The Minneapolis Movies in the Park lineup looks great again

Marvel and Star Wars headline this summer's schedule.

We're a month away from Movies in the Park starting up again in Minneapolis and the lineup is looking good.

Minneapolis Parks and Recreation has released the schedule for its free-to-attend 2018 season and it's littered with Hollywood blockbusters and family-friendly fare.

Among the after-sunset showings are several from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, perfect for those yearning for simpler times after seeing the ending of "The Avengers: Infinity War."

Included on the schedule is "Guardians of the Galaxy 2," "Thor: Ragnarok," "Spider-Man: Homecoming," and the runaway smash that is "Black Panther."

Other blockbusters on the schedule include "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" and "Wonder Woman."

There's plenty of more child-friendly movies coming too, including Pixar's "Coco," Disney's "Moana," and "Despicable Me 3."

The season kicks off with "Dodgeball" on June 4 at Bohanon Park, north Minneapolis, and concludes with "The Wizard of Oz" at Lake Harriet Park on Aug. 31.

You can find the full schedule here.
