So just barely a few days after Marvel drops their bombshell, DC investors are obviously getting their panties in a twist, and have probably gone and wrecked what would have been some nice reveals in anyone of the major upcoming nerd fests (I am also a nerd so I mean that in a good way) and instead of going for the reveal, DC has basically dumped out in plain sight their upcoming schedule… not that I am complaining because it looks dam good! But still, reveal fail!
Anyways here is what their line up looks like
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Justice League 2
Hell yes! But a lot of interesting tid bits here and speculation to follow, baddassdigest.com has the list plus some speculations or head over to ign.com for a bit more info. But from here we see suicide squad getting their own movie, awesome! Question is, who will play which members, will Harely Quinn be in it or not, Assault on Arkham was awesome, I wonder if they can do it justice like that. And will they mess around with the race of each person…
Speaking of which, I wonder what Green Lantern we will get, Hal or John… I really think it needs to be John, it would effectively wipe out the first GL movie that while looked good visually, was a bomb… But also I think John suits the tone more that they seem to be going for… and then there is the race issue… but we will leave that for now
However on that note, Wonder Women is set to be the first female lead superhero film! And we know Cyborg will be the first black superhero (if Marvel doesnt release Black Panther before hand) I wonder if we will see Hawk Girl, or John the Martian!!
But that aside, it still annoys me that the CW tv series of Arrow and Flash will be living in a seperate universe, meaning there will be 2 Flashes running around, while there are ways around this, is still just doesn’t feel right to me, and bringing Arrow into that world would have been awesome, not just in the Justice League but also in his own show, much like Tony Stark had to deal with the world being so small, Arrow would have to do the same coming to grips with it in back in his own show.
Anyways, the questions aside, we are basically getting 4-5 superhero movies every year now, cant complain with that! And DC’s lineup is looking very exciting, we have been waiting for it and finally we get Justice League on the big screen! Booyah!
