WB Reveals Full DC Slate Through 2020, Including Two 'Justice League' Pics, 'Wonder Woman,' 'Green Lantern' & More

If you’re weary of comic book movies, tired of the whole tentpole thing, and couldn’t give a flying you-know-what to interconnected superhero universes, you better move on. Today, Warner Bros. unveiled more of their massive DC Comics plans, setting dates for the expected character spinoffs, and one massive team-up movie.

First up, “Suicide Squad” (with David Ayer now confirmed to direct) seems to be much further along than anyone expected, with a 2016 release planned (we presume it’ll take the August 5, 2016 date WB already flagged). In 2017, the studio will drop both “Justice League” and “Wonder Woman.” 2018 will see “The Flash” (with Ezra Miller bagging the lead role) and “Aquaman,” and then in 2019, things get huge, with both “Justice League 2” and “Shazam.” And oh, how big will those “Justice League” movies be? Well, Zack Snyder is directing and it will be a two-part affair. Damn.

And that’s not all. 2020 will bring “Cyborg” starring Ray Fisher, and the reboot of “Green Lantern,” probably not starring Ryan Reynolds. And where are Batman and Superman? Never fear, solo movies are in the works for both characters, but we won’t be seeing them for at least six years. So look out Marvel, you’ve got a newcomer chomping at the bit right on your heels.
