DCEU back: Here are some must-see movies and shows in 2022!
By Elyse Johnson
Los Angeles, CA – DC movie fans rejoice! Most important movies and shows are on the horizon!
While Marvel is currently exploring alternate timelines and new heroes, its competition could prove to be its real rivalry!
After the success of Zack Snyder’s Aquaman films, Wonder Woman series, and Justice League, it’s clear that the DCEU is stepping up!
Now that The suicide squad Has hit theaters and streaming services, here are a few other DCEU movies to watch that could give the MCU a run for its money!
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is finally turning out to be a superhero – sort of.
The former wrestler will play the famous anti-hero, Black Adam, in the titular film which will be released in 2022.
While we have a bit of time before the film arrives, its relevance is worth noting!
Rust Deputy Director backs Alec Baldwin’s claims about the trigger
For those who don’t know, Black Adam, aka Teth-Adam, is Shazam’s nemesis.
The character was mentioned in the 2019 film when the wizard explained to a young Billy Batson that years ago he chose a champion who unleashed the Seven Deadly Sins on Earth and wiped out an entire civilization.
Black Adam is not the type to be disturbed, which will be interesting to see unfold when he finally takes on Shazam.
There has also been talk that The Rock will reprise his role in several other future films.
The DCEU has already shown that the story of a villain can be as entertaining as that of a hero with the critically acclaimed film, Joker.
Black Adam is due out on July 29, 2022!
Yes, another Batman movie is coming up.
But as its counterparts in the past have proven, every performance is just as diverse.
Enter Robert Pattinson!
The British Idol will now don the Black Cloak as he battles corrupted evil in Cursed Gotham.
The 2022 film follows the second year of fighting crime for DC’s most popular character.
Sadly, the Joker won’t be his opponent this time around, but he’ll face The Riddler.
The Twilight star will be joined by a star cast, including ZoÃ« Kravitz as Selina Kyle aka Catwoman, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon and Paul Dano as psychotic serial killer.
The Penguin will also make an appearance, played by Colin Farrell who has undergone an incredible transformation to enter the character.
The film will be the first in a new Batman trilogy with Pattinson signed on to play the Dark Knight in future films.
The question is, will he be able to convince fans that he can carry on the character’s legacy?
The Batman will be released on March 22, 2022.
Marvel isn’t the only franchise to play with multi-verse.
In the upcoming film based on the DC character, Barry Allen, played by Ezra Miller, will travel back in time to prevent the murder of his mother.
But this leads to catastrophic events because, as has been explained many times before – playing with time is a big no no!
Still, the action flick will bring back not only Ben Affleck’s Batman, but also Michael Keaton, who infamously portrayed the Capped Crusader in 1989.
Because Ezra effortlessly captured the role of the young superhero, there is no doubt that he will deliver him in his first feature film.
Especially since he has a few veterans by his side!
Don’t blink! The Flash will be here before you know it on November 4, 2022.
Another wrestler joining the world of superheroes!
The world’s most complicated anti-hero, Peacemaker, has his own show.
John Cena will reprise his role as the ruthless but endearing serial killer in the HBO Max series.
The show will follow the villain’s origins while picking up where he left off after The Suicide Squad.
Because DC is known for its darker themes and storylines, it’s good to see the franchise explore that further and give its villains some proper backstory.
James Gunn, who has written and directed dozens of Marvel movies, is also the show’s creator, so if there was any doubt that it wouldn’t be a hit, think again!
Sadly, fans have to wait a while for this exciting new series to arrive.
Don’t worry though, The Suicide Squad is still available to stream on the app.
Peacemaker will keep the peace in January 2022!
Marvel attention! DC is on the horizon!
