CAN’T DENY IT

I can’t deny it.
I’m getting a tad excited about some upcoming movies from the DC Universe.

With the recent Marvel storming of cinemas some fans have been left wondering if DC have been left behind a little.
OK, we’ve had a fantastic Batman trilogy with Christian Bale and the recent complete re-boot of Superman with the perfectly cast Henry Cavill.
Red was hilarious and V for Vendetta was successful but not one of my favourites and Watchmen is turning into a bit of a cult but again, not one of my favourites and Green Lantern was a bit of a travesty!

Anyway, we have Superman vs Batman due out next year.
Henry Cavill again dons the red cape but we have an older Batman being played by Ben Afleck!!
I must admit I was very dubious when I first heard about this but, after seeing this trailer, it has dispelled any fears and I’m now chomping on the bit to see it.

We have a Wonder Woman movie due in 2017 and an Aquaman and Flash movies due in 2018, S.H.A.Z.A.M (Captain Marvel) planned in 2019 and Cyborg and a Re-booted Green Lantern planned for 2020
I just hope they stay away from the camp 70’s styling of Wonder Woman and steer clear of that ridiculous invisible jet!!
Aquaman is popping up in Batman vs Superman to give us a taste of things to come and if this first image of Jason Momoa is anything to go by, we are in for quite a ride!!

Aquaman

Batman, Superman, Wonderwoman and Aquaman are all teaming up for Two Justice League movies in 2017 and 2019 with the likelyhood of more characters being added to the lineup.

But without a doubt, the DC movie I am absolutely dying to see at the moment is Suicide Squad!
I can’t deny it, I’m a tad biased when it comes to this movie as my current favourite actor is leading the Squad!!
Joel Kinnaman is playing Rick Flagg and he will be keeping characters like Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Boomerang, Katana, Killer Croc, Slipknot and Joker under control and it looks like Ben Afleck’s Batman gets in on the action too!!

DC characters are going to be roaming freely through all the films forming links throughout the whole DC Universe.
So it looks like the next few years is going to be a battle between Marvel and DC.

CAN’T WAIT!!
