Glass

♣♣♣♣/♣♣♣♣♣

Dr. Ellie Staple (Sarah Paulson) introduces herself as a psychiatrist specializing in patients with delusions of grandeur. Among her patients are: David Dunn (Bruce Willis), the lone survivor of a train wreck years ago who believes that he has superhuman strength; Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy), a former zoo employee who has 23 different personalities which include a diabolic supernatural creature known as The Beast; and Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson), a super intelligent comic book enthusiast with brittle bones who refers to himself as Mr. Glass. As the three are taken in for custody in a psychiatric ward after years of pursuing their own destinies in line with their own beliefs, the three are bound to be convinced that they are indeed not super at all, but rather suffering from different mental illnesses that lead them to believe so. Or are they, indeed, super and is Dr. Staple the one hiding something up her sleeves?

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

♣♣♣♣♣/♣♣♣♣♣

Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) is bitten by a radioactive spider and starts adjusting to his new powers. Soon enough, he witnesses a confrontation between Wilson Fisk (Liev Schreiber) and Spider-Man. After foiling his plan to fuse parallel universes using a super collider in order to bring his wife and son back from the dead, the Kingpin corners Peter Parker (Chris Pine) and deals him a lethal blow. The young hero’s death is met with trepidation by the people of New York, but they are not quite prepared for what is to come, as a system glitch in the collider causes a ripple spanning different realities. It doesn’t take long before different iterations of Spider-Man are yanked from their respective dimensions into Morales’ own, namely: Peter B. Parker (Jake Johnson); Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld); Spider-Ham (John Mulaney); Spider-Man Noir (Nicolas Cage); and SP//dr (Kimiko Glenn). Unprepared for the inter-dimensional dilemma facing them, Miles must step up to save not just his world, but every other parallel one as well.

Aquaman

♣♣♣♣/♣♣♣♣♣

Escaping from an arranged marriage down under, Atlanna (Nicole Kidman) is washed ashore into the arms of a mortal man. Years later she bears a son, but the ghosts of her past come back to catch up with her. Growing up without a mother, Arthur (Jason Momoa) has always despised his Atlantean heritage, which also explains his reluctance to help Mera (Amber Heard). Betrothed to his half-brother, King Orm (Patrick Wilson), she warns of an impending war between land and sea. She also believes that the only way to prevent such catastrophic event is for Arthur to retrieve legendary King Atlan’s trident and usurp the throne, but he just isn’t sold to the idea of serving a kingdom responsible for his separation with his mother. When his father’s life is put in danger, he finally comes to his senses and decides to claim his birthright, but can he really defeat an incumbent monarch who trained his whole life to be Ocean Master?
