Warner Bros planning lots more DC movies

Aquaman, Green Arrow, The Flash, Suicide Squad and more are in development at Warner Bros. Possibly Green Lantern 2, as well…

There have been a couple of interesting pieces of news over the past week from Warner Bros, as it looks to properly work with its DC Comics catalogue of characters, and replicate the success Marvel has enjoyed with its Avengers project. Thus, we’ve learned that screenplays for both Wonder Woman and Justice League have been ordered.

However, Variety is now reporting that the studio has more up its sleeve.

Firstly, it’s still mulling over whether to press ahead with Green Lantern 2. We thought this one was dead in the water, but it turns out that there’s still a flicker of hope for the return of Ryan Reynolds and a further Lantern movie. The first film got generally poor reviews, and outside of America did very little business. But Warner Bros’ reasoning will be that it’s spent heavily to launch the franchise, and that it should be a little easier to sell this time around. If it doesn’t press ahead with Green Lantern 2, it might just wait a while and press the reboot button.

However, it turns out that there are more DC projects that are now being developed within Warner Bros. Lobo has been known about for a whole, but Aquaman, The Flash, Green Arrow, Suicide Squad and Shazam are reportedly in development. It’s unlikely that every one of those will make it to the big screen, but we’d expect a few to.

There’s no word yet on who’s penning scripts for any of the above, but as we learn more about them, we’ll pass the information on…
