Is This Warner Bros.’ New Slate Of Superhero Films?
Former Deadline head Nikki Finke has spun off on her own and debuted with some very interesting news that may or may not be true. She writes:
I have intel on what is coming up at this July’s Comic-Con from the studio. A lot of stuff remains in flux but my sources have so far:
May 2016 – Batman v Superman
July 2016 – Shazam
Xmas 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 had been talk of a Metal Men and Suicide Squad movie for sometime in 2016 but that project fell off the schedule.
Of course the first thing that comes to mind after reading this list is – SHAZAM BEFORE WONDER WOMAN! Sigh. I’m interested in all of these, some of which we’ve talked about before, but creative teams will make or break them.
Finke goes on to write cameos in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice “will include the already known Cyborg and Flash. Green Lantern [not played by Ryan Reynolds, thank god] may be introduced. And Aquaman will be seen in the Justice League movie. Problem is, Warner Bros Pictures was still negotiating with the actors for those cameos and future roles, meaning major contracts for multiple JL/character films to follow.”
