16 Upcoming DC Movies That Are Going To Blow Everyone Away


The DC Extended Universe might be struggling
to find some critical success, but its movies are still making a lot of money. And Warner Bros. has more than a dozen — 16,
actually, for those keeping count — in various stages of development right now. So what do fans have to look forward to over
the next five or so years? Let’s crack the cover and find out. Wonder Woman It’s been a long road, but director Patty
Jenkins’ Wonder Woman movie is set to finish a journey that many fans never thought would
arrive in theaters in June 2017. DC’s biggest female hero is long overdue for
her solo shot at big screen glory. Thankfully, the early trailers from the film
look fantastic, and Gal Gadot’s take on Diana was one of the best things about Batman v
Superman: Dawn of Justice. So, there’s something to build on. But there’s been a cloud of negative buzz
surrounding the project, with some supposed insiders claiming it’s a mess. For the sake of DC, and Wonder Woman fans
everywhere, we hope those rumors are far from the truth. Justice League Zack Snyder’s Justice League, set to hit theaters
in November, 2017, picks up in the wake of Batman v Superman, and is reportedly having
its tone heavily retooled on the fly after all the negative buzz from Batman v Superman’s
overly grim tone. It’ll apparently follow Batman and Wonder
Woman as they look to assemble a team of heroes to pick up the slack following Superman’s
apparent “death” at the end of that film. Considering it’s not the Justice League without
Superman, we’d think it’ll also feature that guy’s resurrection, too. Aquaman He’s been the butt of jokes for years, but
James Wan’s December 2018 Aquaman film looks to finally bring some respect to the man who
talks to fish. Casting burly Game of Thrones alum Jason Momoa
in the title role didn’t hurt much, either. The film will reportedly feature the classic
comic character Black Manta as the central villain, and introduce audiences at large
to the wider world of Atlantis and the undersea kingdom’s culture. It’s a risky venture, but having Furious 7
director James Wan at the helm means if nothing else, the action should at least be up to
snuff. Shazam! Warner Bros. has been prepping a Shazam! movie
for awhile now, and all we really know is that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is attached
to play the villain, Black Adam. Outside of that, there hasn’t really been
a lot of momentum. We don’t know a lot about the story, and the
filmmakers have been coy about just how much it will, or won’t, connect to the DCEU at
large. Outside of Johnson and a projected release
date of April, 2019, there’s been no word on casting — like who will play teenager
Billy Batson or his super-powered alter ego. Whoever it is, the pressure will be on to
actually match up against Johnson as the big bad. Green Lantern Corps No casting has been announced for this film
about superpowered space cops, but the studio is actively working this one behind the scenes,
with a script from David Goyer and Justin Rhodes on the way. Despite the fact that it’s three years out,
Warner Bros. is bullish, with a release date of July 2020 already locked. No word on the plot, but it’s been described
as “Lethal Weapon in space.” Which, you know, sounds pretty much perfect. We also know it’ll focus on two different
characters: the popular Green Lantern characters Hal Jordan, who was previously played by Ryan
Reynolds, and John Stewart. Bringing Stewart is a wise move. He’s a fan favorite, and getting him in the
mix will help this film stand apart from the previous, critically panned Green Lantern
flick. Hey, it can’t really be worse, right? “Yeah, that part I heard about.” The Flash Pretty much the only thing we know about DC’s
Flash feature set for 2020 is that it’ll star Ezra Miller as the big-screen Barry Allen. Aside from that, everything is in flux. Director Rick Famuyiwa was originally attached,
but he left the project in late 2016 due to creative differences. It’s been months, and, as of the making of
this video, the studio is still looking to fill the directorial void. Considering all the creative problems DC has
had behind the scenes, the split from Famuyiwa isn’t a great sign, but, Warner Bros. looks
to be taking its time to try and get this one right, which is smart. As the CW’s hit Flash series has proven, there’s
an audience out there that loves this character. The pressure is on to get them out from in
front of their TVs, and into theaters. Cyborg By the time Cyborg shows up in his solo movie,
fans should be pretty familiar with him. Ray Fisher’s version of the character will
have co-starring roles in Justice League and The Flash, and as much as Warner Bros. loves
cameos, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him pop up elsewhere, too. We already got a fleeting glimpse at Cyborg
thanks to those handy Lex Luthor YouTube videos in Batman v Superman. But we’ll presumably learn more about him
over the next few films. Since the character will have been thoroughly
introduced by the time this one rolls around, it stands to reason it probably won’t be an
origin story. Or if it is, at least it won’t be the entire
focus of the story. The Batman Batman is easily the cash cow of the DC universe,
and Warner Bros. seems keen to get a standalone movie made starring Ben Affleck as the new
version of the Dark Knight. Affleck has been developing the project for
awhile, but it was recently announced he wouldn’t be directing. Instead, he’ll be focusing on his work in
