The growing trend of turning making movies based on characters from comic books shows no sign of slowing down in 2017 with many major blockbusters planned for release in this year. There is an average of seven films being released every year at the moment. All of the major players have films coming out in 2017 and this includes the Avengers, characters from DC Comics and the X-Men. Some of the most eagerly anticipated films have been picked out below.

Justice League

There are people that find it hard to answer the question Batman Vs Superman – who will you be backing? For those who can’t choose their favorite superhero between the two the good news is that they join forces in Justice League so a choice does not have to be made. They will be joined by other DC Comics superheroes including Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Cyborg. The film is expected to follow the same sort of theme as the Avengers Assemble movie where all the characters team up to fight a super villain.


Thor: Ragnorak

Thor faces his biggest challenge yet in Ragnorak which is the apocalypse of the Gods. The film will see the fall of Asgard and show how this is dealt with by Thor. Chris Hemsworth returns to play Thor and it is expected that there will also be appearances from other Avengers and Thor’s brother Loki. Fans of 7 Sultans Online Casino will already be familiar with some of these characters if they have played the Thunderstruck slot machine.



The rumor is that this will be the last time that Hugh Jackman portrays Wolverine in a movie role. The movie is set in the future and Wolverine does look as if he has started to age so whether he has lost his immortality remains to be seen. Other favorites from the X-Men movies are also set to feature including Professor X who will be portrayed by Patrick Stewart. The villains in the film will be played by British actors Richard E. Grant and Stephen Merchant.


Spider-Man: Home Coming

This is a stand alone movie and does not follow the storylines of the films that starred Andrew Garfield. It is the result of the new collaboration between Marvel and Sony and is the first of many new Marvel movies that are expected. Instead it will focus on Peter Parker’s younger years and will follow on from the appearance of the character in Captain America: Civil War. Spider Man will again be played by Tom Holland and it will also feature Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man.

With so many movies coming out during 2017, movie fans may not feel as if they will have much time for anything else. If you are looking for a way to relax after watching these movies, then playing some comic book themed games at 7 Sultans Online Casino can be the perfect way to unwind and have fun at the same time. These movies have release dates that are spread out throughout the year and so there will be plenty to keep you entertained all year round.
