Yes, here is the next five years of the DC Comics Movie Lineup for theaters which is filled with Marvel, DC Comic Superhero, Star Wars and Hasbro movies…take a look on the flip…
Star Wars Universe has locked down December for the next six years with Star Wars and its spin offs.44 While Marvel has all the prime release dates on lock for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and now DC Comics Movie Lineup of Superheroes are filling in the rest of the year with their Universe so superhero and sci-fi geeks can be entertained every month with another franchise to follow.
We haven’t added Hasbro’s Cinematic Universe yet, that will include Transformers and other Hasbro toys or cartoons that are set to be developed into live action films. CelebNMovies247.com has the latest details and information on the DC Comics Movie Lineup via DOG.
The Suicide Squad movie boasts an impressive all-star cast. Jared Leto is playing the Joker (a difficult role to step into in the wake of Heath Ledger’s incredible performance in The Dark Knight). Then we have Adam Beach as Slipknot, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, and Jay Hernandez as El Diablo. There are loads of other supervillains making their way into this one, too. It’s a little crazy.
Warner Bros. and DC Comics have been doing everything in their power to up the Suicide Squad’s profile in recent years. With recent live-action appearances on Arrow, an animated film pairing them with Batman, and a high-profile comic book relaunch, it’s easy to see how characters like Deadshot and Harley Quinn could anchor a Suicide Squad movie. DC Entertainment loves synergy.
The fact that we have yet to see a Wonder Woman solo movie is almost beyond belief. We don’t have time to get into the rampant short-sightedness that is keeping women from taking marquee roles in superhero movies at the moment (and that’s bound to change one of these days, especially given how their fortunes have changed on TV), but just know that Gal Gadot does some serious Amazonian ass-kicking in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and then we get her solo movie on June 2nd, 2017. The movie was moved up a couple of weeks from its original release date on June 23, 2017.
Warner Bros. were clearly impressed with Ms. Gadot, as she’ll be doing Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Wonder Woman solo movie, Justice League, and Justice League 2 in a fairly short amount of time.
On Monday, actress Gal Gadot has taken to Facebook to reveal she’s wrapped shooting on the upcoming Wonder Woman solo film. The actress wrote:
“Today was my last day shooting the solo Wonder Woman movie…It’s been such an amazing, exciting, dreamy, happy and fascinating experience.”
Patty Jenkins (Monster) is directing, from a screenplay by Jason Fuchs. Chris Pine will appear as Wonder Woman’s love interest, Steve Trevor.
Zack Snyder will direct Justice League, and BvS co-writer Chris Terrio is sticking around to work on the script. Five members of the team (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, and Aquaman) will appear in Dawn of Justice, so it should be relatively easy for the filmmakers to pull double duty and a remarkably short turnaround.
This one will also introduce Aquaman’s Queen Mera (played by Amber Heard), which would make sense considering that the Aquaman movie would follow the next summer. Black Canary is another rumored possibility, as a potential set-up for a future Birds of Prey movie.
Debuting to some more than respectable numbers, The Flash TV series is a definite fan-favorite. In the past, Warner Bros has been shy about pushing multiple live-action interpretations of their characters at the same time (the success of Smallville helped hold up new Superman films for some time, while plans to introduce Bruce Wayne on that show were scuttled as Batman Begins became a reality). Clearly, that is no longer the case.
Ezra Miller (The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Madame Bovary) has been announced as the lead for a Flash solo movie. We do know that this will be a movie about Barry Allen, but probably a very different Barry Allen than the one we currently love on TV. It’s a little unclear at the moment if Flash will make his first appearance in Justice League Part One or Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, or if this film will serve as an origin story and introduction. This should become clear in coming days.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The LEGO Movie) have been brought on board to write a treatment for The Flash movie, and Seth Grahame-Smith is directing.
Finally, Warner Bros. confirmed what everyone on the planet already knew: Jason Momoa is Aquaman. There’s no doubt that they’ve been taking Aquaman very seriously.
