The DC Comics adaptations to follow 'Batman v Superman'

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" kicks off a string of DC Comics adaptations from Warner Bros. slated to swarm theaters in the next five years and give Marvel a run for its money. Here's a rundown of the planned releases:

— SUICIDE SQUAD (Aug. 5): Antiheroes rule the all-villain lineup in David Ayer's film. Its stars include Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.

— WONDER WOMAN (June 23, 2017): Gal Gadot stars in the first movie to give Wonder Woman the spotlight. Patty Jenkins ("Monster") directs the rare female-helmed superhero movie.

— JUSTICE LEAGUE PART ONE (Nov. 17, 2017): Zack Snyder returns to direct the DC Comics answer to "The Avengers" in a team-up film that will bring together Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and others.

— THE FLASH (March 16, 2018): Ezra Miller (who has a cameo in "Batman v Superman") stars as the speediest of superheroes in the stand-alone film directed by Seth Grahame-Smith.

— AQUAMAN (July 27, 2018): Jason Momoa stars as the trident-wielding underwater hero, with James Wan ("The Conjuring") directing.

— SHAZAM (April 5, 2019): Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is on board not to star as the title character, but as the villain Black Adam.

— JUSTICE LEAUGE PART TWO (June 14, 2019): More superheroes, united again.

— CYBORG (April 3, 2020): The relatively unknown actor Ray Fisher, who doesn't have a feature yet under his belt, has been tapped to star as this robotic Justice League hero, a member of the Teen Titans.

— GREEN LATERN CORPS (June 19, 2020): After the failure of 2011's "Green Lantern," starring Ryan Reynolds, this new attempt will rope in several Green Lanterns, an intergalactic police force.
