What We Know So Far: Writer/director Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars) has been attached to direct New Mutants for some time now, but 20th Century Fox finally moved this thing into production after the success of Deadpool and Logan. The film is both YA-esque and horror-tinged in tone
Avengers: Infinity War
Release Date: May 4, 2018
Directors: Joe and Anthony Russo
Superhero movies in 2018What We Know So Far: Marvel is finally tackling the Infinity War storyline, and it’ll take two films to tell it. The main antagonist will be Thanos (played by Josh Brolin), although he’ll be joined by his Black Order aka the “Children of Thanos” as subvillains the Avengers heroes will have to defeat first. Indeed, the film stars nearly every single character who’s appeared in the MCU before in what’s said to be a “culmination event.”
FOX: DEADPOOL 2 – JUNE 1, 2018
The Merc with a Mouth is coming back. Deadpool was a huge hit for 20th Century Fox; the Ryan Reynolds starer grossed over $783 million worldwide, so it’s little surprise that a sequel was ordered. Reynolds will return to play the R-rated anti-hero, to be directed by David Leitch.
Ant-Man and the Wasp
Release Date: July 6, 2018
Director: Peyton Reed
Cast: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lily, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Walton Goggins, Laurence Fishburne, Michael Peña, Randall Park, Judy Greer and Hannah John-Kamen
Superhero movies in 2018 What We Know So Far: Evangeline Lily‘s Wasp will be the co-star of this film and not just the “female lead”, making this Marvel Studios’ first release in which the heroine is in the title. Plot-wise we don’t know much, but Michelle Pfeiffer is playing Janet Van Dyne, so we presume the story will at least partially revolve around heading to the Quantum Realm to rescue her. Meanwhile, Walton Goggins plays the villainous Sonny Burch.
PIXAR: THE INCREDIBLES 2: JUNE 15, 2018
Superhero movies in 2018 Rumors of a sequel to The Incredibles have been rife ever since the movie was released back in 2004.

FOX: X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX – NOVEMBER 2ND, 2018
Fox’s announcement that there would be a Dark Phoenix movie, was greeted with joy by most. The X-Men franchise is branching out in all directions, from the deeply poignant Logan, to the irreverently funny Deadpool. Somewhere in the middle of it all, sits Professor Charles Xavier and his school for Gifted Youngsters.
