At a presentation to investors on Wednesday morning, Warner Bros CEO Kevin Tsujihara unveiled his studio's blockbuster movie slate for the next few years through to 2020, finally confirming the titles for an ambitious number of movies based on DC Comics superhero properties.

The announcement confirms that we will finally see a long-awaited Wonder Woman movie in 2017. Gal Gadot will reprise the role after 2016's Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice. The announcement also includes the expected Justice League movie -- and a sequel -- the previously announced Suicide Squad movie, and pictures starring Justice League members Aquaman, Flash, Green Lantern, and Cyborg. This means DC now has one superhero movie in the works with a female lead, and three with non-white leads.

Fisher will be joining a Batman Vs. Superman cast that's already pretty stacked, with Henry Cavill and Amy Adams reprising their roles as Hopeman Superman and Lois Lane, respectively, along with Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ben Affleck as Batman and Gal Godot as Wonder Woman.
