Every single DCComics movie coming in 2021 and beyond
DC may have gotten a later start on its cinematic empire than Marvel, but it's making up for lost time now.
From movies hitting screens soon to far-off projects in the pipeline, here are DC's biggest superhero movies for 2021 and beyond.
Zack Snyder's Justice League — March 2021
Following a tumultuous production that saw Joss Whedon leading reshoots of Zack Snyder’s original,Justice League got a reception as uneven as the film itself. Snyder has since returned to finish his vision of Justice League, which will be aired as a miniseries on HBO Max.
The Suicide Squad — August 6, 2021
After 2016’s Suicide Squad failed to live up to the hype, DCis trying again, with a reboot helmed by Guardians of the Galaxy’s James Gunn and starring a mix of returning actors (like Margot Robbie and Viola Davis) and new faces (including Idris Elba and Pete Davidson).
The Batman — March 4, 2022
In a take on the Dark Knightthat’s said to be one of the darkest yet and focus on the “world’s greatest detective” aspect of the character, The Batman puts the always-interesting Robert Pattinson in the cape and cowl to square off against Catwoman, the Riddler, and Penguin.
The Flash — November 4, 2022
Rumored to be an adaptation of the "Flashpoint" comic book arc, The Flash will have its hero traveling through multiple parallel universes, tying together previously disparate cinematic continuities and featuring at least two versions of Batman(Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton).
Aquaman 2 — December 16, 2022
Not much is known yet about the sequel toDC’s most financially successful superhero movie to date, but villains Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) and Ocean Master (Patrick Wilson) are confirmed to be returning, along with director James Wan.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods — June 2, 2023
Fury of the Gods’ production has already been postponed multiple times and nothing has been revealed about its plot, but fans expect a tease of villain Mister Mind from the original Shazam! to pay off in the sequel, and some think that Black Adam could appear as well.
Black Adam (TBD)
The cinematic introduction of Shazam’s nemesis, starring Dwayne Johnson asBlack Adam, was pushed back from its December 2021 release date, but DChas revealed that it will feature Justice Society of America members and teased a potential Superman cameo.
Batgirl was originally set to be written and directed by Joss Whedon, but he later backed out and Birds of Prey writerChristina Hodson stepped up to pen the script. Warner Bros. says it’s actively searching for a female director to head the project.
The New Gods (TBD)
Selmaand A Wrinkle in Time director Ava DuVernay is directing an adaptation of this out-there comic series. DuVernay says she’s working on a fourth draft of the script featuring All-Widow (aka Queen of the Bugs) if you want some idea of how strange this story could get.
Wonder Woman 3 (TBD)
Just after the release of Wonder Woman 1984, Warner Bros. announced that it was making Diana’s third film a priority. Writer/director Patty Jenkins says the sequel will take place in the modern-day, unlike the previous two standalone movies.
Static Shock (TBD)
A relative newcomer to the DClineup, Static Shock is getting his own feature film. The movie is confirmed to be in production, with Michael B. Jordan serving as a producer, but beyond that, nothing has been revealed about Static Shock yet.
