Following BATMAN V SUPERMAN Shift, WB Announces 9 More DC Movies

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice‘s release date being changed wasn’t the only big news today. To sweeten the deal, Warner Bros has finally revealed their DC film schedule up until 2020. There are no titles, but here are the films we’ll be seeing for the next six years.


That’s at least nine DC movies, three more than the schedule Nikke Finke provided in June. There’s no word yet on what some of these films will be, although The Wrap states that the pipeline is expected to include “Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League,’ standalone spinoffs for Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, as well as a “Shazam/Black Adam” movie starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and a “Sandman” movie that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is producing and may star in.”


All of these are solid bets. Justice League is all but officially announced, Sandman already has a creative team forming, The Rock has been teasing the hell out of his Shazam-related role, Wonder Woman needed her own movie yesterday and an Aquaman solo adventure would be amazing! Other candidates for these spots could be a true Man of Steel sequel, a solo Batfleck film, and separate films for Flash and Green Lantern, unless there is some truth about the two of them teaming up in one film.


The most interesting part os this list are the entries for November 16, 2018 and November 20, 2020: “Untitled WB Event Film.” Now keep in mind that what’s listed above is the Warner Bros film schedule. Only nine of those are confirmed to be DC, so these event films may be related to another Warner Bros property, such as Harry Potter. However, the DC characters are in a league of their own (pun intended), so there’s a good chance that the event films are Justice League 1 & 2. Wait, I had an even bigger idea. What if these are Crisis films? The biggest of all the DC events! After all, if Justice League is being filmed back-to-back with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, this means we could see it as early as August 2016 or June 2017, which saves the event film for something even more epic. Mind blown!


Overall, this sounds cool, but don’t think this lets you off the hook for San Diego Comic-Con, Warner Bros. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad you showed Wonder Woman and the Batman V Superman teaser, but you couldn’t have announced ONE movie?!?!
