News of Warner Bros.’ intentions to announce a slew of new DC films this year at San Diego Comic-Con has hit the web. This new report goes deeper than what we’ve already learned about the Batman VS Superman and Wonder Woman film.

NikkiFinke.com was the first to report the news and, according to her, the upcoming films include 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
Going into further detail, NikkiFinke.com has also said:
According to my source, “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.
Let’s try not to think too much about the fact that a Shazam and Sandman movie is coming before Wonder Woman, because we’ll all get headaches. But, if I had to guess, I’d say that Warner Bros. and DC are trying to line up as many established characters as they can before the Justice League movie hits? So, according to the current roster, that would mean that by the time Justice League lands in theatres, there will have been Superman, Batman, Shazam, Sandman, and Green Lantern (though apparently Ryan Reynolds won’t be returning, so we’ll flip a coin to see if we include this one) movies, but no Wonder Woman? Sorry, Gal Gadot.
