Movies and TV shows based on characters from the DC Universe will be coming your way in plenty in the near future. There’s no word on a new Batman or Superman film, but there is a slew of other projects in development, many of which will introduce you to characters you’ve never met before.
We’ve got a list of upcoming DC films and series below, so check out our Marvel preview for more.
The Sandman (Netflix Show)
Don’t let this opportunity pass you by! Fans of the comic book that this upcoming fantasy drama will be adapted from by Neil Gaiman have high hopes for the adaptation because of the quality of the source material.
The main focus of the series is on the titular guy, played by Tom Sturridge, who manages to break from captivity after being wrongfully held in custody by a shadowy organization. After being let free, the Sandman, also known as Dream, discovers that he is now in the modern world. It is here that he decides to seek vengeance against those who were responsible for his imprisonment.
This enchanted television series features a cast that includes Gwendoline Christie, Vivienne Acheampong, Boyd Holbrook, and Charles Dance, and it is hoped that it will remain faithful to the famed author’s original novel.
Black Adam Movie
Jaume Collet-Serra, who previously directed the film Orphan, is responsible for bringing the long-gestating film project that has been in development since the early 2000s to fruition. Pierce Brosnan, Noah Centineo, and Sarah Shahi are also a part of the cast.
Pierce Brosnan plays Black Adam, the antihero who is reputedly just as powerful as Superman. Dwayne Johnson takes on the character of Black Adam. In the movie, Black Adam becomes a member of the Justice Society of America; however, it would appear that due to his warped morality, he is not a good fit for the squad.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods (Movie)
After Zach Snyder’s impressive but overly sombre DC films, Shazam! was a wonderful relief. Superhero flick with a lot of heart and Zachary Levi (Chuck) as the lead character made for an enjoyable experience.
Shazam! Levi and Asher Angel return as Billy Batson and his foster family, who were transformed into superheroes at the end of the previous film, join them. Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu, the daughters of the Greek titan Atlas, will take on the evil roles of Dr. Thaddeus Sivana and Dr. Thaddeus Sivana’s assistant this time around in place of Mark Strong.
Batgirl (HBO Max Movie)
An origin movie starring Leslie Grace (In the Heights) as Batgirl, JK Simmons as her father, Commissioner James Gordon, and Michael Keaton as Batman will be released. Unlike Matt Reeves’ The Batman, which was set in a distinct universe, this film will take place in the DCEU. Brendan Fraser, who played the pyromaniacal bad guy Firefly on the now-canceled TV program, Gotham, will also appear in the film.
Batgirl has reportedly been canceled, as reported by a number of credible sources. However, even though it cost the studio $70 million to produce, the studio opted to cut its losses and flee. Wow.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom (Movie)
Jason Momoa, who previously starred as Aquaman, will reprise his role as the title character in James Wan’s upcoming sequel. Atlantis and the rest of the planet are in danger when a long-forgotten power is awakened, and Aquaman must create a strange partnership with an unusual friend to stop it. This is the second solo outing for the wisecracking King of Atlantis.
The Flash (Movie)
In the wake of the MCU’s Multiverse, the DCEU is finally ready to take us on a tour of its own. Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton, who previously starred as Batman and Robin, will join Ezra Miller as the Scarlet Speedster.
Ezra’s portrayal of three Barry Allens, all of whom will be played by the actor himself, has apparently been released online. We’ve heard rumors about Supergirl, Wonder Woman, and General Zod being in the film, but until we have a solid synopsis (not based on rumored leaks), we won’t believe anything we read online.
Blue Beetle (Movie)
Blue Beetle is the first movie to feature Jaime Reyes (Xolo Mariduea), the third character to take on the mantle of the hero who attains a powerful suit of blue alien armor when a blue beetle scarab becomes attached to his spine. Production on Blue Beetle has now come to an end. Blue Beetle is the first movie to feature Jaime Reyes (Xolo Mariduea).
The film, which features a Latin American superhero for the first time in a standalone DC adaptation, has been directed by Angel Manuel Soto (Charm City Kings), making it the first of its kind. At this early point, there is not a lot that is known about it, but additional information is anticipated to become available soon.
Wonder Woman 3 (Movie)
Patty Jenkins is going to direct a third Wonder Woman movie, however, at this time there is no information available on what the movie’s story would be about or when production on the film might begin. The actress Gal Gadot, who plays Wonder Woman, has stated that the story will take place in the present day, but that is all the information we have at this time.
If you are a fan of the character, you can still take comfort in the fact that another movie featuring the Amazonian warrior will be released at some point in the not-too-distant future.
