Graphic artist Dylan Todd (in collaboration with Comics Alliance) has created "Supermovies," an infographic that gives a helpful look at all known superhero movies coming out over the next six years and beyond. All the dates are referenced in detail at Comics Alliance.
2015 looks pretty bare compared to the coming years, but it has some large non superhero movies scheduled, including Star Wars: Episode VII, Jurassic World, Mad Max: Fury Road, Tomorrowland, James Bond #24, Fast and Furious 7, Inside Out, Terminator: Genisys, Pan, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, Mission: Impossible 5, The Good Dinosaur, and The Hateful Eight. So don't worry, even without a full slate of superhero films, next year is going to be an insane year of movies.

The Hunger Games books were extremely popular and their film counterparts have proven to be similarly admired. With Jennifer Lawrence portraying Katniss Everdeen, she has earned the franchise a plethora of adoring fans, many of which have never read the books on which the films are based. That means they are unaware of things that have been changed or those that don’t make the cut into the cinematic universe.
As with most successful books that are turned into films, the cinematic versions are often designed and created as pieces of work that can stand alone as a separate entity. That has proven so with Harry Potter, and is even a method of adaptation that is often seen in TV shows, just look at Game of Thrones.
However, not all viewers of the movies have read the books, something that die-hard fans often perceive as a flaw of character, »

James Gunn is riding high right now. He took an obscure team of misfits from Marvel Comics and turned them into the biggest (domestic) movie of the year, at least until The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay - Part 1 hits later in the year.
So, what did Gunn do to celebrate his success? He started writing Guardians of the Galaxy 2, of course.
“I spent all day on Aug. 1, the day the first movie was released, writing ‘Guardians 2.' I was so excited about it and I was finally able to let go of the last one and begin the second one. I always saw this as a universe, not just as one story.”
Here's what he says about the opening of the film:
"It’s going to be a really surprising open. What happens is all the characters are killed in the first 10 minutes,” Gunn joked. “In really horribly brutal fashion. »

Next summer, the 67-year-old Arnold Schwarzenegger will once again return to his signature role of The Terminator in the awkwardly-titled reboot Terminator: Genisys, and franchise creator James Cameron has been speaking about the project during a chat with Deadline, explaining how the aged Arnie can be integrated into the plot of the film:
“I wasn’t interested in producing it or working on it actively, but I did want to put in a good word for Arnold,” stated Cameron, who directed both The Terminator and its sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day. “I pointed out that the outer covering [of the Terminator] was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age. You could theoretically have a Terminator that was sent back in time, missed his target, and ended up just kind of living on in society. Because he is a learning computer and has a brain as a central processor he »
