In past ten years of Cinema, comic books’ live-action and animated adaptations have turned into a major cash machine for film studios and production houses. With several Comic Book adaptations hitting screens since 2000, a huge outbreak occurred after 2008 when Marvel Studios started their MCU franchise with ‘Iron Man’. This trend went further with Fox Studios turning their original ‘X-men’ Film Series into a shared universe in multiple timelines. And now DC Films followed them into their footsteps announcing plans for 10 major DC Comics adaptations, together forming DCEU.
These movies always leave audiences and fans with a little surprise and suspense that makes them want more and more. So, here is the list of 15 yet to release comic book movies that you can vouch for. The list consists of mainly upcoming superhero movies.
1. Justice League (DC Entertainment) (2017)
The very first and very near comic book movie to release is DCEU’s ‘Justice League’. The fifth installment of DC Extended Universe, ‘Justice league’ stars an ensemble cast that includes Ben Affleck (Batman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Ray Fisher (Cyborg), Jason Momoa (Aquaman) and Ezra Miller (The Flash) along with Ciarán Hinds (Steppenwolf) and Henry Cavill (Superman). Directed by Zack Snyder (and ‘Avengers’ director Joss Whedon), ‘Justice League’ follows events after ‘BvS: Dawn of Justice’ and will see Batman forming an alliance with fellow superhumans to prevent an alien threat.
The movie has been in development hell for last 15 years and has seen a number of changes in both the script and cast. It was the first time that a final draft for a ‘Justice League’ movie was completed and set into production since George Miller’s canceled “Justice League: Mortal’ (2009). The movie has already garnered worldwide attention through trailers and is expected to set new box office records.
