DC Plants Flag on Dates for Nine Superhero Movies Through 2020
August 6, 2014 | 01:29PM PT

Now it’s DC Entertainment’s turn to plant the flag on dates for untitled superhero movies through 2020.

Warner Bros. announced dates for nine new DC movies, starting in 2016, giving the studio two DC-based properties in theaters that year, beginning with”Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” out March 25, 2016.

The new dates are as follows:

Aug. 5, 2016: Untitled DC Film

June 23, 2017: Untitled DC Film

Nov. 17, 2017: Untitled DC Film

March 23, 2018: Untitled DC Film

July 27, 2018: Untitled DC Film

April 5, 2019: Untitled DC Film

June 14, 2019: Untitled DC Film

April 3, 2020: Untitled DC Film

June 19, 2020: Untitled DC Film

Let the speculation begin on what those will be.

I expect those dates to be written in sand, not stone. This feels like a reactionary move since Marvel publicized a schedule through 2030 or whatever. It's more of a P.R. stunt than anything else.

Just remember, this type of thing was rumored several months ago before Marvel made their announcement IIRC.

I think Warner Bros is kicking themselves they had to push Batman v. Superman back to 2016, they had massive heat coming out of Comic Con and it will be hard to recapture that excitement for almost 24 more months. I believe they released that promo video to end the Gal Gadot pot shots and change the tone of fan discussion. Unfortunately it worked too well and people want to see the movie right now.

Yes, I'm sure they released that video to do just that.

Super Max? I thought that died years ago.

Might've, but it's still listed on HSX so I put it with the rest.

Sandman? Even if that movie does get made it won't be branded as a DCU film.

re: Future DC Extended Universe projects discussion thread - News, rumors, etc.

This seems so much like a reaction to Marvel's schedule and DC yelling "look at us! we have a plan and know what we're doing too!" and hoping everyone will believe them.

I wish they would stop trying to copy or match whatever Marvel is doing and just focus on telling good stories.

As long as Goyer and Snyder are involved, that won't happen.

For the other 2 events films not listed, are those the possible Potter-more films?

'Aquaman' Movie Hooks Two Writers (Exclusive)
4:08 PM PDT 8/12/2014 by Borys Kit

Will Beall and Kurt Johnstad are sleeping with the fishes.

The scribes are writing — separately — scripts for Aquaman, one of the installments in Warner Bros.’ multimovie scheme to create a cinematic universe based on the DC Entertainment characters.


Aquaman is being developed on dual tracks, where studios and producers hire two separate writers to work on the same project in the hopes of getting the best version. The practice allows for release dates to be set while a project is still in development while giving it a muscular push. Warners needs just that as last week it dated nine untitled DC movies between 2016 and 2020.

Warners is not revealing which one of those will be Aquaman, but the first untitled DC movie is due for release on Aug. 5, 2016, with two more due in 2017, on June 23 and Nov. 17, respectively.

Aquaman is one of comicdom’s classic characters, having been created in 1941 by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger. The character has been with the Justice League since the team's inception in 1960 and got a major boost in pop culture recognition with the 1970s cartoon series Super Friends. The show, however, also made him the butt of jokes about him being too hackneyed and simple; the perception was that all he could do was talk to marine animals.

(The jokes continue to this day. An Aquaman movie was at the center of a major storyline on HBO's Entourage and just last week Zack Snyder, who is directing Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice as well as the Justice League movie, surprised a Detroit radio talk show, whose DJs were disparaging the hero, by calling in and defending him.)

Jason Momoa is widely acknowledged as having secured the role of Aquaman in Warners’ DC cinematic universe, although Warners had not yet officially confirmed the casting.

Both Beall and Johnstad are part of Warners’ familiar stable of scribes.

Beall wrote Gangster Squad for the studio and worked on a version of Justice League before the project was made part of the DC movie tapestry. The writer, who is repped by CAA, Management 360 and McKuin Frankel, also penned episodes of TV’s Castle.

Johnstad, repped by WME and Untitled, is a Snyder favorite, having worked on the director’s 300 and the recent Snyder-produced 300: Rise of an Empire.

Warners had no comment.
Sounds like a plan... a not so good one though.

Eh, not good, not bad. Whatever. It's Aquaman, seems it would be within Johnstad's wheelhouse. THIS. IS. ATLANTIS!

That's the same tactic used for Lethal Weapon 4. Remember how that turned out?

re: Future DC Extended Universe projects discussion thread - News, rumors, etc.

The whole dual tracks thing makes it sound like they have no idea where they're going with this. It seems like Warner and DC want us to believe they have things planned out and aren't just making shit up as they go and hoping it works, but that's clearly what they're doing. It's been evident since the whole announcement of Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice if you ask me. Everything they do just seems like they're trying to catch up with Marvel and I can't help but feel we're going to end up with a lot of half assed films rather than good ones.

Even worse, what often happens is that studios execs try to cherrypick their favorite scenes from each script and meld them into one movie. The only reason Aquaman is getting a movie is because it can be set in water. If Hollywood understands one thing, it's epic water CGI.

Totally agreed, DC needs to get their shit together and hire somebody to treat this property with respect, somebody with a vision, like Marc Webb.
