New DC Domain Names Suggest Future Slate

Spotting newly registered internet domain names has been a useful sport for a while, giving strong indicators of what studios are up to before official announcements are made. That method was how we learned Skyfall was called **Skyfall, for example, and it may just have revealed DC / Warners' immediate future in comicbook movies.

Four domains have just arrived online, all of which currently forward to the main Warner Bros.' website:,, and, perhaps most interestingly,

There arent many surprises there, admittedly, but the list does reveal information that DC chose not to trumpet at Comic-Con this year, preferring to concentrate on Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and the reveal of Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman costume.

Not long before Comic-Con, ex-Deadliner Nikki Finke published a list of the DC movie slate for the next few years that has remained in the rumour file and still not been officially confirmed. But the new domain names do back up parts of that list. Finke's was the first mention we'd heard of a Shazam! film for some years. Today's intel strongly suggests that she was on the money (as did Dwayne Johnson's reveal last month that he's been in talks for Shazam!, either to play the title character or bad guy Black Adam). She didn't mention a standalone Aquaman at all, but Jason Momoa is playing him in Batman V Superman and there was already chatter about a film for him.

Dawn Of Justice, we know, will be with us on March 25, 2016. DC/Warner have also publicised a further 9 release slots, but not the films that will be inhabiting them. We can currently expect Justice League-releated movies on August 8, 2016; June 23, 2017; November 17, 2017; March 23, 2018; July 27, 2018; April 5, 2019; June 14, 2019; April 3, 2020; and June 19, 2020. Have the first four of those names just been pencilled in? And in which order do they go?

We will, of course, bring you the official announcements as soon as they happen...
