DC Rumblings: Flash, Wonder Woman, Aquaman in the Works
We've heard this before, but it's always good to hear it mentioned again. Warner Bros chairman and CEO Barry Meyer appeared at Time Warner's "investor day" in New York City today (via Heat Vision) for a brief presentation on the upcoming Warner Bros' slate. In addition to mentioning lots of what we already know, including that Sherlock Holmes 2 will be released in December 2011 next year, he apparently dropped a few big names on the
DC Comics DC Entertainment side of things that are coming up. Specifically, Meyer said that they were "nearing" a greenlight on The Flash movie based on the speedy superhero. But that's not all!
Meyer also said that films featuring Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Mad magazine characters" (Spy vs Spy?) are also in development. That means that they're "in the works," but no clue as to how soon we'll see any of them. Meyer also confirmed that the new Superman movie will be released during the holiday season in 2012 (November/December) and that Christopher Nolan's next Batman movie would indeed be hitting theaters in July of 2012, as we already know. So if those films are scheduled, we probably won't see Wonder Woman or Aquaman or The Flash until at least 2013 or beyond (that's a very long time from now).
I'm sure we'll be hearing a lot more about all of these projects, as well as Martin Campbell's Green Lantern movie, at the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con in July. This is a fairly similar presentation to the one that Warner Bros gave at ShoWest back in March. As in, they've got some big DC Entertainment titles coming up to fill in for Harry Potter after that series is over, but it's just a matter of getting them greenlit. At least we know that a Flash movie is finally coming soon! In February we reported that there "was a good chance" that Life as We Know It director Greg Berlanti would be directing The Flash next. Hopefully that happens soon!
