2020 is year and with it comes another promising year of films. I’m particularly excited since there are a great number of women-led films both in front of and behind the camera in 2020. Since it’s early in the year, none of the smaller, independent films are really known until the Sundance Film Festival later this month, so this list will mainly be bigger films. I will also do a Top 10 of 2019 list, but that won’t be up until I have seen 1917, which is a major awards contender this year.

So here is what I’m most looking forward to at the moment for the upcoming year with some honorable mentions that go out to Godzilla vs. Kong, Eternals, and Bob’s Burgers who didn’t quite make the list.

Captain Marvel centers around Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) a Kree soldier who ends up on Earth to stop the villainous skrulls – a race of alien shapeshifters. She must work with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and an old friend named Maria (Lashana Lynch) to find out what her past is.

This film has a ton of controversy over it which isn’t rare for comic book movies, mainly from fanboys who aren’t a fan of Brie Larson or don’t want to see a female superhero on screen, but I think it’s safe to say to Captain Marvel beat the odds. It’s enjoyable, and while it may not be the best MCU film, I think it’s definitely worth checking out.
