Ever since DC and Warner Bros. announced a Batman vs. Superman movie, we've all wondered how they'd handle constructing this cinematic universe. Marvel Studios has a big lead on them, but that's by no means stopping them from bringing their big two front and center and then following-up with a Justice League movie. But what else do they have planned? According to Nikki Finke, they're going to make some HUGE announcements at Comic-Con. Her sources say "a lot of stuff remains in flux" but this is what DC's future on the big screen apparently looks like.
May 2016 – Batman v Superman
July 2016 – Shazam
Xmas 2016 – Sandman
May 2017 – Justice League
July 2017 – Wonder Woman
Xmas 2017 – Flash and Green Lantern team-up
May 2018 – Man Of Steel 2
If that turns out to be true, 2017 is going to be pretty exciting! Additionally, her sources say that Metal Men and Suicide Squad had potential for 2016 but those projects didn't stick. As for why Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice was delayed, Finke says it's because they're going to fill the movie with cameos in order to help prepare for Justice League.
“Like Marvel’s The Avengers, there will be cameos of superheroes for future installments. The cameos will include the already known Cyborg and Flash. Green Lantern [not played by Ryan Reynolds, thank god] may be introduced. And Aquaman will be seen in the Justice League movie. Problem is, Warner Bros Pictures was still negotiating with the actors for those cameos and future roles, meaning major contracts for multiple JL/character films to follow. The studio didn’t want to move forward until they had more of this secure so they held off starting production for a few months. Seemingly simple reason, but the implications are pretty darn huge.”
Sure, only time will tell if this pans out, but what do you think of all this, Viners? Is there anything up there that really gets you stoked? Speak your mind below!
