DC Films DC to Announce Films for The Flash (2016) & Justice League (2017) written by Sean Gerber July 20, 2013 The Warner Bros. Pictures panel is going on right now, but the major DC announcements continue to be scooped ahead of time. Earlier today, the LA Times reported plans for a Superman and Batman team up film in 2015. Now, The Hollywood Reporter is backing up that news with its own sources while revealing two other major movie announcements expected at the panel. Warner Bros. is set to announce films for The Flash and Justice League in 2016 and 2017, respectively. If all of this is true, and we’ll know if it is soon enough, then fans will finally have a true DC Universe on film. Justice League rumors come and go, but an official announcement is something else entirely. The prospect of a Flash film might be an even bigger story given Warner Bros. previous hesitation to make solo movies based on DC characters not named Batman and Superman. Warner Bros. tried stepping out of its superhero comfort zone with “Green Lantern” two years ago, but the film was a critical and financial flop. Hopefully, we will soon officially hear that Warner Bros. is ready to try again and take another step forward. No one can take that step any faster that the Scarlet Speedster.
