Wonder Woman is one of (if not the only) female superhero to have a movie solely focused on herself. Although the character has been around since 1941 it is only just now becoming a live-action film. This movie is exciting because it gives young girls the chance to have a strong, powerful role model, the way young boys do. The Wonder Woman movie revolves around the heroine finding her way after leaving her home as she begins to fight in the world war. The movie will also give a thorough explanation of her backstory to make it easily understood by the entire audience. Actors featured in this film include: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, and David Thewlis.

Tom Holland was introduced as the new Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War and this movie continues with his life after. When he returns home he tries to go back to a normal life but becomes distracted and his new persona starts to occupy him.
