Warner Bros. are five movies into their DC Extended Universe. So far we’ve had Man of Steel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman and most recently Justice League. With the superhero film genre booming Warner Bros. have a number of films in certain stages of development.

So what we’ve decided to do is put all the films the studio currently has development into one place for you.

Not all of these films will see the light of day, and with current situation regarding the Justice League film not hitting the expected box-office returns the studio were hoping for there could be a reshuffle behind the scenes.


Status: In post-production

Director: James Wan

Cast: Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Nicole Kidman and Willem Dafoe

Release Date: December 21, 2018

Jason Momoa returns as Aquaman after being seen in Batman V Superman and Justice League with The Conjuring’s James Wan behind the camera. James Wan and Geoff Johns penned the story, with Gangster Squad’s Will Beal writing the script.


Status: Pre-production, filming is said to being early 2018.

Director: David F. Sandberg

Cast: Zachary Levi, Asher Angel and Mark Strong

Release Date: April, 2019

Shazam! has been years in the making, originally the film was going to star Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson as Black Adam taking on Shazam. But that was scrapped when the studios announced it would develop a standalone Black Adam film, with Shazam just focusing on Billy Batson becoming the titular hero. Lights Out director David F. Sandberg will helm the film from a script by Henry Gayden.

Wonder Woman II

Status: In development

Director: Patty Jenkins

Cast: Gal Gadot

Release Date: November 1, 2019

Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins are re-teaming for the sequel after Wonder Woman’s success. Jenkins and Geoff Johns are writing a treatment for the film, with The Expendables David Callaham being brought on board to write the script.

Suicide Squad 2

Status: In development

Director: Gavin O’Connor

Cast: TBA (Margot Robbie and Will Smith are likely to return)

Release Date: TBA

David Ayer is out of the directors chair with The Accountant’s Gavin O’Connor coming in. After the financial success of the first, Warner Bros. will want to get things rolling very soon.


Status: In development

Director: TBA

Cast: Ezra Miller, Kiersey Clemons and Billy Crudup

Release Date: TBA

The Flash solo film has had its troubles, Phil Lord and Chris Miller were hired to write a treatment but left after getting the Han Solo film. Screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith was then hired to direct and write the script but left after due to creative differences. Dope’s Rick Famuyiwa was hired as his replacement, but left after a few months with the old creative differences popping its ugly head up. Joby Harold is currently doing a page one rewrite on the script. There has been some rumours Robert Zemeckis may direct, but we are still waiting on official word.
