Upcoming 2012 Summer Blockbuster Films

The 2012 summer movie season is almost upon us and it looks like this could be one of the most memorable seasons in years, especially if you are a fan of superhero movies. Let's take a look at some of the more anticipated films of the summer:

“The Avengers”

“The Avengers” has been on the minds of movie and comic book fans since 2008 when it was all but promised to us by a brief post-credits scene in “Iron Man.” “The Avengers” has already gotten a world premiere in Hollywood and, while there is an embargo on proper reviews until May 2, early buzz has been overwhelmingly positive. Comic book fans will finally get to see a proper team-up of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Hulk, Hawkeye and Black Widow on the big screen on May 4 (April 25 in PH).


Sci-fi fans have been buzzing about this movie for a long time thanks to the return of Ridley Scott to a sci-fi/horror genre. Not many people know what to expect with this one, but rumors and trailers suggest that it could be a pseudo-prequel to Scott's sci-fi/horror classic, “Alien.” Even if it has nothing to do with that movie, “Prometheus” still looks like it could be one of the best and most sophisticated sci-fi films in years. Look for it starting on June 8 (June 7 in PH).

“G.I. Joe: Retaliation”

The first “G.I. Joe” movie wasn't exactly cinematic gold, but it was still the kind of fun action movie that people expected from a toy line. Not much is known about this one aside from the fact that it features Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Bruce Willis as Joes and that Cobra Commander will appear in the iconic costume that he wore in the classic 1980s TV show. “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” is scheduled for release on June 29.

“The Amazing Spider-Man”

It may feel too soon for a Spider-Man reboot, but apparently that's what we're getting from Sony on July 3. This movie not only promises to go into the untold story of the character's parents, but it is said to be more grounded in reality than Sam Raimi's previous Spider-Man trilogy. Whether or not this means we'll be seeing Spidey fight crime by using skills learned in forensic science colleges is anyone's guess. Lots of people are skeptical about this one, but we'll just have to wait and see how it will turn out.

“The Dark Knight Rises”

The third chapter in Christopher Nolan's acclaimed Batman trilogy is quite possibly the most anticipated film of the summer. Little is known about the plot aside from the fact that it's set eight years after “The Dark Knight” and that it will feature Batman going up against the terrorist Bane. So far, audiences and critics alike have enjoyed Nolan's Batman films, which have combined comic book action with the kind of realism and believability that suggested that the screenwriters may have spent more time studying crime dramas and at criminal justice colleges than comic books in ways that hadn't been done before. Here's hoping the third film will bring this saga to a satisfying conclusion.

So there you have it.  A short check list of the movies you would really love to see this coming months.  Will they live up to the hype they are promising the audience? Then let's find out for ourselves as we raid the cinemas this summer.
