The Most Anticipated Movies for 2022


Cooper Ams, Print Editor

With the start of 2022 just passing, there are many things to look forward to, including new movies. This year, there is no doubt that there will be multiple blockbuster movies released in theaters. Here is a list of my most anticipated movies for the upcoming year!


The Batman


This is my most anticipated movie for the entire year for 2022. Starring Robert Pattison as the new Batman, this movie starts a new Batman trilogy in the DC Comics universe. This story follows Batman as he fights crime in Gotham City, facing the Riddler as his main enemy. This is the first Batman movie since the Ben Affleck phase of Batman movies, leaving many people hoping that this movie will re-establish Batman as one of the best superhero movie franchises made. While many consider The Dark Knight Trilogy as the best Batman movies and possibly the best superhero movies, I am hopeful that this movie will live up to the hype and be one of the best movies this year.



Morbius is a spinoff of the Spider-Man franchise. It focuses on Dr. Morbius, who has a rare blood disorder that is possibly fatal. In order to try to save himself, he takes desperate measures. When it seems to be a success, it quickly takes a turn for the worst, leaving others to pay for his actions.




This title is one of the most anticipated movies of the entire year, as there have been very few films that have this type of story line. Starring Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg, this movie is based on the storyline of the Uncharted video game. The movie follows the adventures of Drake, a young thief, and his first encounter with Sullivan, a professional rogue.   


Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore


My next movie is Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore. This is the second sequel to the movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. A spinoff of the Harry Potter series, this movie follows the adventures of Newt Scamander, who is asked by Professor Dumbledore to stop the dark wizard, Gellert Grindelwald, from seizing control of the wizarding world.


Jurassic World Dominion


Hopefully, this title is familiar to most people, as it is considered to be a classic movie franchise. Starring Chris Pratt, this movie, a sequel to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, follows those in charge of returning the dinosaurs to their captive habitats after they escaped into the wild at the end of the previous movie.


Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness


This film marks the return of Dr. Strange to the big screen for his own movie, rather than being a supporting character in Spiderman or Avengers movies. Marvel is taking a different approach with this movie, however, as it is supposed to be Marvel’s first attempt at a horror movie. In this possible horror movie, Dr. Strange teams up with Scarlet Witch to defend the multiverse in an action packed adventure.


Top Gun: Maverick


My final film on the list is the long awaited sequel to one of the most successful films of the late 1980s, Top Gun. Starring Tom Cruise, this movie follows Maverick (Tom Cruise) along as he returns to be an instructor for future fighter pilots and to relive his glory days in the Top Gun program. 


I hope you found some movies on this list that you maybe had not heard of before, but are interested in now!
