Warner Bros. officially announced Tuesday evening that it was moving a DC Comics film from June 19, 2020 to July 24, 2020, but the question is, what DC film did they move?

Since 2014 it has been assumed that the June 19 date was being reserved for Green Lantern, later retitled Green Lantern Corps, but the studio’s Tuesday announcement refers to the film only as an “Untitled DC film.”

June 19, 2020, along with April 3, 2020 and seven other dates from 2016 through 2020 were first reserved for untitled DC films in August 2014. Then in October of that same year in a massive announcement during a Warner Bros. shareholder meeting, along with DC’s other Justice League-centric films, Cyborg and Green Lantern were identified as the 2020 films, in that order, but without specifying the dates. Hollywood and comic book news publications extrapolated that since to mean April 3 was reserved for Cyborg and June 19 for Green Lantern.

Finally during July 2015’s San Diego Comic-Con, the studio announced Green Lantern would be retitled Green Lantern Corps.

Warner Bros. declined to confirm Tuesday evening if the now-July 24, 2020 date was being reserved for Green Lantern Corps. As of the moment the move places the film just two weeks after an untitled Marvel Studios film (July 10).

As always, the full comic book superhero release schedule is always updated right here.

The studio also announced that they’ve scheduled an “Untitled WB Event Film” for Christmas Day 2018, that Gareth Edward’s Godzilla 2 is moving from June 8, 2018 to March 22, 2018, and that the literal monster-mash Godzilla vs Kong will be released on May 29, 2020.
