DC Cinematic Universe updates.

DC has released a timeline of their future slate of flicks, so, let's go through that in post form....

Batman v Superman: 
Dawn Of Justice.

Sequel to "Man Of Steel".
With Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luther, and Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth.

Coming May 2016.

Shazam (2016)

With Dwayne "The Rock", Johnson as Black Adam.

DC has said this isn't part of the Man Of Steel/Dawn Of Justice/Justice League universe.
They're not going for full integration Marvel style after all.

Coming July 2016.

???  (August, 2016)

First of these, and there's a lot of them.

Sandman (2016)

See here.

Another self contained one.
Produced by, starring, and possibly directed by Joseph Gordon Levitt, being written by David Goyer with input and assistance by Neil Gaiman.

Slated for Christmas of 2016.

Justice League (2017)

Sequel to "Dawn Of Justice", Cavill, Affleck, and Gadot will be back, natch.
Also on board will be Aquaman, Cyborg, Green Lantern, and Flash.
Jason Mamoa (Game Of Thrones, Conan remake) is supposed to be Aquaman, but he refuses to confirm it.

They'll be fighting Darkseid like in "Justice League: War".

Coming May 2017.

??? (June 23, 2017)

'Nother one of these....

Wonder Woman (2017)

Spinoff of "Dawn Of Justice", and "Justice League", starring Gal Gadot of course.

Almost 40 years after Linda Carter left the airwaves, Wonder Woman finally gets her solo big screen debut.
But no, no sexism in Hollywood, really.

??? (November 11, 2017)

'Nother one of these....

Flash and Green Lantern team-up (2017)

Presumably, another spinoff of "Justice League".

??? (March 23, 2018)

'Nother one...

Man Of Steel 2 (2018)

Poor Henry Cavill.
His franchise gets hijacked because DC wants to copy Marvel, and play catch up.
It takes 5 damned years for him to get his next movie to himself.

Anyway, comes out May 2018.

??? (July 27, 2018)
??? (April 5, 2019)
??? (June 14, 2019)
??? (April 3, 2020)
??? (June 19, 2020)

Like I told you at the start, crapload of these suckers.

So, those are the release slots with no movie.
Now, for movies with no release date....

Aquaman (???)

Spinoff of "Dawn Of Justice", and "Justice League".
Jason Mamoa presumed to be Aquaman.

New Solo Batman (??? 2019)

Another "Dawn Of Justice", "Justice League", spinoff.
Presumably starring Ben Affleck.

Goes into one of the 2019 slots above.
That's right, 2019.
7 years after "The Dark Knight Rises", we finally get a new fucking Batman movie.

Oh, no, DC, you're not fumbling this at all.

Justice League: Dark (???)

Guillermo del Toro still hasn't given up on this.

This would seem to clash with the Constantine series, but the movie Flash will co-exist with series Flash, and Brandon Routh Superman co-existed with Smallville Clark Kent just fine, and the universe didn't break.

I just want Swamp Thing onscreen with all his elemental powers.
The rest will be gravy.

Legion Of Superheroes (???)

A faint rumor so far, but they'd BETTER be making some of these fucking flicks, or else what are they gonna fill those fucking slots with?
There's 9 of the fucking things!!

Suicide Squad (???)

See "Batman: Assault On Arkham".

David Ayer wants to direct.

I just want live-action Harley Quinn.
The rest is gravy.

Harley was supposed to be the core villain of Batman 5, before the Burton/Schumaker franchise collapsed, and she's been skipped over ever since.
Shit, they rehashed Two-Face and Bane before they got to Harley.
In that respect, she's the Wonder Woman of villains.
This flick would fix that once and for all, and be 1000 times better than Batman 5 would have been.

Assuming they make every last one of these, that still leaves 4 slots to fill.
I'm assuming Justice League, Wonder Woman, Superman, and Batman sequels have to be in the mix.

And, that's those.
The end.

See you in 20-fucking-20 for how all this worked out.

It's Brainiac instead of Darkseid in Justice League, and there's no Harley in Suicide Squad.
