2013 is the year for superhero films! There are some major blockbusters coming out as well as some lesser-known flicks that you’ll still want to see. You’ve probably heard all about Iron Man III and Man of Steel, but there are some other movies on the horizon that are well worth waiting in line for. Check out these five upcoming superhero movies that you definitely don’t want to miss!
1. Kick-Ass 2: if you haven’t seen the first one, start downloading! The sequel to Kick Ass is coming out in June. Kick Ass 2 follows main characters Kick-Ass and Hit Girl as they try to form their own superhero outfit. Hit Girl’s cover is blow and Kick-Ass winds up intertwined with some mob-types. Kick Ass 2 will be a fun way to kick off the superhero movie season! The film will be released on June 28th.
2. The Wolverine: James Mangold’s new film follows Logan (Hugh Jackman) as he battles his way through Japan. You can expect lots of action and plenty of amazing fight scenes. It’s also easy to get hyped up for this film, since it follows the release of ‘X-Men: The Last Stand.’ The Wolverine will come to a theater near you on July 26th.
3. 300: Rise of An Empire: Zach Snyder has been one busy guy! Not only is Snyder the man behind the upcoming ‘Man of Steel’ film, he’s also working on the sequel to 300. The new film -- set to be released on August 2nd -- is based on the historic battle between the Athenians and the Persians showcasing the true strength of the Ancient Greeks. If 300: Rise of An Empire is anything like the original film, this will be one epic tale not to miss!
4. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For: who didn’t like the first Sin City film? From the way it was shot to the script, Sin City kicked. The newest Sin City installment is directed by Robert Rodriguez and includes a stellar cast. Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, and Rosario Dawson are all part of this crew. The film hits theaters on October 4th.
5. Thor: The Dark World: Thor returns on November 8th! While the last Thor film received mixed reviews, this one looks like it will pick up the slack. Directed by Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones) and includes actors such as Natalie Portman, Renee Russo, and Anthony Hopkins. With that kind of a cast line-up, it’s hard to imagine that this film will disappoint!
Add to this mix ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘Iron Man III’ and you have a serious year of films ahead. As always, Jack has been working hard at creating original t-shirt designs to go along with these upcoming films, so make sure to check out our current and future selections!
