The Full COMIC BOOK Television Release Schedule

by Chris Arrant, Editor

Date: 29 July 2016 Time: 06:00 PM ET

Comic book stories and characters are thriving both on the big screen and the small screen, from live-action to animation, and even documentaries. Newsarama has compiled a list of all the current, upcoming, and prospective television series based on comic books.

Like our list of comic book-based superhero movies and other genre movies, we're not including production info such as cast, crew or plot; this is just an easy-to-read look at what's to come on North American television.

Here is a complete schedule of the announced television series and their status. Those signed to networks will be denoted as such with those outlets in parenthesis, while the other prospective series with no broadcast home as of yet will simply list their production company.

Due to the nature of some comic books being optioned for a television series but never actually being made, we are only listing projects with some sign of life in the past 48 months.

It is according to IMDb, but there hasn't been an update in a long time.

Mike, I know that there is a supposed leak of new WB plans for the DCEU with several new movies slotted in, the Cyborg one being removed and talk of DCEU based shows on HBO and animated DTVs. What do you make of the rumors and the source? I would guess NYCC would be the earliest we'd hear anything official...

I'm glad you posted this, Jim. Because if you hadn't, I wouldn't have heard a word about it. :wink: I'm taking my usual post-SDCC break from the internet and I haven't been spending much time online at all. Your post is the first I've heard of this.

I googled DCEU HBO and I found this link from screengeek.net. I assume this is the leak you are talking about.

If any of this is true, it is indeed interesting. A lot of this makes sense. HBO is a division of Time Warner (It was last year when Zack Snyder was in talks with HBO to produce a Watchmen series). Time Warner also of course owns the CW, but as we all know the CW DC shows are a separate continuity from the movies. The theoretical HBO shows could be a whole different animal and tie-in with the films.

And a Teen Titans movie makes more sense than a solo Cyborg movie. And a Titans movie is a good place to use Slade Wilson. Solo Batman and Superman movies are no brainers. Not wanting to use Darkseid for awhile because of his similarity to Thanos makes sense.

IF (And I say again, IF) this is true, I hope Warners makes an announcement at a fan event instead of on an investor conference call. Everybody remembers when Marvel made their Phase 3 announcement at the El Capitan theater in front of hundreds of screaming fans. DC could generate the same level of excitement if they play their cards right.

Well, the Baltimore Comic Con is going on this weekend. So's Fan Expo Canada in Toronto.

But if this is too soon and Warner's really wants to make sure they have all their cinematic ducks in a row, then yes, NYCC would be the place to do it. Madison Square Garden awaits.

We shall see what we shall see.

And for those too lazy to click on links :wink: , here's the full story from screengeek:

Rumor: Large List of Warner Bros. Future Plans For The DCEU Leaks

Frank Palmer August 31, 2016 News

There are a ton of rumors coming out as of late. As you all probably know, DC is hosting a large event on September 2nd that will reveal a lot of their upcoming plans for the DCEU. Apparently, however, a large list of rumors was posted on Reddit – and they don’t seem too far off (some of them anyway):

The initial post was taken down, but we managed to get it all down:

- Cyborg is out, folks. Expect a full Titans flick with Deathstroke as the main antagonist. Nightwing is in it, though, if that’s any consolation. Cyborg will be in the Flash movie. Barry and Vic knew each other in school.

- Deathstroke was offered to a bunch of actors but it ultimately went to Joe Manganiello.

- Sequel to Man of Steel will be released in 2020 (the name Superman will not be in the title). Villain is Braniac. They’re trying to court several directors including J.J. Abrams and Duncan Jones. Other characters being considered include Supergirl and Superboy. Lex Luthor will be a key character in Brainiac’s new origin. I believe the origin they have planned at the moment is Lex uses Kryptonian and alien tech to enhance LexOS and it becomes Brainiac. From what I’ve seen though, they DEFINITELY want Brainiac in a physical comic book-y form, not as some AI controlling drones or machines or something.

- Edgar Wright is also being courted for a DCEU project.

- They’re trying not to make Justice League feel overcrowded but it’s very clear that there is a lot they’re working with already. Looking to be a long movie. They know they can’t cut out a ton of stuff and repeat past mistakes.

