2017 will be over soon, so let’s take a look at the Marvel Movies in 2018 to get excited for.

Films like Logan and Spiderman: Homecoming have made 2017 a great year for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I particularly loved the grittiness of Logan and the humour and diversity that we saw in the latest Spiderman: Homecoming. Let’s hope the list of Marvel Movies 2018 keeps on delivering.

1) The list of Marvel Movies 2018 includes Deadpool 2 and we’re pumped…

The first Deadpool movie was a huge success – and for good reason. I think Marvel successfully translated the dark humour from the comics into the film. It’s the first time I’ve seen this done so well and it’s no easy task.

The film was just like what I had read in the comics, and I think any Deadpool fan would be satisfied. And as much I dislike Ryan Reynolds (please don’t hate me), he did a pretty great job as Deadpool (some even say he deserved an Oscar).

Perhaps the most exciting thing about Deadpool 2 is the introduction of Cable. Nathan Summers aka Cable is a badass soldier from the future, the love child of Cyclops and Madelyne Pryor. His powers include telepathy, telekinesis, energy blast projection, time travel and much more…

It’s gonna be super interesting to see how Deadpool 2 introduces Cable.

Without giving too much away, the teaser trailer for the film looks sick. It’s hilarious and twisted at the same time. Everything from Deadpool dressed in an 80s style wig, to overt drug references and creative profanity use, to epic action sequences.

Yep, this is definitely going to be one of the best Marvel Movies in 2018. Click here to check it out.

2) Black Panther is one of the upcoming Marvel movies that I’m most excited for…

T’Challa aka Black Panther is, in my opinion, one of the coolest Marvel heroes in the universe. Captain American: Civil War did a really great job of introducing Black Panther to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and I’m really excited that he’s getting his own film.

Honestly, the second trailer for this film made me poop my pants with excitement. Possibly one of the coolest trailers I’ve seen for a Marvel movie.

Visually, the film looks EPIC! The landscape of Wakanda just pops out from the screen. The trees, waterfalls, skyscrapers – everything looks beautiful.

The trailer for Black Panther also oozes swag and the action sequences look equally epic. Everything about this film looks like it could be one for the record books. Definitely the most exciting Marvel Movie in 2018 (in my opinion).

There’s so much that can be done with this film that makes it one of the most exciting upcoming Marvel films to watch. There’s so much historical and cultural depth to Black Panther. I mean, he’s the freakin’ king of Wakanda, the most technologically advanced society in the world.

The IMDB description days is it all really…

“T’Challa, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king.”

This film has so much potential for cool gadgets, vengeful angst, epic battles and exploration of cultural diversity.

3) Avengers: Infinity War might be one of the biggest Marvel Movies in 2018…

This film is set four years after the events of Guardians of the Galaxy vol.2.

If you remember Captain America: Civil War than you would know that the Avengers had a bit of drama going on that never quite got resolved by the end of the film. This is where Avengers: Infinity War takes off.

So basically the Avengers team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy to fight Thanos. He is trying to collect the Infinity Stones to control reality, so the stakes are pretty high. Click here to learn more about the Infinity Stones.

This is super exciting because it gives a chance for the drama that had been established earlier on to play out in even higher circumstances. It’s gonna be interesting to see how they resolve their differences for the good of the world!

The trailer looks equally as epic as what I just described. Visually, this film picks up from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 in its awesomeness. The intense colours of outer space look great and the trailer really communicates the stakes of the situation.

All your favourite super heroes are present including Spider Man so this looks like it will be a mix of the different story lines and films that have come before it.

Oh boy, this Marvel Movie in 2018 could either be the biggest success or biggest flop of the year. It all depends on how they deal with the complexities of plot and interactions of characters.

4) Will X-Men: Dark Phoenix be a little forgettable?

As much as I love the X-Men Franchise, I’m not sure what X-Men: Dark Phoenix really brings to the franchise.

Yes, I’m aware that the Dark Phoenix is a crucial aspect of the X-Men storyline that has yet to be explored. But aside from Logan, I’ve been slightly disappointed with the X-Men films that I’ve seen so far. And yes, I’ve seen them all multiple times.

Having said that, I’ll always be a die hard X-Men fan so I’m definitely still excited for this one.

The Dark Phoenix is an epic character to explore and it could be big for the franchise, but I doubt it will be groundbreaking.

Hopefully I’m wrong, because I want this film to be everything that it should be. Like the Dark Phoenix character itself, the film should be dangerous, unpredictable and epic. But, it may not be…

And no official trailers have been released yet to prove me wrong.

5) While there is no Venom movie trailer and the plot is unknown, this one could be huge…

Unfortunately, not much is really known about this film yet as there is no Venom movie trailer. But perhaps the biggest selling point of the film so far is that Tom Hardy will be playing Venom.

As far as I’m concerned, that’s enough to get me pumped for the film, although we really need to see some Venom snippets to truly judge.

If Tom Hardy’s portrayal of Venom is anything like his portrayal of Bane then I reckon we’re in for a treat.

Tom Hardy has a knack for playing epic villains and I doubt this new Venom movie will disappoint. I think it’s about time Venom got his own Marvel movie; he definitely deserves it.

I would personally love Tom Holland to also star in the film as Spider-Man but that has yet to be determined.

Oh well, I guess we’ll have to wait and see, but Tom Hardy and Tom Holland in the same film would be huge. Battle of the Tom’s!

Anyway, there you have it. My list of 5 2018 Marvel Movies that you need to watch out for.
