Looks like the DC Comics Cinematic Universe may come to fruition with not only summer 2016's Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, but Warner Bros. is also planning to have seven pictures released sometime between 2016 and 2018 featuring Wonder Woman, the Flash, Green Lantern, and other superheroes.

According to Access Hollywood, Shazam! is reportedly set for release on July 2016, two months after Dawn of Justice with Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, who may finally get her own movie in July 2017, two months after forming the Justice League, Earth's mightiest champions for truth, justice, peace, harmony, and equality against the forces of evil.

However, before there will be a Justice League, the Sandman is set to enter our dreams in December 2016 with Joseph Gordon-Levitt of The Dark Knight Rises in the title role.

Good and bad news for Green Lantern fans: he may team up with the Flash in December 2017, but Ryan Reynolds won't be reprising the role -- despite being the 'go-to-guy' in the comic-book/superhero film genre thanks to roles as vampire hunter Hannibal King in Blade: Trinity opposite Wesley Snipes' half-human, half-vampire Daywalker, and wisecracking mercenary Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine opposite Hugh Jackman.

And if you're expecting Matt Damon to join the League with best friend Ben, then you're in for a big splash, as Jason Momoa is set to play the role of Aquaman in Batman vs. Superman, WeGotThisCovered.com reported.

And speaking of Dawn of Justice, turns out it's not the follow-up to Man of Steel, as the actual sequel is being planned for a May 2018 release.
