DC steps up in this installment of This Week in Superhero Movies, as “Man of Steel 2” (AKA “Superman vs Batman”) rumors heat up. Will we really be seeing Wonder Woman on the big screen after all these years? Meanwhile, with “Thor: The Dark World” in theaters, HItFix selected our picks for the Best Marvel movies so far. Catch up on “The Avengers,” “X-Men,” and all the rest of the latest superhero news here:
“Man of Steel 2”
Besides Superman and Batman, just how many heroes are going to be in this movie? Will Olga Kurylenko, Gal Gadot, or Elodie Yung suit up as Wonder Woman? Is Adam Driver (“Girls”) really going to appear as Nightwing? Who’s gonna play Bat-Mite?
“Thor: The Dark World”
While it won’t hit the same heights as “The Avengers” or “Iron Man 3,” the latest Marvel sequel is hammering the competition at the box office. Take that, “Last Vegas”!
“The Avengers: Age of Ultron”
Ready for another dose of Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill? The “S.H.I.E.L.D.” actress says she’ll certainly be seen on the big screen again.
“The Wolverine” sequel
He’s baaaaaaack. Hugh Jackman will play the cranky Canadian mutant in another film for director James Mangold.
“X-Men: Days of Future Past”
A handful of new images show off Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Beast (Nicholas Hoult). Show us the Senitinels already.
The Marvel-Netflix Superpower Hour
Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and other Marvel heroes won’t be seen in theaters or on TV, but online in their own original series. All roads will lead to a “Defenders” series, and will likely tie into future Marvel features. The future is now.
