Earlier this month, Warner Bros. and DC backed off from a potential heavyweight bout with Marvel’s Captain America 3 by changing the release date of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and also gave us a list of dates for scheduled movies between 2016 and 2020. There were ten movie release dates listed, but the movies themselves were left anonymous as the internet quickly speculated based on what little information we had. We know Dawn of Justice as well as a Justice League are in the works, that’s about it.
Well, we were just given our first substantial bit of information that will help us fill in our brackets. Warner Bros. has recently registered four new domains:
As of right now, the four domains redirect to Warner Bros. main website.
As I mentioned, we had already known about the Justice League movie, but it is good to see the first steps being taken to get Wonder Woman her fist solo movie, which will star Gal Gadot as the Amazonian princess. Gadot, reportedly, has a three-picture deal; Dawn of Justice, Justice League, and a solo film will make up the three. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has teased several times, now, his involvement in a possible Shazam movie, and given this information I assume that we will be hearing some news about that very soon. The big stunner is Aquaman; the character’s involvement in the DC Cinematic Universe was rumored for months before we finally learned that Jason Momoa would be playing the king of the sea. He has not been the topic of many talks regarding a solo movie since the inception of the DCCU, but it seems that Warner Bros. and DC have faith that Momoa can carry a major motion picture and bring the character back to his former greatness.
While the registering of domains doesn’t confirm that WB and DC are 100% working on these titles, some companies register domains to prevent others from owning them in the future, in this case it seems highly likely that we will see each of these films in theaters at some point between 2016 and 2020.
A massive injection of nerd!
