While Marvel has been relatively forthcoming about their upcoming movies, DC Comics has been much more secretive. Aside from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League and Shazam, that haven’t clued in the rest of the world on their upcoming film projects... that is, until now. Earlier today at a shareholder meeting, Warner Bros. unveiled their DC film slate. Kicking off with Batman v Superman in 2016, there will be at total of 11 films released between now and 2020, and maybe more.

There were also a few casting reveals and confirmations, giving us a better idea of what the cinematic Justice League lineup will be like. It’s a lot of information to take in, so we’ve compiled all we’ve learned about this projects - whether it’s from today’s announcement or previous reports. Wondering when each film will come out? Who’s going to star in the film? How might they affect the DC Cinematic Universe? Find out below!

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Release Date: March 25, 2016

Stars: Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White and Diane Lane as Martha Kent. Zack Snyder is directing

Possible Plot: While the exact details of the story are unclear, the film’s Batman will be partly inspired by Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, while Wonder Woman will retain her demigod origins from the New 52. At San Diego Comic-Con, there was a brief clip of Batman wearing armor while Superman’s eyes glowed with heat vision, so it’s possible that these two might come to blows during the movie like they did in The Dark Knight Returns. Regardless, Lex Luthor is the film’s main villain, so they will probably end up working together to stop him. Given its title, it’s also pretty obvious that this film is intended to set up Justice League.
