Movie lovers around the world will have their summer of entertainment spoiled by a snowstorm, with the upcoming Superhero movie season set to kick off in a blockbuster manner.
The year’s biggest blockbusters have been given the green light by the studios, with Warner Bros. announcing on Monday that it is releasing its first slate of tentpole superhero movies, including the next two in the Dwayne Johnson directed action thriller, The Last Man On Earth.
The Last Dragon will begin filming this spring, with Disney and Sony following suit with two more superhero tentpole films, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.
2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming, in 2019.
In 2020, the studio will announce the third installment of the Guardians of The Galaxy franchise, The Avengers: Infinity War.
The Avengers films have already grossed $1.9 billion at the worldwide box office, so a full-blown sequel to those films is certainly on the cards.
But even if there is an Infinity War sequel, it is unlikely that the film would come to the screen in 2020.
While it is certainly possible that Disney could use the event to expand their universe, it also appears that Marvel has their sights set on the long-awaited sequel.
As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel Studios is already in negotiations with Paramount Pictures to develop a sequel to The Avengers.
The studio’s first foray into the superhero genre came with the 2003 release of the first Avengers film, The Incredible Hulk.
The film had an incredible box office success, grossing over $1 billion at box office in its opening weekend.
It was the second highest grossing film in history at the time.
But in 2005, Marvel made a change in the direction of the franchise.
Instead of bringing back a classic superhero team of superheroes to take on a new threat, Marvel instead decided to reboot the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with a new team of Avengers being formed.
The Marvel Cinematics Universe has continued to grow in recent years, with all five movies coming out this year.
The new Guardians of War will be the latest addition to the MCU, with Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, John C. Reilly, Karen Fukuhara, Pom Klementieff, Pom Dawes and Michael Peña set to return as the Guardians.
The movie has a budget of $155 million and is slated to open in 3D on April 16, 2021.
