DC Universe is expanding quite a lot recently. Previously, the audience gets to see mostly Batman and Superman on the big screens. But in recent times, so many new characters from DCEU are debuting in the significant comic book film adaptations. And just now, Warner Bros. came out with quite many upcoming DC movie schedules for the next three years. Here are all the forthcoming big DC movies of upcoming years. Let’s take a look.
After a big set back with the Suicide Squad and Justice League, DC decided to do something good and real. Though both movies brought in some new characters from comics like Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Aquaman, The Flash, and more. But they did not succeed in winning the hearts of the audience. DC Films and Warner Bros. have lately struggled to build the same kind of blockbuster movie universe as Marvel Studios.
Although later, DC came back with its mega turn-ins like Shazam, Aquaman, and recent one Joker. Since Justice League, DC has shown a willingness to dabble in various genres, tones, and styles. Just a while ago, Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker came in, and it was a significant success. Joker also became the first R-rated most grossing movie of all time. And Warner Bros. is set to fill all its upcoming year’s schedule with most of the DCEU’s movies. Some of the biggie DC movies are on their way to the fans. Let’s take a look at all the details regarding the future Warner Bros. movies.
