Great hub!

I am anticipating almost all of these big time. I had never actually heard of 'Planes' - that's awesome! I am going to need to write that up on my website. And I call myself a movie buff!!?

Of them all I am most looking forward to Iron Man 3 or Man of Steel.

jmartin1344: Thanks! Haha; I hadn't heard of all of these until I started researching for this. I want to see most of them! I can't believe how many awesome movies are coming out this summer. I am definitely looking forward to seeing Iron Man 3, but Man of Steel is growing on me. Thanks for your comment!

It seems like all the good movies are saved until summer and awards season. Usually awards season doesn't have that many I'm interested in but I think the summer has some good offerings. I definitely wanna see Star Trek. I should see Iron Man 3 but considering I haven't seen 2 yet I need to follow order of operations. Thanks for sharing!

Alecia Murphy: You're right. I think summer movies are more entertaining to the masses, while movies shown around the awards season are more serious and dramatic. You should see Iron Man 2 so you can see the third movie! You're welcome. Thanks for reading. :)

'Iron Man 3' - 'Wolverine' and - of course - 'The Great Gatsby' for me please!

Mike Robbers: Yes, all of these sound awesome. I haven't decided whether or not I want to see 'The Great Gatsby' yet. I'm not a big fan of tragedies, but I'm sure it will be an excellent film adaptation of the book. Thanks for commenting!

Thanks for the great list. Some of the movies, like Star Trek for instance, I'm waiting for. Others I haven't heard of and then there are some I think will not do well. I'll be vey interested in how the Great Gatsby compares to the Robert Redford version.

Cyndi10: You're welcome! I enjoyed researching for this. I really want to see Star Trek and Iron Man 3. True; the Robert Redford version is a classic. We'll have to see if the new movie becomes one as well.
