The rumor mill was churning today, with news being passed along like a bad game of telephone. A report today came out from Nikki Finke, former Deadline honcho, claims to list DC‘s upcoming movies through 2018.
May 2016 – Batman v Superman
July 2016 – Shazam
Xmas 2016 – Sandman
May 2017 – Justice League
July 2017 – Wonder Woman
Xmas 2017 – Flash and Green Lantern team-up
May 2018 – Man Of Steel 2
There had been talk of a Metal Men and Suicide Squad movie for sometime in 2016 but that project fell off the schedule.
Finke claims to late start to Batman V Superman is due to DC attempting to get this all settled down.
There’s numerous reasons I expect this all to be bullshit and click bait. One is, it ignores projects we’ve been told are being worked on, like the Justice League Dark film. The second big reason I don’t believe this is the history. It was about this time last year that it was rumored Cable, X-Force, Deadpool, Aquaman, the Flash, and Wonder Woman were all being announced as movies at SDCC 2013. We all know how that turned out.
While I’m sure DC is putting a plan together, I’ll believe this when I hear it directly from DC.

It’s Monday and that means a brand new Facebook Fandom spotlight where I look at the statistic of Facebook users when it comes to some part of geek fandom. With so much buzz recently about comic book movies and casting, I thought it might be interesting to look at various comic-based movies and how they did individually and as a series when it comes to gender.
The first thing that stands out to me is that both Catwoman and Elektra have women as the majority of their “likes.” Men in Black as a franchise does well, but though it shows women as a majority, they are most likely just under 50% due to Facebook’s returning fuzzy results with large numbers such as this.
But, what also stands out is Superman Returns being split exactly 50/50 when it comes to men and women. Director Bryan Singer has spoken about how he wanted a movie that would appeal to women as well as men, and it looks like he achieved that according to these numbers.
Many movies on this list came out well before Facebook existed, but overall the results are interesting to me.
Constantine which will soon be a television series does shockingly well when it comes to gender, with 45% women, and the recently rumored Fantastic Four casting had me interested in those results, which was some of the worst when it came to women with 16.67% for the franchise.
