A lot of devoted fans of DC and Marvel alike have been dissapointed with the lack of confirmed DC movies in the pipeline. The only known project as of lately have been the 2016 release: “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” but alot of films have been rumored to be scheduled in the coming years. DC and Warner Brothers have now reveled parts of their upcoming movies. It’s quite impressive to be honest:
Here are the movies confirmed by WB and DC, check them out:
- Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, 25 March 2016
- The film will star Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill in the title roles as two of the most (if not the most iconic) superheroes ever. It will also introduce characters like Aquaman, Cyborg and Wonder Woman who will all appear in their own stand alone films later on.
- Suicide Squad, August 5, 2016
- “Suicide Squad” focuses on a group of rag tag villains who agree to do the hardest of missions in order to possibly gain freedom (if I understand it right). The film will be directed by David Ayer who’s most recent movie “Fury” can now be seen in cinemas. Apparently the movie is eyeing four A-list actors to star with names like Margot Robbie, Will Smith and Tom Hardy being tossed around.
- Wonder Woman, June 23, 2017
- Finaly, the single most iconic female superhero will finally grace the screen in her own stand alone movie in 2017. Gal Gadot will portray the character and she is going to be an actual demi god in this incarnation.
- Justice League Part 1, November 23, 2017
- The long awaited “Justice League” will be directed by “Man of Steel” and “BvS” helmer Zack Snyder and it will,according to Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara, “bring back the cast of Batman v Superman with a cast of other well-known and highly-anticipated superheroes.”
- The Flash,March 23 2018
- The Scarlett Speedster can be seen in his own TV-show right now where he is portrayed by Grant Gustin. The movie version of the character will however be played by Ezra Miller… Miller earned lots of acclaim for his performance in “We Need to Talk About Kevin” and he was also seen in “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”.
- Aquaman, July 27 2018
- Speaking of casting reveals, Jason Momoa is finally confirmed to play Aquaman (and he’ll appear in “BvS” as well). Momoa is mostely known for playing Khal Drogo in the massive hit series “Game of Thrones”. I really dig this casting and it will probably give some tough credibility to the often mocked, but awesome, character that is Aquaman.
- Shazam, April 5, 2019
- “Shazam” will feature everyones favorite Dwayne “The Rock” Johnsson as the baddie Black Adam. The most interesting factor about the film is however the fact that it will be distributed by the WB owned New Line Cinema as opposed to proper WB. This have lead alot of fans to specuate that the film will take place in a separate universe.
- Justice League Part 2, June 14, 2019
- The follow up to the 2017 film is currently refered to as “…Part 2” which could indicate that the movies will be split into two parts of the same story.
- Cyborg, April 3rd 2020
- Cyborg is a, well, cyborg and a fan favorite character in the Justice League. He will be played by Ray Fisher famous for his work on stage plays. He will make his first appearance in “BvS” just like Aquaman but his role will probably only expand in “JL” and this stand alone.
- Green Lantern, June 19th 2020
- This movie will be a reboot of the character that was played by Ryan Reynolds in 2011’s disappointing movie… I could see how Green Lantern could be introduced in one of the “JL” movies based on WB’s CEO’s comments.
- Solo Batman and Superman movies confirmed but no release dates
- What was lacking from this announcement was stand alone Batman and Superman movies which is kinda wierd seeing how these characters are the most famous one’s. I think DC are just saving the biggest news until some other occasion. Maybe comic-con? The films will however find their release dates somewhere between 2017 and 2020.
I am excited about this! Finally DC and WB seems to have a plan and that i something they’ve gotten a lot of flack for.
Anyhow, are you stoked for some DC films?
