Along with debuting the “Wonder Woman 1984” trailer, Warner Bros. Pictures used their CCXP panel on Sunday to make a couple of announcements.
First up, the official title of the third main film in “The Conjuring” franchise won’t be “The Conjuring 3” but rather “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It”. That film will open in theaters nationwide on September 11th next year.
One of the most sensational cases from the files of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, the film starts with a fight for the soul of a young boy which then goes beyond anything ever seen before – marking the first time in U.S. history that a murder suspect would claim demonic possession as a defense.
Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga return as the Warrens while Ruairi O’Connor, Sarah Catherine Hook, and Julian Hilliard co-star. James Wan only produces this time, handing over the directorial reins to Michael Chaves.
Next, Warners also officially confirmed that a “Shazam” sequel is a go and Zachary Levi will be back in the role, but it’s unclear when production will begin. Levi himself previously suggested shooting could begin as early as summer 2020.
Then, filmmaker Matt Reeves confirmed that the studio is planning something big for next year’s CCXP for the upcoming Robert Pattinson-led “The Batman”. Reeves recorded a video message for DC fans in attendance teasing the CCXP 2020 appearance. With the film shooting early next year for a June 25th 2021 release, the most likely possibility will be the debut of the film’s first trailer.
James Gunn also appeared in a video bit, confirming “The Suicide Squad” title as the name of his film along with its August 6th 2021 release date.
Warners also showed off a quick reel of footage from their films which included a super brief shot from next year’s “Godzilla vs. Kong” with a glimpse at a scene in which Kong punches the giant lizard whilst the pair are facing each other in the middle of a city.
Finally, two more posters from the “Birds of Prey” movie have also gone online. Check those out below:
