DC has a stacked movie slate in 2022, which is filled with fresh takes on characters and sequels that would reinvent its current heroes. 2021 featured James Gunn's The Suicide Squad as the lone entry in Warner Bros. and DC's big-screen lineup, but they are poised to dial it up a notch this year by releasing The Batman, Black Adam, The Flash, and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. This is on top of an animated feature featuring Dwayne Johnson's Krypto the Superdog in League of Super Pets.  

The exciting lineup of films presents a whole new chapter for the DCEU, with the franchise embracing the concept of the Multiverse like never before. Robert Pattinson's The Batman is set on an entirely different Earth away from the prime DCEU where the Justice League film takes place. 

Meanwhile, The Flash is set to push the Multiverse into the forefront, while Black Adam will introduce Johnson's anti-hero into the fold. Jason Momoa's Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is set to introduce a new chapter of Arthur Curry's next adventure. 

The 2022 slate is sure to keep DC fans busy as things begin to roll out. To highlight the things to come, a special look at these films has been revealed.

DC Unveils Official Teaser for 2022 Slate

A Special Look at DC's Impressive 2022 Slate

This latest teaser offers a stellar look at the studio's stacked slate while also confirming that the film's respective release dates are here to stay. As the pandemic situation improves across the globe, this makes sense. 

Aside from unique DC logo designs, the 8-second teaser also showcases the new costumes of Ezra Miller's Scarlet Speedster and Jason Momoa's King of Atlantis.

Barry Allen's new suit appears to be similar to the costume of his New 52 counterpart from the comics, which is also in line with what the character wore during the Flashpoint storyline. Arthur Curry's new look is consistent with the character's design at the tail-end of the first movie, but it also has some adjustments, such as more detailed spikes in his arms and legs. 

Meanwhile, Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam suit has taken the spotlight once again. The character's costume has been the subject of secrecy ever since filming began, and it's good to see that the official promotional push is highlighting the comic-accurate suit. 

Robert Pattinson's Batman suit has been front and center in the film's marketing push, but this special look creates a menacing vibe that fits the overall gritty vibe of the character and Gotham City. 

All in all, this short teaser should boost the anticipation for DC's theatrical lineup for 2022. 

The Batman is set to premiere in theaters on March 4, 2022. Black Adam will arrive in theaters on July 29, 2022. The Flash will premiere on November 4, 2022, while Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom will debut on December 16, 2022.
