Warner Bros unveils huge DC plans

Warner has unveiled some huge plans for its DC universe, confirming solo movies for The Flash and Wonder Woman, casting Ezra Miller in the former, and announcing that Zack Snyder will direct two Justice League movies.

In a glut of headline-making revelations, the studio outlined a whole raft of future plans, with Suicide Squad confirmed as the first DC movie to follow Batman V Superman , set to arrive in 2017 with David Ayer directing.

That will be followed by a Wonder Woman solo movie later that year, before Zack Snyder takes the helm of the first Justice League movie, with the second pencilled in for 2019.

Sandwiched in between those two films in 2018 will be The Flash , headed up by Ezra Miller in the title role, and Aquaman , starring Jason Momoa.

2019 will see the arrival of the Dwayne Johnson-starring Shazam , before the final entries on the DC slate land in 2020, in the form of a Cyborg movie and a Green Lantern reboot.

And is if all that wasn't enough, the studio also confirmed that both Batman and Superman will also be getting solo films at some point down the track.

In other Warner Bros news, it was also confirmed that there would be three LEGO movies between now and 2018, with The LEGO Movie 2 following The LEGO Batman Movie and Ninjago . Plus, Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them will be at least a trilogy of films . The first part, directed by Potter 's David Yates, opens in 2016.

A huge amount to process then, but quite the statement of intent from a studio that had seemingly been struggling to match Marvel’s forward planning. Over to you, Feige…
