Comic book movies don't seem to be slowing down any time soon, and while summer has classically been the best time for superheroes, we're starting the season early in 2017. We've got a big week ahead of us this time around, with Wolverine's curtain call, a teenage Groundhog Day, and an international best-seller hitting the screens. Get ready for Logan, The Shack and Before I Fall. It's gonna be a Rotten Week!

Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer. Let's take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer.

Rotten Watch Prediction

As we've seen in the not-so-distant past, it isn't easy pulling off the superhero/comic book movie. There's a whole host of issues movie-makers run into adapting fantastical characters to the big screen in a "realistic" way - particularly when the idea behind the movie is to make it dark and gritty. It's a tight rope for sure, but if Logan reviews are any indication (CB's Sean O'Connell gave it five stars in his review), then Hugh Jackman and James Mangold have pulled off what so many others tried and failed to do: they've made a nearly perfect comic book movie.

In the last chapter of the Hugh Jackman-led Wolverine franchise, we find an aging Logan in one last mission, helping a young girl avoid her captors and get to safety. Director James Mangold helmed the second movie in the franchise, The Wolverine (69%) to decent results. He's also given us 3:10 to Yuma (89%) and Walk the Line (82%). This likely ends up his best-reviewed movie yet. It's sitting at 96% through about 80 reviews right now, with critics lauding it for going beyond the superhero genre as it works independent of fandom. Jackman's Logan/Wolverine has always been the lynchpin in the X-Men franchise and seeing him sent off properly feels good.
