Further to the recent rumour (courtesy of Deadline’s ex-boss Nikki Finke) that DC’s post-DAWN OF JUSTICE movie schedule is set to include SHAZAM and SANDMAN in the same year, followed by JUSTICE LEAGUE, WONDER WOMAN and a FLASH/GREEN LANTERN team up flick the next (utter nonsense), capped off by 2018's MAN OF STEEL 2, comes a brand new report as to what the studio has planned for 2019. That’s right, we’re now talking about summer blockbuster releases that are five years away. Ludicrous. Anyway, the occasionally bang-on-the-money rumour factory that is Latino Review are reporting that Warner Bros are eyeing a 2019 debut for THE BATMAN, Affleck’s first solo outing for the soon-to-be-rebooted Dark Knight Detective. Do we believe ‘em? Absolutely.
As for the rest of DC’s rumoured slate, well, the fact it never even made our front page probably clues you in to how little stock we put in that one. Shazam? Does anybody truly believe DC/Warner Bros would diminish one of their flagship icons by introducing the masses to an even lesser known brightly coloured, super-strengthed flying bloke in a cape? Or how about spending even more money rolling the dice again on a Green Lantern picture? Not going to happen, with or without The Flash randomly knocking about (doubly so considering that particular character will likely have his own TV show running concurrently). We even doubt Supes will be granted his own bona fide sequel anytime soon! The only truth in that list comes in the form of JUSTICE LEAGUE (already confirmed), the SANDMAN movie we already knew was in the works, and that solo WONDER WOMAN flick that’s long overdue. Expect confirmation at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, where the studio will likely look to steal some thunder by capitalising on Marvel Studios' recent super secret approach to scheduling.
BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE opens May 2016.
