Take this with a big grain of salt for the moment... But it sounds pretty cool nevertheless and the report comes from Deadline founder Nikki Finke, who launched her own website and revealed some pretty EPIC news for fans for DC Comics and Warner Bros. superhero films in particular.
A report has surface that WB and DC are geared to reveal at this year's San Diego Comic-Con their plans for their DC Cinematic Universe schedule through 2018, which lines up not just the already confirmed "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" film already in production and slated for May 2016 and announced Justice League film, but also a Shazam, Wonder Woman, Sandman, a Green Lantern/ Flash film, and even a direct Man of Steel sequel in "Man of Steel 2"! In fact, the JL movie gets a release of May 2017, while MoS 2 is on May 2018! Finke also says that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will feature cameos by not just Wonder Woman and Cyborg, but a new Green Lantern and The Flash! Also, Aquaman is reported to appear in Justice League, completing the line-up seen and generated by The New 52 Justice League reboot launch title.
Again, these are rumors, and until SDCC 2014 these should be anything but official. More details can be seen at the source post at Superherohype and Nikki Finke's new website.
