New Movies To Be Released

First official look at David Corenswet as Superman.

Superman — Coming out Jul. 11, 2025
The first movie is Superman by writer and director James Gunn. Originally called “Superman: Legacy,” Gunn decided to shorten the name.

This movie has a lot of people excited, but also worried because the Superman films have a lot of pressure on them because of the oversaturated market.

According to the film’s official synopsis, Superman “tells the story of Superman’s journey to reconcile his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing as Clark Kent of Smallville, Kansas.”

David Corenswet will play Superman, getting a career-making role to star as Superman. This is the first time he’s been the lead in a major Hollywood film, the 30-year-old actor being best known for his supporting roles in two Netflix series, “The Politician” and “Hollywood.”

The main antagonist of the movie is Lex Luthor, played by Nicholas Hoult who played Beast in the X-Men films. Rachel Brosnahan from “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” will portray Lois Lane.

Deadpool and Wolverine — Coming out Jul. 26, 2024
The next movie that should be a blockbuster this summer is Deadpool and Wolverine. This movie has been in talks for a long time, so it’s very exciting to audiences to see that it will be coming out this year.

The film will be directed by Shawn Levy, director of Free Guy and Real Steel. Deadpool will be played by Ryan Reynolds and Wolverine will be played by Hugh Jackman.

The plot of the movie starts with the Time Variance Authority (TVA), a bureaucratic organization that exists outside of time and space and monitors the timeline. TVA pulls Wade Wilson ( Deadpool) from his quiet life and sets him on a mission with Wolverine that will change the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The mission will take the two characters on the road where they will inevitably meet trouble and some familiar faces.
The trailer released in April shows that Wolverine isn’t the same character featured in “Logan” or “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” Instead, he is more like Wade — wallowing in guilt because he thinks he let the world down and drinks too much. In the trailer, Deadpool also suggests that this Wolverine saved the universe, so expect a very different character.

“IF” official movie poster.

IF — May 17, 2024
A more child-friendly movie that will come out this year is “IF” — Imaginary Friends. The movie focuses on a young girl who goes through a difficult experience and begins to see everyone’s imaginary friends who have been left behind when their real-life friends grew up.

This movie was written and directed by John Krasinski, actor of The Office, starring Ryan Reynolds.

When the young girl discovers that she can see everyone’s imaginary friends, she embarks on a magical adventure to reconnect forgotten IFs with their kids, who are now adults.

 

 

 

“The Batman” (2022) official poster.

The Batman Part II — Oct. 3, 2025
This next movie won’t be out until 2026, but audiences can’t wait. “The Batman Part II” starring Robert Pattison and directed by Matt Reeves, is the sequel to “The Batman” and is all about action and mystery. At the end of “The Batman” Gotham is submerged underwater, setting the stage for a unique challenge. “The Batman” also ended with Pattinson’s Dark Knight seen in a more heroic light by the people of Gotham City, so the sequel will presumably start with that status quo.

One strong possibility is that the sequel will show the Dark Knight facing off against Thomas Elliot, a.k.a. Hush, thrilling audiences for the potential.
