Now here’s a rundown of the revealed upcoming DC pics based on the report from Entertainment Weekly:
Of course, we all know about WB’s upcoming “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” a sequel to “Man of Steel,” which will see the return of Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman as well as Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane. “Batman v. Superman” will also introduce other DC superheroes such as Ben Affleck who will play Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Victor Stone/Cyborg and Jason Momoa as Aquaman. Jesse Eisenberg will be playing central villain, Lex Luthor. “Dawn of Justice” is written by Chris Terrio and directed by Zack Snyder set for March 25, 2016.
The year 2016 will also see the release of “Suicide Squad,” based on the name of a supervillain/A.R.G.U.S. taskforce in the comics. The team was also featured in The CW’s "Arrow," but unfortunately, DC plans for a separate universe for its movies and TV series. "Suicide Squad" will be directed by David Ayer
The year 2017 will feature Wonder Woman’s own pic, with Gal Gadot, who plays Wonder Woman in “Batman v. Superman,” reprising her role.
Along with Wonder Woman’s 2017 release is "Justice League Part One," where the “Batman v. Superman” cast will also be reprising their heroic roles. Zack Snyder is also set to direct.
The year 2018 will feature “The Flash,” starring Ezra Miller as the fastest man alive. Miller is rumored to have a cameo in “Batman v. Superman.”
“Aquaman” is also set for a 2018 release, with Jason Momoa taking up the role of the King of Seven Seas.
The earlier mentioned “Shazam” will hit theaters by 2019, with Dwayne Johnson as the anti-hero Black Adam, while there are no reports yet who will play the titular character.
The "Justice League" sequel, “Justice League Part Two,” will roll out by 2019, with Zack Snyder also directing.
By 2020, DC will introduce “Cyborg” with Ray Fisher playing the titular role.
Moreover, a new “Green Lantern” movie is set for 2020. It isn’t confirmed whether this is a sequel that starred Ryan Reynolds or an all-new film. We’ll just have to wait for WB’s announcements.
