Made 20 years ago, the first movie in the franchise to bring the famous Marvel heroes to the screen was a landmark event and paved the way for the slew of superhero (and X-Men) movies that would follow in the decades to come.

One of the joys about streaming services is you can watch movies that you definitely would not go see when they came out in movie theaters. This 2010 title definitely fits the bill.

Jake Gyllenhaal stars in this adaptation of the popular video game franchise that was panned by critics and motivated Gyllenhaal to take on more serious roles going forward.


“Ant-Man and the Wasp” (August 14)

This sequel to the “Ant-Man” movie is filled with lots of action and comedy like the original as we follow Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) who teams with Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) to take on Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) while on house arrest due to his involvement in “Captain America: Civil War.”


“The Greatest Showman” (August 14)
