Four months ago, after the success of the Captain America: Winter Soldier’s opening weekend, Marvel announced that Captain America 3 would be produced and released on May 6, 2016. This is the same date that DC’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice film was slated. This was widely seen as shots fired across DC’s bow, whose film franchise plans depend widely upon the success of Batman v Superman. If DC has any hope of replicating Marvel’s film franchise success, it needs Batman v Superman to do well, as it will introduce, not only a new Batman (portrayed by Ben Affleck), but also Wonder Woman (played by Gal Gadot) in a lead up to what is widely speculated to be a Justice League movie.

Today, in a move that has suprised few, DC and Warner Bros. have announced a new release date, March 25th, 2016.

Additionally, Warner Bros. announced 9 more theatrical release dates for as yet unnamed films. See them and more speculation after the break!

Warner Bros. Theatrical releases:
Untitled DC Film – August 5, 2016
Untitled DC Film – June 23, 2017
Untitled DC Film – November 17, 2017
Untitled DC Film – March 23, 2018
Untitled DC Film – July 27, 2018
Untitled WB Event Film – November 16, 2018
Untitled DC Film – April 5, 2019
Untitled DC Film – June 14, 2019
Untitled DC Film – April 3, 2020
Untitled DC Film – June 19, 2020
Untitled WB Event Film – November 20, 2020

The WB Event Films are not necessarily DC related in anyway.
A possible list of DC films was leaked a couple months ago. That list included:
Batman v Superman
Justice League
Wonder Woman
Flash and Green Lantern team-up
Man Of Steel 2

It is likely that since Marvel recently released a list of their own future film dates, Warner Bros. was comfortable setting their own flags in the ground to avoid further future competition and also avoid any more overlap with Marvel.
Marvel’s dates included (with known existing dates as well):
May 1, 2015 – Avengers: Age of Ultron
July 17, 2015 – Ant-Man
May 6, 2016 – Captain America 3
July 8, 2016
May 5, 2017
July 28, 2017
November 3, 2017
July 6, 2018
November 2, 2018
May 3, 2019

It is believed the July 8th film in 2016 will be Dr. Strange.

Treat it as extremely skeptical rumors. The order doesn’t make a lot of sense for some of the story lines. There is also seemingly no obvious movies outside of Guardians of the Galaxy that Thanos could disrupt with the Infinity Gauntlet. Y’know, should he get that. 😉
