Wonder Woman Solo Movie 'Scheduled By Warner Brothers'

Leaked slate for movie releases also appears to reveal Justic League movie coming in 2017...

Warner Brothers bosses have previously insisted that they don't have plans for a standalone Wonder Woman movie, but a newly leaked release schedule seems to suggest that may have changed.

The details have been published on NikkiFinke.com, a new website set up by the founder of Deadline - considered a reliable source in the industry.

As well as the solo WW outing in July 2017, the release slate apparently includes a Justice League movie two months beforehand and a Flash and Green Lantern team-up at the end of 2017.

The line-up is...

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
May 2018 – Man Of Steel 2

And Finke's source said that Batman v Superman was delayed in order to allow Warner Brothers to line-up more future projects, the characters for which will be introduced in the blockbuster.

"Like Marvel's The Avengers, there will be cameos of superheroes for future instalments," the mole explained.

"The cameos will include the already known Cyborg and Flash. Green Lantern may be introduced. And Aquaman will be seen in the Justice League movie.

"Problem is, Warner Bros Pictures was still negotiating with the actors for those cameos and future roles, meaning major contracts for multiple JL/character films to follow.

"The studio didn't want to move forward until they had more of this secure so they held off starting production for a few months. Seemingly simple reason, but the implications are pretty darn huge."
