Once upon a time, Warner Bros. was really confident in their superhero output. They’d dated two films a year for the foreseeable future – The Flash and Aquaman in 2018, Shazam! and Justice League 2 in 2019, and Green Lantern Corps and Cyborg in 2020 – but as things stand, James Wan’s Aquaman seems like the only one of those that will happen on time, and they’ve already announced their intentions to get started on another 3,746,839 films in the meantime. Two of those films are going to arrive in 2020, in addition to the two dates they’ve already blocked off.
Cyborg (April 3rd 2020) and Green Lantern Corps (July 24th 2020) have just been joined by Untitled DC Film (February 14th 2020) and also Untitled DC Film (June 5th 2020). There’s no guarantee either of those named films will make their release dates, and given that Warner Bros. still seems intent on making a Flash movie, the Scarlet Speedster is likely to take precedence once they figure out what they’re doing with him.
There was a recent rumor that Shazam! would begin production early next year (along with some dispute about whether or not Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam would feature as the villain), so there’s every chance that film could be ready in the next few years. We’ve all heard about Batgirl, Suicide Squad 2, Gotham City Sirens and all the other ideas being thrown around, but the only sure things as of now seem to be a Wonder Woman sequel and a Matt Reeves Batman movie, both of which are still being written.
Four movies in the span of five months seems excessive, so you can expect some clarity on DC’s release schedule come this weekend’s Comic Con. We’ll be on the ground in San Diego, so keep your eyes peeled for updates!
