Everything old is new again this summer, as many familiar characters and beloved titles — some more than 50 years old — return to the big screen.
That means superheroes, of course, and summer officially began with the second “Avengers” film (opened on May 1 and is still in theaters) and continues with “Ant-Man” and “Fantastic Four.” We’ll also see sequels to Seth MacFarlane’s “Ted” and the Channing Tatum vehicle “Magic Mike.” Steven Spielberg’s “Jurassic Park” will get a new sequel.
