Warner Bros. released some major casting news, release dates and more for its upcoming DC Comics movies. Read on below:
After ‘Batman vs Superman‘ in March 2016, it will be followed by the release of ‘Suicide Squad‘ in the summer of 2016, directed by David Ayer. For 2017, we finally have the release dates for ‘Justice League‘ and ‘Wonder Woman‘, and then on 2018 ‘Aquaman‘ will be released starring Jason Momoa. Also in 2018, Ezra Miller has been officially cast as ‘The Flash‘. Then in 2019, ‘Shazam‘ starring The Rock as Black Adam will hit the big screen as well as ‘Justice League 2‘, also directed by Zack Snyder. On the other hand, while there aren’t release dates yet available, a ‘Cyborg‘ movie starring Ray Fisher and a ‘Green Lantern‘ reboot are also in the works as well as stand-alone Batman and Superman films.
So, the Warner Bros/DC Comics releases look something like this:
March 25th, 2016 – Batman vs Superman
Aug. 5th, 2016 – Suicide Squad
June 23rd, 2017 – Wonder Woman

I personally love the fact that Ezra Miller has been cast as The Flash, and am hoping to see him in the ‘Justice League’ films as well. Also, very bold move on behalf of DC Comics by releasing a whole movie universe lineup and taking into account that we still have not seen ‘Batman vs. Superman‘, hoping that the film becomes an indicator of what to expect in the future.
Warner Bros. announced three more Harry Potter movies based on J.K Rowling’s ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’, to be released in 2016, 2018 and 2020. The first film is directed by David Yates and features Rowling’s screenwriting debut.
For all of you Lego fans out there, in the next four years you’ll have three Lego movies, including ‘The Lego Batman Movie‘ coming in 2017 and ‘The Lego Movie 2‘ in 2018.
