WONDER WOMAN Movie Coming After JUSTICE LEAGUE In July 2017?

NikkiFinke claims to have obtained a list of future DC films and their order of release. They include Shazam and Sandman movies coming out before the release of Justice League. Along with Wonder Woman, Man of Steel 2 and Flash/Green Lantern team-up films post-League. It's interesting that WB is going to attempt to bring back Green Lantern (new actor), but even more interesting the Flash will be involved.

May 2016 – Batman v Superman
July 2016 – Shazam
Xmas 2016 – Sandman
May 2017 – Justice League
July 2017 – Wonder Woman
Xmas 2017 – Flash and Green Lantern team-up (no Ryan Reynolds)
May 2018 – Man Of Steel 2

We know a little bit more concerning the Wonder Woman movie, than a majority of these other projects listed. Scripts from Joss Whedon, and more recently Michael Goldenberg are in the hands of the studio. It's unknown if they plan on using existing material from the two screenwriters or start fresh with a new script.

Gal Gadot is already in the title role and will be first seen as Diana Prince in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It's expected Gal will take an even larger role in Justice League. Developing the character over two films then giving her a solo-outing after the release of Justice League, could give the film a massive boost in awareness internationally. It's hard to say if Wonder Woman will end-up gaining as much box office success as her male counterparts, but she has the greatest chance at.

A director hasn't been named, but it's very possible that Zack Snyder could be called-in to direct Wonder Woman as well, after he completes shooting Justice League. Finishing them back-to-back wouldn't be hard to imagine as Gal Gadot will be taking-on that duty. We've been hearing a lot about about Snyder filming both BVS and Justice League. Having him also direct Wonder Woman wouldn't be much of a stretch. Considering there has been a bit of a comparison to the David Yates era of The Harry Potter franchise.

My biggest issue is that there has been a calling for a female director to handle the production. Mainly, we've been backing television director Michelle MacLaren (Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones) to take the gig. She's perfect for the subject matter and has the experience to make a excellent feature.
