WB Announces Ten Tentpole DC Movies!!!!!
By Dr. Know on October 15th, 2014
Well, the gloves are off! Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have finally show up for the fight with Marvel – the WB brass dropped a bomb this morning at a shareholder meeting, announcing 10 tentpole DC movies within the next six years!
So which characters made the grade? Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice will lead the charge, of course, with Suicide Squad, directed by David Ayer, and Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot following(I wonder if they’ll mine the defunct Joss Whedon script?). And following this (dramatic pause) Justice League will hit theatres.
In 2018, DC fans will be introduced to two new cinematic superheroes: Ezra Miller will star in The Flash and Game of Thrones‘ Jason Momoa will headline Aquaman.
Following this, Shazam is scheduled for 2019 starring The Rock as Black Adam. Justice League 2 will also arrive that year from director Zack Snyder. Cyborg, a member of the Justice League in the comics, will get his own show in 2020 with newcomer Ray Fisher starring. And finally, a Green Lantern film is in the works for 2020. Just don’t expect Ryan Reynolds to return as Hal Jordan.
Get ready for a fight, Marvel! It’s been a long time coming…but it’s coming! I just hope hell isn’t following with it!
