SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME – Official Teaser Trailer

My 2011 Summer Movie Summary… So Far

Let’s face it.  This summer has been one of the best for movie goers, especially if you’re into superheroes.  So far this summer I’ve been to the movies five times.  I don’t think I’ve ever been to the movies that many times in one summer before.  Ranking them in order from most favorite to least favorite, I’ve seen:

  1. Captain America: The First Avenger
  2. Thor
  3. X-Men: First Class
  4. Transformers: Dark of the Moon
  5. Green Lantern

Marvel films are kicking ass when compared to DC Comics.  All these individual films leading their way up to The Avengers is just amazing.  I’m totally excited to see it!!! After seeing the trailer for The Avengers that’s at the end of Captain America, just makes me want to see it even more.  Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye, Nick Fury and many more all in one movie is just mind blowing.

If I had it my way, I’d have Christopher Nolan direct every DC Comics movie.  He has done a great job with the Batman films, making them feel down right dirty, gritty, and truly lifelike.  I look forward to seeing The Dark Knight Rises next summer.  After his epic Batman conclusion, I’m interested in seeing what he can do with Superman.  I wish he would have taken on Green Lantern.  I’m not saying Green Lantern was bad, it was just choppy.

Cowboys and Aliens and Rise of the Planet of the Apes look like fun, so I might see those.  As far as superhero films go, it looks like their finished for this summer.  Next summer is right around the corner – The Avengers, The Amazing Spider-Man, and The Dark Knight Rises.
