2022 Anticipated Movies
Yesterday I talked about my most anticipated Television shows/series that were coming out. You can see that here. Today we’re going to talk about movies. And for me, I have the same issue I have with television shows. Marvel comes out with a lot of movies. I see all of those movies, generally in theaters, so I could just do a list of Marvel movies, but I’m going to find more that I’m excited for as well.
Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness
Thor: Love and Thunder
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
Like I said, I could have just done this with Marvel movies, and we have a lot of them that I’m really excited for and curious about. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness being a horror style movie in the MCU is going to be great. Thor: Love and Thunder seems to match-up with the style of Thor: Ragnarok and seeing Jane Foster as Lady Thor will be fun. Quantumania is going to give us more Kang. And Wakanda Forever is going to have some big questions to answer about a new Black Panther.
This one I don’t have that high hopes for, but I’m curious about it. Tom Holland as Nathan Drake is an interesting choice, and the trailer looks perfectly okay. It’s a video game adaptation which means I’m always going to have low expectations for it, but while I certainly won’t be seeing this one in theaters, when I can rent it, I probably am going to watch it.
Sonic The Hedgehog 2
Besides the really bad first trailer and weird look for Sonic, the first movie is actually really fun. I like Sonic as a character and they did a good job of creating an interesting enough story and the action is a lot of fun. So another Sonic movie, I hope that this one can keep the same magic as the first one. Again, doubt I’ll see it in theaters, but it’s definitely one I can see actually picking up a Blu-Ray/DVD of it to go along with owning the other one.
John Wick: Chapter 4
Now for a movie that I likely will see in theaters. I didn’t see the first two in theaters but did see the third. The John Wick films are great. The Gunkata (I believe that’s the term) is amazing, and the story is really entertaining. It’s a world of hitmen and honor in how the hitmen do things. So it’s a world with cool rules to it and depth to what is happening. You don’t expect that for a film that is all about action.
And the action. I could talk about the action for a long time. The fights are as much pieces of art as they are bloody/violent fights. Everything just flows so well the set pieces where the action takes place are really good. Each movie has some action that really stands out in it, but even the small fights are extremely well done.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One)
Finally, this isn’t a Marvel movie, but a Sony animated Spider-Verse film. I’m excited for it, because even though I didn’t see Into the Spider-Verse in theaters, when I did watch it, I really loved it. The style is just amazing on the film and this one is going to continue with more of that and grow that animated work that Sony is creating. And while I’m sure that Sony is hoping to add Miles Morales into the MCU somehow at some point in time, the stuff they have done on the animated front is amazing.
That’s it for movies for me. I am guessing that other people will think of movies that I’ve missed or have more they want to see. There is a Super Mario movie coming out and Chip ‘n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers. I might check those out at some point in time, but I’m not anticipating them.
What movies are you looking forward to in 2022?
