Warner Bros.' DC slate rumored to include 'Justice League', 'Shazam' and more

None of this is official yet, but Nikki Finke is typically a pretty reliable source. The infamous Hollywood journalist reported on Thursday that the following release date slate is what Warner Bros. is planning on announcing at Comic-Con. The films reported to be in development and their release dates are as followed:

May 2016- Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice
July 2016- Shazam
December 2016- Sandman
May 2017- Justice League
July 2017- Wonder Woman
December 2017- Flash and Green Lantern Team-Up
May 2018- Man of Steel 2

There were also some other interesting notes in Finke's report. For example, according to her sources, Ryan Reynolds won't be reprising the role of Green Lantern in the future Justice League films. All in all, the studio is putting together the final touches on this slate and will likely announce everything at Comic-Con.

This is quite a bit to take in and is a tad overwhelming when you remember that Marvel will be releasing superhero films during this time as well. My major problem is that because Dawn of Justice will have to set up everything, odds are that it will end up being a mess with too many cameos, too many characters and just too much going on (much like The Amazing Spider-Man 2). However, some of these stand-alone projects seem very interesting. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is spearheading Sandman, so that will surely be an interesting project. And I love the idea of a Flash and Green Lantern team-up movie. I just hope that Warner makes sure that quality comes before quantity.
