The Warner Bros. announcement on Wednesday of ten upcoming movies based on DC Comics properties neatly fills in a calendar of dates that the studio previously provided -- and help flesh out an extraordinary timetable of DC and Marvel superhero movies over the next six years from Warner Bros, Marvel Studios, Fox, and Sony Columbia.
ComicsAlliance's own graphics maestro Dylan Todd put together a timeline that reveals what those six years look like, including 29 confirmed release dates between now and the end of 2020, with several dates and titles still to be announced. For anyone who remembers the days when just one Spider-Man movie seemed an impossible dream, it's an astonishing representation of how comic book superheroes now dominate popular entertainment.
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.

On the off chance that you still didn't think Warner Bros. was using the sequel to last year's Man of Steel to shotgun a Justice League movie franchise in an effort to keep up with the billion-dollar success of Marvel Studios' Avengers movies, here's a piece of news that should pretty much put that theory to rest: As reported by Variety today, Ray Fisher has been cast as Cyborg for the upcoming sequel to Man of Steel.
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.
When last time we saw the DC Comics Variant Play Arts Kai versions of Aquaman and Cyborg, the figures were standing stoically in a glass case at NYCC. With the figures' upcoming release in the third quarter of 2014 approaching, however, Square Enix has cut loose with new promo images each of the roughly 9" tall toys.
For obvious reasons, we're pretty big fans of triumphant returns, and there aren't many that have been as awesome as Cartoon Network's revival of Teen Titans Go!. Over the past few months, it's been a hoot to watch every week, and at San Diego, we sat down for a roundtable interview with producer Aaron Horvath and voice actors Tara Strong, Greg Cipes, Scott Menville and Khary Payton to find out just what it's like to work on the show and why they're so focused on food.
