If you love superhero movies, 2019 is going to be a good year. Marvel, DC and Dark Horse comics have inspired plenty of new film adaptations. Some are sequels, but many are the first installments in new blockbuster franchises.

“Glass” (Jan. 18) This is the only superhero movie not based on any existing comic books. M. Night Shyamalan’s sequel to 2000’s “Unbreakable” and 2016’s “Split” is actually a superhero story. James McAvoy’s Kevin Wendell Crumb has a superhuman personality known as The Beast, and he is being pursued by Bruce Willis’ David Dunn. Samuel L. Jackson’s Elijah Price has secrets important to both men.

“Captain Marvel” (March 8) Brie Larson stars as Carol Danvers, a human who is saved by the Kree, alien warriors. They give her unique powers, but she can’t remember her human life. Young S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) will help her search for answers while the Kree’s war with the Skrulls comes to a head. Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck direct the Marvel Studios movie, the 21st film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“Spider-Man: Far From Home” (July 5) The first post-“Endgame” movie will show Spider-Man (Tom Holland) back in action. He’ll be on a trip to Europe with his school when Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) sends him on a mission with a new hero, Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal). “Spider-Man: Homecoming” director Jon Watts returns for this Marvel Studios/Columbia Pictures movie.

“The New Mutants” (Aug. 2) Maisie Williams joins fellow “Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner in 20th Century Fox’s X-Men universe, but don’t expect Jean to save the day. Williams plays Wolfsbane, one of several teenage mutants stuck in an institution against their will. It’s up to the teenagers to find a way to save themselves in the horror film, which reportedly underwent reshoots to make it even scarier after positive reaction to the first trailer. Josh Boone directs, and Anya Taylor-Joy, Alice Braga, Charlie Heaton, Blu Hunt and Henry Zaga round out the cast.

“Joker” (Oct. 4) Joaquin Phoenix plays the famous DC comics villain in this origin story. The Warner Bros. film is not connected to the established DCEU, which includes “Suicide Squad” and “Justice League,” so it’s anyone’s guess what will happen. Todd Phillips directs.