front of the camera. By moving Affleck out of the director’s chair
and hiring Matt Reeves, it seems the studio might be trying to get the project made sooner
than later. Meanwhile, Affleck has said numerous times
that he wasn’t in a huge hurry to get it done. Little is known about the project, aside from
the fact that it’ll likely feature Joe Manganiello as key villain Deathstroke. But, with the project getting a revamp, who
knows if Deathstroke will even survive the rewrites? Dark Universe Sometimes known as Justice League Dark during
development, this project is set to focus on the mystical side of the DCEU, featuring
characters such as John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, and Zatanna. Edge of Tomorrow’s Doug Liman signed on to
direct in 2016, though there hasn’t been much information since then. Considering the success Marvel had with Doctor
Strange, it stands to reason Warner Bros. will be keen to get this one off the bench
soon. Hopefully they’ll tap Matt Ryan play John
Constantine on the big screen, because let’s be honest — the dude is perfect. Gotham City Sirens David Ayer’s follow-up to Suicide Squad looks
to be this Harley Quinn-centric spinoff, as opposed to a straight-up sequel. Ayer is set to reteam with Margot Robbie for
the film, which will focus on Harley Quinn and several other female heroes and villains
across the DC Comics canon. No word on which characters will show up,
though ladies like Catwoman and Poison Ivy seem likely. Between this and the Wonder Woman movie, DC
has an excellent opportunity take the edge over Marvel Studios in female-led superhero
fare, which could be a huge move for a studio playing catch-up. The movies just, you know, need to be good. Justice League 2 Warner Bros. originally penciled this one
in for 2019, but it’s since been bumped to an unspecified date to clear out some space
for The Batman. This one might not be locked in anywhere at
the moment, but of all the projects at the far end of DC’s master plan, it stands to
reason another Justice League is one of the most bankable. The Avengers has become a flagship franchise
for Marvel, and DC is looking to leverage Justice League the same way. Of course, there are a lot of standalone movies
and spinoffs to make in the meantime. Man of Steel 2 All logic points to Superman featuring in
the Justice League film in some way, but despite Man of Steel formally kicking off this shared
cinematic universe, the studio doesn’t seem to be in a major hurry to give him another
solo adventure. The cast has confirmed a script is in the
works, but with so many other movies on the docket, you have to think it could be years
until they actually get around to making this one. There’s also the questions of how DC wants
to treat the character in the long term, and whether or not they’ve learned anything from
the Hulk over at Marvel. Both are insanely powerful characters, and
both typically work a bit better in an ensemble. Much like Marvel pulls Hulk out to play in
the big movies, DC could follow the same playbook with Superman. Suicide Squad 2 A proper Suicide Squad sequel is in development,
but there’s been no word on when it’ll actually hit the big screen. Despite anemic reviews, the first film still
made a whole lot of money — and introduced characters like Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn,
and Will Smith’s Deadshot, both of whom will almost certainly pop back up in the DCEU down
the line. Suicide Squad is a semi-proven commodity within
the universe, which is significant. But with Warner Bros. high on getting Gotham
City Sirens off the ground, this one could stay on the back burner for awhile. Deadshot Will Smith is one of Hollywood’s biggest stars,
so it’s no surprise Warner Bros. is looking to spin him off with a film focused on his
Suicide Squad character Deadshot. Outside of Ben Affleck, Smith is arguably
the biggest star in the DCEU — so it’s only a matter of time until they get him suited
back up for another fight against Batman. At this point, the project seems to be in
very early development, and there’s no word on where it might eventually fit in the overall
schedule. Black Adam This one has everyone a bit confused. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been attached
to co-star in a Shazam movie for years, playing the villain Black Adam. And we recently heard Warner Bros. is now
developing a full-fledged Black Adam spinoff film, which will split the character off into
more of an antihero. Johnson explained the plans to reporters: “We’re building our world that way, and then
we can come together at some point.” It remains to be seen how DC will juggle a
two-pronged side section of the DCEU while they’re still trying to establish the main
universe. Lobo Word leaked in 2016 that Warner Bros. is looking
to bring the space bounty hunter Lobo to the DCEU. And Wonder Woman writer Jason Fuchs is reportedly
working on the script now. The studio has also signed Brad Peyton, who
helmed the earthquake movie San Andreas, to direct. A film based on Lobo has kicked around development
hell for the better part of a decade, with Sherlock Holmes’ Guy Ritchie attached to make
one as far back as 2009. Despite the false starts, this new project
is apparently a fresh take on the character. Considering the success Fox and Marvel have
had with Deadpool, Lobo could be a foul-mouthed sweet spot for DC to get in on the action. Maybe. Thanks for watching! Click the Looper icon to subscribe to our

