Marvel Studios has spent nearly a decade building up their cinematic universe with some of the most popular movies being produced in Hollywood, but in the next few years DC Comics and Warner Bros. plan to increase the competition. The release of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel in 2013 kicked things off, and 2016 extended the timeline with two new DC movies being released every year up to and including 2020.

But what are the titles that make up this impressive slate? Who are the filmmakers making the movies, and who will be starring? Well, we've organized all that information for you below, so read on to have your big questions answered!

2017

Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman – June 2, 2017
After once being attached to direct Marvel Studios’ Thor: The Dark World, Patty Jenkins is helming Wonder Woman - which will be the DC Cinematic Universe’s first period film. Set during the years of World War I, the first big screen adventure for Princess Diana of Themyscira (Gal Gadot) will both dive deep into her origins as a demi-god, but also her first experiences in the world of man (personified, largely, by co-star Chris Pine). What’s unclear at this stage is how the film will ultimately connect with the larger DCU, though the latest trailer did show Diana in modern-day Paris.

This will be the first Wonder Woman-centric project since the failed TV pilot that was made a few years ago with Adrianne Palicki, but obviously has a chance to make a major impact on the comic book movie world (especially because of its lead female character). Obviously Gal Gadot’s first performance as the character in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will give us a much clearer idea of what to expect from the upcoming solo movie – but it’s also worth noting that the film has the distinction of being the last solo movie before the big event title set to come out later in 2017: Justice League.

Justice League
Justice League – November 17, 2017
Warner Bros. and DC Comics have been working for years to try and make a Justice League movie, and a few years ago even lined up an entire ensemble for a production that was to have director George Miller at the helm. Delays of a wide variety have prevented the project from happening, but the wait will soon be over. Thanks to the growing DC Cinematic Universe, we will soon see one of the greatest superhero teams of all time unite for the first time in live action on the big screen.

In late 2017, audiences will finally get to see the top tier heroes of DC Comics unite as the Justice League to take down Steppenwolf, an enemy hinted at in deleted scenes from Batman v Superman. The film will be the third in the growing cinematic universe to be directed by Zack Snyder, with an official Justice League line-up that will include Batman, Superman (yes, back from the dead), Wonder Woman, The Flash, Cyborg and Aquaman. Who are they fighting? We have that answer. Get the latest news and information about Justice League HERE.
