DC Cinematic Universe to bring 10 films between now and 2020

According to Cinema Blend on Wednesday, there appears to be an itinerary of upcoming comic book movies by DC Comics available between now and the year 2020. With the rumors going around about seven titles in some kind of thought process, including a "Justice League", "Green Lantern", "Wonder Woman", and "Flash" movies, it's difficult to iterate how much of these titles are of accurate nomenclature among those to be released in said set of scheduled movie release dates.

As of now, there are currently 10 release dates set for the untitled films entailing the DC Cinematic Universe. This includes from now until the Summer of 2020. The descending order of said events is as follows:

Untitled DC Film – August 5, 2016
Untitled DC Film – June 23, 2017
Untitled DC Film – November 17, 2017
Untitled DC Film – March 23, 2018
Untitled DC Film – July 27- 2018
Untitled WB Event Film – November 16, 2018
Untitled DC Film – April 5, 2019
Untitled DC Film – June 14, 2019
Untitled DC Film – April 3, 2020
Untitled DC Film – June 19, 2020
Untitled WB Event Film – November 20, 2020

This will start off with Zack Snyder's "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" which has recently been moved back away from the "Captain America 3" film for a new release date of March 25, 2016. It is noted as a pre-San Diego Comic Con process, that Marvel Studios made the decision to announce six projects between now and 2019. This would then bring Marvel's schedule of films to a tally of seven. It has been at one time eight, but it was then revealed that "Guardians of the Galaxy 2" would be released come July 27, 2017.

Also, starting in 2017, Marvel Studios plans on releasing three movies per year as with DC Comics, they intend on starting a bit later with said strategy. Having said dates now currently, it would stand to reason that some of these scheduled events would be reserved for the Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and even the whole Justice League set of characters. It certainly does remain that other characters like Shazam, Green Latern, and Flash are something to be considered, but time will eventually reveal that.

But first things first and to get the ball rolling, go see Snyder's "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" come March 25, 2016.
