Well, the hits just keep on coming for Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment today. The studio has announced the dates for a bunch of forthcoming movies with ties to Justice League, they've announced that Ezra Miller is playing The Flash, and that Zack Snyder is directing a two-part Justice League movie. But there's another little detail that's been somewhat overlooked. The studio also has plans for standalone movies for Ben Affleck as Batman and another movie for Henry Cavill as Superman. They haven't been given dates yet, but the press release says they will arrive sometime between 2016 and 2020. Read on!
At this point, it's tough to say when these films might end up in theaters. The best move would be to have them happen between Justice League movies most likely, since it would seem anti-climactic to have one of them come after the conclusion of the two-part Justice League arc. But at the same time, we don't even know how these individual film franchises are going to tie into Justice League, especially with Aquaman and The Flash movies happening between the two Justice League movies. But we're sure Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have a big plan, we just don't know enough about it yet beyond release dates.
