2018 is about to close and there’s still so much good movies to see. Here are the ones you shouldn’t even dare miss.
There has been three versions of Peter Parker/Spiderman on the silver screen but we’ve never seen Miles Morales, the Afro-Latino teenager who takes on the role of Spiderman after Parker’s death. In this animated film, produced by the Lego Movie and Jump Street’s Phil Lord and Chris Miller, New York City gets a visually experimental make-over. Their film tells the classic comic book story of Spider-Man crossing over parallel dimensions and teaming up with other Spidermen, to stop a threat to all reality.

It is Aquaman’s turn to have his own solo film. After appearing in DC’s “Justice League” movie released last year, the undersea superhero, the kind that talks to fish, finally gets his origin film. The child of a human and an Atlantean, he’s caught between the sides of his heritage when surface-dwellers and his underwater kingdom go to war.
