After making changes to their original movie slate announced in 2014, DC/Warner Brothers announced an updated list of upcoming films at this year's San Diego Comic-Con and it raises more questions than it answers.
After this year's Justice League and next year's Aquaman, DC/WB announced the following films – not necessarily in order of release: Shazam, Suicide Squad 2, The Batman, Justice League Dark, Batgirl, Green Lantern Corps, The Flash: Flashpoint and Wonder Woman 2.
At first glance, this seems impressive. Batgirl, in particular, seems like a no-brainer with her name recognition, tie-in with the Bat-family and Joss Whedon's desire to helm, especially with his success with projects with female leads.
Shazam seems to appeal to a lighter, younger demographic, while Justice League Dark could be a superhero movie that appeals to horror fans. Wonder Woman 2 is obviously a slam dunk. Suicide Squad 2? Less so. The Batman is almost a guaranteed success — while Green Lantern Corps and The Flash: Flashpoint offer no guarantees.