- Justice League’s villain is Steppenwolf as you all know. The League fights Parademons for a good chunk of the film. Lex is let out of prison and gets the public to love him. He tries to manipulate the public into hating heroes like Batman and Superman but it doesn’t work. Lex helps Steppenwolf come to Earth in exchange for technology and knowledge. Lex is very manipulative and much calmer than he was in BvS. He’s also much scarier in my opinion. There’s a funny scene after the League is assembled where Joker and Harley are committing a crime and they expect Batman to show up…when the whole League arrives. It’s really funny and Joker and Harley just stand there, not knowing what to do now. Kind of like a “Well…shingbling” moment. Later, the League get their asses kicked by Steppenwolf but then Superman returns and weakens him. The full Justice League then works together to defeat Steppenwolf in an awesome climactic fight reminiscent of the big fight scene in The Avengers. Superman has a beard, long hair, tattered/scorched-looking black suit, and is thin at first (not as thin as Flashpoint Superman but still thin). During the fight with Steppenwolf, you see his full strength return with each swing and with each second he’s in the sunlight. Green Lantern shows up at the very very end of the film (may even be moved to mid/post-credit scene). There’s a full Darkseid tease at the end buuuuut…

- Justice League 2 may or may not use Darkseid as the villain. The biggest concern is comparisons to Thanos. They may hold off and use him further down the line once the dust has settled following Infinity War. Other villains being considered are the Injustice League, the Crime Syndicate and The Society. They really want multiple villains for the sequel for some reason. Tower of Babel is also being discussed as a possible plot.

- Justice League 2 will be pushed back to the end of 2019 to make room for Justice League Dark (which will have a different title to not confuse moviegoers).

- Aquaman will release August 2018. The villain is Black Manta, though as far as I know he has not been cast yet. The concept sketches do show the full suit which made me very excited. They want Black Manta to be a Darth Vader-esque character, in that his voice and presence is intimidating and terrifying even when he’s not fighting. Aqualad is in it and serves his father for a good chunk of the film. He eventually switches sides and helps Aquaman. There’s a cool fight scene planned where Aquaman and Aqualad fight Black Manta’s army before Aquaman goes off to fight Black Manta at the end.

- Flash’s release date is March 2018. Villains are the Rogues, led by a really…creepy Captain Cold. The film is going to be really fun but Captain Cold is…strange. Creepy is really the best way I can describe it. I’m not entirely sold on the concept so hopefully it’ll work better on the big screen. He wears a sleek mechanical suit that has the same color scheme and pattern as his comic book incarnation. They noticed how fan’s loved the Speedforce scenes in the show and hope to put their own spin on something similar.

- The Batman film (right now called The Batman though they’re considering other titles) will release October 5 2018. Current plot has Black Mask as the main villain breaking other villains out of Arkham to kill Batman. Joker and Harley have a subplot involving a bomb to blow up all the inmates once Batman recaptures them all that results in Harley leaving the Joker because of the abuse and Batman trying to rehabilitate her. Deathstroke is sent in by Waller to help contain the situation so she can use them for her own means but Batman fights Deathstroke and promises Waller that he’s coming for her next. Deadshot is also in it but leaves the Asylum to be with his daughter instead of getting his revenge on Batman. There’s a really cool scene where Black Mask lines all the villains up and asks who will join him to get revenge (this scene will focus a lot on Deadshot’s reactions, making it clear he wants only freedom). Many of the villains get away in the end, with Batman promising to hunt them all down. The film will end with Batman overlooking Gotham and seeing one of the B-List villains (has yet to be decided) committing a crime.

- Luke Evans was approached to play Sinestro in Green Lantern Corps. Not sure if he agreed. The film will be lighthearted and fun. They’re modeling the tone after old cheesy sci-fi serials. As of right now, the villain will be Sinestro with a tease of Atrocitus towards the end (subject to change however). They want to explore the various Lantern Corps with this film and the sequels.

- They want to do something fresh and new to revamp Black Adam in Shazam. From what I’ve heard, Dwayne Johnson has been in constant communication about what they could do to make this film better. Billy is also a huge Justice League fan and he meets them at the end of the film as Shazam.

- Misha Collins, Channing Tatum, Milo Ventimiglia, Steven Yeun, and Jake Gyllenhaal have been approached for various roles.

- Rob Lowe was approached to play one of the villains in the Flash film. They apparently really want him to play a villain.

- Emily Blunt, Rosamund Pike, Alexandria Daddario, and Jessica Chastain have also been approached.

