TV & FILM

Yesterday, Warner Brothers made one of the most ambitious announcements in movie history, unveiling a slate of 10 new superhero movies for their DC Universe, plus another two "bonus" films that I guess they left out because 12 isn't a nice round number like 10.
Of course, the fact that WB wants to build such franchise is hardly news. We've suspected this was in the works since they confirmed Batman would be in the Man of Steel sequel, and we knew it was in the works when they announced Gal Gadot would be Wonder Woman. What makes this announcement notable is the detail.
When Marvel announced their plans for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they only gave us specifics on a handful of projects and left the rest—like Guardians and Ant-Man—for a later date. Warner Brothers, however, is going all in by telling us all the movies they're going to make and when they're going to make them.
Take a look at the complete schedule:
The "bonus" movies I mentioned? Those are another standalone Superman movie and a standalone Batfleck movie. They just don't have dates yet.
Will all this play out exactly as planned? Highly doubtful. But I for one appreciate the grandiosity.
