Has anyone else seen the rumoured DC film schedule that has appeared online?Im not so convinced that its genuine as according to the schedule DC will be releasing 3 films a year starting in 2016 which seems an awful big amount of films for them to do being doing each year and also doesn't mention films like Justice League Dark which has also been rumored before!

I think I will wait to see what is officially announced at Comic Con but I wouldn't be suprised if this list of films turns out to be false!

Saw this story a few days ago and suspected it was mostly bull.

Anyhow, here it is:

May 2016 - BATMAN V. SUPERMAN
July 2016 - SHAZAM
Xmas 2016 - SANDMAN
May 2017 - JUSTICE LEAGUE
July 2017 - WONDER WOMAN
XMAS 2017 - UNTITLED GREEN LANTERN/THE FLASH TEAM-UP
MAY 2018 - MAN OF STEEL 2

First thought was just how much bloody money will Warners be shovelling into this if true? I'd heard stories prior to this about how some of the majors have all their tentpoles pencilled in till at least 2020, but this is a lot more specific.

As you say, let's wait to see what they say themselves. Considering all the fannying about after Man of Steel (perhaps) underperformed I'm a bit skeptical about plans as huge as this.

I thought DC would just start with Batman Vs Superman then following it up with the Justice League before moving onto other films!

It also seems strange to have a Flash/Green Lantern team up film when DC have already got a Flash tv show about to launch.So DC would have two different actors playing the Flash at the same time!

Well DC have managed to be a Sucess with TV shows like Arrow and with upcoming shows like Flash and Gotham so it seems strange that they struggle so badly with films.Hopefully they can change that in the future!

Well director Kevin Smith is saying that this DC film schedule is correct and it's the one that has seen before!

DC will have to try quite hard to match the awfulness of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Gave it go a while back and 20 mins was enough.

Oh well, it must be true if that blowhard says so!

It's not like there's a single "DC" entity that's responsible for writing and producing Arrow and for the films. Success with one does not mean there should be success with another.

It did improve as it went on, especially once it got to the Captain America tie-in. Did start off very poor, though...

Yeah Agents Of SHIELD did improve greatly but its unfortantly that quite a few have given up on it.You are right that the same people are not doing Arrow and the films which maybe a problem especially as Arrow tends to embrace the DC universe with other characters being introduced like the Sucide Squad etc.I still hope that they link the tv shows and the films together even though it's very unlikely!

Well, we can cross that one off the "Good" list then.

It's disappointing that the Affleck version of Batman isn't getting a solo film.

Affleck may yet get his own Batman film as DC have yet to confirm their schedule as they didn't announce anything this weekend at Comic Con.I just wonder how long they will leave it before they announce their future plans!

Probably never. They'll be weary of ending up like Sony and having to push back all their dates for Spider-man due to failure at the box office.

Wouldn't surprise me if Warner Bros. were playing a game and holding slots they want for other films, but using potentially big titles to ensure nobody else tries to schedule against them.

Yeah properly and Marvel have already announced their film schedule as well so they can avoid going up against each either as that doesn't help either of them!

That's why BVS was moved to March to avoid going up against Cap 3!

Nobody been announced yet but with The Rock as Black Adam I wouldn't be suprised if they went for an unknown as Shazam!

The Rock is likely to steal the film in a Jack Nicholson as The Joker type way. They'll need to find a good unknown to play against him.

Warner Bros. are also releasing the film under the New Line Cinema subsidiary so it may be part of the larger DCCU but be a self contained story, hence why it may be the film directly after Justice League. Its interesting the The Rock used the Antihero hashtag maybe it will be a solo film with him but then again who would be the villain. We'll hopefully find out soon!

Well reports now that David Ayer is being lined up to direct a Sucide Squad film which would be an interesting choice for a film although they have already appeared in Arrow!

To be fair, DC haven't even confirmed whether or not Arrow and The Flash will be in the DC Cinematic Universe, but you'd assume they will be...
