The Super Sequels coming soon

The Super Sequels coming soon
By Alexander Aucott

<p>Looking at Hollywood offerings there are three films in the pipeline which are part of huge franchises.</p> <p>To begin with the new trailer for ‘Batman v Superman’ has just been released.</p> <p>The Zack Snyder film stars Henry Cavill as Superman as he again takes on the roll he played in Man of Steel in 2013.</p> <p>Meanwhile it is Ben Affleck who is to don the bat-suit. </p> <p>This comes despite starring in the flop Daredevil after which he stated.</p> <p>“By playing a superhero in Daredevil, I have inoculated myself from ever playing another superhero. Wearing a costume was a source of humiliation for me and something I wouldn’t want to do again soon.”</p> <p>It would seem that he had a change of heart.</p> <p>All that can be gleaned about the story so far is that Superman is a polarising figure with some considering him a god while others fear him.</p> <p>Meanwhile it seems that Bruce Wayne is to be a dark character in this installment.</p> <p>Those looking forward to seeing this one don’t hold your breath however as it’s not due out until summer 2016.</p> <p><strong>Jurassic World</strong></p> <p>Coming to a multiplex near you a little sooner is the latest in the Jurassic Park series, Jurassic World.</p> <p>In the original 1993 blockbuster John Hammond dreams of creating a theme park with real dinosaurs with the T-Rex as the centrepiece.</p> <p>In the new installment we go to the park 22-years later and his dream has become a reality.</p> <p>For the last 10 years the park has been run successfully but as interest begins to wane the scientists decide to entice them back by creating a hybrid dinosaur.</p> <p>While this has the desired effect they soon realise they’ve created a monster that puts everyone in danger.</p> <p>Jurassic World is set for release on June 12, 2015.</p> <p><strong>Independence Day 2</strong></p> <p>And last but not least is a sequel to the 1996 smash hit Independence Day.</p> <p>The original was the second highest grossing film ever when it came out and now the same director Roland Emmerich will helm this follow up. </p> <p>Little is known of the story so far as it is only due to start shooting next month.</p> <p>We do know it will star Liam Hemsworth however and Jeff Goldblum and Brent Spiner will reprise their roles, though there is no mention of Will Smith as yet.</p>
