ENT News: Move over Marvel, DC is Here

batman-v-superman-ben-affleck-as-batman-gal-gadot-as-wonder-woman-henry-cavill-as-superman-batman-vs-superman-dawn-of-justice-what-s-goMarvel officially has some competition and it time to battle it out. Today Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tuijihara announced the studio’s plans for its DC Entertainment properties this morning, naming ten DC movies between 2016 and 2020.
The first showdown was supposed to take place in May of 2016 when Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was to take on Marvel’s Captain America 3. But this competition was axed because DC moved the new superhero movie. In August announced dates for nine untitled DC releases for those years. Some of the projects had been rumored and quasi-announced (Dwayne Johnson confirmed the existence of a Shazam project when he announced that he would be playing Black Adam last month, for example), but today’s announcement is the first time all 10 movies have been named.
Those 10 DC movies named are:
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice directed by Zack Snyder (2016)
Suicide Squad directed by David Ayer (2016)
Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot (2017)
Justice League Part One directed by Snyder, with Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams reprising their roles (2017)
The Flash starring Ezra Miller (2018)
Aquaman starring Jason Momoa (2018)
Shazam (2019)
Justice League Part Two directed by Zack Snyder (2019)
Cyborg starring Ray Fisher (2020)
Green Lantern (2020)
According to THR, In a press release following Tuijhara’s announcement, Warners noted that the DC slate consisted of “at least” these 10 movies, “as well as standalone Batman and Superman films.” It’s worth noting that each of the solo movies feature characters who are currently members of the comic book incarnation of the Justice League, although whether or not the same will be true in their movie incarnations remains unknown (For example, Gal Gadot isn’t listed as appearing in the Justice League movie, interestingly enough, but Amy Adams’ Lois Lane is).
Stay tuned.
