Here Is A List Of Upcoming DC Comics Movies
If you have been paying attention, you may have noticed some DC Comics-based movies that Warner Bros. is working on. But have you got a glimpse of them all?
DC Films has announced many projects that are in various stages of development. It is not likely that all of them will make it to the silver screen.
Some are obvious, like Aquaman and Wonder Woman II. Others are obscure like Justice League Dark and Booster Gold.
There are about 18 projects in works for DC Films. Most of them sound like they will be a part of the shared universe spearheaded by Justice League, but it includes the new Elseworlds-style label for their ‘out of continuity’ projects.
The Sure Things
From director James Wan, this one is in production. It is set to come out on December 21, 2018. Jason Momoa reprises his role as Aquaman, leading an all-star cast that includes Nicole Kidman, Patrick Williams, Willem Dafoe, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Amber Heard and Temuera Morrison.
Now in pre-production, Annabelle: Creation director David F. Sandberg is casting for the Marvel family and Billy Batson.
The movie was announced as part of DC Films’ movie slate in 2014, and it is on target to meet its April 5, 2019 release date.
3. Wonder Woman II
After the box office smash of the summer hit theaters, a sequel to Wonder Woman was a no brainer. Warner Bros. has locked in director Patty Jenkins to return, and Gal Gadot will be reprising this role.
