Films and shows already with a release date

To start, we’ll list the shows and movies that have a (rough or precise) release date.

1. The Batman

It was a long wait until the end of DC Fandome 2021 to see the long-awaited trailer for ‘The Batman’. But it was worth it. Both for what was shown so far, as for the trailer itself.

The lead actors Robert Pattinson (Batman) and Zoe Kravitz (Cat Woman) had a relaxed chat with director Matt Reeves, where they were shown the film sets and also told about their auditions for the cast.

The cast of “The Batman” also includes Andy Serkis as Alfred, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, and Colin Farrel as Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin.

The film’s release was scheduled for June 21, 2021, but the pandemic delayed filming and thus its premiere was rescheduled for March 2022.

Check out the trailer below:

2. Black Adam

DC Fandome’s first release of the day was Warner’s release of the Black Adam teaser, which is an adaptation of Shazam’s villain starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

It didn’t reveal much, but it still was impactful! It is possible to see The Rock as Black Adam, but unfortunately, it was not possible to see his full uniform, which was covered by a cloak.

This is an old Warner project and finally, to the delight of the fans, it came out of the drawing boards. Black Adam’s cast even includes Pierce Brosnan in the role of Doctor Doom and Djimon Houston. Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra. Its debut is scheduled for July 2022.

See the teaser below:

3. Peacemaker

Anyone who watched The Suicide Squad already knows the character who is played by John Cena. Peacemaker, announced during DC Fandome 2021, will be an HBO Max series produced by none other than James Gunn. The series will delve deeper into the character by showing a new mission to save the world.

In an interview, James Gunn said he was very excited to expand the universe of The Suicide Squad and bring Peacemaker to a series in the DC universe. As with ‘The Batman’, there was also a chat with the cast prior to the unveiling of the first trailer for ‘Peacemaker’.

The first season will feature eight episodes and is scheduled to premiere on January 13, 2022.

Check out the trailer:

4. The Flash

The teaser for the new movie was presented right at the beginning of DC Fandome 2021 and brought some news. Everything indicates that we are going to see in this movie the beginning of the Flashpoint arc, when The Flash tries to save his mother and makes a mess of the DC timeline.

Definitely, this movie is a long-awaited one. The Flash had little participation in the movie The Justice League (2017), but in Zack Snyder’s Justice League version (2021), it was rewarded.

Actor Ezra Miller plays the role of Barry Allen and the film is directed by Andy Muschietti. Ben Affleck from Batman vs Superman and the Justice League will return to the Batman mantle, as well as Michael Keaton from the 1989 Batman.

The film will premiere on 03/11/2022.

5. Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom

The new film announced at DC Fandome 2021, will continue the story of Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa). Jason Momoa showed behind the scenes and making-off of the production and what we saw was really exciting for fans who were already waiting for this sequel.

There was no further disclosure of the plot, it was only possible to see the new look of the characters.

The film hits theaters in December 2022.

6. Shazam! Fury of the Gods

Shazam!’s second film will follow the events of the first film, when the whole family of Billy Batson (Asher Angel) achieves powers that turn children into adult heroes.

This time Batson will no longer act alone or in secret, as he will have help from his adoptive brothers in the fight against crime. They will face a pair of villains, Hespera, goddess played by Helen Mirren, and Kalypso, played by Lucy Liu.

The film will be released in June 2023.
