Every Other DC Movie "In Development"
In addition to all the movies on Warner Bros.' official DCEU slate, there are at least a dozen other projects in various stages of development, some of which are connected to the DCEU and some that aren't. The LEGO Batman Movie director Chris McKay is directing Nightwing based on a story and script from Bill Dubuque (Ozark). However, that film may not release for several more years since McKay was recently hired to direct Dungeons & Dragons for Paramount Pictures (which is due out in theaters in 2021). There's also a Supergirl movie in development, from 22 Jump Street writer Oren Uziel.
Instead of returning to helm Suicide Squad 2, David Ayer might be adapting Gotham City Sirens from a script by Geneva Dworet-Robertson (Tomb Raider, Captain Marvel). That's just one of several projects that Margot Robbie has in development for Harley Quinn. Robbie will also potentially reprise her role in Glenn Ficarra & John Requa's (Crazy, Stupid, Love) Harley Quinn & The Joker and an Untitled Harley Quinn movie - but there's no guarantee that either project will be given the green light. There's also a long-dormant Cyborg movie starring Ray Fisher that is supposedly still happening.
Meanwhile, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson will be making his debut as Teth-Adam in Black Adam, based on a script from his longtime collaborator Adam Sztykiel (Rampage). As for Lobo, Wonder Woman scribe Jason Fuchs is rewriting the screenplay, with Warner Bros. eyeing Michael Bay (Transformers) to direct. Finally, Warner Bros. is reportedly developing Justice League 2 and Man of Steel 2, though those two have basically been put on ice for now. Moreover, the studio also commissioned a New Gods movie from Ava DuVernay (Selma, A Wrinkle in Time), though the film may not be part of the DCEU. Plus, there's the Booster Gold movie from Arrowverse co-creator Greg Berlanti that has been in development for several years, and a Blackhawk movie that will be produced and possibly directed by Steven Spielberg.
Given Aquaman's success and extensive world-building, an Aquaman spinoff called The Trench (about the Trench) is currently being developed by WB, which would cost considerably less than a tentpole movie and delve more into horror. If it happens, Wan has promised that it won't affect other mainline DC films in development. This is evident by Aquaman 2 already being dated by WB.
Every DC Animated Movie
Along with Warner Bros.' live-action DC films, Warner Bros. Animation also has quite a few DC-based projects in development. The first to release is Justice League vs. The Fatal Five, arriving in spring 2019, followed by Batman: Hush in summer 2019, which will offer a "gauntlet of Batman villains including Poison Ivy, Ra's al Ghul, the Joker, and, of course, the bandage-faced mystery villain Hush." The final animated movie being planned for 2019 is Wonder Woman: Bloodlines, though we don't yet have a more specific release window. Furthermore, WB Animation also reportedly has animated movies for Superman: Red Son and Batman Beyond in development. However, it's unclear when those movies would release.
