Only time will tell if these movies will be worth the wait, but this is still totally exciting news. It's great to see Diana will be the first "new" cinematic Justice League character to get a solo film and they'll then focus on the other members. The press release also noted that "Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema will release a slate of at least 10 movies—as well as stand-alone Batman and Superman films—from 2016 through 2020." At least 10 and stand-alone Batman and Superman films, so it looks like the above list may not be their complete schedule. So, what do you think about this news?

I think it's funny that Cyborg is getting his own film, but still...still... doesn't have his own series.

Suicide Squad before Wonder Woman? Seriously? I love the Suicide Squad. Well, the pre-"new" 52 Suicide Squad. That said, if you're doing a Wonder Woman film, maybe show the character the respect that she is rightfully owed, and release her film before the one featuring a cast of, largely, obscure third stringers.

pleasepleaseplease just merge the new 52 trench and others storyline for the aquaman movie, and make mera extremely prominent, and have her already be his wife when introduced, not like in the throne of atlantis animated film where they have yet to meet.

K4tz posts it says Batman and Superman will be getting solo movies in that time frame, they're just not released yet, I believe.

Could 2020 have two minority-led super-hero films from WB?

I would be real happy if that were the case. I like how WB/DC is now trendsetting--forcing Marvel/Disney to up their game with female and minority characters.

I think this is fantastic news. Glad to see all the characters I wanted to get a solo movie are actually getting one. The only movie not on this list or indicated to be happening (like the Batman and Superman solos) is the Justice League Dark movie that Del Toro has been attached to direct for a while. I'm a Del Toro fanboy as well as a big fan of DC's Dark stuff so that would be even more anticipated for me than all of these movies if it was confirmed to actually be happening. Maybe they'll announce it one day. Only other minor complaint I have would be the idea of Suicide Squad being the first movie to follow up the universe building of Batman/Superman. Still, as a big DC guy, this is great news. News I have been waiting a long time to see.

I quoted the exact line from the press release, just to be safe. Seems like many people are glossing over that.

So, here it is again for people only looking at the list and then reading the comments :D

Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema will release a slate of at least 10 movies—as well as stand-alone Batman and Superman films—from 2016 through 2020.

@comicdude360: I'd rather not have the CWs' Series hands tied by what happens in the movies and just let them do their own thing.

I think it's funny that Cyborg is getting his own film, but still...still... doesn't have his own series.

Suicide Squad before Wonder Woman? Seriously? I love the Suicide Squad. Well, the pre-"new" 52 Suicide Squad. That said, if you're doing a Wonder Woman film, maybe show the character the respect that she is rightfully owed, and release her film before the one featuring a cast of, largely, obscure third stringers.

I'm sure somewhere, in the next six years, we'll get a Cyborg series. I agree regarding Suicide Squad, but It's not that big a deal.

Besides Suicide Squad and Green Lantern, all of these have leads attached. Perhaps those films do as well, but WB just hasn't released info about those leads yet? I hope we learn who will play GL soon. I'm still rooting for Chadwick Boseman.

Hah! Suicide Squad gets a movie before Justice League and Wonder Woman.

Who the f*** was the CSA that cast Ezra Miller as Flash? They need to be fired...or have their pay cut...or just get a stern scolding.

More like a couple of movies will come out and not pull in that Marvel Money that WB is so desperate for after losing their yearly Harry Potter billions, and the people signing checks will sweep it all under the rug. I think DC is currently killing it with TV and animation, but I just don't see these grand cinematic plans turning out the way they hope.

I'm so super excited for all of these movies!!!

Ezra Miller is a strange choice for Flash.

Cyborg's own movie? Cool.

Suicide Squad before JL & the other JL characters is kinda strange...
