This has been a crazy year for movies. We’ve seen some box office hits like Interstellar, The Raid 2 and the Dawn of the Planet of Apes.
But I’m a sucker for superhero flicks. And I want to see more guys in capes and masks slugging it out and saving the day. What’s awesome is 2014 has a ton of cool superhero movies that either just came out. Or about to be released.
The following three movies are some that I can’t wait to watch. Two of the movies have been released and I’m still waiting for the perfect time to get a group of friends for a movie night. But the last one is coming up, and I can’t wait to watch it when it comes out.
Guardians of the Galaxy
Who doesn’t want to see this one? A superhero movie with a squirrel as a main character!
The expected date of release for Guardians of the Galaxy is August 1st, 2014. Starring Benicio Del Tro, Bradley Cooper, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, DjimonHounsou, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Zoe Saldana and Michael Rooker, it has an amazing crew with polished acting skills.
Directed by James Gunn, who is popular for his entertainment and action movies, this one is definitely going to be a great superhero movie that I am thrilled to watch. It is considered as the riskiest project that has been shot at the Marvel Studios to date. I mean, can a squirrel and a tree really be a mainstream hit?
X-Men: Days of Future Past
I’ve loved the X-Men since the 90′s cartoons. So it’s always awesome to see them on the big screen.
After the raving success of it’s first part, X-Men: First Class, Bryan Singer has directed the second part X-Men: Days of Future Past which is also a part of the trilogy of the original X-Men comic. Although it was released on May 23rd, 2014, I still have yet to sit down and watch it.
The cast consists of Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Ian McKellen, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Peter Dinklage and Michael Fassbender. The time travel story of this sequel arranges a follow up movie which is already in the making with an expected date of release in 2016.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Good ol’ Steve Rogers has always been one of my favorite DC characters
. He’s honest, sincere, hardworking, and the definition of a hero.
Released on the April 4th, 2014, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the third best superhero movie that I am anxiously waiting to watch this year. Directed by the marvellous duo, Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, it is a movie that does not only have amazing graphics and excellent storyline, but its music composition is also one of my favorites.
The lead actors in this movie include Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie, Robert Redford, CobieSmulders, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson and Sebastian Stan. The action sequences of this movie, visuals and characters are well knit together. It’s a cast filled with A-List actors, and I can’t wait to watch it.
