RESULTS: Which Upcoming Comic Book Movies Are You Most Looking Forward To?
When we posted our CBM "Calendar Update" last week (find it HERE if you missed it) we also asked you which of the films coming out this year, next year, the year after that and those currently in-development. Find out the results in full after the jump.
Peter Jackson returns to Middle-Earth, this time adapting J.R.R. Tolkein’s The Hobbit. Originally set to be split into just two films, it was revealed earlier this month that there will now be THREE instalments. Seems like an awful lot for a reasonably short book, but the director reportedly had enough footage in order to stretch it out a little further and it’s thought that he may even delve into some of Tolkein’s other books in order to bridge the gap between these films and Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.
He’s baaaack! After the underwhelming mess that was Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns, it looks as if Zack Snyder will be the man who finally does the iconic DC character justice. With the promise of plenty of action, an incredible cast and a storyline which will be less of a throwback to the classic Superman movies and more like what fans love from the comics, it wouldn’t be at all surprising to see this reboot end up becoming THE best comic book movie of 2013. The SDCCon footage and trailer has everyone VERY excited...
It’s not exactly a surprise that the crowd at the San Diego Comic-Con erupted in cheers when the title of the Captain America: The First Avenger sequel was announced at the event last month. That’s right, Sebastian Stan will return as The Winter Soldier! The choice of a directing duo in the form of the Russo Brothers (You Me And Dupree, Community) is understandably worrying many, although there are still plenty of other reasons to be excited, including the recent news that Anthony Mackie (The Adjustment Bureau) has signed up to play The Falcon.
After the recent news that The Gangster Squad scribe has penned a script which will put all of DC’s iconic superheroes in one film, it was also recently revealed that Warner Bros. have approached Ben Affleck with an offer to direct, although recent reports indicate that The Wachowskis (The Matrix) may be in talks. A 2015 release is rumoured, but not confirmed.
