2017 in both movies and TV looks to have a ton of wonderful things that will come out and in this post I will highlight just 5 things that I am looking forward to in the year of 2017.
One of the most anticipated movies of 2017 without a doubt is Wonder Woman. We got a taste of Gal Godot's Amazon in Superman vs Batman. Many agreed that she was one of the best parts of the film in her short screen time.
Now in June, Diana gets her own film and I can't wait. With a strong supporting cast led by Chris Pine and Robin Wright and the talented Patty Jenkins directing, my hope is that Wonder Woman can raise the DC movies up to the level of the Marvel films. This female-led super hero movie will also be in my prediction the best super-hero movie of 2017.
Helmed by the creative genius behind the "Fargo" TV series, Legion is my most anticipated new TV show of 2017. Dan Stevens plays David Haller , son of Professor Charles Xavier, who finds that he might just be more than a mentally ill patient. Aubrey Plaza and Jean Smart are just a few of the supporting cast joining Stevens. This show looks like it might be the fun, psychedelic, slightly comic book-ish show that we have all been waiting for.
Star Wars: Episode VIII
Star Wars: Episode VIII is the most anticipated film of 2017. Continuing from where The Force Awakens left off, Rey meeting Luke Skywalker, Episode VIII brings us some new visions in the form of director Rian Johnson.
Getting to see Rey, Finn, Poe and Luke would be enough to get the emotions of Star Wars fan up. However there will be even more tears this time around when General Leia will be on the screen after the sudden passing of Carrie Fisher. Seeing one of Carrie's last performances on the screen will bring a wave of emotions to all fans and I can promise I will cry the first time I see her on the screen.
In a no-brainer winning move, The Defenders series brings together Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist in a highly-awaited crossover event. Not only do we get them together but also many fan-favorite supporting characters from these series including Karen Page, Trish Walker and Claire Temple back as well. Add in Sigourney Weaver as a mysterious villain and you have all the ingredients to not leave your home till you have watched this multiple times.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle
The sequel to breakout hit Kingsman, The Golden Circle brings back Eggsy , Merlin and Roxy as they head to the USA to stop a criminal mastermind played by the legendary Julianne Moore.
The Additions of Moore, Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal and Halle Berry add spark to the movie. But the return of Colin Firth's Harry Hart adds a bit of mystery to the film. Many called the first Kingsman film one of their favorite movies of 2014 so the expectations have been boosted for this one. Thankfully Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn are back for this one and once again I am excited to see how much Eggsy has grown as a Kingsman.
