On Wednesday, January 30th, Warner Brothers finally confirmed the release dates of two highly anticipated DC films, and it seems we’ve still got quite a bit of waiting to do.
The promising but unarguably disappointing 2016 film, Suicide Squad, was met with severely mixed reactions. From high praise to laughable critiques, what almost everyone can seem to agree on is that the premise was fantastic; the execution, however, was not. But fans have hope for the sequel, especially considering that James Gunn, AKA writer and director of Guardians Of The Galaxy 1 & 2, is penning the script! The film is set to hit theaters August 6, 2021, so we have some waiting to do.
As for The Batman? Well, we don’t know a whole lot yet! Warner Brothers confirmed that the film would hit theaters on June 25, 2021, shortly before the Suicide Squad sequel. The film will be produced and directed by Matt Reeves, but former Caped Crusader Ben Affleck’s involvement is still under wraps. The actor was originally set to direct, co-write, and star in the solo Batman film, and though he has stepped down from two of those roles, there has been no confirmation of whether or not he will co-write the film, or have much involvement at all! But his excitement for the film is as clear as day, as he showed on Twitter.
While we’re curious to find out the extent of Affleck’s involvement, we’re even more excited for casting news. The question on everyone’s mind is who will wear the cape and cowl next. Our vote is Aidan Turner. Hopefully we find out soon!
