It's not everyday you see me writing stuff about the "news", but this one is for a great reason. According to The Wall Street Journal, Warner Bros. released the names of the movies being made between 2016 and 2020, but with no real specific date just the years. This was posted about four hours ago on their site, check it out:
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” — As previously reported, it will star Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and will feature cameos by other superheroes. Zack Snyder is directing.
“Suicide Squad” — Directed by David Ayer (“Fury,” “End of Watch”), and the cast is yet to be announced. The comic book features a team of semi-reformed super villains working for the government. The team previously appeared in CW’s “Arrow” series, which is based on the Green Arrow character.
“Wonder Woman” — Starring Gadot in the first ever major superhero film focused on a female character.
“Justice League” — DC Comics’ own super team and a rival to Marvel and Disney 's wildly lucrative “Avengers.” Also directed by Snyder, it will star Cavill, Affleck, Gadot and others. Initially, it was reported that we might not see this movie before 2018.
“The Flash” — Starring Ezra Miller (“The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” “We Need to Talk About Kevin”) as the super-speedster. This is a different version of the character on the new CW TV show starring Grant Gustin in the title role.
“Aquaman” — Starring Jason Momoa (“Conan,” “Game of Thrones”) as the king of the high seas who can breathe underwater and communicate telepathically with sea creatures.
“Justice League 2” — No further details, other than that Snyder will return to direct this installment.
“Shazam” — Dwayne Johnson will play villain Black Adam in this story of a boy transformed by a wizard into a super-man.
“Cyborg” — starring Ray Fisher as the superhero who’s half man, half robot.
“Green Lantern” — A reboot about the man who can transform his will into reality with a ring created by aliens. A 2011 movie starring Ryan Reynolds was a flop.
There will also be new standalone films about Superman and Batman, the studio said.
Warner Bros. also announced it will release three new Lego movies: “Lego Ninjago” in 2016, “Lego Batman” in 2017, and “The Lego Movie 2″ in 2018
In addition, the studio said it will release its three “Harry Potter” spin-off movies in the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” series, also written by J.K Rowling, in 2016, 2018 and 2020
Like woah, that is a lot to take in! Now, I'm not totally jumping to conclusions saying this is 100% possible, I'm not like that, but you never now this could be the real deal!
Most people guessed a lot of the movies with there dates before (Shazam, Wonder Woman, Suicide Squad), but some I find are really odd.
I think it's odd that they are making Justice League and the Flash movies so early since the Flash TV show just got started! Also, right after Batman v. Superman, next year is the Justice League? I wouldn't bet my money on that one. Also, a Cyborg movie? Why not do a Teen Titans movie not a solo Cyborg, but maybe Cyborg will be totally bad-a** in the Justice League movie. We just don't know for sure.
Also, I don't see Man of Steel 2, Flash and Green Lantern Team-up, or any news on a Batman solo movie. But, I'm sure Warner Bros. wouldn't release all their planned movies if this is real.
I can also image tons of Harry Potter fans going crazy right now also, which is good also! If true of course.
And of course those Lego fans are throwing their tiny bricks in the air in joy.
Right now there's a lot of questions and rumors going around, but is this the real deal? Do you think this is legit? Do you like the idea of a Harry Potter spin-off? Do you just not care about DC?
