Faster than a speeding bullet, Comic-Con is upon once again. The biggest, nerdiest party in the world kicks off on Wednesday in San Diego and, yes, Team ScreenCrush will be on hand to cover it all. With Marvel, Sony, and Paramount, all sitting out this year’s big geek bash, the clear #1 panel to anticipate is Warner Bros. Saturday morning showcase of their upcoming slate. The presentation will include clips from the new live-action Pan starring Hugh Jackman, and the movie version of the ’60s spy series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. But the star attraction is unquestionably an appearance by Zack Snyder and the stars of next spring’s hotly anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
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. ComicsAlliance’s own graphics maestro Dylan Todd put together a timeline that reveals what the next six years of superhero movies look like, with some dates and titles still to be announced. The graphic will be updated as new information is released.
Most of the focus on the upcoming 'Justice League' movie has been on Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash and Aquaman. Primarily because those are the most well-known characters and we know the actors playing them (Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller and Jason Momoa, respectively.) But, there's one additional member of the Justice League that will be joining the team and has already filming his 'Batman vs. Superman' appearance: Cyborg.
Since Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot joined the cast of 'Batman vs. Superman,' we've been wondering how much of the film would function as 'Justice League: Origins.' Now that Ray Fisher has joined the cast as Cyborg, there's no mistaking that the film is meant to launch DC's version of 'The Avengers.'
