The films that have been released within the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been met with much praise from fans, but Warner Bros. Entertainment may be slowly trying to get their act together with its DC Extended Universe projects. The studio is reportedly planning to increase the number of new films it's going to be releasing in the coming years. As it stands, the studio is experiencing some minor issues with its upcoming films, but that may be changing as the studio is now planning to ramp up its production.
According to a report from Den of Geek, a reporter from Variety has now revealed that Warner Bros. may be looking to increase their output for the year by adding yet another DC Extended Universe film for production alongside the upcoming "Aquaman" movie. As per a report from Batman News, Justin Kroll posted several tweets on his Twitter account revealing that Warner is currently deciding on which particular movie they will be producing this year.
The choices include "Gotham City Sirens," "Green Lantern," "Suicide Squad 2" and "Dark Universe." Whatever film the studio will decide on will apparently be shot this year alongside "Aquaman," which is scheduled to start shooting in May.
With BATMAN likely shooting in 2018, WB still would like one more DC property to shoot this year other than AQUAMAN

The 5 films being considered are SIRENS, FLASH, LANTERN, SQUAD 2 and DARK UNIVERSE. — Justin Kroll (@krolljvar) March 16, 2017
"Suicide Squad 2" will see the return of the entire cast of the first film and will reportedly be written by "Legend of Tarzan" scribe, Adam Cozad. "Gotham City Sirens" on the other hand will be a spin-off movie starring Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn alongside Catwoman and Poison Ivy. Poison Ivy is rumored to be played by actress Megan Fox.
"Dark Universe," or otherwise known as "Justice League Dark," will reportedly have "Edge of Tomorrow" director, Doug Liman, at the helm. Liman will be replacing Guillermo del Toro, who was actually on board the project since 2013. The team, at least in the comics, is comprised mainly of supernatural superheroes such as John Constantine, Madame Xanadu, Deadman, Shade, the Changing Man and Zatanna.
As of the moment, Warner Bros. has not yet announced which of the properties they will be choosing to film this year as they are apparently still weighing their options. Nevertheless, things are obviously looking up for the DC Extended Universe as fans will likely get to see more movies come out in the coming years.
