Director: Gary Dauberman (Annabelle Comes Home)
Why we’re excited: The writer of the Conjuring movies definitely knows horror, so we’re not surprised to see him take on one of Stephen King’s best and most well-known novels. When a writer returns to his hometown of Jerusalem’s Lot, he discovers that its residents live under the cloak of a sinister vampire force.
4. Black Adam
Release date: October 21 in theaters
Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Pierce Brosnan, Sarah Shahi, Aldis Hodge, Noah Centineo
Director: Jaume Collet-Serra
Why we’re excited: Not to be outdone by the heroic Shazam, the anti-hero Black Adam is getting his very own spinoff. First, a comic book villain, Black Adam, with his abilities centered around ancient Egyptian mythology, is now more concerned with clearing his name.
Release date: November 11 in theaters
Cast: Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman
Director: Ryan Coogler (Black Panther)
Why we’re excited: With the first Black Panther, director Ryan Coogler, along with the film’s talented cast and crew, reinvented and expanded what a “Marvel movie” could be. Coming so soon after star Chadwick Boseman’s tragic death, this sequel will not change the lead role, which presents a number of creative challenges. What’s a Black Panther movie without Boseman? That is the question that Wakanda Forever will inevitably try to wrestle with.
