DC Plants Flag on Dates for Nine Superhero Movies Through 2020

Now it’s DC Entertainment’s turn to plant the flag on dates for untitled superhero movies through 2020.

Warner Bros. on Wednesday announced dates for nine new DC movies, starting in 2016, giving the studio two DC-based properties in theaters each year, beginning with”Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” out March 25, 2016.

While no titles were revealed, the six-year plan is the first major orchestrated push by DC and WB to get more of their iconic superheroes on the bigscreen since Diane Nelson moved from the “Harry Potter” franchise to take control of DC Entertainment in 2009. Shortly thereafter, plans for “Man of Steel” were announced in 2010.

The companies already have discussed plans for a sequel to “Man of Steel,” a “Justice League” film, and individual outings for Wonder Woman, played by Gal Gadot.

But with “Dawn of Justice” set to feature other Justice League heroes like Aquaman and Cyborg, and the Flash and Green Lantern are also key members, it’s a given those characters could also get their own movies. Other characters like Shazam are also being considered for tentpole, while non-superhero properties like Neil Gaiman’s “The Sandman,” are also in the works.

Early last month rival Marvel Studios and Disney locked down dates for five untitled Marvel movies starting with July 27, 2017 and running through May 3, 2019. The other dates are Nov. 3, 2017, July 6, 2018 and Nov. 2, 2018.
