New DC Extended Universe Slate Coming Soon

Shares

A source close to Warner Bros. has revealed to us that a new DC Slate will be arriving soon, to what extent is unsure, but they know that it will involve more Batman films, this further supports the rumor that Warner Bros. is looking to extended Ben Affleck’s contract to include three solo films on top of the films he’s already attached to.

We also know that two of Ben Affleck’s films for Warner Bros., separated from the DC Extended Universe, release dates and production start date been pushed back. It rumored it’s because Warner Bros. wants Ben Affleck with Geoff Johns, to focus on the script for the Batman solo film.

We also know that Warner Bros. is using their sister studio New Line Cinema, to make a slew of Vertigo titles, which will include 100 Bullets, Sandman and the DC Extended Universe film Shazam, so perhaps they’ll be a few more added onto that list.

This could also include a date for Man of Steel 2 and Justice League Dark, as we have reported the Man of Steel 2 rumor of being put on hold is a hard pill to swallow, as Warner Bros. has begun to prove how dedicated they are to following through with their overall plans.

Also Guillermo Del Toro’s script for Justice League Dark is finished, so all they’ll need is a director and date, since Guillermo Del Toro is too busy to direct it.

We also know from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, that we may get the Shazam film sooner than it was originally planned.

The current slate goes as follows:

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) – directed by Zack Snyder  {Finished Filming}

Suicide Squad (2016) directed by David Ayer  {Finished Filming}

Wonder Woman (2017) – directed by Patty Jerkins, starring Gal Gadot  {Begins Filming in Fall 2015}

Justice League: Part One (2017) – directed by Zack Snyder, with Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot {Begins Filming in Spring 2016}

The Flash (2018) starring Ezra Miller

Aquaman (2018) – starring Jason Momoa

Shazam (2019) – starring Dwayne Johnson {May begin shooting sooner than originally intended}

Justice League Part 2 (2019)directed by Zack Snyder {Rumor to shoot back-to-back with Part 1}

Cyborg (2020) – starring Ray Fisher

Green Lantern (2020)

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me

    oh my god yes i want justice league dark

  • Eobard Thawne

    Interesting, I’m assuming this source is reliable?

    • I would say reliable. Accurate? The verdict is still out.

      But this does make sense if it’s like last year when they announced the current slate, which was at the beginning of Oct.

      • Eobard Thawne

        It certainly makes sense, I agree, and we won’t tell if it’s accurate until we do (if we do) get an announcement. Guess we’ll just have to hold out hope!

      • BROWN_KNIGHT

        Either ty for the awesome info.

  • Newmantoplease

    I’m loving everything I’m hearing but I want my MOS sequel! Just do it already!

  • fevasu

    I hope they announce MoS 2 just to shut up haters

  • The day when the new slate drops (if it does drop).

    • SadKingBilly

      Might want to add James Wan as director for Aquaman!

  • See, this is why I love this site. I checked around to a lot of the major sites; nobody else is reporting this. So WHEN this info gets confirmed, remember: you heard it here first!!

  • Abhishek

    I guess they’ll announce it (if this is true) when WW starts filming. Hope they don’t do it in investors’ meeting this time to give Marvelites something to whine about.

    • BROWN_KNIGHT

      Let them. You dont think it was done that way on the other side too?? Remember who they answer too. Investors always.

      • OMG, this. Marvel’s way isn’t the only way. Just because they announced stuff at D23, doesn’t mean they care more about fans than WB/DC does.

        • BROWN_KNIGHT

          They are just like apple. Just have an awesome marketing team. Now when dc steps in as android did…the world will see substance.

    • SadKingBilly

      WW has already started in London Im pretty sure (?)

    • Marvel Phrase 1 was announced at an investor meeting as well, never understood why when WB did it, it was looked upon badly by some Marvel fans… outside from them being ignorant to the fact how phrase 1 of Marvel was announced.

      • It’s called “bias”.

      • Son Goku

        It’s called “ignorance”.

  • BROWN_KNIGHT

    Pretty garguantan if true!!! I hope for MOS 2 and casting news on the films and characters. That would be sweet if shazam comes out sooner. He could drop march 2017.

  • Guilherme

    Justice League Dark please! And I hope those rumors about MoS 2 being on “permanent” hold are false.
