1. Captain America: Civil War

What it’s about: Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

Why you should watch it: Captain America turns a full 360 degrees and becomes the bad little boy. Aside from that we get to see the Avengers split in half and try to destroy each other. Well, isn’t that exciting!

Release Date: May 6, 2016

2. X-Men Apocalypse

What it’s about: Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

Why you should watch it: We get to see the big names return to the spotlight. Storm, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Nightcrawler — these characters are part of the core of fifty years of X-Men stories, and they are all finally back on the big screen. Along with A-class heroes would be the A-class villain, Apocalypse.

Release Date: May 27, 2016

3. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows

What it’s about: The Turtles come into conflict with T.C.R.I. scientist Dr. Baxter Stockman, the Foot Clan and the return of their enemy, The Shredder, who has hired Stockman to create mutants of his own in the form of Bebop and Rocksteady. Meanwhile, an invasion above New York City is led by the Dimension X inhabitant known as Krang. The Turtles are joined in the fight with their human friends April O’Neil, Vern Fenwick and the vigilante Casey Jones.

Why you should watch it: The first film was arguably the most disappointing film of 2014, but then the trailer came out and there was a completely different atmosphere. Not to mention new turtle designs.

Release Date: June 3, 2016

4. Suicide Squad

What it’s about: A secret government agency run by Amanda Waller, named A.R.G.U.S creates a task force comprising super villains, the “Suicide Squad”. They are assigned to execute dangerous tasks in exchange for shorter prison sentences.

Why you should watch it: Suicide Squad has a unique plot along with a twist that can be pretty cliche but nevertheless interesting. The film will star Joker (Jared Leto), Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), The Enchantress (Cara Delevigne) and many more.

Release Date: August 5, 2016

5. Doctor Strange

What it’s about: “Doctor Strange” follows the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions. This film is part of the Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe where new heroes are introduced to continue adventures that fans dearly love.

Why you should watch it: Benedict Cumberbatch speaking gibberish nonsense such as, “By the Ruby Rings of Raggador!”  If he manages the incantations anywhere near as well as he says the word “penguin,” that alone will be worth the price of admission.

Release Date: November 4, 2016

Trailer Release: Filming is currently underway so there is no official indication of when the official trailer will premiere. There is a strong chance that the first theatrical trailer of the film will release ahead of Captain America: Civil War, which opens on 6 May 2016.
