Now that Man of Steel has proven to be a success, and a sequel has been given the greenlight, Warner Bros. and DC show no signs of slowing down. Over the next couple of years, we can expect to see a Justice League film, a Batman reboot and likely, another standalone hero film (my bets are on The Flash).
Though details on anything in DC’s future are hazy at best, today, AICN has scoop on when we may be seeing both the Batman reboot (which may be Batman Beyond) and the Justice League film. According to a “corporate document” that they’ve received from an unnamed company, we’ll be seeing both projects in 2015.
With the Warner Bros. panel taking place tomorrow at Comic-Con, we may be hearing more on these two projects in the very near future. Currently, the only films schedules to appear during the panel are Godzilla, 300: Rise of an Empire, Seventh Son, Gravity, The LEGO Movie, and Edge of Tomorrow. That being said, I wouldn’t be surprised if Warner Bros. decides to sneak in some of our favorite heroes. After all, they’re going up against Fox’s X-Men panel and Marvel’s panel, which will include Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and more.
Whatever Warner Bros. decides to do, they need to act fast. The superhero genre is becoming cluttered and so far, Marvel has a massive head start. There are a lot of interesting directions that Wraner Bros. can take the DC Universe in and if executed properly, it can easily rival what Marvel has done. DC has heroes that are just as, if not more exciting than what Marvel has to offer.
Whether it’s Justice League, Batman Beyond or something else entirely, I just want to hear some concrete news on what DC has planned for us.
