Despite plenty of announced films outide of its initial slate -- including Gotham City Sirens, Booster Gold, Nightwing, Black Adam, Man of Steel 2 and Batgirl, to name just a few -- Warner Bros. and DC Films only have two movies in the can past the pre-production stage: Justice League, due in theaters November, and Aquaman, set for release next year. It's a far longer wait for a DC Comics-based movie than it is for a Marvel film these days -- but that looks to change in the very near future, if a new rumor is to be believed.
Speaking on the Heroic Insider video podcast, Heroic Hollywood and The Wrap's Umberto Gonzalez hinted that the DC Extended Universe could see three to four films released per year. "A lot of people have been asking me 'What's the next movie in 2018?'" Gonzalez said. "I know for a fact that DC is trying to get three to four movies made a year going forward."
As for when fans can expect the announcement of a new DC Films slate, Gonzalez said to keep all eyes on San Diego's Comic-Con International when the studio brings its hotly-anticipated Hall H presentation. "If I were you guys, I'd make sure I'd be inside Hall H this summer," he teased.
Arriving Nov. 17, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta and J. K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
