Report: ‘Justice League’ Slated for May 2017, ‘Wonder Woman’ and More on the Way
Comic-Con 2014 is just around the corner, which means lots of big announcements are on the way. While Marvel has certainly been on top of their game as far as carefully planning the phases of their superhero properties, we’ve wondered exactly what DC and Warner Bros.’ game plan was for the next few years, now that they’ve got ‘Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ in motion. Now, new reports have emerged regarding WB’s upcoming slate of comic book movies, including ‘Justice League,’ a ‘Wonder Woman‘ solo movie, and a Green Lantern and Flash team-up.
Over at the newly-launched NikkiFinke.com, the former Deadline boss reports that WB will be announcing the dates of several new comic book movies at this summer’s Comic-Con, including the previously announced ‘Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ scheduled for May of 2016, which will give them an ‘Avengers’-like lead-in to ‘Shazam‘ (set for July 2016), ‘Justice League’ (set for May 2017), ‘Wonder Woman’ (in July 2017) and more.
Also worth noting is that El Mayimbe of Latino Review confirms ‘Justice League’ for May 2017.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s ‘Sandman‘ is on the alleged schedule, as well, set for release in the Christmas season of 2016, while the end of 2017 will reportedly see a Green Lantern and Flash team-up movie, though we obviously won’t be seeing the return of Ryan Reynolds as Lantern.
Finally, in May of 2018, we’ll get ‘Man of Steel 2,’ though that seems like a long ways away for another solo Superman flick. It’s great to see DC and Warner Bros. stepping it up, though we’re particularly intrigued with Gordon-Levitt’s ‘Sandman’ and the solo ‘Wonder Woman’ film.
