Wan will most likely tackle ‘Aquaman’ in spring 2016 after he finishes his commitment on ‘The Conjuring 2: The Endfield Experiment’.

UPDATE: Starting off from small budget horror flicks (Saw, The Conjuring), it looks like director JAMES WAN may be looking to tackle another potential big budget blockbuster. Coming off the massive success of ‘Furious 7’ earning close to $400 million and counting, Wan is now in early talks to helm AQUAMAN!

Stay tuned for further confirmation.

UPDATE: Director MICHELLE MACLAREN (TV’s Game Of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad) have been announced by Warner Bros. to helm the upcoming solo WONDER WOMAN flick starring GAL GADOT (Fast 6)!

It only makes sense to have a woman direct a film about the ‘Amazonian Princess’ considering how the character is associated with female empowerment.

But first, Gadot will make her ‘Wonder Woman’ debut in 2016’s BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE directed by ZACK SNYDER (300, Man Of Steel).

Not to be outdone by MARVEL’s recent announcement of their plans for ‘Civil War’, WARNER BROS. PICTURES just revealed the FULL SLATE of DC COMICS movies all the way up to 2020!

WB OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE:

In a massive expansion of the Studio’s DC Entertainment-branded content, Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema will release a slate of at least 10 movies–as well as stand-alone Batman and Superman films–from 2016 through 2020 that expands this prized universe of characters:

– “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” directed by Zack Snyder (2016)
– “Suicide Squad,” directed by David Ayer (2016)
– “Wonder Woman,” starring Gal Gadot (2017)
– “Justice League Part One,” directed by Zack Snyder, with Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams reprising their roles (2017)
– “The Flash,” starring Ezra Miller (2018)
– “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa (2018)
– “Shazam” starring Dwayne Johnson as ‘Black Adam'(2019)
– “Justice League Part Two,” directed by Zack Snyder (2019)
– “Cyborg,” starring Ray Fisher (2020)
– “Green Lantern” (2020)

Considering Warner Bros. have cast actor EZRA MILLER (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) as ‘The Flash’, this pretty much confirms that DC’s movies and T.V. universe (CW’s Arrow and The Flash) are totally separate.

Am I the only one here who thinks this is a TERRIBLE idea? BRIAN GUSTIN is doing a wonderful job as ‘Barry Allen’ on the CW’s THE FLASH. By the time the movie is release in 2018 audiences will already be attached to Gustin as the character. Unless Miller will be playing ‘Wally West’ instead of ‘Barry Allen’, recasting the character for the film is such a waste.

Same thing goes for STEPHEN AMELL as ‘Green Arrow’. If WB ever plans to add the archer into their future ‘Justice League’ films, I doubt they can find anybody else even close to what Amell brings to the role.

What do you guys think? Comment below!

  1. Comment…I think GUSTIN should continue as the FLASH in the next justice league and the next flash film. audiences will get attached to GUSTIN and to their surprise it’s someone else acting as barry allen. This will eventually be a waste of all the hard work and effort that have been made in shooting this movie. BY the way Stephen Amell a.k.a Oliver Queen must continue with his role as ARROW and must be featured in the JUSTINCE LEAGUE film along side the superman,batman,wonder etc…
