It’s good to see WB jumping back into 2D action animated series this year, and for streaming nonetheless. It’s where everything is finally going.
Suicide Squad will be the first DC film to follow Batman v Superman, with a plan for release in 2016. Then things get really big. In 2017 we’ll see Wonder Woman and Justice League, with 2018 bringing The Flash and Aquaman. In 2019 WB plans Shazam and Justice League 2.
There are also plans for Cyborg, a Green Lantern reboot, and more standalone Superman and Batman movies.
