upcoming Marvel movie releases.
The trailer was released during the Super Bowl and it looks rather awesome. The God of Thunder starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins will strike big screens on May 6, 2011.
X-Men: First Class
Another trailer that was recently released. I wasn’t too keen on this project when I first heard about it but the trailer has since changed my mind. The young Charles Xavier and his first batch of students will arrive on June 3, 2011.
Captain America: The First Avenger
Personally, this is the Marvel adaptation that I’ve been patiently waiting for. Like Thor, the trailer was unveiled during the Super Bowl and already looks much better than that 1990 “film”. Cap hits theaters on July 22, 2011 and stars Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving and Tommy Lee Jones.
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance
There weren’t many of us that enjoyed 2007′s Ghost Rider. Somehow it fared well enough to earn a sequel, which is slated for a February 17, 2012 release. Nicholas Cage will reprise his role as Johnny Blaze, unfortunately, but the plot looks promising. If it’s better than the original I think we’ll forgive and forget about that. You can view a slew of set photos right here.
Not much to say about The Avengers except that we already have our calenders marked for May 4, 2012.
The Amazing Spider-Man
We just learned the title for the Spidey reboot is The Amazing Spider-Man, if you didn’t notice already, and there’s also an official image of the costume. I thought it was a bit too soon for a reboot, but studio executives have to eat too. I’m still not completely sold on this film but it seriously can’t be worse than Spider-Man 3, can it? Our favorite friendly neighborhood Spider-Man swings into theaters on July 3, 2012 with Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Rhys Ifans and Denis Leary.
We don’t know too much about the sequel to 2009′s X-Men Origins: Wolverine. We do know that Hugh Jackman will yet again reprise the role of Logan and that it will focus on his exploits in Japan. We also recently learned that director Darren Aronofsky is on board. If that name doesn’t sound familiar let’s help you out a bit. He’s the man behind Black Swan, The Wrestler and Requiem for a Dream. So far, so good. The Wolverine should be released sometime in 2012.