- Expect full trailers for both Wonder Woman and Justice League emphasizing the “fun” of these movies. The Wonder Woman trailer shows the villain a little. Also expect a bunch of announcements regarding casting, release dates being moved, a few new films being added to the slate, plans for DCEU shows and DCEU animated movies (no shows or movies will be announced, just that they will make stuff that tie in), and more.

- Going off that last bit, they’re planning on bringing the DCEU shows to HBO exclusively. Ideas being tossed around include Birds of Prey, Nightwing, The Question (heavily being considered as being the first, last I heard), The Phantom Stranger, Zatanna, and Doctor Fate.

- The animated films will show what some of the characters are up to during the events of the other films.

- Suicide Squad 2 will happen though after 2020, likely to be 2021. Will have a slightly altered roster. It also will not be directed by David Ayer.

- The DCEU has been mapped out to about 2025.

- The Booster Gold/Blue Beetle movie is up in the air right now. They’re leaning on the edge of approving it after the success of Deadpool but may use it as an HBO show.


Some of the rumors are things that have been making their way around the internet for some time now. It definitely seems like George Miller will direct a DC film sooner than later – as well as J.J. Abrams.

In my opinion, I found it very interesting that Black Mask is *allegedly* the villain in the upcoming Batman film. It’s been reported (but not confirmed) that Deathstroke is the main villain and the interesting thing is that this rumor still says he’s in the film.

Some don’t put a lot of stock into these type of things but they haven’t really been THAT far off. When we reported that Doug Liman was being considered to direct Man of Steel 2, the following week the director was confirmed for Justice League Dark. So to say that the director was possibly considered for the Superman sequel – seems pretty legit.

Emily Blunt ... Zatanna?

Rosamund Pike ... Black Canary?

Alexandria Daddario ... Starfire?

Jessica Chastain ... Poison Ivy?

God, I don't know. Wonder Woman, Mera and Harley have already been cast, of course, but everything else is wide open. Hawkgirl, Supergirl, Wonder Girl, Stargirl, Batgirl, Batwoman, Mary Marvel, Huntress, Oracle, Big Barda, Fire, Ice, Star Sapphire, Power Girl, Raven ...

Catwoman. Who's going to play Catwoman? Probably not Halle Berry.

And that's just the female side of the equation. Who's going to play Nightwing? Green Arrow? Constantine? (Probably not Keanu.)

NYCC is October 6th through the 9th. Answers may be forthcoming.

Or not.

Only the crystal ball knows for sure.

Yeah, yeah... Not the story I found but the same list.

Please, not Jennifer Garner...


You brought up Watchmen up there... I've been wondering, ya know, considering what is going on in the comics right now, does that now make Watchmen the first entry in the DCEU?...

I will guess no. I think that first Watchmen film will be regulated to the same dark, dank place that the Ryan Reynolds Green Lantern, Halle Berry Catwoman, Keanu Reeves Constantine and Josh Brolin Jonah Hex films got sent to. The chamber of horrors called "It doesn't count". Man of Steel is still the first movie in the DCEU.

This hypothetical HBO Watchmen series (story here) is a whole different animal, though. That could very well be part of the DCEU. Although I should point out that it's been almost a year since we heard anything about this. I don't know if this is still on the table or not.

A few other things in the screengeek report I wanted to comment on:

The "some reason" is simple. More villains means more toys! Warners/DC needs to try and make Mattel happy.

Quote:

Again, it makes sense. More characters means more toys.

We will know more of DC/Warners plans before the year is out, I'm sure.

In the meantime, we need more crystal ball covers.

You know what? These all actually sound like good ideas. Now if they'll just recast Connie Nielson in any potential Wonder Woman sequel...

That being said, it IS a bit galling that DC is taking the tack of having Darkseid play second fiddle to Thanos. It SHOULD be the other way around, and DC is far too timid on the subject in my opinion.

Personally, I hope they do hold off on Darkseid. I've gotten tired of him being seen as the only serious threat that the Justice League can have.

I think if they want to make it awesome (without getting snyder off the project), they should use the society of super villains. It's a comic version of the Legion of Doom and it would do something marvel hasn't done yet: put together all the heroes AND villains from the previous movies. That, to me, is literally the only way this could be good and unique. But, as has been proven with the first three movies, give snyder and johns a good idea to work with and they will find a way to make it shingyblingy.