    All these extra films are trash DC just make:

    Superman: (recasted Lex Luthor as villain, make Lex more relatable)
    Batman: (Joker from individual movie as villain)(skip origin story)
    Wonder Woman 2: (Cheetah or Nubia as villain), Make her sister a deep
    character
    Aquaman 2: (Fisherman or Black Manta)
    Green Lantern Corps: (Sinestro as villain, make it a large scale space
    war)
    Shazam 2: (Black Adam as Villain, make sure to invest time into Back
    story of Adam)

    Flashpoint: (Basically emotional Barry goes back in time fucks things up
    and leads to Justice League, or do a flash movie vs Reverse Flash)

    Justice League: (Neron or The Ultra-Humanite as main villain)(Foreshadow
    a relationship with Darkseid) OR (Foreshadow potential Legion of Doom
    Team-up)

    (Have Batman be the one to assemble the team over time)

    Spin-offs:
    Static (FOR FUCKS SAKE IT WOULD BE SO EASY TO MAKE) (if you guys work
    out the rights to the character)

    Martian Man-Hunter
    Nightwing After Batman, then potentially Jason todd in the red hood
    after Batman 2
    Suicide Squad
    Batgirl
    birds of prey

    Hand over all the projects to good directors like Christopher Nolan, DC deserves better screenwriters, Directors and Producers, And stop picking Marvels Garbage when they kick someone out, Don’t repeat Green Latern.

    Dont listen to reviews anymore, seems like critics are against DC films and ramp up marvels, tbh I loved aquaman, justice league was ok, not as bad as they say and suicide squad was very good. Avengers for me is watchable but theres no story it's just "bad guy beats good guys, good guys regroup, good guys beat bad guy" same film recycled over and over. Even batman vs superman (which sucked) had a better ending than all of the avenger films (not seen endgame yet).

    I want DC to make all of these intro hero movies first and then work on justice league 2 so that every superhero shown before would be in a huge hero mashup

    I think the flash won’t be a movie because of the tv show. But I like to see a movie with the Wonder Twins that would be awesome
