Science fiction has always been a popular staple in the world of films, ranging from indie masterpieces to huge, Hollywood blockbusters that have changed movie-going forever.
The audience will always be fascinated by the stories that science fiction films have to tell, especially ones that focus not just on the stories themselves, but also the range of characters that are part of the experience.
It’s a great time to be alive for fans of science fiction, and 2022 is looking to be potentially one of the best years of all-time thanks to the many original titles entering the cinema.
Here we will look at some of the most anticipated sci-fi films of 2022.
Batman is a character that has spent a lot of time on the big screen, with many films under his belt, but oddly, none of them have been titled The Batman until now. Matt Reeves, famed director of such films as Cloverfield and War for the Planet of the Apes, has taken over as director from Ben Affleck (who himself has formerly played as Batman).
The Batman sees Robert Pattinson don the classic black suit as he protects Gotham City, combating crime as well as the Riddler, a fan favourite villain. Many fans of the character are welcoming a chance for him to once again have his own, independent film set outside of the DC universe.
Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness
Doctor Strange quickly became a favourite in the MCU, and many were delighted when he made more of an appearance in Infinity War and Endgame. He will once again be featuring in another upcoming film, this one centred around the Doctor as he battles more powerful evils, this time as part of time warping caused by the Time Stone.
There hasn’t been a whole lot of information released about this title, but from what we’ve seen so far, it looks like it might be one of the more promising MCU-based films in the last two years, and something to look forward to beside playing at mobile casinos in Canada.
Toy Story, a film that was released in 1995, became an instant classic, and tells the story of a group of toys that come to life when their owner isn’t around.
One of the star characters alongside was Woody was Buzz Lightyear, a Space Ranger that fought against his nemesis and endeavoured to travel the stars and save those in need. While he’s proven to be such a popular character that he’s getting his own film, one that will show how Lightyear started out as nothing more than a test pilot to become the hero that we’ve all come to adore.
While the original Avatar did get a bit of flack, mostly due to the unoriginal storytelling, but there’s no denying that the visuals were completely next generation, especially when it was viewed in 3D, and the world building was stellar.
It makes sense then that James Cameron would endeavour to make a second one, which we can expect to come out toward the end of 2022, with many of the same characters reprising their roles.
