Fleming: Birdman director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu told me he sees superhero movies as right-wing poison and cultural genocide for their simplistic values that stamp out human truths. Warner Bros’ Kevin Tsujihara told Wall Street his slumping film studio will turn around via a full program of 10 DC Comics tent poles to be released 2016-2020.
Will Smith and Tom Hardy are in talks to star in Fury director David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, and 2016 also brings Batman V Superman; 2017 brings Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Justice League; 2018 brings Ezra Miller as The Flash and Jason Momoa as Aquaman; 2019 brings Shazam and Justice League 2; Ray Fisher stars in Cyborg and a Green Lantern reboot arrives for 2020.

Which seems to be yet another controversial casting decision, as Ezra Miller will be portraying Barry Allen/The Flash on the big screen. I'm going to state my reasonings as to why I support him in the role. He's A Talented Actor I'm not familiar with Ezra Miller, so surely Warner Bros saw something in him to end up nabbing the role as Barry Allen/The Flash. Particularly looking at his roles in The Perks of Being A Wallflower and We Need To Talk About Kevin, meaning he's incredibly talented no doubt. I'll be sure to watch those films at some point, in order to get an idea what he'll be like as Barry. I Like The Casting.. Simply Because It's Different I don't expect everyone to like this choice, I get that. But for me this is interesting, seeing similarities in reaction to Jesse Eisenberg being cast as Lex »

Amidst all the DC Comics hooplah that’s got everyone so riled up (Ezra Miller, a solo Cyborg film, the dreaded words: “Part Two”) was a piece of news that was more or less confirmed a month ago: David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad. It’s a project that’s been in discussion for about a year (the words “suicide” and “squad” were first mentioned in reference to Warner Bros. back in December), and last month Ayer was said to be circling the project — meaning he’ll take it, probably, unless a stray tennis ball knocks him out of orbit and towards another gritty WWII tank movie. And when WB put out yesterday’s ten-page rap sheet of upcoming flicks, there was Ayer’s name at number two on the list — right next to a “Suicide Squad” and a “2016.” In case you haven’t seen the Squad pop up on Arrow, the »

Suicide Squad has been listed for a 2016 release on Warner's newly released DC film schedule.
The Suicide Squad are a group of villains and criminals forced by the Us government into service as a disposable black ops team.
They are led by the amoral government operative Dr Amanda Waller.
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...

In the wake of a DC and Marvel official announcement, Badass Digest seems to be making a habit of following it up a few hours later with some more details of their own.
On Wednesday morning U.S. time, Warner Bros. Pictures used an investor meeting to announce they had finally locked down their long rumored slate of movies based on DC Comics properties. The news spawned a lot of press, even though most of it was already long rumored or reported bar some ordering and one key bit of casting - Ezra Miller as The Flash.
Potential "Justice League" Minor Spoilers Ahead
Last week came a report that the end of Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" would include a tease of Brainiac who will serve as the villain for "Justice League Part 1". Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Aquaman and The Flash come together to face »

Justice League Film Series
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice starring Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck is, of course, well on its way and set for a 2016 release. The film will kick off a brand new wave of inter-connected DC films, which the studio clearly hopes will rival the massive success of Marvel’s cinematic universe (Iron Man, Captain America, The Avengers).
Following Batman v. Superman will be a Suicide Squad film directed by David Ayer. The Suicide Squad is a group of imprisoned supervillains forced to work for the government. Previously, the Suicide Squad has been featured on The CW’s Arrow, and the announcement of the film, paired with the announcement of a brand new Flash film in 2018, seems to clearly indicate »
Warner Bros. chairman Kevin Tsujihara announced that they’d be making a feature film about The Flash during Time Warner’s earnings meeting Wednesday, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Tsujihara also announced that Miller had landed the part of the DC Comics superhero. The movie is set to hit theaters in 2018.
Flash is the superhero alter ego of Barry Allen, a young man who has both super speed and reflexes. As a member of the Justice League it stands to reason that Miller will also be appearing in some of the upcoming Justice League movies, the first of which is slated to come out in 2017.
On the small screen, CW launched The Flash TV series this year, »
Warner Bros CEO Kevin Tsuijihara announced the studio's plans for its upcoming superhero films, unveiling a release schedule for its ten new movies from 2016 through 2020. We all know that "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" will hit theaters in 2016. It will then be followed by "Suicide Squad" later that year. Ryan Gosling, Margot Robbie, Will Smith and Tom Hardy are all in talks to star. There will also be a "Justice League" movie, which will be split into two parts. The first will be released in 2017, the second in 2019. According to Tsuijihara, the list doesn't include two other films that are also in development, standalone Superman and Batman movies. Other interesting things is that Ezra Miller will play Flash and Jason Momoa has been confirmed as Aquaman. And even though Wonder Woman will appear in "Batman v Superman" and her own standalone film, it looks like she may not return for "Justice League. »
Warner Bros.' Chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara has outlined an aggressive content strategy for the Studio aimed at increasing profits while "doubling down on outstanding content, working with the best talent and maintaining the culture that makes Warner Bros. so great...", including new stand-alone superhero movies, based on DC Comics characters:
"The demand for high quality video content is growing fast – in the United States and around the world – as new technologies have created new platforms and millions of new connected consumers," said Tsujihara. "The opportunity is huge. And no studio is better positioned to take advantage of it than Warner Bros."
As part of his presentation, Tsujihara announced a bold expansion of the industry’s broadest theatrical slate, built around the largest, most important global franchises. Warner Bros. Pictures will release three Lego-branded films over the next four years, building upon the enormous success of this year's "The Lego Movie »

