Warner Bros WB is trying a few unique and different things with the DC movies department and they are all set to launch a few great animated and live-action projects. The movie, Aquaman has now left the DCEU sees to be in great shape, and the suits from WB are now pretty happy given the very fact that the Aquaman movie had earned over $1 Billion:
The DCEU is now very confident and has a list of movies planned out for the future. Let’s take a look at these:

This is the official synopsis of the film which will be the DCEU debut of Billy Batson:
“We all have a superhero inside us; it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still, a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).”
The movie will release on April 5.
The next live-action DC film will release on October 4 and it will not be a continuation of the DCEU and will be a movie set in a different continuity. The film will star Zazie Beetz, Joaquin Phoenix, Marc Maron, Frances Conroy, Bryan Callen, Brett Cullen, and also, Robert De Niro. This the official synopsis:
“Joker centres around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study but also a broader cautionary tale.”
