DC is taking some huge steps this year when it comes to building up their own cinematic universe. “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is set to introduce a new Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg and production on “Justice League” beings in April. The Flash and Aquaman won’t have very big roles in “Batman v Superman” but luckily both heroes have their own solo films on the way.
“Justice League” is set for release in 2017 with solo films for The Flash and Aquaman set for release in 2018. Producer Charles Roven confirmed that when we meet up with The Flash and Aquaman in their own solo films, they will picking up where they left off in “Justice League.” Unlike The Flash and Aquaman, Wonder Woman’s movie will be released before “Justice League” and it’s rumored that her solo adventure will help to setup the conflict for the ensemble film.
Chris Terrio is writing the script for “Justice League” and he seems to be taking the job very seriously. The Academy Award winning writer has been spending a lot of time doing research on topics that are relevant to the characters. According to the Wall Street Journal, “He studied red- and blueshifts in electromagnetic physics to think about the Flash, investigated deep sea biology in the Mariana trench to create the world of Aquaman, and read the Greek historian Diodorus of Sicily’s account of the war between Amazon and Atlantis to better understand Wonder Woman.”
Big things are coming for DC’s film universe and it all kicks off when “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
