Warner Bros announces more than a dozen films that it plans to work on from now till 2020.
Warner Bros looks like it will have its hands full over the next several years announcing a new slate of tentpole films through 2020.
During a shareholders meeting earlier this week, chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara unveiled the studio's slate of tentpole features through 2020.
This includes at least three Harry Potter spinoff films based on Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, three Lego Movie follow-ups and two Justice League films directed by Zack Snyder, as well as a slew of related superhero movies.
Also in the announcement are separate Batman and Superman films, which are still undated.
The previously announced Harry Potter films, written by author J.K. Rowling, will begin in 2016 with a finale planned for 2020.
Set in New York roughly seven decades before Harry Potter's saga starts, Fantastic Beasts is based on the Hogwarts textbook of the same name and follows the adventures of its author, Newt Scamander.
Most of DC Comics' Justice League movies had also been confirmed or rumoured. The biggest reveals include: Ezra Miller will play The Flash, Zack Snyder will return to direct a second Justice League movie (2020) and the Wonder Woman film, starring Gal Gadot, is slated for 2017.
Meanwhile, Aquaman and The Flash will both arrive in 2018. And finally, the three Lego pictures will arrive in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
