Get your popcorn, and a really big drink, because there will be at least a dozen DC Entertainment movies between now and 2020. Also coming are more Lego Movies, and three films in the Harry Potter spin-off series Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Announced today to Warner Brother shareholders by WB CEO Kevin Tsujihara during the company’s shareholder meeting.
2 films a year, beginning in 2016 with Batman v. Superman Dawn for Justice, have been confirmed to be in development over the following 5 years.
2016 – BvS, and The Suicide Squad.
A Suicide Squad film, while always in the mix, there had been very little chatter about it actually going before cameras this soon. Most folks (myself included) figured the Shazam! movie, featuring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, would be the movie joining the Man of Steel follow-up in theatres in 2016. According to Tsujihara, the project has four A-list stars in talks to star in it, and directed by David Ayer, Tsujihara called it “a gritty story of a team of supervillains who take on black ops missions for the U.S. government.”
