Untitled DC Comics Movies To Be Announced Later This Month

Several days ago DC Comics revealed that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will jump off the May 6th, 2016 date that was first held by Captain America 3 and Marvel. Well Entertainment Weekly caught up with Dan Fellman the President of Domestic Distribution at Warner Brothers to talk about the move and this DC Cinematic Universe that's starting to take shape:
“In terms of going back and reviewing the situation, it looked to us—and maybe our reconnaissance wasn’t great—that they were not going to have a movie [ready] on that date. Just that they held onto it and they might not be able to deliver. But they took another position. The reality now is there really isn’t a bad week to open a movie. If you look at the summer box office this year, you can see that there were so many movies, one after the other. You can start with Spider-Man, two weeks later Godzilla, and then Maleficent, and then Edge of Tomorrow, and then Jump Street and Transformers. And the one thing they all had in common, not one of them did over $250 million. We’ll be the first one up [in 2016], which is very important, and we’ll have six weeks before Captain America comes in.”
He then goes onto tease the 9 Untitled DC Movies that have yet to be titled that some may be announced later this month “some of those untitled DC movies should begin to be announced later this month,” He lastly teases that even though Justice League hasn't been announced for 2017 through a press release (Even though it was announced through the trades) it's a pretty good bet that it will make that 2017 release date being shot back-to-back with Batman v Superman “While it hasn’t been officially announced, I think it’s a pretty good bet.”

With Batman v Superman coming out March 2016 there is still an August 2016 release date that still needs to be filled. This leads many to assume Dwayne Johnson's long rumored role in a Shazam film (Either as Shazam or Black Adam) will take that 2016 spot.
