2 Awesome DCEU Movies To Watch In 2019
Well, guys, it’s that time of the year. 2018 is leaving us and we have to ponder about the great movies we’ll watch in 2019. I’ll make sure to have the January list of great movies shortly, but for now, let’s focus on one specific type of movies that we can expect in 2019.
The movies from the DC Extended Universe. We’ve already welcomed Aquaman, as the 6th installment from the DCEU, but let’s look at the future. More specifically 2019. Who are the 2 DCEU movies that are set to premiere in 2019 and what’s noteworthy to know about them? Yes, there are 2 of them, and they’re both solo character/origin film stories.
Shazam! is headed to the movie theaters in April, and I can hardly wait for this one for several reasons. One, because I loved the Comic Con trailer (it was a joy to watch actually) and two… because I adore not just Zachary Levi’s, but also Mark Strong’s talents.
The Shazam! trailer gave a hint that the movie will be much lighter in tone and hopefully the DCEU won’t take itself too seriously. I have high hopes for Shazam! and i hope the movie will leave a positive note with the critics and audience.
Shazam! opens on April 5th 2019.
The second movie from the DCEU that I’m really hyped up about is of course Joker!
Directed and co-written by Todd Phillips, Joker is you’ve guessed it… the story about Arthur Fleck/Joker’s mayhem origins in Gotham City. With Joaquin Phoenix in the titular role, and with Zazie Beetz, Robert De Niro, Frances Conroy, Marc Maron and Bill Camp in the rest of the cast. Joker is one to look out for in my book.
Joker is also the second comic book movie of Zazie Beetz, after her role in Deadpool 2, and she’ll have the unlikely advantage of starring in both Marvel and DC movies.
Joker opens on October 4th 2019.
