According to Variety, Warner Bros. announced dates for 9 upcoming films based on DC Entertainment comic characters and properties from 2016-2020.. Marvel Studios recently did the same thing for five films up until 2019. In addition, Warner Bros has pushed back the release date of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice to March 25th, 2016 from May. Originally, the film was going to go head-to-head Captain America 3.

This six year plan is really about getting as many of DC's iconic characters onto the big screen, while working with Diane Nelson, who worked on the "Harry Potter" franchise. There are currently plans for a Man of Steel sequel, a Justice League film, and a solo Wonder Woman film. In addition, a film based on the Vertigo series SANDMAN, by Neil Gaiman is also in the works.

The kick off to this large wave of DC based films starts March 25th with Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Here are the upcoming release dates for the unnamed DC movies:

Aug. 5, 2016: Untitled DC Film

June 23, 2017: Untitled DC Film

Nov. 17, 2017: Untitled DC Film

March 23, 2018: Untitled DC Film

July 27, 2018: Untitled DC Film

April 5, 2019: Untitled DC Film

June 14, 2019: Untitled DC Film

April 3, 2020: Untitled DC Film

June 19, 2020: Untitled DC Film

More info on these films as it develops.

I'm excited. I have faith in WB/DC and I believe 100% that they will deliver on a great DCU.

all I want is a badass Green Arrow film starring Aaron Eckart.

All tied together please, no Shazam that's not connected, don't make Sandman part of these dates, you do that we could wait 2 years between a cinematic universe film, and I'm tired of waiting!

Please for the love of god NO CAPTAIN MARVEL MOVIE! It would be a complete train wreck with so many things that could go wrong. Make a Captain Atom movie, a Hawkman movie, or a Cyborg movie. Any of those would be awesome.

This is always the most boring news. "Hey, WB will release movies with DC characters over the next 6 years." Cool.

@paul2814: If they did make a Captain Marvel movie (which I hope they don't) I would at least want it not to connect. Look at Thor, they had to take away a lot of the Sword and Sorcery to make that film work. Sometimes it's better for some films not to connect.

Wow, that's roughly in a four year span, DC are really trying to make up for lost time.

I wonder if it's like Marvel's where the last date is usually the team's (JL) sequel. If so, that's a lot of solos and I'd approve.

Lets see Justice League, Batman, Batman 2, Batman 3, Nightwing, Batman vs Superman 2, MOS 2, MOS 3, some other DC movie that WB has little to no confidence in. There are my predictions.

Also I really wanted Batman v. Superman on the same day as cap 3. The fanboys would have gone bananas

@captainmarvel4ever: I'm all for DC making movies that don't connect, I just hope they aren't intended for these dates. A universe needs to be built, and 2 movies a year would be very nice, but for example having the August 2016 and June 2017 dates as non connected films would just be a kick in the teeth.

And it's looking very likely that a Captain Marvel movie will be made, unfortunately.

We already know some of these films are going to be Vertigo movies, meaning that already we're not hiving some of them connect.

We may not, keep in mind they planned a movie a few years ago, even casting the characters and picking the production staff, but it never happened.

What's wrong a Captain Marvel movie? No doubt the ideal choices would be Miller and Lord.

Oh wait, that's right it doesn't fit with the dark and gritty DC films that their trying to go for. No real humor people.

In other news, DC pushes back Batman vs Superman : Dawn of Justice to avoid competition from Captain America 3. When asked what he thought when it came to winning the battle of the release date. Steve Rogers only had this to say....

Well said Cap.

@captainmarvel4ever: Well the proposed leaked slate of films stated 3 movies a year before, so this may be wrong.

If they actually get 6 out of these 9 films out by the end of 2020 I'll be impressed. Marvel has proven now they have a good grasp on what they are doing with the films. I don't want WB/DC to feel like they need to play catchup and start shoveling out poorly planned, casted, directed movies. All I really want for them, or any comic based movie, is to be entertaining without destroying the character(s).

here come Marvel Fanboys trying to bring the fun down. WB moved because it was the smartest thing to do for them. going head to head with Cap 3 would have been financial suicide for both sides. Now BvsS will make a billion instead of settling for less.

@paul2814: I doubt that's real, especially since WB released a statement saying that they were working on 100 Bullets, and somone online said that list was extremely unrealistic.

I've seen plenty, their retarded heads don't look to any reasoning why the date moved forward.

Honestly I'm happy that now both sides will be financially successful. I just thought that picture summed up the situation perfectly, in an almost humorous way. I like both Marvel and DC, I could never pick a side.

Why wouldnt a Shazam movie work ? The Rock is attached and hes a pretty popular box office draw. Shazam and Black Adam are cooler than superman and ??? Whoever else. People want to say DC is too gritty for Shazam or a light hearted character but people said the exact opposite with Marvel and they did a great job with Cap 2.

Nice. Can't wait for titles. I hope that they don't struggle to make everything interconnect. Not all of their movies need to take place in the same universe. That's one of the biggest flaws with the current animated films, I think.

Biting off more than they can chew.

They should take it slow and do it right, rather than rush out bullsh...........

Quality beats quantity. 'The Dark Knight', 'Flash Point Paradox', And 'Under The Red Hood' proved that.
