Maybe Cavill isn’t still Superman after all
The DC cinematic universe could be about to change in a big way, as a recent report has outlined the future big screen plans for its superhero roster – including Superman, Aquaman, and Green Lantern Corps.
First of all Variety has revealed that DC has been looking at a handful of big names for the future of The Man of Steel – despite Henry Cavill insisting he is still in the role. Chief among these actors is Black Panther’s Michael B. Jordan who has apparently been “pitching…a vision for the character” – however it is unknown as to whether he would be playing the titular role.
As well as this, J.J. Abrams has also reportedly been in talks for a Superman film, however nothing concrete has emerged from these talks.
Variety also gave 2023 as a ballpark for the Man of Steel’s return.
Aquaman 2 will see the return of James Wan as director, and will apparently begin filming in 2021 – which will also be the case for Ezra Miller’s Flash film.
Warner Bros. has also apparently labelled Green Lantern Corps as a “priority” – however there is currently no release date attached to it.
In addition to all of this, there was even a little new information of Matt Reeves’ The Batman, as reportedly the cast may have options in their deals for sequels and spinoffs, which marks a promising future for the new Dark Knight outing.
Until Warner Bros. confirm all this, we have to take this report with a grain of salt, but if it is to be believed, there’s a LOT of new DC films to come.
More when we have it.
