Did you know?
It’s a tradition in the Marvel movie universe that in every phase 2 movie, some character’s hand or arm gets chopped off as a tribute to the classic movie, Star Wars.
Each year, when November ends, everyone starts to look for next year’s movies. People think about the many sequels, prequels, spin-offs, adaptations, and much more that “let this year end!” remains as the only wish! Here is one such I-can’t-wait-to-watch-this-movie list.
Avengers: Infinity War, Part 1
The crowd went wild when Spider-Man made his entry in Captain America: Civil war. It was overwhelming when the gang of Avengers split into two and War Machine lost his ability to walk. Now, Thanos is planning an attack on Earth, and because of this civil war, humans are utterly defenseless! Can it get any scarier?
The universe of Marvel is releasing Avengers: Infinity War, Part 1 and there is nothing you can do but count the days till 4th May 2018.
The fans were eagerly waiting for Wonder Woman. Its stunts, graphics, and storyline were worth every penny. Many were a little disappointed by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but the last DC movie was very satisfying. There was a glimpse of Aquaman in Batman v Superman, and comic geeks can’t wait to see it as an independent film on the big screen. The trailer of the movie is already released; the film will be in theaters on 21st December 2018.
Ant-Man and the Wasp
A con-man gets a second chance to right his wrongs using a super-powered suit which can shrink him to the size of an ant.

He totally stole the show in Civil War, when he got really big and scared the wits out of everyone including himself. Now, he’s coming with his partner the Wasp on 6th July. So, mark the date my friends, because you can’t afford to miss this!
