In June, those freaky mutants return in X-Men: First Class and ‘sexiest man alive’ Ryan Reynolds steps into the ring as The Green Lantern. That’s followed by Captain America in July.

For a different kind of hero check out Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson’s long-awaited collaboration The Adventures Of Tin Tin: Secret Of The Unicorn in December.

Harry Potter works his magic for the final time in July with the Deathly Hallows 2, while The Thing (April) and Footloose (October) are being both being ‘re-imagined’.
