    Dark Universe (or whatever it's being called) isn't counted as part of the DC extended film universe.

    Yeah, hopefully they'll reveal their revised slate at one of the usual venues - WonderCon, Comic Con, NYCC, etc.

    Well, that initial report/rumor didn't last long. It was because of the whole New Line Cinemas developing some of the projects that there was a lot of "JL Dark & Sandman would be split from the DCEU". Now, that's not the case, especially for Sandman which was shelved.

    A minor correction, in December 2014, Del Toro said it was in the shared universe and the same report said Sandman wasn't. But there was wishy washy comments. In another, he said if it was he would honor it. Others, he said it was. In June 2015, it was reported that was staying the same. In August 2016, it was reported to play a major role in the shared universe amid the Liman news.

    Reports of the status of Dark Universe within the DC extended film universe seem to be all over the place and contradictory with each other. The last I knew it was a stand-alone movie, but it seems that may have changed. It might be that we aren't seeing it on the schedule because of its development status or lack of same. I would think that we will learn more if or when Dark Universe is green-lighted.

    Of note: Toby Emmerich replaces Silverman:

    He's responsible for Austin Powers, Elf, and Blade trilogy. A tiny glimmer of hope at WB. We'll see what happens in a few years.

    I admit, it would feel kind of full-circle to have Bridges, who played the starter villain of the MCU, end up playing the DCEU's overarching main villain :cool:.

    Bleh, I think the DC cinematic universe is pretty...... doomed :( Something is down right broken in their system. It was also a disastrous blunder to put Zack Snyder in charge and DC just chose to play it safe by repeating the same tone and gritiness of Nolan's films because they made money, ergo a Dark Aquaman movie can make money...???

    I rather have DC just reboot ther films to fit the more Golden Age tone we see in the comics and the things we've seen in Justice League Unlimited and Action. Those shows love superheroes. The movies just make them look unlikable :/

    I'll be honest, I like Black Adam, but I don't think he needs his own standalone prequel movie chronicling his fall of grace before we get to Billy's story.

    Of course, they've been promoting Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam for who knows how long and he's been heavily involved in the production, so I can't say I'm surprised...

    I have never said this before, even when so many others were, but I'll say it now...it really seems like thay don't have much of a plan right now, and are just announcing things all willy-nilly.

    I do get it though; Johnson is a HUGE star right now, and he probably didn't want to just play a villain. But still, a Black Adam film before Shazam? Heck, at least the Squad spinoff made sense.

    This reminds me of how we got a Scorpion King film. Yeah, why in the world would we have a Black Adam film?

    So what does everyone think DC should do scheduling wise for their movies?

    Of course, Wonder Woman and Justice League are coming out this year (assuming nothing changes). Aquaman is planned for 2018. I think DC should continue with Batman in 2018 or 2019 depending on how production goes. Meanwhile, I think The Flash and Shazam could be 2019 and everything else could be 2020 and beyond.
