With Warner Brothers’ DC Extended Universe finally giving us a movie that we can all agree was outright stunning with this year’s Wonder Woman, the studio has now moved to update their release calendar – including adding two new releases to the schedule.
In an announcement, The WB confirmed 2020 release dates for two mystery DC-driven movies; one for February 14th and one for June 5th. In addition to that, Warners also confirmed an animated film for June 1st, 2018 and an untitled ‘event film’ for December 13th, 2019.
Of course, these films join a whole host of previously-confirmed DC pictures, although most of these already-announced movies are currently without release dates. In fact, the only films with release dates booked in right now are Zack Snyder’s Justice League this November 17th and James Wan’s Aquaman for December 21st, 2018.
Elsewhere, Matt Reeves’ The Batman has Joe Manganiello on board as the villainous Deathstroke to go up against Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader, although this past week saw director Reeves reveal that he’s starting the movie’s story from scratch. Then there’s the Ezra Miller-headlined The Flash, currently in search of a director after both Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa separately left the director’s chair over creative differences. Then there’s Ray Fisher to take centre-stage in Cyborg, the Dwayne Johnson-starring Black Adam, a Shazam! picture, the long-mooted Justice League Dark, and also the introduction of the Emerald Knights in Green Lantern Corps. .Throw in further solo outings for Henry Cavill’s Superman and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, a Suicide Squad sequel, and then David Ayer’s female-centric Gotham City Sirens, Joss Whedon’s Batgirl, and Chris McKay’s Nightwing, and there's quite the selection of superhero and supervillain shenanigans to come.
Previously, some of these films were given release dates by Warners, but a lot changed following the so-so response to Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Suicide Squad. Of course, Wonder Woman managed to break the cycle and gave us all a truly monumental DC movie, and so now Warner Brothers is once again a little more confident in the DCEU that they’re continuing to put together.
