DC Are Coming Back Strong in 2022

Posted by Holly Clarkson


Over the weekend DC released three new movie trailers in their DC Fandome for their up-coming Batman, Flash and Black Adam movies next year. 

The Batman looks as if it's going to be the darkest Batman we've seen yet with Robert Patterson taking on the defender of Gotham during his early days as Batman. A new Batman evidently means a new cast including Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Colin Farrell as Penguin, Paul Dano as Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commisioner Gordon and Andy Serkis as Alfred. I was sceptical when Ben Affleck took on the role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice but he brought a great Bruce Wayne to take on Superman and lead the Justice League. He was due to carry on in this movie as well as co-write the story, however, he decided to leave and Director Matt Reeves took over and based the storyline around a younger Batman. It was due to be released last year but due to the covid pandemic it was pushed back to March 4th 2022.

Next year DC will introduce villain Black Adam, a DC antihero spin-off from Shazam! who's powers come from the same magic as Shazam! Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson who has been said to take on the character since 2014 but Not much is known about the storyline, however, we know that this movie will introduce Hawkman and Doctor Fate into the DCEU. Due out July 29th 2022.

The last DC movie due next year is The Flash movie which will bring back Ezra Miller as Flash in DC up-coming movie which will send Barry Allen through time to try and change the past when his Mother was killed. Not too much is known about the story but this latest teaser trailer definitely confirms that it is influenced by the Flash Point storyline. Ben Affleck is said to return as well as 80's Batman legend Michael Keaton in probably the most exciting retelling of a Flash storyline in comics. Due out November 4th 2022 this is undoubtedly a must see next year!
