'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'
Release date: April 4
Why it's a sequel we want: We know that '14 and '15 will bring a glut of superhero sequels, but "The Winter Soldier" so far looks more like a dark conspiracy thriller peppered with gritty action than a standard Marvel Universe fantasy. It also appears as if the sequel will shake up said Universe quite a bit. The enviable cast includes returning stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan and Samuel L. Jackson, plus notable newcomers Anthony Mackie and Robert Redford.
