Comic Books Made Into Movies for Summer 2017

As a kid, I would run to the corner store and buy my favorite comic book – anything Archie!  I know it’s corny, but you know I’m a nerdy geek…right?!

Well, this summer has proven to be a comic book smorgasbord when it comes to summer releases.  A brand new trailer was revealed last night for the new Wonder Woman on the MTV Movie Awards, but here are  sneak previews to a few others on the sked.  But, of course, for those who missed the Wonder Woman trailer…don’t worry I got you!

Synopsis:  Before she was Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, Diana meets an American pilot (Chris Pine) who tells her about the massive conflict that’s raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny.
