Something people may have noticed in that massive list of DC movies announced this morning was the lack of new solo Superman and Batman movies. Thankfully DC was aware of that, and they assure people in their press release that they will be doing new solo Batman and Superman movies prior to 2020:
And, in a massive expansion of the Studioâ€™s DC Entertainment-branded content, Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema will release a slate of at least 10 moviesâ€”as well as stand-alone Batman and Superman filmsâ€”from 2016 through 2020 that expands this prized universe of characters
There’s no clue as to when they’ll slot those movies in, especially with two DC movies being planned every year from 2016 on. But just as Marvel has no problems moving to three movies a year, it’s very possible DC will decide to do that in the years that they are able to do a new solo Superman or Batman movie.
Just no more Batman origins please. If someone doesn’t know who Batman is by now, they really have bigger problems.
