Warner Bros. has revealed an updated slate for its DC Extended Universe, and the studio has left out some surprising films.
While holding a panel at Comic Con Experience 2017 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Warner Bros. revealed its upcoming DC Comics-based movies that fans can expect to see; this included films that have been expected for a while, and the absence of several key projects.
A Wonder Woman sequel was the first to be presented with a title card, though it opted to not title itself "Wonder Woman 2," leading us to believe the film will ultimately be titled something else. A title card for Aquaman soon followed, which makes sense as it's Warner Bros.' next DC release.
Other title cards displayed at the convention included Flashpoint, Suicide Squad 2, Shazam, Batgirl, Green Lantern Corps, The Batman, and somewhat surprisingly, Justice League Dark. It's possible that these movies are those that have been confirmed to be moving ahead at the studio, with it hoping to redeem itself after the critical and financial failure of Justice League.
The slate leaves out movies including Cyborg, Deathstroke, Gotham City Sirens, Harley Quinn, Joker & Harley Quinn, Nightwing, and the Joker origin movie produced by Martin Scorsese. It could just be that these movies are too early in the development period for the studio to commit just yet.
Arriving December 21, 2018, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Aquaman/Arthur Curry, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Murk, and Michael Beach as Jesse Kane.
