Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara revealed Wednesday the current planned film slate for DC Comics-based properties, which includes “at least” 10 films spread through 2020. The full list from Warner Bros. is below:
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” directed by Zack Snyder (2016)
“Suicide Squad,” directed by David Ayer (2016)
“Wonder Woman,” starring Gal Gadot (2017)
“Justice League Part One,” directed by Zack Snyder, with Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams reprising their roles (2017)
“The Flash,” starring Ezra Miller (2018)
“Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa (2018)
“Justice League Part Two,” directed by Zack Snyder (2019)
“Cyborg,” starring Ray Fisher (2020)
“Green Lantern” (2020)
It’s somewhat surprising that no Batman solo film was announced. But maybe that’s for the best, since the Dark Knight trilogy is still so fresh in everyone’s mind. The Justice League movie will be directed by Zack Snyder and broken into two parts with the first being released in 2017 and the second 2019.
UPDATE: I take it back, it seems the studio will release a currently unscheduled standalone Batman film in the same period. As well as a Superman solo film.
I think “Suicide Squad,” “Aquaman,” and “Cyborg” are the biggest wildcards. But the best news of all? The new Green Lantern film will be a reboot. Sorry Ryan Reynolds.
Ten movies, wow, that is a lot of comic book movies in a four-year span. It’s a pretty ambitious schedule for Warner Bros., but they need to do something to get Marvel off the front page. And I think they just did.
