DC Comics Movie List
If a report on the recently launched (how recently? as in…today) NikkiFinke.com is to be believed, Warner Bros. is looking to remedy this with a flurry of superhero movies that rival Marvel’s. Supposedly, this plan will be revealed at this year’s San Diego Comic Con.
DC Comics Movie List:
May 2016 – Batman v Superman
July 2016 – Shazam
December 2016 – Sandman
May 2017 – Justice League
July 2017 – Wonder Woman
December 2017 – Flash and Green Lantern team-up
May 2018 – Man Of Steel 2
Ms. Finke’s source indicates that the delays on Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice have less to do with any trouble with the production and more to do with lining up all the pieces necessary for this film to effectively give WB’s DC franchise a running start. This was later confirmed by Kevin Smith during one of his weekly podcasts.
Director and media personality Kevin Smith took to his weekly podcast Monday, Hollywood Babble-On, to discuss the new breaking rumor about WB’s plans that he is at least somewhat privy to. After all, he famously gushed about the new short-eared Batman costume before fans got a glimpse, and even hosted a Zack Snyder and Amy Adams online meet-and-greet with fans earlier this year. On Finke’s scooped DC line-up, Smith had this to say when his podcast partner Ralph Garman said Finke claims to have the layout for all the upcoming DC films.
“So do I…because I know people, motherfucker. I’m not allowed to say, but they showed me…I looked at your list, and I was like ‘Yeah, that’s what I heard. That’s what I was told.’ It’s cool.”
That would seem to be fairly ambiguous as Smith acts on the linked audio clip like he is keeping his cards close to his vest. But then again, he did seem to say Garman’s list is true. Supposedly, we’ll know for sure come next month’s Comic-Con. I for one am hoping the DC comics movie list is at lest somewhat accurate because I would love to see a Shazam movie!
