Warner Bros has released a new promo video for DC’s 2022 slate with new footage of The Batman, The Flash, Black Adam, and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. DC only released The Suicide Squad by James Gunn and justice League by Zack Snyder in 2021. However, Warner Bros. is stepping up its superhero movie production in 2022 by releasing a string of films in the next few months.
Rather than focusing their attention just on the DCEU, Warner Bros. is seeking to develop their own multiverse. This suggests that, in addition to one continuity, there are multiple realities in the development. Matt Reeves’ The Batman exists in a separate reality from the rest of the upcoming live-action movies from DC Films. Despite this, Warner Bros. intends to promote them all together as part of its 2022 slate because they all include characters from the comic book franchise.
Accordingly, DC Films has released a brand new promotional video highlighting their schedule of live-action films for the year. The new footage features new looks of Batman, The Flash, Black Adam, and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom can seen in the trailer. Warner Bros. declares that “2022 is the year for heroes” based on their planned projects. You can watch that video below.
Aside from the aforementioned films, Warner Bros. will also release the DC League of Super-Pets, an animated film. The story is based around Superman’s dog, Krypto (voiced by Dwayne Johnson), assembling his own squad to rescue the Justice League, who had been captured. When compared to its nearest opponent, Marvel Studios, it has a more diverse offering overall. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever are the only three MCU movies set for release in 2022. Given this, DC Films, which has a reputation for failing, may make advances this year and establish themselves as the powerhouse that they should be in the comic book movie sandbox.
Of course, the quality of these films will play a key role. DC Films has produced some great stories in recent years, but they have been unable to properly execute them. As a result, fans were even more dissatisfied because the ability was there. Hopefully, The Batman, The Flash, Black Adam, and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will live up to their respective promises this year. In any case, it didn’t seem like these four DCEU projects had significant production issues like their predecessors. So, Warner Bros. may have finally learned their lesson about over-interfering with their blockbusters.
