  1. WB is pursuing a ‘Harley Quinn’ trilogy that consists of ‘Birds of Prey’, ‘Gotham City Sirens’, and ‘Birds of Prey v Gotham City Sirens’ with Harley being the bridge connecting these two teams. (Rumor was reported form an unknown source but then backed by DanielRPK)

  2. Christopher McQuarrie is on the short list for directing Green Lantern Corps. Hal Jordan will be the senior Green Lantern with John Stewart as a young Marine recruit.

  3. The Penguin is one of two villains for Matt Reeves’ Batman. (Hush rumored to be 2nd villain form an unknown source.)

  4. Jason Black/Jason Segal are up for Penguin in Batman. (Patreon)

  5. Lady Gaga/Olivia Wild up for Black Canary in Birds of Prey. (Patreon) DEBUNKED

  6. Zac Efron is up for Green Lantern. (Patreon)

  7. Supergirl movie, Brainiac as the main villian. The film will be a period piece, taking place over a few decades, half of the film taking place in space, the other half on Earth, before the arrival of Superman. (Patreon)

  1. Justice League Snyder Cut announcement at Comic-Con 2019.

  2. Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill have signed on to do 4 more films.

  3. Tessa Boham Jones is indeed Supergirl (the rumor Larry started on Reddit for context) in The Snyder Cut.

  4. The Shazam trailer was delayed to prevent Superman being revealed in the movie. WB higher ups did not want to reveal that Superman was in the movie to keep it a surprise.

  5. Ben Affleck’s next appearance as Batman will be book-ending Matt Reeves’ movie, similar to Wonder Woman, telling the story of his younger days.

  6. The actors being considered for Matt Reeves’ Batman movie are all in their 20’s.

  7. Matt Reeves’ will do a trilogy of Batman films. The first two are set in the past with a younger Batman and the 3rd will be played by Ben Affleck set just before BvS or present day.

Unknown/Irrelevant Source

  1. Matt Reeves’ Batman movie has changed titles from “The Batman” to a yet to be determined title. (Most likely true rumor)

  2. Suicide Squad will be a totally different film with no ties to the first except for Waller. Expect all new team with maybe only returning Will Smith.

  3. Harley will have an arc of three movies. Suicide Squad, Birds of Prey and Gotham City Sirens. Joker and Harley movie has been cancelled.

  4. Ben Affleck is still playing younger Batman. They will de-age him using the same technology used for Samuel L. Jackson in Captain Marvel.

  5. Christopher Nolan’s next movie is a DC film. The 2020 announcement and the untitled DC Film for 2020 are no coincidence.

  6. Green Lantern casting announcement at Comic Con.

  7. Black Widow will start filming in late February and be rated R.

  8. Granny Goodness and the Female Furies will be the villains in DC’s upcoming ‘New Gods’ movie. Mr. Miracle and Big Barda are the main protagonists. According to “multiple sources that inform GWW.” However, they offer the disclaimer that “The movie is still being written” and that “it could change before pre-production begins.”
