Your Superhero Summer Movies

Every summer the studios trot out big movies full of action and superheroes hoping to start a big successful franchise. But for every Iron Man and Batman, there’s a stinker like The Punisher. This summer is no different as we have four giant superhero movies coming at you. First out of the gate on May 6th is Thor starring Chris Hemsworth (Star Trek) and Oscar winners Anthony Hopkins and Natalie Portman. Then you have the newly rebooted XMen franchise offering X Men: First Class starring James MacAvoy (Wanted), Michael Fassbender (Inglorious Basterds), January Jones (Mad Men), Nicholas Hoult (A Single Man) and recent Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone) which looks at the origins of these people with extraordinary powers. Two weeks later on 6/17) Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively hook up in The Green Lantern which unfortunately looks like it might just as bad as this winter’s Seth Rogan mess The Green Hornet. (FYI Hollywood~ perhaps you should avoid comic book characters with the word “green” in the title, just some friendly advice…). Finally on 7/22, Captain America comes to town in the guise of Chris Evans (Fantastic Four). Of these films, I’m most excited about the X Men film with Captain America a close second. Looking at the trailers for the other two, I’m left rather skeptical to say the least…. But now, I want to know which comic book superhero you want to see. Check out the trailers for all the movies below and then vote in my poll

. Enjoy
