Avengers: Infinity War
The third entry in the Avenger’s franchise ups the ante. This go around the Avengers must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos who has slowly but surely gathering all the infinity stones. A bunch of new hero’s crossover further expanding the Marvel universe – with Spider-Man, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Dr. Strange joining the cast of regulars. Should make up for one bang ’em up good old summertime popcorn fun.
Our Take: Great way to kick off the summer movie season. Could DeadPool and the X-Men join in next?
Solo: A Star Wars Story
Infamous intergalactic smuggler Han Solo gets his origin story. This film follows a young Han Solo and chronicles how he became smuggler with swag who will help the rebels overcome the evil empire. The movie will explore adventures before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, including his friendship with Chewbacca, and their early encounters with that other card-playing rogue from a galaxy far, far away, Lando Calrissian.
Our Take: We have high hopes for this, with “hope” being the operative word. With its first co-directors canned mid-way trouble may on the horizon, however, with Ron Howard taking the helm perhaps we have the audacity to hope.
Talk about a superhero heavy month, Deadpool 2 will round out May 2018. You knew the Merc with a Mouth would be back after the massive success of his initial foray. Ryan Reynolds returns as Wade Wilson. Not much is known about the story for the sequel, other than Nathan Summers aka Cable will be appearing in the form of Josh Brolin and Wilson’s love interest Vanessa also returns. If the trailer and sneak peaks are any indication we are set to get just as many laughs as the first go around.
Our Take: They would have to work pretty hard to mess this one up. With Ryan Reynolds shepparding this film and character pretty sure another monster hit will drop.
