Happy New Year! 2018 is over, 2019 is upon us! And you know what that means? New superhero movies! I’m going to rank them in what I’m most excited for. If you disagree, awesome! Drop me a comment and let me know your list and why. Click on the director’s name to see other films they have done. Click on the movie posters to see the trailer (if they have one). Now, without further ado:
Release Date: April 12, 2019
Director: Neil Marshall
Cast: David Harbour, Milla Jovovich, Daniel Dae Kim
Why #10: No one asked for this. Hellboy had two successful movies in the early 2000s, so there doesn’t seem to be a need for a reboot, perhaps a third installment, but not a reboot. But have you seen the posters? The posters alone are enough to get me excited.
#9 Batman: Hush
Release Date: April 16, 2019
Cast: Steve Blum, Kevin Conroy, Tasia Valenza
Why #9: I’m not a Batman fan. However, there’s been a lot of excitement around this animated adaptation. Plus, Kevin Conroy.
#8 Wonder Woman: Bloodlines
Release Date: October 22, 2019
Why #8: We know nothing about this animated movie besides it’s name, so there’s no reason to put it higher on the list. Bloodlines makes me think it has to do with her mythology roots, which I’d love. I find Greek mythos very interesting, so if we find out that it’s about Wonder Woman’s ties to that, it’ll move down this list a ways!
#7 X-Men: Dark Phoenix
Release Date: June 7, 2019
Director: Simon Kinberg
Cast: Sophie Turner, Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence
Why #7: Yet another X-Men movie… Well, at least it’s a good story! I am excited to see how they bring this arc to life, however, I’m worried they may not be able to pull it off.
#6 Spider-Man: Far From Home
Release Date: July 5, 2019
Director: Jon Watts
Cast: Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jake Gyllenhaal
Why #6: Mysterio. Mysterio is why I am excited. I like this character, and finally he is coming to life. Also, rumors say Vulture is returning and perhaps a casting for Chameleon… Sinister Six? If there is a Sinister Six announcement, it’ll jump a few spots!
#5 Captain Marvel
Release Date: March 8, 2019
Directors: Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck
Cast: Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law
Why #5: Like Spider-Man, Captain Marvel is bring to me a villain I’d love to see. Finally, the Skrull have come.
Release Date: April 5, 2019
Director: David Sandberg
Cast: Zachary Levi, Mark Strong, Grace Fulton
Why #4: Wasn’t excited about this movie, not a fan of Captain Marvel, but then I saw the trailer. I love DC, and this movie is a super-powered DC fan. It looks fun and I can’t wait to see how it turns out.
#3 Avengers: Endgame
Release Date: April 26, 2019
Director: Anthony Russo & Joe Russo
Cast: Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr.
Why #3: Nope, not #1. Why? They killed Crossbones way to early in Civil War. I no longer am super invested in the MCU because I look for accurate depictions of comics. I am excited for what this movie may be setting up though. The storylines that can come from this, the characters that may be added, and a possible Professor Hulk.
#2 Reign of Supermen
Release Date: January 13, 2019
Director: Sam Liu
Cast: Cameron Monaghan, Rainn Wilson, Nathan Fillion
Why #2: I almost put this movie at #1. I love this comic line, and after the success of the animated adaptation of the Death of Superman (the preceding story), I am overflowing with excitement.
#1 New Mutants
Release Date: August 2, 2019
Director: Josh Boone
Cast: Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, Charlie Heaton
Why #1: I have been excited for this movie ever since it was announced. But I’m not excited for the movie in itself. I’m excited for the genre that it is starting. Superhero Horror. So many comic characters would work great in horror movies, and I’m hoping this movie will be a success and open the gates.

Hush need to be much higher. I read the graphic novel and its the best Batman story ever. And I loved Death of Superman but not that excited about Reign of Superman.
#INFINITY WAR #1 🙂
