The Movies DC May Be Considering For A 2017 Shoot After Aquaman
Acknowledging how the Batman movie will now likely shoot in 2018, Variety reporter Justin Kroll tweeted out that the following five movies are being considered for a 2017 shoot.
Of the five movies being reported, I'd say that Gotham City Sirens stands the strongest chance of starting production in 2017. Christina Hodson has been working on the screenplay, David Ayer is handling directing duties following his work on Suicide Squad and Margot Robbie will reprise Harley Quinn. It has enough pieces in place that it's plausible shooting could begin in the summer or fall. Then there's Suicide Squad 2, which has reportedly found a new screenwriter and searching for a new director. Since the first Squad adventure came out last year, Warner Bros may want to release a sequel sooner rather than later.
So which movie is least likely to start production in 2017? That would probably be The Flash. For a long time that movie was expected to come out on March 23, 2018, but with Rick Famuyiwa departing as director last October (a job that Seth Grahame-Smith left as well), the movie was put on hold and there's been no word on how the Scarlet Speedster's solo adventure is progressing other than that King Arthur: Legend of the Sword writer Joby Harold is re-writing the script. It's arguably the least ready to get a shoot going in just a couple months. As for the others, Green Lantern Corps has David Goyer and Justin Rhodes writing the script, while Dark Universe has Doug Liman attached to direct.
