After the success of 2015’s Batman: Arkham Knight fans have been speculating whether or not the dark knight would return for another installment.
Rumors have recently surfaced on the development of a new addition to the series called Batman: Arkham Crisis by Rocksteady Studios. Editor for Kotaku Jason Schreier responded to a fan over Twitter about his earlier comments regarding the unknown status of the game. You can read his comments by looking at the section below.
That leak about it being made in two years and “1.7 times the size of GTA V” was nonsense. I don’t know what the name of WB’s next game is.

According to an unknown game tester, the new Batman game has been in development at Rocksteady for two years and will have a 12 act structure, lasting about an hour apiece. Also, as if the game wasn’t big enough already, it’s also said to be larger than Grand Theft Auto V.
A Batman game almost two times the size of Grand Theft Auto V would be absolutely fantastic if it were true. As for the timeline, it’s rumored that Rocksteady is aiming for an October 2019 release.

The next Batman-related film to hit theaters will be The Joker, which is slated for release on October 4, 2019. But before that Warner Bros. has Shazam! set to hit theaters on April 5, 2019, followed by Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020.
Joker is one of the many projects in the works at Warner Bros. and DC Films, including The Batman, The Flash standalone film, Green Lantern Corps, Black Adam, Supergirl, New Gods, Nightwing, a Deathstroke film, Justice League Dark, Batgirl, and Birds of Prey which is currently filming in Los Angeles, California.
Aquaman is now playing. Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, and Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director, James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.

Suicide Squad Characters That Can Appear In The James Gunn Sequel
James Gunn is directing The Suicide Squad for Warner Bros. but that comes at a cost.
When the first Suicide Squad was about to hit theaters DC fans were completely ecstatic. The trailers looked great and the feel of the movie was much different than the darkness that preceded it in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This movie was expected to be one of DC’s biggest hits and it turned out to be one of the biggest let-downs of all time.
Suicide Squad was bad and its reviews reflected that. It was one of the only movies I’ve ever been upset at and it made me want to leave the theater. A sequel was announced because the film did well at the box office, going through a number of drafts until James Gunn was brought on to write it. With James Gunn now officially set to direct The Suicide Squad, it looks like the film will be a bit of a soft reboot.
Last night was a bit of a DC maelstrom of news. We got the release dates and official titles of Matt Reeves’ The Batman and James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. Both movies will be hitting theaters in Summer 2021. Throughout all of the chaos a small tidbit surfaced about The Suicide Squad: the James Gunn-directed film will be some sort of relaunch with new characters and actors. Here are the characters I think James Gunn should introduce in his Suicide Squad movie. Hit Next to view all of my choices.
