6 DC Extended Universe Movies That are in Development AS WE SPEAK
Comparatively, Marvel dominates DC Comics when it comes to raking in the big bucks. The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3 and Captain America: Civil War all take up spots on the list of the top 20 highest-grossing films of all time — as #5, #7, #12 and #14, respectively — while DC only has The Dark Knight Rises… and that’s sitting all the way down at slot #19.
But, perhaps, DC is on the rise. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad were awful productions, but they did get a lot of money at the box office; enough for Warner Bros. to greenlight sequels and spin-offs. Plus, Wonder Woman is DY-NA-MITE — it’s bringing in the cashola, and is actually, you know… an amazing movie!!!
While Wonder Woman is the only decent DC movie in recent years, we can’t help but wait for this year’s Justice League (November 17, 2017), next year’s Aquaman (December 21, 2018), plus these six other DC Extended Universe movies that are in development AS WE SPEAK:
After Ezra Miller was cast as Barry Allen/The Flash in 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it seemed like a solo movie surrounding the speedy superhero would be around the corner, especially since Justice League is scheduled for Novemer of this year and fellow Justice League member Aquaman's eponymous movie is slated for the end of 2018.
Despite the search for a director and no current release date (though, 2020 looks like a possibility), Ezra still remains attached to the project, as well as Kiersey Clemons, who was cast as Iris West, Ray Fisher, who's tapped to return as Victor Stone/Cyborg (as he did in BvS:DoJ), and Billy Crudup, who will portray Barry's father, Henry Allen.
