:: WHERE TO BEGIN?!?
Michael Eisner said it best when he tweeted that, not since IronMan1 has Marvel taken such a leap of faith. It’s safe to say that they’ve established themselves as a powerhouse studio, capable of putting out blockbuster movies. But those are names like Robert Downey Jr and Captain America…pretty “safe” entities to put up on the screen.
1. STAR WARS 7 CAST [starwars.com]
So many amazing names just got tied to this! Along with Ford, Mayhew, Fischer, you’ve now got great newcomers like Andy Serkis!

2. DC MOVIE CONFUSION [nerdology]
So Zack Snyder is officially the director of the Justice League, and it has a release date. And it seems that a ton of characters were tagged with the Superman/Batman movie…but they might be part of the JL movie instead. It’s all a bunch of hogwash with DC trying to catch up to Marvel and iiiii doooon’t like it :P
3. MARVEL NETFLIX SHOWS [/film]
It’s been confirmed that at least the Daredevil show coming to Nflix will take place within the Avengers cinematic universe. The other three, along with the Defenders show, haven’t yet…but I think it’s safe to say they will.
So that means that Marvel has now teamed up; Avengers (and all their solo movies), the SHIELD show, Guardians of the Galaxy, the Defenders (and their solo shows), and the Peggy Carter show rumored for next season. Have I missed any?
1. STARWARS STANDALONE FILMS [/Film]
Disney has confirmed that aside from the release of EpisodeVII they will release several movies based on solo characters, the first of which will be Yoda. If this is another “CloneWarsCGI” movie, I’m okay with it.
2. DIGIMON REBOOT [FilmThrasher.com]
Not only has Nickalodeon picked up the series, but this 6th season is being called a remake!
3. MAJOR MARVEL MOVIE SPOILERS!!!
News/rumors on the 3 wave of movies is already being released, which undoubtedly gives away plots to the 2nd wave which is only starting (w/ IronMan3) this year…watch at your own risk!!!

4. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN
I started the summer loathing the idea ofanotherreboot, but found myself seeing this movie twice, a pleasant surprise!
I was looking forward to this movie for well over a year, planned a whole mini-road trip with friends for opening night, and saw it 2 more times in theaters after that!
2. THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
It’s the friggin end to the legendary Nolan trilogy…
1. THE AVENGERS
This takes the top spot solely for it’s ability to allow me the pleasure of escaping reality for a few moments to fall back into my childhood. I saw it multiple times, played the stupid game on Fbook, read the fanfiction, and am very excited for the upcoming TV show, and ran Marvel movie marathons in celebration before and after it’s release.
