Per the big cover story in the latest issue of Empire Magazine, we now know just when Wonder Woman and Justice League, the two 2017 entries that will follow Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad will begin filming.
According to the magazine, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins is currently in London prepping the film for a Fall start date. Wonder Woman is expected to hit theaters on June 23, 2017. Zack Snyder and his crew are expected to begin shooting Justice League Part One in the Spring of next year for a November 10, 2017 release.
So, not really specific dates here actually, but more like time-frames.
Justice League Part Two is expected in 2019, after a duo of DC standalone features: The Flash and Aquaman, the latter directed by James Wan.
Wonder Woman will be written by Jason Fuchs, whose Pan will see release on October 9th. The two Justice League features are expected to be penned by Batman v Superman scribe Chris Terrio.
And with that…let’s run down the things we know about the movies coming out after 2016 in the DC Cinematic Universe:
