We've got a couple of updates for you involving the the DC cinematic universe. First off, THR has confirmed that Jason Momoa is indeed playing Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The rumor hit last week from a reliable source, who was obviously right. As I said before, I think Momoa is a solid choice for the role, and it will be interesting to see how big of a part he plays in the story.
Shortly after that, a list was leaked online that revealed the DC movie line-up of films Warner Bros. is developing. That list included:
May 2016 – BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE
July 2016 – SHAZAM
Xmas 2016 – SANDMAN
May 2017 – JUSTICE LEAGUE
July 2017 – WONDER WOMAN
Xmas 2017 – FLASH/GREEN LANTERN Team Up
May 2018 – MAN OF STEEL 2
In case you were wondering how valid that list was, Kevin Smith says that it's the same movie line-up he heard. Smith has proved in the past that he knows what's going on over on the Warner Bros. studio lot. The filmmaker talked about all this on his Hollywood Babble On podcast, and these are a few of the highlights from it:
In regards to the list:
"Yeah, that's what I heard. That's what I was told."
In regards to how he knows:
"'Cause I know people mother f*cker."
How he feels about this list:
"That just gave me a reason to live, man. Like, who's that chick who don't wanna live? Lana del Ray? Show her this f*ckin' list. This is a list that would make f*ckin' grumpy cat smile, dude. Everything about this list is perfect."
It also sounds legit to me! Looks like Warner Bros. finally has a plan in place for their DC Comics properties. It could be changed over the years, but I believe that's what they have going on at the moment. Let's just hope that once these movies start pouring out of the studio they are good!
