DC Announces New Roster of Films to Include Shazam, Flashpoint, Green Lantern Corps, and More!

At San Diego Comic Con, Warner Bros. filled fans in on what to expect from the DC Cinematic Universe! And this roster… it filled up mighty quick.

Among many announcements for the continuing cinematic slate, there was an updated list of films that DC has in the works going forward. They were:

  • Shazam
  • Suicide Squad 2
  • The Batman
  • Justice League Dark
  • Flash Point
  • Wonder Woman 2
  • Green Lantern Corps
  • Batgirl

A few of these titles had already been confirmed or hinted at, including Shazam (which will star Dwayne Johnson in the titular role), Batgirl (directed by Joss Whedon), and Justice League Dark, but there were a number of surprises, among them being Flash Point and Green Lantern Corps.

It seems likely that the Flashpoint storyline from the 2011 comics will serve as Barry Allen’s (mostly) solo Flash film, allowing WB to bring in other members of the Justice League for cameos; the Flashpoint arc centered around Barry Allen being the only person aware of the fact that the timeline of their world had significantly altered, leaving him to try and repair the damage. Green Lantern Corps is a unique way of finally bringing the Green Lantern into the DCU, while also offering up the potential for a space-faring story.

We’ll add more information as it comes up, but what do you think of this roster? Any titles that you’re particularly excited for?
