The identity of a quartet of DC movies might just have been revealed, courtesy of domain name registrations....
This feels like the old days. A few years back, getting clues to the identity of movies by spotting which domain names a studio had registered was a regular sport. Less so now perhaps, but it's via this methodology that, for instance, we learned that the last James Bond film was going to be called Skyfall, in advance of the official announcement.
Well, Flickering Myth has uncovered four new domain name registrations on behalf of Warner Bros that seem to suggest the identity of a quartet of upcoming DC movies. They don't offer huge surprises, but the four domains in question are JusticeLeagueFilm.com, ShazamMovie.com, WonderWomanTheMovie.com and AquamanMovie.com.
Those four do tally with previous rumoured projects (our understanding is that the Shazam movie for a start is edging closer »
There have been a lot of rumors about Warner Bros' upcoming slate of superhero films. The studio has yet to confirm anything, but there have been promises that an official announcement will soon be made. It seems that Warner Bros wasn't lying, because we're now seeing a plan being executed in the form of registering domain names. Tech Times has learned that the studio just registered JusticeLeagueFilm.com, ShazamMovie.com, WonderWomanTheMovie.com, and AquamanMovie.com. We already know that "Justice League" is in development. "Wonder Woman" is all but greenlit and Dwayne Johnson has been strongly hinting that "Shazam" is in the works. And just recently, it was reported that the studio hired Will Beall (Gangster Squad) and Kurt Johnstad (300) to write separate "Aquaman" scripts. »
Take it from me, owner of XMenDaysOfFuturePast.com and XMenApocalypseMovie.com, it's important to buy out somewhere on the web to host your films long before someone like me realizes what's going on. That seems to be what DC and Warner Brothers are doing for their upcoming DC Cinematic Universe.
According to Tech Times, Warner Bros has snatched up:
Which are the four films we've heard rumors of, with Dwayne Johnson talking about Shazam and two writers being tasked with writing two Aquaman scripts. Wonder Woman is a given considering the Gal Godot version has been fated to be the first Wonder Woman iteration to hit the big screen and Justice League is the lynchpin...maybe. It's certainly expected.
Anyway. I'm very sad I didn't act fast enough to direct AquamanMovie.com to a funny Gif or something. »
Update: Looks like we're all in a tizzy over nothing. We reported that these registrations were old, but we didn't realize how old. ComicBook.com is reporting that the studio has held WonderWomanTheMovie.com since 1999, while ShazamMovie.com and AquamanMovie.com were picked up in 2001. So it does point to their plans, just their really old, out of date plans. Carry on. Here is our original story:
The geek world is buzzing over news that last year Warner Bros. registered domain names for movies about the Justice League, Wonder Woman, Shazam, and Aquaman. The domain names, which are JusticeLeagueFilm.com, WonderWomanTheMovie.com, ShazamMovie.com, and AquamanMovie.com, all redirect to the studio’s main page.
None of this is exactly groundbreaking news. The studio has claimed a slew of release dates for unannounced movies, we already knew that Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice would introduce various superheroes to »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will deliver the very first silver screen team up of the World’s Finest. Add in Wonder Woman and now you have the debut of DC’s hallowed Trinity. Having the “Big Three” all on the same screen in the same feature film is a dream for sure, but it’s also fallen into the category of too good to be true for some fans.
Yes, the movie will arrive on March 25, 2016, but many fans are still concerned over what the final product will be and what it could mean for the DC cinematic universe to which it is supposed to give birth. To care is to worry and fans care deeply for their DC superheroes, especially the Trinity that provides the foundation for the Justice League.
DC Comics fans have spent years of their lives emotionally investing in and loving these »

Warner Bros. Pictures has reportedly just registered websites for four DC Comics movies in the works according to Tech Times.
The registrations would indicate Justice League, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Shazam are part of their immediate plans. Specifically the company just registered the following domains: JusticeLeagueFilm.com, ShazamMovie.com, WonderWomanTheMovie.com, and AquamanMovie.com. All four sites currently redirect to the Warner Bros. Pictures official homepage.
The studio announced release dates for nine upcoming DC Comics movies a while back, all were for untitled projects. This would seem to lock down titles for almost half of those, though when these projects will be "officially announced" is unknown at this point. »

