When it comes to Superhero movies, the Marvel Cinematic Universe and DC Comics pretty much rule the world. With the global success of Aquaman and Shazam, DC has renewed both movies for a sequel. Other than this, there are so many other DC films that are expected to release this year and the next. Here is a list of the most anticipated upcoming DC movies.
1| The Joker
Release Date: 4 October 2019
The Joker is the story of Arthur Fleck who is a failed comedian. Many events take place that drive him into madness slowly. And this leads him to becoming one of the most feared criminal masterminds of his time. This movie will dive into the life of The Joker long before he becomes Batman’s arch nemesis. The movie is set in the 1980s. Jared Leto plays The Joker. And you would be interested to know that Robert De Niro is also a part of the cast.
2| Birds of Prey
Release Date: 7 February 2020
Harley Quinn of Suicide Squad fame puts together her own team of Superheroes in this film. DC decided that an extrovert like Harley Quinn should work in a group film and not a solo one. The plot of the movie is still under wraps but the team of Superheroes is supposed to protect an artefact that is the property of Black Mask.
Release Date: 3 April 2020 (tentative)
After an appearance in Dawn of Justice and Justice League, the makers of DCEU have decided to let Victor Stone fly solo in his first solo film. This movie is said to build on Cyborg’s storyline from Justice League.
4| Wonder Woman 1984
Release Date: 5 June 2020
Following the success of Wonder Woman, we will see Gal Gadot in this next part of the film that is set in 1984. This is not a sequel but simply another chapter in the marvellous life of Wonder Woman. Pedro Pascal (Oberyn Martell from Game of Thrones) is rumoured to play a vital role in the film.
5| The Batman
Release Date: 25 June 2021
Following the step-down of Ben Affleck as Batman, DC saw fans speculate widely about who was going to be cast as the next Batman. DC chose a younger Batman, much to the appreciation of fans. It was Robert Pattinson of Twilight fame. He has been training vigorously to do justice to the titular role of Batman. The movie will focus on a younger Batman but it is not an origin kind of a film. This is surely one of the most anticipated upcoming DC movies.
6| The Suicide Squad
Release Date: 6 August 2021
There is not much that is being said about the upcoming Suicide Squad movie. Except that one of the writers who was fired from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, James Gunn has been roped in to write the script. It seems like he will also be directing the film. This movie is being described as a “reboot” and not as a sequel. Actor Will Smith has confirmed that he will not be a part of the cast.
