Upcoming DC Movies: What's Next For Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, And More
Since 2008, Marvel Studios has built up their cinematic universe with some of the most popular movies being produced in Hollywood, and for much of that time DC Comics and Warner Bros. have doing everything in their power to create a franchise that exists on a similar level. We have been watching a new cinematic era for the brand play out going back to the release of Zack Snyder's Man of Steel in 2013, and while there have been certain ups and downs during that period, work is still being done.
It’s not the original DC Extended Universe as anybody planned it, but there is still an interesting future waiting to unfold for Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and company. So what are the titles that are going to help fans dive into this vast comic book world? Who are the filmmakers making the movies, and who will be starring? Well, we've organized all that information for you below, so read on to have your big questions answered!
To the surprise of only the few who couldn't understand the potential of a female-driven superhero movie, Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman was a monster hit when it was released in the summer of 2017, and as a result a sequel was quickly given the green light. Jenkins will be back at the helm, and the story will be taking the titular Amazonian hero to America – specifically during the year 1984 (if that wasn't obvious already from the title). There are still many mysteries surrounding the plot of Wonder Woman 1984, but Patty Jenkins has noted that the year simultaneously featured both the best and worst of humanity on the global scale. Gal Gadot will be back in her classic armor for the adventure as Wonder Woman, while (surprisingly) Chris Pine will also be back as the formerly-dead Steve Trevor. Kristin Wiig will be playing one of the central villains of the film, the classic Wonder Woman antagonist Cheetah (though she starts the story as Diana's nerdy gal pal Barbara Ann Minerva), and Pedro Pascal is playing Maxwell Lord – a scrupulous business man who is selling people their dreams... for a horrible price.
