DC And Warner Bros. Confirm Their Superhero Lineup
Not to be outdone by Marvel Studios announcement that Iron Man will be appearing in Captain America 3, and that the studio may well be adapting their own Civil War story for the big screen. DC have announced their slate of films up until 2020.
Just a few months ago, DC and Warner Bros. announced a list of release dates, but failed to tell people what would be coming out on those dates. Fortunately, at a recent shareholders meeting, Warner Bros. chairman Kevin Tsujihara announced what films would be released, as well as confirming directors and actors for some of the films mentioned.
The new release dates are as follows:
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. This will be directed by Zack Snyder and will star Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams.
Suicide Squad. No stars are yet attached but rumours are already online regarding Will Smith, Ryan Gosling, Tom Hardy and Margot Robbie. Suicide Squad will be directed by David Ayer (Fury).
Wonder Woman. The film will star Gal Gadot in the lead role.
Justice League: Part One. Again, to be directed by Zack Snyder, with the cast from Dawn of Justice returning.
The Flash. This will not be related to the TV show of the same name, but will instead star Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash.
Aquaman. Jason Momoa has now been confirmed to play Aquaman in both Dawn of Justice and his own spin-off film and will also be a part of the Justice League films.
Shazam. This film will see Dwayne Johnson star as the villainous Black Adam.
Justice League: Part Two. Once more, directed by Zack Snyder.
It has also been confirmed that Ray Fisher will be playing Cyborg for DC, and as well as having a part in both Dawn of Justice and the Justice League films, he could get his own film in 2020. Meanwhile it has also been rumoured that DC wish to reboot the Green Lantern and he too may well get his own film in 2020. It is also stated that both Superman and Batman will receive further solo adventures at some point, but no release date has been confirmed for either of these films yet.
