Hollywood reporter Nikki Finke has posted a possible scoop of epic proportions. If this is true, it’s very telling of the future of the DC cinematic universe.
We know that Warner Bros Pictures is way behind Marvel Studios when it comes to making movies out of its comic book properties. But I have intel on what is coming up at this July’s Comic-Con from the studio. A lot of stuff remains in flux but my sources have so far:
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
There had been talk of a Metal Men and Suicide Squad movie for sometime in 2016 but that project fell off the schedule.
The really interesting thing about this is the inclusion of a Flash/Green Lantern: Brave and The Bold type film. It looks like they are doing things similarly to Marvel in that they will introduce characters as cameos or side characters then fleshing them out in future movies. Some on this list seem odd, but I’m curious how many of them pan out.
