Warner Bros. opened the DC portion of its Comedian-Con panel immediately with a hefty burst of visible data for followers, displaying off the logos for what appeared to be each single certainly one of its upcoming comedian ebook variations. A few of these have been outdated information—we’ve been fielding experiences on, say, Suicide Squad II for some time now—however the studio additionally snuck in some new (or at the very least solely earlier speculated) data into the combination.
As an example, we received affirmation that Inexperienced Lantern Corps and Batgirl are nonetheless within the works, whereas the studio additionally took the less-than-controversial stance of confirming that it’s engaged on Surprise Lady II. (Nonetheless no definitive phrase on Patty Jenkins returning to the franchise to direct, although.) Probably the most fascinating tidbit, although, was associated to DC’s plans for the Flash, with the brand revealing that the upcoming movie adaptation of Ezra Miller’s scarlet speedster could be a model of the Flashpoint storyline from the comics.
These books, printed in 2011, concerned a line-wide crossover all primarily based round Barry Allen screwing round with time. On condition that we have already got affirmation of one thing comparable occurring within the DC motion pictures—courtesy of Bruce Wayne’s bizarre apocalypse goals in Batman V. Superman—it’s not laborious to think about that the Warner Bros. film (which nonetheless doesn’t have a director connected) will dip into that plotline when the Flash’s time involves shine.
It wasn’t all simply logos (or Justice League trailers), although; the studio additionally confirmed off footage from the presently filming Aquaman, with star Jason Momoa flying in from Australia only for the panel. Trident in hand, Momoa launched director James Wan, who confirmed con-goers a minute or two of footage. The video reportedly opened with a few outdated fisherman, whose quiet time out goes disastrously mistaken once they by accident hook the vanguard of an invading Atlantean fleet, led by Aquaman’s brother, the Ocean Grasp. The digicam then cuts to Momoa, who trash-talks his newest, off-screen opponent. “You don’t wish to possibly speak this over?” he asks, earlier than smling. “Yeah, me neither.” Cue massive struggle scene, however most likely not for some time; Aquaman doesn’t arrive in theaters till December 21, 2018.
