Aquaman and Wonder Woman are the only ones standing out of the original plans. Batman's got a reboot coming and the others are gonna be shelved for god knows how long.
The Flash is also apparently being made.
Still? Which director are they on now?
Think a movie of the making of that movie will end up more interesting than the actual movie?

I personally can't wait for the next thrilling Aquaman centered crossover.
I am actually surprised Warner isn't going for the kill with the success of Aquaman and Shazam like what they did with Wonder Woman.
In the case of Aquaman, it's main star's activism has caused the movie to be put on hold for a bit.
What has Jason Momoa been doing that's controversial?
Nothing. He's helping in the protection of native land. As I said, that is why the sequel is on hold for a while.

Oh, I misunderstood what you said. I thought you meant the movie is on hold because his activism is controversial and the studio wants to avoid a scandal; but you actually meant the movie is on hold because he is busy with his activism and has no time to film.

Any theoretical sequel is probably only in the early stages anyway.
Ah hope he fights the good fight.
Necro. Let's just say Amber Heard might lose her job as Mera for the Sequel....

For those not in the loop, recently audio was obtained from a therapy session between Heard and her then-husband Johnny Depp where she admits to several instances in the past where she physically abused him, including tossing pots and pans at him. This is after she alleged that he physically abused her during their marriage about a year ago.
It's a very ugly situation, to say the least.

Doesn't surprise me, all reasonable evidence at the time indicated it was a mutually abusive relationship all around. It's not at all a justification for what Depp did, unless every instance of him striking her was purely in self-defense (which I find extremely improbable). But, I sure as hell didn't buy into the claims from Heard apologists that she was an innocent battered wife either.

Yeah, they... weren't good for each other. Holy shit were they not good for each other.
These things tend to escalate until no one really knows who started it. There was footage early on in this situation where Depp was drunk and ranting, only to get really upset when he realized she was recording him. It doesn't look good on him, but I don't think anyone would appreciate being recorded in that circumstance.
I doubt that they will fire Heard, though. Hell, Warner Bros didn't fire Depp from Crimes of Grindelwald either.
Nothing to do with that, but is The Trench supposed to come out before or after Aquaman 2 ?
Aquaman 2 is set for a 2022 release date, while The Trench is still in-development. So at this rate, The Trench will come after 2.
The thing is, Herad was one of the more public voices of the Metoo movement.The hypocrisy of the situation is only adding fuel to the fire.
This may provide additional insentive for WB to give her the boot.

I doubt so. Warner Bros would rather have it be swept away under private matters rather than potentially losing two big-profile actors in their franchises. They didn't get rid of Depp despite massive fan protests, and it would be double-standard to get rid of Amber Heard but not Depp (considering that this is apparently a mutual destructive relationship, not merely Depp is the innocent victim).
As such, it would be more beneficial for them to keep both with the scandal settled quietly in the courts. It also helps that both of them are in supporting roles rather than the lead roles (which would really be a massive scandal).
It depends on how much further momentum this issue gets. They wouldn't drop Heard unless she starts facing criminal charges or is viewed as toxic to the movie production itself.
