The Future of DC Comics Movies

All the New DC Comics Movies Coming to Theatres

All the New DC Comics Movies Coming to Theatres in 2020 and Beyond

(Updated 06/15/2020)

The DC movie universe has gone through some changes in the past few years, with new heroes like Aquaman and Wonder Woman embarking on solo adventures while Superman and Batman take a brief time out. Don’t worry – we’ll see more Batman very soon! In the meantime, the future of DC Comics movies is brighter and more exciting than ever.

Join us as we take a closer look at the upcoming DC superhero movies, the awesome filmmakers bringing them to the big screen, and the new heroes and villains we’ll meet in the superhero movies of 2020 and beyond.

Wonder Woman 1984

Upcoming DC Comics Movies: Wonder Woman 1984

This year’s DC movies belong to women like the fierce and formidable Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman. Gal Gadot’s hero returns in the highly-anticipated sequel, WONDER WOMAN 1984, which takes our favorite warrior out of the distant past and into the more recent past of – you guessed it – 1984. In an America gripped by the Cold War, Diana is confronted with new dangers and the return of an old love. "SNL" vet Kristen Wiig plays the villain Cheetah, with "Game of Thrones" star Pedro Pascal as millionaire Maxwell Lord, and Chris Pine returning as Steve Trevor – but how?! [October 2]

The Suicide Squad

Upcoming DC Comics Movies: The Suicide Squad

Don’t call it a comeback – but it’s not quite a sequel or a reboot, either. GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY director James Gunn is putting together a new crew featuring returning stars Joel Kinnaman as Squad leader Rick Flag, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. There will be several new members, as well, played by Idris Elba, John Cena, “SNL” star Pete Davidson, Taika Waititi, Gunn regulars Michael Rooker and Sean Gunn, ANT-MAN’s David Dastmalchian, Storm Reid, and many, many more. We don’t know much about James Gunn’s SQUAD just yet, but based on his previous work, it’s sure to be a thrilling and hilarious ride. [August 6, 2021]

The Batman

Upcoming DC Comics Movies: The Batman

We told you Batman would be back! This time around, things are a little different. Robert Pattinson plays the Dark Knight in the upcoming film from filmmaker Matt Reeves (WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES). Inspired by the caped crusader’s detective origins, the new solo film features famous villains like Catwoman (Zoe Kravitz), The Riddler (Paul Dano), and mobster Carmine Falcone (John Turturro). Also in the cast are Jeffrey Wright (“Westworld”), as Commissioner Gordon, and Andy Serkis, as Alfred Pennyworth. There have also been reports that we may see the return of the Penguin!

Black Adam

Upcoming DC Comics Movies: Black Adam

Dwayne Johnson has been attached to play DC’s Black Adam for almost a decade, and it’s finally happening. The ancient super-villain, best known as the arch-nemesis of Shazam!, is getting his own solo film directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who recently directed Johnson in Disney’s JUNGLE CRUISE. The movie version of the character might be a bit different from the comic book one. When he released the image above, Johnson said the character "is blessed by magic with the powers equal to Superman, but the difference is he doesn’t toe the mark or walk the line. He’s a rebellious, one of a kind superhero, who’ll always do what’s right for the people - but he does it his way." [December 22, 2021]

DC Super-Pets

Upcoming DC Comics Movies: DC Super-Pets

DC Comics got wild in the '60s and '70s, when it seemed like every hero in the company's lineup had a pet sidekick. Now the animated movie DC SUPER-PETS brings a collection of these crime-fighting furballs to the big screen, courtesy of LEGO BATMAN writer Jared Stern and former Disney story artist and animator Sam Levine. We don't yet know what four-legged friends will feature in this ferociously friendly fiction, but expect to encounter both Superman's pal Krypto, the super-dog, and Batman's adopted pup Ace the Bat-Hound.

The Flash

Upcoming DC Comics Movies: The Flash

Ezra Miller’s speedy hero was first introduced in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, and he became an instant favorite when he joined the super-team in JUSTICE LEAGUE. THE FLASH has been in development as a solo movie for a few years now, but it seems like it’s finally on track for a 2022 release from IT director Andy Muschietti. We can’t wait to see Miller’s delightful superhero in a movie of his very own. [June 3, 2022]

Shazam! 2

Upcoming DC Comics Movies: Shazam! 2

The first SHAZAM! was a total delight, like the Tom Hanks comedy BIG crossed with Superman. A young boy is granted immense power and the ability to transform into a superhero (played by Zachary Levi) when he shouts “Shazam!” Details on the sequel have yet to be revealed, but we know that Levi will reprise his role as the charming hero – and maybe he’ll bump into Black Adam? Hopefully, the other members of the superhero's family will be back as well. [November 4, 2022]

Aquaman 2

Upcoming DC Comics Movies: Aquaman 2

Last but far from least on the schedule is AQUAMAN 2. Jason Momoa’s brawny guardian of the sea will return for another solo outing from director James Wan. The sequel is said to explore some of the other locations in the seven kingdoms of Atlantis and features returning co-stars Patrick Wilson as Aquaman’s villainous brother Orm, aka Ocean Master, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as David Kane, aka Black Manta.
