Everyone knew Jason Momoa was Aquaman. The trades reported it, Zack Snyder talked about the character, and Momoa teased it, but no one would confirm it officially until Warner Bros. made a move. That finally happened last week, when the full DC Comics schedule was revealed. Momoa will play Aquaman in two Justice League movies and in a solo movie due in 2018. He’s also likely to appear in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Because the news is out there, Momoa can finally talk about the role, and he’s got some good things to say. At a recent convention, the Game of Thrones actor talked about respecting the secrecy of the project, the honor he feels in playing the role because of his Polynesian heritage and what he thinks the solo movie might be about. Read the new Jason Momoa Aquaman quotes below. Read More »
The Warner Bros. DC Movie slate is set. From Batman v Superman in 2016 through Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman, The Flash, a two part Justice League movie, Aquaman, Shazam, Cyborg and Green Lantern in 2020, that’s a whole lot of spandex on the big screen for the rest of this decade.
However, the press release also says this. “Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema will release a slate of at least 10 movies—as well as stand-alone Batman and Superman films—from 2016 through 2020 that expands this prized universe of characters.”
So in that time frame, if things go according to plan, not only are we getting the ten movies mentioned above, but new Batman and Superman solo movies too. Read More »
Warner Bros. did its big shareholder talk this morning, and took the opportunity to drop some big release date info. The biggest is the studio’s upcoming plans for superhero films, and massive DC movie plans were revealed.
Suicide Squad will be the first DC film to follow Batman v Superman, with a plan for release in 2016. Then things get really big. In 2017 we’ll see Wonder Woman and Justice League, with 2018 bringing The Flash (with Ezra Miller starring) and Aquaman. In 2019 WB plans Shazam and Justice League 2.
Finally, studio head Kevin Tsujihara says there are plans coming together for Cyborg (played by Ray Fisher in Batman v Superman), a Green Lantern reboot, and additional standalone Batman and Superman films. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Rumors have said that Darkseid, DC’s inter -dimensional villain who inspired Thanos over at Marvel, might be the bad guy for the upcoming Justic League film. Now a new rumor changes that up, saying that the League will instead ally against Braniac. (Though there’s no reason we couldn’t see both in the film in some way.) Along with that info, there’s rumor on the lineup of DC’s upcoming Suicide Squad film, though anyone who read the late ’80s incarnation of that comic won’t be surprised by the roster. Read More »

UPDATE: ScreenCrush points out these domains were actually registered over 10 years ago.
Though Zack Snyder wowed San Diego Comic-Con earlier this summer with footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, fans were expecting something else. They were expecting an outline of what Warner Bros. has in store for their DC Comics movies over the next few years. Instead, a version of that announcement came a few weeks later when the company announced release dates for nine upcoming DC Comics movies. Unfortunately, those dates were all for untitled films.
If we’re to believe the wonderful world of domain registration, those titles should be coming soon. Warner Bros. just registered websites for four DC Comics movies we’re all been pretty sure are coming: Justice League, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Shazam. Read More »
The biggest news this week came from Warner Bros, who gave release dates to ten upcoming DC Comics movies through 2020. Nine of those are untitled and the first, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, will be out March 25, 2016. While untitled, we have a pretty good idea what a few of those movies are going to be. Justice League is a lock. Wonder Woman has a good shot. Shazam is a strong possibility and a few others.
Fortunately Dan Fellman, Warner Bros.’ president of domestic distribution, spoke to Entertainment Weekly and said some of the titles will officially be announced later this month. He also commented on the seemingly strange strategy of opening a massive blockbuster in March and teased that Justice League might follow Dawn of Justice quickly. Read about the potential Justice League release date and more below. Read More »
