It’s hard to believe that back in 2011, when Man of Steel was announced as being the beginning of a new DC Cinematic Universe and was being pushed back to 2013 for release that we would have to wait a long time for many of the other properties to come out. We are less than a year away from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to arrive in theaters and Warner Bros. is working on Suicide Squad. What about the other movies?
In the recent issue of Empire magazine, the cover story is about the upcoming Batman v Superman film. This strikes me as odd as the film is still eight months out and they are already a cover story? In any case, we have an idea as to when the other promised films will begin production.
Here is an excerpt from the Empire article:
Logistically it is staggering. As Batman V Superman gains its coat of special effects, and the various stages of editing, scoring, grading and sound mixing are completed, Deborah Snyder, along with Roven, is watching over a sandbox that stretches around the world. Jenkins is in London prepping Wonder Woman, which will shoot there this autumn. Suicide Squad, already well underway in Toronto under the earthy gaze of Ayer, will shoot through to September. “I do watch the dailies,” [Deborah Snyder] promises, enthusing about the film’s “street quality.” They are already doing soft prep for the Justice League, which will begin shooting in the spring, and overseeing the script for Aquaman, which James Wan will direct.
This is news simply because we have actual times. Anyone familiar with how movies are filmed would realize that given their hard release dates, these would have to begin being filmed soon. Wonder Woman is slated to be released on June 23, 2017, while Justice League, Part One will be released later that year on November 12th.
