This new year 2022 once again promises great cinematic releases. With an ever-busy schedule for Marvel, adaptations of Mario Bros, or films in the world of casinos, we detail the most anticipated films this year.
In The World of Casinos – ‘The Card Counter’
The casino is considered one of the fanciest and funniest places you can go. It is therefore not surprising that so many great filmmakers choose to place the casino at the heart of the plot of their films. If you want to feel the excitement of the casino, you should definitely watch these movies coming out in 2022. There is also a lot of slots with casino jackpots at Genesis that allow players to experience the real-life experience and have fun which you might wanna try out. Few of them relate to Marvel’s universe, but let’s move on to the point… In Paul Schrader’s film The card counter, casino executioner Oscar Isaac embodies a methodical gambler, a former soldier guilty of unforgivable acts. Confined to prison for a decade, William enjoyed the routine and discipline there, and learned to count cards and memorize them. Once outside, he made it his job, his source of income, a professional player who earns just enough not to be noticed. Oscar Isaac embodies this William Tell, a banal and methodical man. For those that might wonder, despite being released at the end of 2021 in the United States, the movie has been launched in 2022 in many countries accross the world, that’s why it has been placed in this list.
Adaptations of Video Games to the Cinema
Video games and cinema are two industries that are now intimately linked. Several adaptations of video games in film will be released in 2022. We start this list with the sequel to the adventures of the blue hedgehog in Sonic The Hedgehog 2. The first opus, despite a complicated production and the total overhaul of the design of the hero following the anger fans, finally worked well which logically led to this sequel. In this new film, Sonic will have to face the terrible Robotnik, who this time is accompanied by Knuckles. To get by, Sonic will have great support with his new sidekick: Tails.
We find the cast of the first film with Ben Schwartz, James Marsden and Jim Carrey in the main roles, but also the arrival of Idris Elba and Colleen O’Shaughnessey who will respectively play Knuckles and Tails. Here’s another movie video game adaptation: Mario Bros. For the moment, we know very little about this new project, except that it is led by Nintendo, and that it will be an animated film. Chris Pratt will be accompanied by a high-quality cast with Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Day and even Fred Armisen. Nintendo intends to draw a line under the bitter failure of the first adaptation released in 1993, and this opus could mark the advent of Nintendo’s cinema.
Movies Based on Comics
We now move on to adaptations from comics with Marvel. We announce the upcoming release of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. On May 4, the Doctor will have to face many parallel worlds that appeared during the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home. We already know that the Scarlet Witch will also be there, and that the project is led by Sam Raimi, who finds the world of superheroes here after his cult Spider-Man trilogy from the early 2000s. This film will be followed by the Asgardian’s fourth solo chapter with Thor: Love and Thunder. Natalie Portman will be back and should acquire the powers of the Scandinavian god. Release scheduled for July 13. The new year will end with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever on November 9. We still know little about this project, but the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman who played the vigilante so far has undoubtedly greatly changed the plans of Marvel Studios. We also know that the role of Black Panther will not be taken over by any other actor.
