It looks like DC films have a big future ahead on both the small and big screen.

DC Films boss Walter Hamada has revealed in a new interview that as many as four DC movies will be hitting cinemas each year, starting in 2022 with other movies arriving on HBO Max.

These HBO Max movies will focus on what Hamada calls “riskier characters like Batgirl and Static Shock will arrive exclusively on HBO Max.”

Fans will know that both these characters have movies at different stages of production with Static Shock being developed by Michael B Jordan (here) and the Batgirl movie always popping up in conversation about future DC movies (here) although it actually was in development with Avengers director Joss Whedon set to helm before his version of Justice League became a financial and critical disaster.

Hamada also confirmed that, as with the upcoming Peacemaker series (here) based on The Suicide Squad, moving forward, “With every movie that we’re looking at now, we are thinking, ‘What’s the potential Max spinoff?'”

Hamada goes on to discuss that not all their movies will be connected, much like last year’s Joker, and they will exist within the DC Multiverse: “I don’t think anyone else has ever attempted this.

“But audiences are sophisticated enough to understand it. If we make good movies, they will go with it.”\

Personally, I like comic book movies being interconnected but with DC developing their Multiverse, the idea of numerous movies on the big screen as well as on the small screen along with related series has me pretty excited.

What say you all? I want to hear what you all think about this.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
