Latino Review have today reported a rumour regarding Warner Brothers Pictures' potential slate of upcoming superhero films. At present, all that we know for certain is that the studio intends to release Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in two years' time and a Justice League of America film adaptation shortly after, but if the Review's report is anything to go by, then we may be hearing more on what's to come for DC comic-book adaptations sooner rather than later.
Take this 'information' with the traditional helping of salt, but whilst we give the Review the benefit of the doubt, here's how they claim Warner Bros' superhero movie roster will pan out in years to come:
- BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE- May 6th, 2016
- SHAZAM- July 2016
- SANDMAN- Christmas 2016
- JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA- May 2017
- WONDER WOMAN- July 2017
- FLASH/GREEN LANTERN TEAM-UP FILM- Christmas 2017
- MAN OF STEEL 3- May 2018
Given that Gal Gadot will make her first on-screen appearance as Wonder Woman in Dawn of Justice come 2016, the notion that she will eventually gain her own standalone film seems logical, if not virtually inevitable, and the 2018 fully-fledged Man of Steel sequel is all but a given in light of Batman stealing half of Supes' limelight in their impending crossover flick. Even so, though, the Shazam and Sandman adaptations seem somewhat like long shots at this point, especially since neither of their titular protagonists are renowned for their past JLA appearances in the comic-books. If the Review's source has hit a correct nerve or two, then we'd anticipate that we'll hear plenty more news from Warner at this year's ComicCon next month.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice clashes with cinemas worldwide on May 6th, 2016.
