While Wonder Woman is currently making an impact on the world with brightness & hope on the big screen, the future of the DC Extended universe is quite a bit murky. Following the Amazon warrior’s current film the only other films on the schedule for the shared universe are November’s Justice League and next December’s Aquaman.
While films like Shazam, Cyborg, The Flash and Green Lantern Corps have been films in various stages of production for years currently none of them seem to be moving closer to a release.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the next films that will reportedly be produced & released on the screen after the two that are already known are Justice League Dark/Dark Universe and Batgirl.
While the dark mystical heroes film has been in the works for many many years, with Guillermo del Toro originally attached to the film before leaving, the Joss Whedon led Batgirl is relatively new to the discussion of the DCEU. In fact it was just announced earlier in the year.
Justice League Dark/Dark Universe is an interesting case for moving forward since it just recently lost its director Doug Liman. Reportedly the studio is close to securing a replacement so that the film starring Constantine, Zatanna, Deadman, Swamp Thing and others can move forward.
This begs the question of where the films listed up above as well as The Batman, Suicide Squad 2, Gotham City Sirens and the talked about Man of Steel and Wonder Woman sequels will end up falling on the calendar.
In 2014 Warner Bros. came out with a bold schedule of films for the DCEU but following the critical/audience receptions to Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad their plans have seemed to be in constant flux. Losing several directors for projects like The Flash likely hasn’t helped nail down firm release dates for films.
While they are reported as the next films, there are no release dates set for Batgirl or Justice League Dark.
