For her big return to the internet, former Deadline Hollywood editor Nikki Finke came out swinging by revealing what her sources tell her is Warner Bros’ San Diego Comic-Con announcement, and it’s big.
Apparently, WB is going to lay out their plan for very quickly building the DC film universe with three films a year, starting in 2016 with “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
Much of what Finke revealed has been rumored for some time, but never put into such concrete terms. So while we can’t confirm whether you’ll see a Flash-Green Lantern team-up in 2017, we can tell you everything we know for sure about the rumored films.
“Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” – May 2016
“Shazam” – July 2016
The project showed signs of new life when it was mentioned in a Wall Street Journal article about upcoming DC and Vertigo adaptations that are unconnected to the Justice League. There’s no telling at this point whether Segal or the Rock remain attached.
“Sandman” – Christmas 2016
If Finke is correct, that’s no longer the case, and we could be seeing the directorial follow-up to “Don Jon” in late 2016.
“Justice League” – May 2017
“Wonder Woman” – July 2017
Flash and Green Lantern Team-Up – Christmas 2017
“Man of Steel 2” – May 2018
“Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” opens in theaters on May 6, 2016.
