Upcoming DC Movies

While the groundwork for the DC Cinematic Universe was laid down in Man of Steel, this new franchise of superhero movies from Warner Bros. really kicks into high gear with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The action-adventure features two of the most iconic DC Heroes together for the first time, as The Dark Knight and The First Son of Krypton go head-to-head in the greatest fight ever brought to the big screen. The hard-hitting adventure will introduce several other DCCU characters, including Wonder Woman in her first ever DC movies appearance.

The other DC Superheros to be introduced in Batman v Superman include Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg. They will form the Justice League before moving onto an epic ensemble that sees all of these DC comic characters working together to fight an evil force that wants to destroy the entire world. Each character will then get their own DC Comics Movie over the course of the next 5 years, with a total of 10 releases planned. There are also rumors that a Batman solo adventure will be announced, making it a total of 11 movies before the year 2020.

It is possible that the Batman solo film will expand into a trilogy, with Ben Affleck reprising his on-screen role, while directing and co-writing each installment. Superman, who was introduced to the new DCEU (DC Expanded Universe) in Man of Steel, was supposed to get a proper sequel that instead became Batman v Superman. At this time, there are no plans for a Superman standalone sequel. But that could change before 2020.

The superheroes aren’t the only ones that get to have fun. Suicide Squad, which releases a few months after Batman V Superman, will introduce a group of DC Villains to the screen as they work with the government on a do-or-die mission that could win them their freedom. The other DC Comics Movies that we’ll be seeing throughout the last half of the decade include, in order of release, Wonder Woman and Justice League Part 1 in 2017, The Flash and Aquaman in 2018, with a possible Batman solo movie being lined up for that year. Shazam and Justice League Part 2 in 2019, and then 2020 will wrap up with Cyborg and Green Lantern Corps.

Warner Bros.’ DC Comic Movies will also expand to the Vertigo line, which includes Sandman, Dark Universe (which is also known as Justice League Dark), and Legions of Super-Heroes, which is described as the Guardians of the Galaxy of the DCCU. There are also rumors that a Metal Men movie is in the works.
