After Justice League, the future of DC Extended Universe is about to get a whole lot bigger. Rumors of sequels and standalone projects are rife. But what exactly are the rumors? With Warner Bros. now about to handle a major expansion phase of the DCEU, what should fans expect for DC Films in the near future?
Wonder Woman 2 will take place in the Cold War
Diana Prince saved the world once already as Wonder Woman when she stopped Ares and Doctor Poison from annihilating the face of the Earth in Wonder Woman. But those events take place in World War 1. Now Diana will face new threats and challenges, in a world completely different than she would care to admit. Enter the Cold War.
Green Lantern Corps movie will include two Green Lanterns
Green Lanterns of Earth in DC Comics includes the following roster – Kyle Rayner, Alan Scott, Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner and Jon Stewart. The upcoming Green Lantern Corps movie, which will be a reboot of sorts, is rumored to feature not one but two of those heroes – Hal Jordan and Jon Stewart.
The Flash movie will reboot the DCEU
Flashpoint is a defining moment in DC Comics. Apart from being super popular, the comics changed the very fundamentals of DC Comics in general. With the current DC movies financially underperforming, a reboot is just what the franchise needs. DC has a history richer than Marvel. It does not deserve the hate A reboot will help them get the recognition they deserve.
Jake Gyllenhaal to be the Next Batman of DCEU
Ben Affleck leaving the Bat-mantle is old news now. The fact that Ben is leaving is old news does not necessarily make it less painful. Ben was perfect for the role of Batman. But he was admittedly getting a little older for the character. With the Flashpoint reboot, Batman could get a perfect facelift in the name of Jake Gyllenhaal.
Darkseid will be the villain in Justice League sequel
DC Comic’ God of Evil was controversially left out of the first Justice League movie. Arguably, he won’t face a similar fate in the second one. Justice League 2 is definitely happening. Steppenwolf is about to be yesterday’s news. Darkseid, the ruler of Apokolips and the God of Evil will take over where Steppenwolf failed.
Aquaman movie will not have one, two but three villains
Aquaman is hitting the Big Screens on December 21, 2018. And if rumors are true, it won’t have just one big bad. The God of the Seven Seas will feature three villains that will face off against Aquaman – Ocean master, Black Manta, and the Trench. The movie is something DC fans are super excited about. Go, Momoa!!!
Channing Tatum will be Hal Jordan
Tatum has had a fantastic career so far in Hollywood. His status as an action star and his comic timing in comedy movies are nothing short of legendary. If Channing Tatum enters the DC Extended Universe, he will most likely become this universe’s Hal Jordan, an equally sarcastic, funny and gets-the-job-done kinda guy.
Man of Steel 2 will feature SuperGirl
Kara Danvers has carved out a nifty little name for herself in The CW’s Arrowverse Show Super Girl. Now her days in the Big Screens may be about to begin. Man of Steel was arguably one of the best superhero origin stories. Man of Steel 2 is rumored to be happening. And Super Girl will be a very important plot point in that movie. Maybe we will see another battle of the Kryptonians above Metropolis.
Mark Strong will be Dr. Sivana in Shazam!
Now, this is something you should be seriously excited about. Mark Strong is one of THE most gifted actors Hollywood has to offer. Strong has already appeared as Sinestro in 2011’s atrocious Green Lantern. Maybe with Shazam!, his villainous capabilities will be explored to their fullest extent and he gets the acknowledgment he deserves.
The Rock’s Black Adam will appear in Suicide Squad 2
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is about to be a part of the DCEU in a big way. The Rock is confirmed to play DC’s premium anti-hero, Black Adam. While Black Adam has historically been Captain Marvel’s arch-rival in the comics, he won’t be appearing in Shazam!.Apparently, The Rock’s Black Adam will feature in Suicide Squad 2 as a human weapon gone rogue and to be hunted down by Waller’s Suicide Squad before things escalate to Kingdom Come.
