It’s a ‘super’ time for Hollywood, literally. Many of the superheroes that you might have seen on the big screen off late, are ready to make a second appearance, telling a fresh story and battling new villains. The coming months will see a slew of superhero films, which will continue the narrative established in their first outings.

Franchises are about moving the stories forward and this set of films will further the plot, with characters going back in time to realise their past, fighting their own generated enemies or even taking the help of an evil half brother — this will be the case of Thor, who will be leading the onslaught of these flicks with Thor 2 in November 2013.

He’ll be followed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier (April 2014), The Amazing Spider-man 2 (May 2014), X Men: Days of Future Past (May 2014) and The Avengers: Age of Ultron in May 2015.

Captain America 2
Subtitled, The Winter Soldier, this film is more or less a S.H.I.E.L.D. movie, as Captain America Steve Rogers will be shown working for the organisation. The film will see Steve facing off against his former friend Bucky Barnes, who’s known as the winter soldier.

Amazing Spider-Man 2
The followup to The Amazing Spider-Man will see actor Jamie Foxx as the fan favourite villain Electro. Apart from featuring another antagonist in the form of the Rhino (played by Paul Giamatti), the film will also introduce the character of Harry Osborn.

X Men: Days of future Past
A sequel to the X Men: First Class (2011), as well as X Men: The Last Stand (2006), Days of Future Past will see Wolverine travel back in time to 1973, in order to save the future of the mutants.

Thor 2
Set one year after the events in the Avengers, Thor: The Dark World will see Thor taking the help of his half brother Loki to save the nine realms from an ancient race led by Malekith. The film will also see the demi-god reuniting with his lost love Jane Foster, who he takes to Asgard with him.

The Avengers 2
The next outing of the team-up of the Marvel superheroes (minus Spider-Man) will revolve around a robot known as Ultron going rogue and battling the Avengers. Starring actors Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and Mark Ruffalo, the film is set to release in May 2015.
