As you know, Major Spoilers isn’t big on reporting rumors just to get eyeballs to pages in an attempt to boost numbers. However, when it comes to Nikki Finke, I’m more inclined to believe her sources than any other. With her new website launch, she’s dropped a bomb that should squash any rumors that Warner Bros. and DC are dragging their superhero movie feet.
According to the website, Warner Bros. is set to announce not two, but eight movies to release over the next four years.
May 2016 – Batman v Superman
July 2016 – Shazam
Xmas 2016 – Sandman
May 2017 – Justice League
July 2017 – Wonder Woman
Xmas 2017 – Flash and Green Lantern team-up
May 2018 – Man Of Steel 2
That’s quite the lineup and very ambitious if true. According to Finke, the reason for the big delay is the WB is busy finalizing contracts and schedules for all of the actors involved. Seeing Shazam, Wonder Woman, Flash, and a freakin’ team-up movie it sounds like Warner Bros. has their work cut out for them, and fans have something to look forward to.
Now the big question – Do you believe it? Finke has tagged this as a San Diego Comic Con announcement, so we only have a month to go to see how it plays out.
