Back in the beginning of August, we learned that Warner Bros. had staked out a slew of future release dates for DC Comics films, but with no indication of what films might be arriving in those slots beyond the promise of Justice League following sometime after Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Well, thanks to the same shareholders meeting that revealed Ezra Miller will play The Flash in a standalone film arriving in 2018 (along with Jason Momoa getting his own Aquaman film that same year), we now have a much better idea of what films Warner Bros. has lined up, and when we'll see them hit theaters. Read on!
Here's what Wall Street Journal reporter Ben Fritz posted on Twitter about DC Comics movies:
So as you can see, Suicide Squad will be the first DC Comics film to follow Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and it will arrive in that August 5th, 2016 slot, likely with hopes of having the same box office success as Guardians of the Galaxy. Then Warner Bros. will release Wonder Woman on June 23rd, 2017 with Justice League: Part One following on November 17th, 2017. The next year will see The Flash hitting theaters on March 23rd, 2018 followed by Aquaman on July 27th, 2018. In the spring after that, Shazam (featuring Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam) arrives on April 5th, 2019 and Justice League: Part Two arrives on June 14th, 2019. And finally, in 2020, Ray Fisher will star in Cyborg on April 3rd, 2020 and a reboot of Green Lantern is coming on June 19th, 2020. Just let that sink in.
