DCEU vs MCU. This has been the big match-up on the silver screen over the last few years, and Marvel has come out on top 9 out of 10 times. This doesn’t mean that DC is done and dusted, but it only means that the massive organization needs to reprioritize their time and resources. The global audience for these films remains incredible, an incentive large enough to make DC pick themselves up off the ground. DCEU revealed its next set of films during Comic-Con, San Diego, and the list is quite impressive (on paper at least).

Expected Names Return

We all know about the upcoming Justice League film that also received a second trailer during Comic-Con yesterday. The other expected titles on DCEU’s immediate list involves solo films for “Aquaman,” “Shazam,” and “The Batman.” While we are yet to see Shazam appear in the DCEU, the standalone Aquaman and Batman films will lend much-needed perspective to the current cinematic universe.

New Titles Emerge

There were plenty of surprises in store for fans on DCEU’s list as well, including sequels to the highly acclaimed “Wonder Woman” film, and the highly controversial “Suicide Squad” as well.

We will also soon be seeing a solo “Batgirl” film – another much needed first for DCEU, along with the first non-animated “Justice League Dark” film.

Another pleasant surprise by DCEU included the reveal that there is a “Green Lantern Corps” film under development as well. Although it comes as no real surprise that Green Lantern is being revived after the horrible take featuring Ryan Reynolds, it is good to know that the film will be centered around the entire Corps and not just a singular lantern.

The fact the “The Flash: Flashpoint” film is under-development as well became the biggest reveal of the evening. For those who aren’t aware of the arc, Flashpoint involved the events just before DC rebooted their series to the New 52. During this period, Flash travels back in time to save his mother, but his actions end up having disastrous effects on the world, including drastically changing the fate of his fellow Justice League members as well.

Flashpoint is one of the most beloved arcs in DC history, and it will be fascinating to see it play out on the big screen. The fact that DC didn’t mention the “Black Adam,” “Cyborg,” “Nightwing,” or Gotham City Sirens” movie tells us that these films have been pushed to the back of the line of now. Either way, it continues to be an exciting time for comic book fans around the world with big reveals by DC and Marvel during Comic-Con, San Diego.
