Huge and exciting news coming out of the Warner Bros. investors meeting today, as they took the opportunity to announce the timeline for their superhero movie releases through the year 2020. 10 movies in all have been included, with some large news in the list below:
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, directed by Zack Snyder (2016)
Suicide Squad, directed by David Ayer (2016)
Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot (2017)
Justice League Part One, directed by Zack Snyder, with Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams reprising their roles (2017)
The Flash, starring Ezra Miller (2018)
Aquaman, starring Jason Momoa (2018)
Justice League Part Two, directed by Zack Snyder (2019)
Cyborg, starring Ray Fisher (2020)
Green Lantern (2020)
Perhaps the biggest thing to immediately take away from the list is that Zack Snyder will indeed be put to the task to not only direct Justice League Part One, but its sequel Justice League Part Two as well. Another bit of information worthy of note is that Ezra Miller will be stepping up and playing the title character in The Flash, instead of Grant Gustin who already plays the character on the small screen. It’s too early to say whether or not this is the right move as The Flash television series is still young with massive potential.
Excluded from the list but announced in the official press release are a set of standalone Batman and Superman films. They both have yet to receive release dates and directors. It’s thrilling to see that DC and Warner Bros. are starting to create a more cohesive universe, and it’s leaving me optimistic for their future. There is no better time to be a fan of superhero movies, and the DC cinematic universe is only going to grow and get better from here on out. Here’s to a much better adaptation of the Green Lantern in 2020!