Over the past year or so, DC Comics and Warner Bros have been accelerating their entry into the connecting franchise game. What started out as a sequel to 2013's lukewarm blockbuster Man Of Steel turned into the beefed up Justice League prequel we now call Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, which promises to introduce heroes that we've never seen in cinematic outings before. One such hero that's been dangled before our eyes is Aquaman, and though we're still lacking an official confirmation, we have another back-channel clue that the son of Atlantis will rise from the seas and onto movie screens. Flickering Myth brought the news forward that Warner Bros is registering internet domains for four potential projects that the DC Continuum could use in any of its multiple near-future release dates. While Shazam, Wonder Woman, and Justice League are not as surprising . considering how far they've gotten with »
DC Comics has always had a special place in its heart for the teen sidekicks and since the 1960s, there have been numerous books dedicated to their collaborative efforts. Little wonder then, that Cartoon Network would want series based on Teen Titans and Young Justice. While the former reduced them to far younger incarnations, the latter took the Peter David-written comic and expanded its scope in vastly satisfying ways. Young Justice ran a mere two seasons but retains an ardent fan following so it’s nice to see the entire first season out now as a two-disc Blu-ray package.
The show was developed for the cable channel by former DC assistant editor Greg Weisman, who discovered his forte with animation as witnessed by the wild success of his Gargoyles. Here, he’s partnered with Brandon Vietti, no stranger to translating comics to cartoons. Their premise takes the teens – Robin, »

To date, we only know for sure that 2016 will see the release of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and 2018 will be the debut of Justice League. We know Warner Bros has plans for the DC Cinematic Universe for years to come, but what those specific titles are is still a mystery. While Dwayne Johnson has all but confirmed he will be starring in a Shazam movie, we are left with best guesses for the other movies. Flickering Myth has discovered that Warner Bros has registered four domain names »

Is mega-producer Joel Silver planning to take his long-planned “Escape From New York” reboot even further in the same “team” direction as “The Avengers,” “X-Men” and the upcoming “Justice League” movie? A new report from popular sci-fi site Starlog claims that the most recent draft of the script, which has “always had a team dynamic to it,” has elevated several former supporting characters to “co-leads,” perhaps in response to the current blockbuster marketplace. The screenplay is now said to find iconic antihero Snake Plissken flanked by returning mates Cabbie, a schizophrenic travel guide who serves as comic relief, and Brain, »

Two worlds collide again in DC Comics’ event graphic novel Forever Evil. The book collects all seven action-packed issues of the limited series. Although many might say they’ve tread familiar ground before through Grant Morrison’s Jla: Earth 2, there’s a lot of intrigue and excitement to take in here.
Reports are coming in from all corners of the world that the Justice League is no more. A villainous group calling themselves the Crime Syndicate claim responsibility for their demise and ownership of the Earth. The surviving super heroes must join forces with a formidable army of foes fronted by a man who can't be trusted. His name is Lex Luthor and he's leading the Legion of Doom to battle alongside our planet's greatest protectors.

Jason Fabok has been one of the most exciting artists in DC's line-up, mostly sticking with Bat-related titles for the past four years. Well, that's set to change. The Batman Eternal and Batman: The Dark Knight artist will become the ongoing artist on writer Geoff Johns' Justice League starting with issue #36, replacing Ivan Reis and Joe Prado. Buzzfeed spoke to the artist, who shared his excitement of taking on the project. "To have the opportunity to draw the next chapter in [Johns'] Justice League saga is an extreme joy and overwhelming to consider," he said. "I’ve always dreamed of drawing Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Flash, Lex Luthor, Aquaman and the myriad of super-villains that comprise the Justice League books. Geoff has such an awesome story crafted and I can’t wait for fans to see what he has in store in the coming months. It’s going to get epic! »
A redesigned version of “Batman: The Ride” is planned for Six Flags Fiesta Texas, while “Justice League: Battle for Metropolis” will debut at Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags St. Louis. The attractions are expected to be open by the peak summer theme park going season.
“Batman: The Ride” will provide riders with the feeling of weightlessness as they fly outside the confines of a traditional roller coaster track. The attraction is considered the first coaster that includes six head-over-heels flips. The coaster also features a 120-foot tall hill, two 90-degree drops and a Bruce Wayne-Batman-themed queue line »

Warner Bros. may seem to be have franchise-building problems, if only because of the Justice League stuff, but otherwise the studio is doing just fine. It's continuing to churn out Harry Potter, Hobbit and Mad Max movies that we actually want to see, and recently it gave us the beginnings of new Godzilla and Lego movie series. Again, that we're actually looking forward to seeing more of. The next hopeful franchise the studio is going for is Acme, as in the fictional company from the Looney Tunes animated universe (that we've noted in the past would be a fun place to intern at). Warner Bros. is moving forward with a live-action/CG hybrid that will star Steve Carell and center on a warehouse, presumably filled with anvils and rocket-powered roller skates and...

We may be in the golden age of superhero cinema, but here are some DC movies that never made it…
Naysayers would have you believe that Hollywood chucks bucket-loads of cash at any old comic book movie pitch that happens to float through their corner-office window, get stuck to their shoe or come to them miraculously as an on-the-toilet epiphany.
However, this is not the case, particularly with DC comics characters. While some films that do get made may seem like bog-fodder (oh hey, Green Lantern), there are plenty of comic adaptation pitches, in-development scripts and passion projects that have ended up not getting made for various reasons.
We had a rummage through the aeons of DC cinema history (also known as extensive Googling) and pulled together all the comic book movie projects we could find that ended up in the bin of crushed dreams for Batman, Superman and more. »