Amber Heard will also appear as Queen Mera.
James Wan (Furious 7) will direct from a script by Kurt Johnstad (300: Rise of an Empire).
Warner Bros. promised that their superhero schedule didn’t include Batman or Superman solo films, but it didn’t rule out the possibility of them down the line. Well, it looks like “down the line” might mean 2018. Ben Affleck will direct and star in a solo Batman movie. He will also co-write the screenplay with comics scribe Geoff Johns. According to THR, Affleck has already finished the first draft of the script.
The latest unconfirmed details on this one indicate that it might be an adaptation of the Under the Red Hood story. Under the Red Hood is the story of how the second Robin, Jason Todd, returned from the dead after his murder at the hands of the Joker. Todd becomes the brutal vigilante known as the Red Hood, and it’s up to Batman and Nightwing to take him down.
We hear this will kick off a new trilogy of Batman movies. Hopefully the studio will rethink the darkness of the film and the way Affleck portrays Batman. The other question is October would be a weird place to drop a potential box office juggernaut like Batman. Maybe Justice League Dark/Dark Universe would best be suited for this release date, but we know the studio has some time to rethink this.
Shazam has both a writer (Darren Lemke, of Turbo fame) and a star (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the villainous Black Adam) announced. If we end up getting to see Henry Cavill’s Superman fight Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam, it’s tough to imagine anyone would complain.
We are hearing that Shazam may drop sooner that the announced 2019 release date, but it all depends on the studio juggling the films to make a mark at the box office and which is the best order for the films.
Justice League prologue Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice hasn’t counted a single dollar of ticket sales yet, and here we are, staring at a release date for Justice League 2. All we know at the moment is that Zack Snyder will be back as director on this one. As for the villain it would be nice to see Dr Doom introduced as a lead in for the Justice League Dark/Dark Universe, but we will keep you posted. Also we’ve noticed that Cyborg colo film comes after both Justice League films so it appears they want to develope his story before he gets a solo movie.
Warner Bros. has set a date for another untitled DC film for November 1st, 2019, according to THR. No information was given as to the story or what characters will be featured in the film. Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill recently teased that they would love to do another Superman solo film. Could this be it? It would be nice, but perhaps the Batman solo film is actually a two-parter since he will be getting a trilogy.
The other possibility is this release date could be for the Lobo movie that was revealed last month? Could the space-faring bounty hunter would certainly arrive sooner than expected, but isn’t that what bounty hunters do?
The truth is that we just don’t know what DC has planned for Nov. 2019, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
Finally the long-awaited Cyborg Ray Fisher will make his first appearance as Vic Stone/Cyborg in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and will clearly have a crucial role to play in both Justice League films if they’re grooming him for a solo film.
No other details are presently available, and there are also rumors that this one might be reworked into a movie that would introduce the Teen Titans to the big screen.
Fairly or unfairly, Green Lantern has the most working against him. The 2011 film failed to kickstart the DC Universe as planned, and received a lukewarm (at best) critical and box-office reception. There are, of course, ways around this. Many fans hated the animation of the film which we liked. However, we felt Ryan Reynolds was not the best fit as Hal Jordan and Blake Lively was blan as the heroin. The movie had potential when it came to Sinestro and the “Fear Ring”, so we hope it picks up from there.
One way is to simply not make Hal Jordan the central Green Lantern of the movie. It was revealed at SDCC 2015 that the Green Lantern movie is now called Green Lantern Corps, and this one may focus on as many as three Green Lanterns, likely with John Stewart as the main Green Lantern of Sector 2814. Tyrese Gibson might be wearing that particular ring.
We’ve heard bits and pieces indicating that Green Lantern won’t even show up until the end of Justice League, or possibly even Justice League 2. By the time 2020 rolls around, a decade will have passed, and everyone will have forgotten about the failed Green Lantern movie. We hope the casting is better this time around. And as for Tyrese, we feel they could find a better John Stewart.
We will keep you posted on the DC Comics Movie Lineup…
