Four DC Comics Movies URL Registrations Hint at Warner Bros.’ Upcoming Plans

by     Posted 110 days ago

It’s no secret that Warner Bros. is in the midst of building its own DC Comics Movies slate, crafting its answer to the highly successful Marvel Cinematic Universe.  They’ve already staked out release dates for nine upcoming DC Comics movies, and the in-production Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is looking like one massive Justice League prequel with appearances scheduled for Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, and more.  The question on everyone’s minds, though, is in what order will Warner Bros. be introducing more standalone DC comics movies?  Well an answer may have surfaced by way of four URLs that Warner Bros. just registered, which just so happen to match up to four very specific DC comics properties.  More after the jump.

wonder-woman-movie-gal-gadotThe folks over at Tech Times (via Comic Book Resources) have discovered that WB has registered the following URLs:

  • JusticeLeagueFilm.com
  • ShazamMovie.com
  • WonderWomanTheMovie.com
  • AquamanMovie.com

If you visit each individual URL, you are directed to the Warner Bros. homepage, confirming that this is indeed legitamite.  And this lineup make sense.  Zack Snyder is attached to move straight into directing Justice League after he finishes Batman v Superman, and Gal Gadot is already set to be introduced as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman, making Wonder Woman poised to fill the massive void of female-led superhero movies.

We also have Jason Momoa on tap to be introduced as Aquaman in Batman v Superman, and it was recently reported that Warner Bros. had commissioned two separate Aquaman scripts in an effort to put together the best possible version of the movie in a short amount of time.  And then Dwayne Johnson has been pulling a Vin Diesel with regards to the Shazam movie for some time now.  Last we heard on that front, Johnson was mulling over whether to play the titular hero or the villains Black Adam in Shazam, but make no mistake: it’s coming.

It’s tough to suss out which films will fill which untitled release dates since we know so little about their development.  Directors haven’t been announced for anything past Justice League, and we don’t know if there are existing scripts for any of these pictures yet.  But with Warner Bros. registering these URLs, I imagine we’re very close to a big DC announcement from the studio any day now.

What do you think, readers?  Which release dates do you think Justice League, Shazam, Wonder Woman, and Aquaman will fill?  Sound off in the comments below.

    I remain very cautiously optimistic about DC’s cinematic universe plans. At this point we only have Man of Steel to go by, and that was…well…something.

    • Mezmero

      It’s the only thing new,so that is the only something you can use but you can act like it’s not good but you don’t have to admit it. Why do you fan boys hate everything?? I’m not getting what you problem is with MOS and at this point it’s stupid. You version of Superman is boring and pointless and it called Superman Returns and it was the worst of any of them. You fanboys have bird brains when it comes to facts,how many people have to tell you idiots?

      • the king of comedy

        It doesn`t take a fanboy to see that MOS wasn`t a great movie, but I agree it`s not as bad as some people make it out to be, they had some interesting ideas about where to take the character, but the action scenes altough there were plenty, didn`t leave much of an impact, Clark`s dad was one of the worst characters ever written (and dying for a dog was stupid), and the movie had an awful pacing, every scene had to contain a lifechanging events and it all felt forced, it didn`t build enough character development in order to make you care, and for this reason the action scenes didn`t carry much weight either. Superman Returns isn`t as awful as some people make it out to be either, I just hated the inclusion of his son but other than that it got right many things that MOS didn`t.

      Marvel Studios, as I see it, has two advantages over WB. First of all, it has the infrastructure to seemlesly create new IPs, or test out old ones before they bring it to the big screen. Marvel Studios started making movies in 2006, and thats when they revived Guardians of the Galaxy in the comic books. I don’t think that’s a coincidence at all. I think they were either testing out the Guardians IP to see if it would resonate, and then develop it into a movie property if it did well.

      Secondly, Marvel has Feige. He’s smart enough to know that you have to make good movies. Just throwing things into movies for fan service (ala Spiderman 3) isn’t going to cut it. There was an interview where it sounded like Feige was discussing minutiae of even the editing of GotG. He’s in the trenches making those movies too. He’s not just sitting back and calling the shots from an office, at least not all the time.

