Speculations and expressions of high hopes often act as the sources of rumors regarding soon-to-be movies. However, that information is frequently incorrect or subject to change. For example, you can find many articles with information about the next solo Batman movie, but nothing it seems, is set in stone. Here, we will look at some of the facts and rumors about comic books to be made into future movies.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Warner Brothers plans to spin off these superheroes into solo films, and Mark Hughes of Forbes.com speculates that after Justice League, Batman will move “to his own series that will exist in a universe with the other superheroes.” That’s an interesting shift in Batman’s movie presence.

Most of the above listed in-development films are good bets to make it the theaters, since they’re backed by major studious. However, many movies never make it past the early stages. One that comes to mind was a Superman movie in which Nicholas Cage was slotted to play the Man of Steel. Yet, while he may not seem like the Superman-type, he has played other superheroes in recent films.
