Warner Bros. DC Movie Announcements Coming This Month & Justice League
Now, Dan Fellman, Warner Bros.' president of domestic distribution, says announcements regarding the titles of those movies should be coming later this month, and Fellman also tells EW.com that the first Justice League "adventure" might be closer than everyone thinks.
“While it hasn’t been officially announced. I think it’s a pretty good bet," teased Feldman about following Batman Vs. Superman with a quick sequel using more classic characters, rather than waiting two or three years.
It's been rumored that Zack Snyder is filming Batman Vs. Superman and the Justice League movie back-to-back. It's also rumored that the Batman Vs. Superman movie will include those members of the Justice League, in addition to Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. To date, Ray Fisher is rumored as Cyborg and Jason Momoa is rumored as Aquaman.
Another rumor floating around is that Dwayne Johnson will be featured in a Shazam movie, either as the titular character or as Black Adam, as the actor has teased the characters a number of times.
Regarding the change in release date for Batman Vs. Superman, Feldman adds its a win-win situation for both WB and Marvel, as obviously it will cut the competition. Feldman also noted that the move gives Batman Vs. Superman a full six weeks before Captain America 3 gets released.
