This is the list of the upcoming DC superhero movies and their release dates


Illustration Illustration - DC had been losing against Marvel, what with the latter’s project of Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) starting with The Avengers. Now, DC seems to focus more on standalone stories instead of a connected universe, and it brings them success. Aquaman and Wonder Woman are proofs of it. DC has 7 upcoming superhero films that have official release dates.

1.       Shazam! (April 5th 2019)

Directed by David Sandberg, the film tells the story of a boy named Billy Batson (Asher Angel) who is able to turn into an adult superhero (Zachary Levi) by shouting the word “Shazam”.
