Ahead of the film’s release, Disney has already greenlit a sequel to the critically-acclaimed live-action adaptation…
Well, this is good news.
Following the release and critical-panning of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, there’s been a lot of talk amongst the fan community about how Warner Bros. might be approaching the rest of their planned DC Cinematic Universe. With the news of some Suicide Squad reshoots underway currently as well, it seems like the studio may be taking a very close look at the rest of their plans moving forward.
However, it looks like that impressive footage released from the Wonder Woman standalone film might have been even more telling than we had thought initially.
The studio has reportedly moved the film up three weeks ahead of its previous June 23 release date to June 2nd, 2017. In addition, the studio has also pushed the Andy Serkis-directed Jungle Book: Origins, which will incorporate heavy motion-capture technology and performances, back a year to October 19th, 2018, just a few weeks ahead of the theatrical release later this month for Disney’s live-action adaptation of the iconic story.
Serkis commented on the news on Facebook with the following:
“I’ve got to say that personally I’m absolutely thrilled that Warner Brothers have changed the delivery date of our movie. The ambition for this project is huge. What we are attempting is an unprecedented level of psychological and emotional nuance in morphing the phenomenal performances of our cast into the facial expressions of our animals.”
The studio also announced three new movie release dates, with an Untitled WB Event Film grabbing the old Jungle Book slot on October 6, 2017, and a pair of Untitled DC Films set for October 5, 2018, and November 1, 2019, which if I was willing to go out on a limb, would guess that at least one of those was a solo Batman movie directed by Ben Affleck, and the other could possibly be a Man Of Steel sequel, though they could both be entirely different films.
As of right now, I think that despite the poor reviews of Batman v Superman, there seems to be a lot of good will going towards the rest of the DC Cinematic Universe right now, and I legitimately think that all of their standalone films have the possibility of being some of the best and most unique comic book movies ever. It’s just the team-up films I’m worried about at this point.
Wonder Woman will now hit theaters on June 2nd, 2017.