After Warner Bros. finally revealed their DC Comics lineup earlier today, more details are now coming into place about this shared universe, which kicks off in 2016 with Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We reported last week that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will introduce the villain for Justice League Part 1, but now a new report from Badass Digest reveals who the Justice League Part 2 villain will be. Naturally, there will be spoilers revealed below, so read on at your own risk.
The end of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will introduce Brainiac as the main villain in Justice League Part 1, while bringing in Justice League heroes Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) to join forces with Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). They are said to be uniting to, "face the larger threat that »

The film is set to release in 2017. Additionally, Warner Bros announced “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa, will be released in 2018 and gave the greenlight to a solo “Cyborg” film, to be released in 2020, starring African-American actor Ray Fisher.

Warner Bros. has long been known for relying on big-budget tentpoles to not just carry its film slate but also drive the rest of the company’s businesses. In a revealing meeting with investors on Wednesday, however, company chief Kevin Tsujihara stressed the importance of major brands to Warner Bros.’ bottomline for the next six years, with superheroes, Harry Potter and Lego playing major roles.
Some takeaways from Tsujihara’s announced strategy:
Harry Potter’s World Will Continue to Grow: Warner Bros. plans to release three films based on “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” in 2016, 2018 and 2020, breathing new life into the Harry Potter franchise with its author J.K. Rowling penning those scripts. Not only will the boy wizard’s world remain on the bigscreen, but the movies will continue to fuel interest in the wildly successful “Wizarding World of Harry Potter” theme parks that Warner Bros. oversees and »

Further proving that we are living through the biggest week for superhero-movie news since last week and the week before, Warner Bros. just announced one of the most hilariously aggressive franchise-extension plans in movie history. Between now and 2020, WB plans to release a whopping 13 movies based on DC comic book characters–including two Justice League movies, the long-awaited Wonder Woman film, a movie starring the popular Lego™ Batman character and a movie starring the somewhat less popular Affleck™ Batman character. Now, it's hard to know where this fits into the glorious history of Superhero Franchise announcements. Is this the second »

Today, Warner Bros. officially laid down the gauntlet to Marvel as they announced and named a whole bunch of movies which they’re intending to release all of the way up to 2020. The list of films obviously contain quite a few DC titles, and the big news to come out of the announcement, made by Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara at the Time Warner Investor Day, Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara, was that a movie based on The Flash is set for 2018, starring Ezra Miller (The Perks Of Being A Wallflower), and Jason Momoa will officially play Aquaman in a stand-alone film in the same year.
Before all of that though, the WB will release Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and David Ayer’s Suicide Squad in 2016, a solo Wonder Woman movie starring Gal Gadot in 2017 and Justice League: Part One in the same year, which will be directed by Zack Snyder. »

Well, the hits just keep on coming for Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment today. The studio has announced the dates for a bunch of forthcoming movies with ties to Justice League, they've announced that Ezra Miller is playing The Flash, and that Zack Snyder is directing a two-part Justice League movie. But there's another little detail that's been somewhat overlooked. The studio also has plans for standalone movies for Ben Affleck as Batman and another movie for Henry Cavill as Superman. They haven't been given dates yet, but the press release says they will arrive sometime between 2016 and 2020. Read on! At this point, it's tough to say when these films might end up in theaters. The best move would be to have them happen between Justice League movies most likely, since it would seem anti-climactic to have one of them come after the conclusion of the two-part Justice League arc. »
