After a much loved blockbuster Spiderman: No Way Home Tom Holland’s next big project is a big-budget adaptation of the Uncharted game franchise, starring alongside the legendary Mark Wahlberg as younger versions of Nathan Drake and Victor "Sully" Sullivan, comes from Ruben Fleischer, the director of movies like Venom and Zombieland. The film will follow the story of Drake's first treasure hunt that takes him in search of "the greatest treasure never found," as well as clues that could lead to his long-lost brother. This one has surely excited fans of both the game and these megastars.

9. John Wick: Chapter 4

 

Keanu Reeves is the ultimate action hero and internets most loved man out there, in his second massive franchise after the Matrix, John Wick has bought action and guns to the scene like we have never seen before, it would be fun to see what lies next in the fourth instalment of this hyper-violent gun-fu franchise, Keanu Reeves reprises his role as legendary hitman John Wick. Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane, and Lance Reddick reprise their roles from the Wick-verse, while singer-model Rina Sawayama makes her feature film debut.

8. Top Gun: Maverick

 
We are big fans of Tom Cruise, and I can guarantee you that everytime I hear the Top Gun anthem it gives us goosebumps, Maverick is back once again, and he is ready for a dog fight After a few delays due to the pandemic, Cruise reprises his role as Captain Pete "Maverick" Mitchell in this much-awaited decades-late sequel to Tony Scott's Top Gun. Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, and Ed Harris include the cast. Joseph Kosinski, who directed Tron: Legacy and Oblivion, is in charge of the direction of this film.

7. Lightyear

 
Lightyear, directed by Pete Docter of Monsters, Inc. and Up, is an incredibly curious spin-off of Pixar's Toy Story that appears to serve as a story arc for the fictional human character Buzz Lightyear (voiced by Captain America Chris Evans), who inspired the action figure of the same name. As fans of the Toy Story films its incredibly exciting for us the spin they will put on Buzz’s origin story. One thing a pixar film always guaranteed to have a massive heart and we feel it will be no different this time.

6. Spiderman: Across the Spider-Verse

 
Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson, and Hailee Steinfeld return for a sequel to what many consider to be the best Spider-Man film ever made, animated or not. Issa Rae joins the cast as Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman in this eagerly awaited sequel. We can’t wait to see Miles Morales’ next chapter across the spiderverse.

5. Black Adam

 
Dwayne Johnson joins the DCEU as the titular near-unstoppable DC supervillain in Black Adam. Johnson's Black Adam will face off against the Justice Society, which includes Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone. A demand for a Black Adam film has been there since the turn of the century and nobody other than "The Rock" could play this role to the perfection. He is in best shape of his life and one thing DJ assures that nobody brings it like him weather its in the WWE ring or on the big screen.

4. Morbius

Morbius, the third film in Sony's Spider-Man Universe, is the origin storey of one of Marvel comics' darkest supervillains. Michael Morbius  who is played by Jared Leto, a scientist whose research to find a cure for his rare blood disease transforms him into an extremely powerful vampire. Michael Keaton reprises his role as the supervillain Vulture from Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017). The appearance of the character suggests a crossover between Sony's universe and the MCU, but it is unclear whether Morbius takes place before or after the events of Homecoming. Daniel Espinosa directs the film, and the trailer suggests that it belongs in both the horror and superhero genres. 

3. Doctor Strange II Multiverse of Madness

 
The Doctor Strange sequel, which has been pushed back a few months to May (thanks COVID) , brings director Sam Raimi back to the superhero fold and into the MCU for the tale of Marvel's Sorcerer Supreme dealing with the perils of the multiverse after the events of. Spiderman: No Way Home. Wanda Maximoff (who was last seen in WandaVision studying the Darkhold) is played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Benedict Wong, Rachel McAdams, and Chiwetel Ejiofor return. America Chavez will also be played by Xochitl Gomez. Doctor Strange clearly has a bigger role to play in Marvel's phase 4 and we can't wait till may to watch Marvel's next chapter unfold.

2. Thor: Love and Thunder

 
Chris Hemsworth's Thor returns in Taika Waititi's Love and Thunder, alongside Tessa Thompson, Natalie Portman, Chris Pratt, Jaimie Alexander, Pom Klementieff, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Jeff Goldblum, and Vin Diesel, as the only original Avenger to receive four films. Christian Bale appears as the villain Gorr the God Butcher, while Portman's Jane Foster transforms into her own version of Thor.

1. The Batman

 
The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves,will be the darkest big-screen portrayal of the Caped Crusader to date. Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Andy Serkis, and Colin Farrell star in this Batman: Year Two adaptation, which pits Pattinson's masked vigilante against Paul Dano's Riddler. The trailer and the tone of the film has already has our hairs rising with excitement and I for sure can’t wait to see what this DC standalone film will bring.
