‘Justice League’ to hit theatres in May 2017

Even as Marvel Studios continues to add to its slew of spandex-clad good guys, DC has struggled to expand its stable beyond Batman and Superman, a dilemma emblemized by Zack Snyder’s awkwardly-titled ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’.

But now things look a lot different, as according to the entertainment blogger Nikki Finke’ post last week, what seems as a leaked production schedule, one that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment were apparently hoping to unveil at next month’s San Diego Comic-Con. The list, which has since been all but confirmed by filmmaker and Fat Man on Batman podcaster Kevin Smith, includes a seven movies revolving around every character from ‘Shazam’ and ‘Sandman’, each one slated for release at some point during the next four years. If the schedule holds true, DC could easily find itself releasing two to three movies a year for the projected future.

Here’s the alleged roadmap:

May 2016 – Batman v Superman; July 2016 – Shazam; Xmas 2016 – Sandman; May 2017 – Justice League; July 2017 – Wonder Woman; Xmas 2017 – Flash and Green Lantern team-up and May 2018 – Man Of Steel 2.

Finke also reported that ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ was delayed so that the story could be tweaked to help set up 2017?s Justice League. After years of uncertainty, it looks like DC finally has a workable game plan.
