With the Marvel universe already in shape and a lot of other ones on the way, Warner Bros and DC have set the course for the next six years on what movies they want to bring out and what characters are getting their own stories.
The news broke during a Warner Bros. shareholder's call that revealed the schedule for the next DC/WB movies that will follow 2016's Batman v Superman.
The schedule now includes an August 2016 date for the Suicide Squad movie, directed by Fury director David Ayer, which will follow the Batman and Superman team-up. Following that in 2017 will be a Wonder Woman standalone movie with Justice League following that later in the year.
For 2018, Ezra Miller will be taking on the main role in The Flash movie with Jason Momoa's Aquaman coming later in the year for a standalone movie. In 2019, Shazam with Dwayne Johnson will be released and Justice League 2 follows later that year.
Finally, in 2020, comes a Cyborg movie with Ray Fisher, who will first appear in Batman v Superman, leading it and a Green Lantern reboot coming later in the year.
Warner Bros. is clearly going all-in on the Marvel style universe and is going a step further than that studio in revealing all of the work that is on the way up to 2020. It is nice to see characters like Wonder Woman getting a standalone movie and many fans will be happy to have Green Lantern rebooted after the backlash of the Ryan Reynolds movie.
Zack Snyder, who is directing both Batman v Superman and Justice League, will also return to direct the sequel of the team-up.
