Ever since Justice League, featuring three of Warner Bros.’s most bankable characters in Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, failed to open to even half of the first weekend box office gross of The Avengers, we have all been wondering what will be DC’s next move. Which projects that seemed like sure things before Justice League would DC and Warner Bros cancel or postpone, after their big three didn’t deliver?
Well, DC rarely seems to know much more than we do — though they always have big plans, they often adjust them — but here is current slate as it was shown this weekend at Comic-Con Experience 2017 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, per ComicBookMovie.com:
Wonder Woman II
Suicide Squad 2
Green Lantern Corps
Justice League Dark
This list is obviously not in release order, as Aquaman is up next in December 2018, Shazam! shoots in early 2018, and Wonder Woman II (note that DC is officially using roman numerals instead of a ‘2,’ now) has a release date in November 2019. So, we could be getting any of these movies in any old order, as we still do not have confirmation as to what follows Wonder Woman II. But, at least we can see what DC’s current priorities are.
Films missing from the current slate that we’ve seen mentioned in the past include Cyborg, Deathstroke, Gotham City Sirens, Harley Quinn, Joker & Harley Quinn, Nightwing, Justice League 2, and that standalone Joker movie separate from the rest of the DC Extended Universe. This doesn’t mean these projects aren’t happening, they just may not be as far along as those on the the list DC showcased.
What do you think of the movies DC is currently promising? Personally, I am thrilled Justice League Dark is still on the list! What do you think should be dropped? Or which one that was omitted would you most like to see? Let us know in the comment section below!
