Earlier this week, we reported that Warner Bros. has is responding to the success of Marvel’s The Avengers by gearing up for their own superhero supergroup film: DC’s Justice League. Word has already trickled out that the team-up film will be “dark and mature,” a la Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy; now it seems that Warner Bros. is set to take a page from the Marvel playbook by setting up the Justice League with several individual superhero films featuring The Flash, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and more.
That’s right—just as The Avengers was given a four-year, five-film lead-up with films for Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, and Captain America, Justice League may be getting several other ancillary films. According to Variety (via /Film), Warner Bros. is currently developing, in addition to Justice League, films for Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, Green Arrow, Lobo, Suicide Squad, and Shazam.
Moreover, Zack Snyder is currently in production with his Man of Steel Superman film, rumors abound that Green Lantern will either get a sequel or a reboot, and Warner Bros. has made it clear that they plan on rebooting Batman now that Nolan is finished with the character.
The films are all still in the development stages at this point, so Warner Bros. could go either way, releasing Justice League as a standalone film, or it could be the climax to a long series of superhero films. Keep tuning in for more updates.
