With filming on Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” unlikely to commence until early next year, and “The Flash” still searching for a new director three months after the previous one left, it looks like James Wan’s “Aquaman” will be the sole DC Comics-inspired film to open in cinemas next year.
That means there’s a thirteen month gap between “Justice League” this November, and “Aquaman” next December. As a result, the studio is reportedly looking to fast track another DC Comics adaptation for next year according to Variety writer Justin Kroll.
The writer says five films are under consideration for such a possibility – “Gotham City Sirens,” “The Flash,” “Green Lantern Corps,” “Suicide Squad 2,” and “Dark Universe” (a.k.a. “Justice League Dark”).
Additionally it is said that if scripts aren’t ready to go, the studio will just proceed with “Aquaman”.
