Biggest blockbuster movies to look forward to in 2022

It’s just been a couple of months since movie theaters reopened again in the Philippines. Hollywood blockbuster movies, which have been delayed numerous times, are slowly making their way to our cinemas.

Superheroes are back with a vengeance, with highly-anticipated Marvel and DC sequels like Doctor Strange, Black Panther, The Flash, and Batman finally returning to the big screen this year.

This past weekend kicked off with the delayed Philippine release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, which has already grossed over $1 blllion at the global box office.

New movies in big budget franchises like Mission: Impossible, Jurassic Park and the Avatar series are also making a comeback alongside long-awaited sequels to Top Gun and Indiana Jones.

It’s been tough to keep track of the constantly changing movie schedules during the pandemic, and with the Omicron surge, theatrical release dates could very well face further delays in the country.

Just recently, Morbius starring Jared Leto, which was finally supposed to be released in January was pushed back again to April.
