TOP GEEKY MOVIES FOR 2016
By Jenna Clark
Alright, 2015 is over… Thank heavens!
Not only can we start fresh and new within our own lives, yet the movie directors and producers can try to entertain us with the most glorious films of the year!
Let’s begin with the most obvious. It has been all over facebook, websites, and tons of geeky magazines. That’s correct! Batman vs Superman
Superman and Batman have had many movies that have had ups and downs. Yet never have they been seen on the big screen simultaneously. This film will be the very first to feature both and the very first to feature The Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg and Wonder Women. If this ends up working this will be the first, for me, that DC has a decent movie. It could be the beginning of many Justice League movies to come as well!
In other news, I am excited about this DC movie, Suicide Squad!!! There has been a lot of info released and rumors in regards to this bad boy. Some info that we have seen is wonderful yet a lot of rumors are circling… Yet, the trailer out right now is beautifully put together. It makes me excited to see what the movie has in store for the Task Force X! We are ready for August 5th, 2016 to come already!
Good Luck to you DC!
Now with that out of the way let us get into the real badasses of 2016.
I cannot wait! Recently, through the trailers during Star Wars TFA, there was a trailer for Captain America: Civil War. Holy Shit! This was non stop adrenaline and quite beautifully shot. It will be the newest Avengers movie to hit. Unfortunately, it will be a bittersweet movie for most. Especially myself. Why?
“Well, glad you asked.”
To begin, this is to go along with the comic books, the Avengers become divided into two opposing factions and after extensive collateral damage prompts the politicians to pass an act regulating superhuman activity. The last Avengers movie we felt a bit of the tension to set up for this movie. Hold on until May 6, 2016
Which brings me to another trailer during Star Wars TFA, X-Men: Apocalypse. I feel bad for saying this yet maybe just a couple weeks ago I had watched X-Men: Days of future past for the first time. Though seeing this trailer was powerful! The story focuses on the return of the first and most powerful mutant, Apocalypse. This guy is a complete badass.
Disillusioned with the modern world, he recruits a team of powerful mutants to destructively clear humanity from the world… Did we mention he can control any mutant? We will find out May 27, 2016!
The Marvel Universe continues!
Gambit. This is one that I have recently found out about and was not aware of its making. I was looking up Channing Tatum on imdb.com and noticed that he, of all people, will be staring in Gambit. So I researched some more. Obviously, Gambit is an old childhood love in X-Men. Who doesn’t love his explosive card tricks, the use of kinetic energy, and Cajun accent? Well through my attempts I could not find much information on this movie. All I can tell you is that it will be out October 7, 2016. Sorry Geeks and Gals…
To Doctor Strange. I have many friends in love with this comic, again published by Marvel. Bringing this sexy character down is none other than Benedict Cumberbatch! He is going to be having a huge year coming up and we are all excited to see him playing the role of this enchanting Doctor. The general plot here is that Stephen Strange, the world’s top neurosurgeon, is injured in a car accident. This ruins his career but sets him on a journey of healing. We do love those. Nov 4, 2016
Last but not least within the Marvel epicness is my one and only movie I am so excited to be seeing!
That is correct Deadpool! I am looking forward to this masterpiece. Not only is Deadpool an interesting character to say the least. They decided to ask Ryan Reynolds to play this uncanny questionable superhero. It is one of the most highly anticipated movies for this year. Wade Wilson is diagnosed with a butt load of cancer. In order to give him a chance to live he is experimented on and in return is hunting down the man who nearly destroyed his life. It still incorporates the dark humor that you comic lovers yearn for!

Truly this will be another outstanding year for Marvel and all of the followers!
Turning our attention to one I will be interested in seeing. It took a while but World of Warcraft finally is transformed into a movie! This video game is a family staple… No, I am kidding though it is quite well known. There are books as well and it is set in none other than Azeroth. The plot will focus on the origin of the story. This was where the orcs and humans have their first encounter. The trailer was well done and the Orcs look epic to say the least. We will be looking forward to this film on June 10, 2016.
Zoolander 2 Just a completely ridiculous movie from the trailer and obviously from what we remember from the first movie! Derek Zoolander and Hansel McDonald are back! They are now recruited by Interpol to infiltrate the new world of high fashion. In the trailer, they have some great cameos too. Unfortunately, it comes out Feb 12, 2016, so I will be seeing Deadpool!
Lastly, we come to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Star Wars TFA was the first of many to start gracing our big screens. Very similar to what they have done with The Avengers.
Rogue One is the first film in the Star Wars Anthology, a collection of stand-alone stories set in the universe. The story is set in between events of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope. From what it sounds like a bunch of rebel fighters team up to take down some plans for a horrible creation, the Death Star! This one will not disappoint and cannot wait for it to come out Dec 16, 2016.
I know that there are and will be so many more classics coming our way though this is the beginning line up of my geeky 2016!
