There have been reports about an ambitious film schedule that reportedly will have seven DC Comic-based films the likes of which will be “Shazam,” The Sandman,” and a long-awaited “Wonder Woman” film. This has been reported by various news sites the likes of which include Comic Book Resources and NikkiFinke.com where this list can originally be found.
For the list of films, it is as follows:
May 2016 – Batman v Superman
July 2016 – Shazam
Christmas 2016 – Sandman
May 2017 – Justice League
July 2017 – Wonder Woman
Xmas 2017 – Flash and Green Lantern team-up
May 2018 – Man Of Steel 2
There has yet to be any statement from Warner Bros to neither confirm nor deny this information however the consensus is that these will be announced at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. This would mean that the studio is up to give the super-successful Marvel films a run for their money in the production of comic book movies.
This reported list of films not only shows a high frequency and somewhat urgency on the part of the Warner Bros film studio to make new films to compete with the aforementioned Marvel studios, who currently have a strong grip on the comic book movie market. This also shows the risks they may be willing to take with movies like “Shazam” or “The Sandman” or even a Green Lantern/Flash team up film. Not to mention how Wonder Woman has not been treated with the proper big screen treatment due to the studio feeling it would be too risky to make.
As of right now, the only two films that have been confirmed by Warner Bros and DC Comics have been the much anticipated “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and a “Justice League” film both of which being directed by Zack Snyder and following the events of 2013’s “Man of Steel”
