As of now, Aquaman is the only DC Comics movie that’s set to go into production for Warner Bros. Pictures this year. However, with a full slate of films announced to be in development, the studio is hoping to get at least one more film in the DC Expanded Universe going in 2017. Since The Batman is now delayed, there are five other possibilities, but which one will get the green light? Let’s sort through our options.

guardians of the galaxy 3

UPDATE: James Gunn has clarified his statements on Guardians of the Galaxy 3 and we have updated the post below.

There are few sure things. The Earth is round. The sky is blue. The Pope is Catholic. Marvel Studios always has another sequel up their sleeve. So when Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn says that there will most definitely be a third film in the comic book space opera series, the big news isn’t that another movie is coming. The big news is that Gunn won’t say whether or not he’s going to make it.

cars theory

We’ve talked before about the weird world of Pixar’s Cars. The universe is filled with sentient automobiles, with no humans in sight. We have birds that look like planes and bugs that look like tiny VW Beatles with wings. It’s madness!

But are the cars in Cars really just automobiles? A new theory suggests that there is more to these amorphized vehicles than meets the eye (and we are not talking about Transformers).

'Transformers: The Last Knight Trailer

Last weekend brought a new clip from Transformers: The Last Knight, not to mention an extended TV spot giving us a peek at baby Dinobots and showing us just how tough the franchise’s young new star, Isabela Moner, is going to be. Now we get a much better look at the Bayhem that’s in store for us this summer with a brand new Transformers The Last Knight trailer.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 - Kurt Russell as Ego the Living Planet

In the Marvel comic book universe, Ego the Living Planet is exactly what his name suggests: he is a literal living planet, with a face and everything, who can travel throughout space and get involved in all kinds of shenanigans. The character will make his cinematic debut in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, where he will be played by actor Kurt Russell, a human being who is not a literal living planet with a face and everything who can travel throughout space and get involved in all kinds of shenanigans. And if you’re wondering how that works, director James Gunn is here to explain the nature of Ego’s powers in his upcoming sequel.

the matrix reboot

The film industry has been all about chasing trends since its earliest days. So when something works, everyone making movies can’t help but pause and take note and wonder “Okay, that’s cool – how do we do that?”

We saw this happen most recently with Marvel Studios and their “shared universe,” where various characters exist under one larger franchise and can influence each other’s movies. It was seismic. Everyone wanted in on that business. And that brings us to a new trend peaking out over the horizon, one that feels very much like a continuation of the shared universe concept: the in-universe spin-off (or whatever everyone decides it should be called).

So let’s take another look at the reboot of The Matrix Warner Bros. is apparently working on right now. In fact, maybe we can throw out the word “reboot,” which is sooo 2005. It’s entirely possible that the studio is eyeing Disney’s new Star Wars model…and that the gears are turning.

Jackson says he loves the John Wick series and wants to be in the third movie. After all, this is the kind of thing we could actually see happen and a boon for the people who actually make these movies. Is there anyone in the world, filmmaker or viewer, who wouldn’t want to see Jackson strut into the world of John Wick and do this thing? No. Of course not. C’mon.
