Rumored DC Comics Movie Lineup Surfaces Online

Justice League by Alex Ross

A reporter by the name of Nikki Finke claims to have the scoop on what Warner Bros. has planned for their future DC Comics movie lineup. Finke recently spilled the beans via her website NikkiFinke.com. According to Finke, Warner Bros. has 6 movies planned after Batman v. Superman all aimed to be released between now and 2018. She says Warner Bros. will announce this list at this year’s San Diego Comic Con.

  • New 52 Justice League by Jim LeeMay 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

Finke also claims that Warner Bros. had plans for a Suicide Squad and a Metal Men movie, but those plans fell through. She adds the Ryan Reynolds will not reprise his role as Green Lantern in the supposed Flash/Green Lantern team-up movie.

Now, who is Nikki Finke you may ask? I had to look this one up myself, but apparently she is “a very influential, ruthless entertainment industry blogger,” according to The Washington Post. “She quickly became known for her scoops and breaking news stories (always accompanying items that she had called weeks earlier with the headline “TOLDJA!”) about everything from the minutiae of Hollywood agencies to long, detailed, weekend box office reports.”

As of today there is no confirmation from Warner Bros. or DC Entertainment that these claims are true. However, let’s just imagine this is their plan for the future of their DC movies. Personally, I have a problem with this lineup for three reasons.

First, Shazam getting his own movie before Wonder Woman just seems wrong to me. As much as I love Shazam, there’s no reason this character should take precedence over one of DC’s most iconic superheroes. Second, in regards to female superheroes, Wonder Woman is the only one I see on this list. Warner Bros. has a slew of amazing female characters to choose from and doing so would give them a head start on Marvel, who still have yet to produce a solo female superhero movie. Third, three movies in one year? That’s a little too much. I prefer quality over quantity and this list suggests Warner Bros prefers the latter.

Lastly, I have concerns about the supposed Flash/Green Lantern team-up movie. All I have to say is, if they’re going to make a Flash movie in 2017, they better bring Grant Gustin on board.

As stated previously, this information has not been confirmed. We will know for sure next month during San Diego Comic Con, but until then what do you think about this scoop? Would this DC movie lineup satisfy you? Let us know in the comments.
