UPDATE! Warner Bros CEO Kevin Tsujihara also announced that there will be new solo Batman and Superman films - most likely with Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, respectively - in addition to the films announced below. On the the original report...

Warner Bros. announced this morning several DC on film projects along with their respective release dates (via THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER by way of FORBES.COM). Here's the line-up...

* BATMAN v SUPERMAN and SUICIDE SQUAD in 2016

* WONDER WOMAN and JUSTICE LEAGUE in 2017

* THE FLASH and AQUAMAN in 2018

* SHAZAM and JUSTICE LEAGUE 2 in 2019

* CYBORG and GREEN LANTERN in 2020

This tells us that both The Flash and Green Lantern will likely be included in one - perhaps both - of the JUSTICE LEAGUE films. I thought there was a chance that both The Flash and Green Lantern would be excluded from the DCU on film. With 2011's GREEN LANTERN bombing and THE FLASH TV series on The CW, it looked as if those two characters would be excluded. Hey, I was wrong. Nonetheless, I'm happy for DCU fans. Now on to what matters most, Batman on film...

This means that we will see Ben Affleck's Batman in at least four films: BATMAN v SUPERMAN, JUSTICE LEAGUE, JL2 and a solo film. Despite the fact I'm not too hip on Batman in team-up films, I really can't complain as a Batman fan.
