Summer popcorn movie season is fast approaching, and with that comes the inevitable: Superhero movies.

Both DC and Marvel have big films in the pipeline, ready to make their debuts in the summer months. Disney and Marvel will kick things off with a bang on May 5 with “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” the follow-up to the 2014 hit. James Gunn returns to direct, with stars including Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana also returning.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ New Trailer Offers First Look at Kurt Russell’s Character

The following month, on June 2, DC will bring Princess Diana of Themyscira to the big screen with “Wonder Woman.” Gal Gadot, who made her debut as the superhero in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” stars in the highly anticipated movie directed by Patty Jenkins.

Also on June 2, but with a very different tone, 20th Century Fox will debut “Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie,” directed by David Soren. The animated adaptation of the popular children’s books features the voices of Kevin Hart and Ed Helms.

And never count out Spidey: “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” which debuted a new trailer this week at CinemaCon, swings into theaters on July 7. Tom Holland stars as the web-slinging teenager, with Michael Keaton playing the villainous Vulture and Jon Watts directing.

    I’m so excited for Wonder Woman and Guardians of the Galaxy! I really couldn’t care less about ANOTHER spider-man movie or captain underpants.

    The comicbook fan in me is interested the most in seeing how Spider-Man will do in HOMECOMING— with SONY and DISNEY corporately holding IP hands in this movie.

    Second is the GUARDIANS VOL 2— will Gunn and company strike screen blitzkrieg twice?

    Third is the WONDER WOMAN film— being burned by the DC Films Universe, am not expecting the studio meddling ‘course correction’ will be successful.

    And I think I’m out of the target market for CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS.

    For me it’s between Captain Underpants and Guardians of the Galaxy–the nostalgia is strong with the former because those books are hilarious, and it looks very faithful to them. But the first Guardians was just an all-around terrific movie with something for everybody, so I’m definitely looking forward to the next volume there. Need some more Groot & Rocket! ^~ Wonder Woman and Spider-Man look pretty good, but I’m not very excited about them.

    There is something to be said when there’s a higher anticipation for 3rd-tier Marvel comics characters (though, I’d argue they are superstars) like “Guardians” than the Marvel superstar “Spider-Man” I’m looking forward to both. I think “Spider-Man” will surprise! ….I really hope “Wonder Woman” turns out good…………. *Fingers crossed that director Patty Jenkins got final cut AND NOT the WB suits*
