DC has 7 superhero movies with official release dates - here are all the details
- Warner Bros.' DC superhero movies rebounded after "Aquaman," and are moving forward with a new strategy.
- Seven upcoming movies have official release dates between now and 2022, including "Wonder Woman" and "Aquaman" sequels.
The DC movie universe seemed stalled after "Justice League," but it rebounded with the success of "Aquaman" last year, which made over $1 billion worldwide.
What's known as the "DC Extended Universe" got off to a bumpy start with "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and "Suicide Squad" in 2016, which performed well at the box office but were trashed by critics. "Justice League" put the nail in that particular coffin when it underperformed critically and commercially.READ MORE: The DC movie franchise made a comeback with 'Aquaman,' and its new strategy will distinguish it from the Marvel Cinematic Universe
But now Warner Bros. is going all in on its DC superhero movies with renewed confidence and a new strategy that's focused more on standalone stories rather than a connected universe. 2017's "Wonder Woman" and "Aquaman" proved the strategy could work, and the upcoming movies will likely capitalize on that.
The studio has seven release dates set for DC movies that range from sequels to origin stories to whatever "Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)" will be. More movies are in development beyond that that don't have official release dates yet, such as an "Aquaman" horror spin-off about the Trench creatures.