      As much as I hate to see someone as talented as Edgar Wright leave Antman, it has to be recognized that the MCU is first and foremost Feige’s baby. If I had as much invested in that endeavor as Feige, I’d be just as protective as he was of the roadmap he’s got laid out. Director’s aren’t the only ones who have creative visions.

      I’m waiting for that moment when Warner will realize they simply cannot afford the luxury to skip the TV material (maybe it already happened actually).

      I mean the CW basically established free-stuff for the so-called DC Cinematic Universe, it would be surprising if Goyer and al. don’t try to capitalize on it.

      • Doot

        Also:great post from Beefdong up there!

  • SadBatman

    I’m half surprised not one of them has an “…and Batman” attached to the URL.

  • TOm

    Shazam is going to flop so hard, it’s going to leave a permanent dent on WB/DC. Especially now with their no jokes mandate.

    • Gannon

      I said the same thing about Journey 2…

    • World’s Finest Comments

      Can I borrow your TARDIS?

      Shazam won’t flop if Dwayne Johnson is playing him. In fact, it’ll probably be the most successful of the individual movies except for Man of Steel.

        I don’t recall very many people going to see Hercules, it has only made 70.9 million. Just because it has Dwayne Johnson doesn’t mean it will automatically be a hit. I project maybe 100 mil, if not less.

      • Person

        Dwayne Johnson was the highest grossing actor of 2013. Hercules was just a poorly made and marketed movie. Combine Johnson’s name with a DC superhero property and it’ll make money.

        The only thing working against it is a corny name like Shazam; people might think it’s a sequel to Kazzam… yikes.

      • Beefdong

        Whether a movie does well or not has more to do with the director than the actors. Sure actors are a big part of a movie’s success or failure, but the lion’s share of credit goes to the director most of the time.

      • Person

        That may be true in the independent world, but when it comes to blockbusters, it’s about the stars and how well known the property is. If they can market Shazam like Marvel did with GOTG, and put Johnson front-and-center, it’ll do fine.

        The Transformers movies didnt become huge hits because of Michael Bay’s directing skills….

      • Andrew Sanders

        That’s highly unlikely.Shazam isn’t exactly one of better known heroes of the DC universe & even more people may be put off with Dwayne Johnson’s involvement.It’s likely to flop even more than GL did.

    • the king of comedy

      The Rock will play Shazam so I think it`ll be a big success

  • scheebles

    Batman v. Superman starring Superman and introducing Batman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, The Flash, Lex Luthor, and Alfred!

    And they called Iron Man 2 a commercial for The Avengers…

    • Ver-mont

      I think the title itself makes it perfectly clear the movie isn’t starring just Superman. The subtitle makes it even more obvious. It isn’t too hard, just read it.

      • scheebles

        It’s not that I don’t understand or don’t think people will understand. It’s the fact that in one movie they’re cramming in all these heroes so that they can jump straight into Justice League. They didn’t even nail Superman in the first movie, I’m wondering how they’re going to nail down 5 more heroes in such a short time.

        Dont bother the guy seriously has some major screws loose. He actually hates it when people laugh.

  • VicManMan

    The prospect of an Aquaman movie has me wet with anticipation.

    • frankzubek

      Hopefully the film will address the mess we’re causing to the oceans of the world ( though hopefully not to the point of preaching). And that “no jokes” rule would work well here since the dumping on our oceans is no laughing matter

      • SadBatman

        Star Trek IV made jokes AND saved the whales. An Aquaman movie could only wish it was Star Trek IV.

  • theseeker7

    Sort of going with the almost practically non-descript-ish sort of faces of each superhero in that group banner photo at the top of the article… is it just me, or does Wonder Woman kind of just look like a dude with long, flowing hair? lol

    • DEADP00L

      is it just me, or does Wonder Woman kind of just look like a dude with long, flowing hair? lol

      O….my god…I’m never watching Wonder Woman now without my mind going back to this.

      • theseeker7

        seriously, looks like he/she just stepped out of an 80s hair metal music video…

      • DEADP00L

        … wow… how was it you that saw this and not me… OMG…you’re right!

