Summer blockbuster season is officially upon us, but what can people expect at the box office? Movie critics are predicting many of the upcoming movies being released are subpar, which might leave many people wondering which movies are worth their money.

So far fans have already seen some highly anticipated comic book movies with the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and box office duds like King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. One movie critics agree won’t leave fans disappointed is Wonder Woman which hits theaters Friday.
