Ever since the announcement that ‘Batman v Superman‘ would be released on the same day as Marvel’s ‘Captain America 3‘ speculation has been rife that one of the films would budge but nobody quite expected an announcement like this!
Warner Bros. Pictures this week announced that ‘Dawn of Justice’ will be hightailing it out of the May 6th 2016 release date and instead landing in cinemas on 25th March 2106 instead. Firstly this puts it up against far less competition with only ‘Beverly Hills Cop‘ being directed by Brett Ratner currently set for release the same day but secondly leaving a clear path for DC Comics to own cinemas until the release of Marvel’s ‘Captain America 3‘ which coming off the success of it’s predecessor and the upcoming ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron‘ is bound to be a hit.
But Warner Bros. did not stop there! Shortly after the announcement came a follow-up with dates for 9 (!!!) further DC Comics properties to be released through to 2020. Here’s the list of dates for your calendar:
– August 5, 2016
– June 23, 2017
– November 17, 2017
– March 23, 2018
– July 27, 2018
– April 5, 2019
– June 14, 2019
– April 3, 2020
– June 19, 2020
By the time I get around to reviewing that June 19th film in 2020 I’ll be 35 which doesn’t bare thinking about but right now there are no clues out there as to what these films will be but it is safe to say that one of these dates will soon have the words ‘Justice League‘ written next to it!
What do you think these films will be?!
