With comic con around the corner, fans have been anticipating what DC is planning with it's franchise characters.
Miss Nikki Finke is back with a vengeance and has obtained those plans! Welcome back ma'am, you were missed!
For starters, she confirmed the May 5th, 2017 release date for Justice League I reported back in late April.
According to Miss Nikki the release plan is the following...
May 2016 – Batman v Superman
July 2016 – Shazam
Xmas 2016 – Sandman
May 2017 – Justice League
July 2017 – Wonder Woman
Xmas 2017 – Flash and Green Lantern team-up
May 2018 – Man Of Steel 2
Her source also says the following which I heard as well.
Like Marvel’s The Avengers, there will be cameos of superheroes for future installments. The cameos will include the already known Cyborg and Flash. Green Lantern [not played by Ryan Reynolds, thank god] may be introduced. And Aquaman will be seen in the Justice League movie. Problem is, Warner Bros Pictures was still negotiating with the actors for those cameos and future roles, meaning major contracts for multiple JL/character films to follow. The studio didn’t want to move forward until they had more of this secure so they held off starting production for a few months. Seemingly simple reason, but the implications are pretty darn huge.
