When we think about big blockbuster movies, we always think about superheroes, and it’s a big year for them at the box office!

1. Wonder Woman

This is the Wonder Woman movie we’ve been waiting for all our lives! Not only is it a female-directed and female-led superhero movie (which is a triumph in and of itself), the action and great acting are appealing to everyone, regardless of age or gender.

 

Plus, we can’t WAIT for Leigh Bardugo’s Wonder Woman: Warbringer, the YA coming-of-age story for the world’s greatest super hero so we had to put her first on the list.

2. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

There’s a whole lot to love here—a fast-paced plot, comic relief, and one of the most lovable motley crews in cinema, including cute Groot, kick-butt Gamora, and the charmingly goofy Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord.

3. Spider-Man: Homecoming

This version of Peter Parker first stole our hearts in Captain America: Civil War, and we are so happy that he has his own spin-off movie. We predict a lot of love for this guy.

4. Thor: Ragnarok

We don’t know how the world is going to handle waiting until November for Thor: Ragnarok. We about died when the trailer showed him losing his hammer, Mjölnir, and we’re not sure how this Asgardian god is going to get out of the mess he’s in. But we do know that we’ll enjoy going along for the ride.

5. Justice League

Finally, finally, comes Justice League! Thank you, superhero gods! We’re already geeking out over this killer cast: from alpha male Aquaman to fierce Wonder Woman (who we definitely don’t mind seeing on the big screen twice this year) to brooding Batman. We’re not thrilled that Superman didn’t make an appearance in the trailer, but he’s gotta be there, right?
