5 – Spider-man Across the Spider-Verse Part One.

After the critical and commercial success of Spider-Man into the Spider-Verse it was only a matter of time before we saw a sequel.

The first trailer looks great.

3- Avatar 2.

This movie has been delayed for nearly a decade, but James Cameron promises the wait has been worth it. And to be honest, what is best for the director of Titanic (1997) and Avatar (2009) is to have the mummies found. Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Sam Worthington, Stephen Lang return and Kate Winslet and Michelle Yeoh join.

2 – The Flash.

DC’s cinematic universe has found mixed responses from critics and the box office, but has achieved some hits like Wonder Woman (2017), Aquaman (2018) and Shazam! (2019). The Flash with a rather tortuous path has changed scriptwriters and director several times until Andy Muschietti (It (2017)) managed to take over. The film promises to make a clean slate in DC, especially in its most controversial properties such as Justice League (2017), it also brings back Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne and Michael Keaton as Batman.

1 – The Batman.

After several delays due to covid, Matt Reeves’ The Batman will be released in March 2022. This film promises to bring us a Batman who finds a balance between reality and the comic. In addition to using the character’s detective skills, which have been neglected in the cinema.

So far the progress looks quite promising. They star Robert Pattinson, Paul Dano, Zoë Kravitz, Peter Sarsgaard, Andy Serkis, Colin Farrell and Jeffey Wright.