      • theseeker7

        well it’s funny cause I’ve definitely seen that banner before, both on this site and other movie blogs, but I guess I never happened to REALLY look at it until today. And I started to notice, I guess maybe since the artist wasn’t fashioning them as any particular actor, they’ve each got very similar (like I said, non-descript) faces. Like they could all even be just family members lol That’s when I realized, WW doesn’t even look very womanly at all, it’s much the same structure as the men.

    When I see this picture, I want to say: Why serious ?

  • Colonel_Neville_Wraithchild

    I really hope that the DCCU finally takes off; all these movies have me pumped up, especially Shazam, i think Johnson can pull this off with no effort and, if he actually ends up playing the titular character, i would like to see Arnold Vosloo playing black adam, i think his a very imposing actor and having already played Egyptian type characters (the mummy) he may be a very good option.

  • http://www.collider.com/ DNAsplitter

    Shazam is the one that catches me off guard. I suppose it’s the Rock who is the reason why this is happening and so quickly. Would have thought they would have rather gone with a Flash film before something more obscure like Captain Marvel.

    Still, w Mamoa as Aquaman, I’m kinda of excited as he’s like the DC equivilant of Marvel’s Thor. Thor was something I had zero interest in when Marvel first announced him but after seeing both films and his line up in the Avengers it showed me how bad ass of character he could be if done correctly. I’m thinking Aquaman could be the same.

    Aquaman is the one i’m most excited about. I will watch Batman vs Superman just to see him.

    • Ruprect

      Yah, even though the actor seems genetically designed to play Namor. :)

  • DEADP00L

    I’ll stick to Marvel, at least they don’t have a joke free policy. I mean come on… no jokes in movies with a bunch of grown adults dressed in their underwear or skin tight overalls with their junk in plain view.

    Nothing worse than a super hero movie that takes itself way too seriously.

    • HeyGuy246

      I can think of a few things worse……One of them being having to read your narcissistic comments. I know you take pride in your self-referential comments “Deadpool”, but we all know you’re just some anti-social fat computer nerd living in your parent’s basement.

    man of steel was one of the worst superman films i’ve ever sat through. it didn’t make a lot of money either, so they are seriously taking a risk with all of this. i could easily see at least two of these completely bombing.

    • DEADP00L

      I do have to add though that with this one Goyer isnt the primary writer and Ben Affleck did mention he wouldn’t have taken this project on if the writing sucked. Affleck always did write and direct better than act so I trust his instincts on the writing – it’s the execution that I am concerned for.

      • mattinacan

        I watch and review all movies on their own merits, so i’ll certainly give it a watch. Goyer really disappointed me with MOS.

    • Wheel

      In what world did it not make much money?

      • mattinacan

        Well, MOS made $291M domestically on a $225M budget. The studio was disappointed with that. It made another $377M internationally, which is not small potatoes but obviously studios don’t make as much from international grosses. Overall the film came nowhere close to Dark Knight, Ironman, or recently GOTG territory in terms of box office dollars. While not quite a financial flop, MOS certainly was no success. The addition of Batman to the sequel clearly shows the studio was concerned and had to do something to ensure that the next film really popped.

    • Mezmero

      Sure it was that’s why it saved DC from complete death at the box office. Batman wasn’t going to last long and all you fanboys would have turned on him too because that’s all you ever do and it’s sad you still get movies made for you because they end up shitty. Green Lantern is the prime example of fan boys going nuts over how shitty it was then you get a real Superman movie and you say it’s shitty LMMFAO. I hope you never get what you want because it sucks and I don’t want anything to do with it.

      • mattinacan

        are you taking to me? i’m not a fan boy of anything except good movies. MOS was not a good film, and from what I’ve heard from comic book fans it completely got the character of superman wrong.

    I don’t want any of your fanboy films I want to watch a good movie. I don’t want to watch Superman and Batman talking the whole time I want action too!! If you fan boys had it your way they would stand there and talk Lex would be the hero that saves the world because your mad at Superman for breaking that nice mans neck LMMFAO! You would want a fat girl to play Wonder Women and Chris Nolan as writer,director and light holder LMMFAO! I know this will be a good because you fanboys will claim you hate anything you don’t have a say in.
