It’s easy to get distracted by the ever-expanding Marvel Studios slate, but Warner Bros. is here to remind us all that DC is bringing out the big guns in 2022 — and this look at the studio’s slate for the year is actually… pretty super.
After a year of hybrid releases due to the pandemic, with films opening in theaters and on HBO Max, this 2022 superhero movie trailer makes it clear the only place to find DC’s biggest movies in the immediate future is in one place: movie theaters. The teaser focuses in on the big screen projects that will anchor the studio’s slate: The Batman, Black Adam, The Flash and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
Check out the 2022 DC teaser below:
We also get some fresh footage from the major releases, including looks at Pierce Brosnan’s Doctor Fate and Aldis Hodge’s Hawkman in Black Adam; some shots of The Flash’s new-look suit and talk of the Flashpoint-y multiverse meddling we can expect from that long-awaited solo flick; Jason Momoa’s Aquaman feeling the weight of the throne in Lost Kingdom; and of course some Batman-y shots that play up the blockbuster superhero movie vibes fans might expect from DC’s most bankable hero (though we all know it’s more of a dark, detective noir kinda vibe once you get in there).
More than anything, the trailer is a tone-setter, reminding fans that DC has some massive superhero movies in the works this year — and that’s not even touching the HBO Max DC superhero projects like Batgirl that are on the way (which could also release late this year on the streamer). Of note, DC’s Blue Beetle flick is also in development for a theatrical bow, though it’s not likely to hit until the summer of 2023.
As for the 2022 slate: The Batman opens on March 4, Black Adam opens July 29, The Flash opens on November 4, and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom opens December 16. And if you need one more reminder — they’re all set to open exclusively in theaters.
