Despite all the negative headlines going on about Batman V Superman – deserved or not – and the rumours that Warners and DC may be rethinking the DC Cinematic Universe, it looks like there’s no truth to it as a new announcement shows confidence in the universe.
The Wonder Woman movie, originally set for June 23rd, 2017 is now set for June 2nd, 2017 and the studio, which already had a full DC Slate with Suicide Squad (August 5, 2016), The Flash (March 16, 2018), The Justice League Part One (Nov. 17, 2017),Aquaman (July 27, 2018), Shazam! (April 5, 2019), Justice League Part Two (June 14, 2019) and Cyborg (April 3, 2020), have now added two untitled DC Movies to their list.
The new movies are set for October 5th, 2018 and November 1st, 2019. Anyone want to bet one of these in The Batman?
There’s also an untitled WB event film is slated for October 6th, 2017.
In related news, the studio has moved Andy Serkis’ Jungle Book back a full year from October 6th, 2017, to October 19th, 2018, Director Serkis said: “I’m absolutely thrilled that Warner Brothers have changed the delivery date of our movie. The ambition for this project is huge. What we are attempting is an unprecedented level of psychological and emotional nuance in morphing the phenomenal performances of our cast into the facial expressions of our animals.”
So he’s happy at least. This is not to be confused with the Disney Jungle Book movie which arrives next week.
