The buzz cycle leading up to a movie's release can often end up more exciting and satisfying than the film itself, as fans fervently discuss all those insane, ludicrously creative and suspiciously believable rumours and fan theories.

From superhero movies to the most anticipated blockbuster sequels of the next 18 months, these are the films on everyone's lips right now, and the Internet is naturally rife with speculation about how things might end up.
