2018 has some awful big shoes to fill if it wants to top 2017, but there’s plenty of things on the way this year that have me seriously hyped. From the culmination of a decade of movies, to the return of a beloved animated series, to what is one of the biggest pro wrestling events this century, 2018 is shaping up to be another fine year in the entertainment field. Below I’ve got my picks for the movie, novel, tv show, comic, video game, and sporting event that I’m most looking forward to.
I’m a Doctor Strange fan. The character has one of the most underrated backstories in Marvel lore, and I’m a sucker for any setting drenched in magic and mysticism. The new live-action movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe looks pretty darned good, and I expect a lot of movie-goers to come away with a new sense of appreciation for the character.
I have no plans to see the movie, though. The 90% Rotten Tomatoes score isn’t enticing me; even if the movie had a 100% score, I wouldn’t be shelling out any cash to watch it.
