Update on Upcoming Warner Bros. Movies

Warner Bros. has scheduled “Sherlock Holmes 2″ for a mid-December 2011 release and is getting close to giving the go-ahead for a movie about beloved DC Comics superhero “Flash.”

The Dec. 16th release date next year for the “Sherlock” sequel was shown on a presentation by Warner chairman and CEO Barry Meyer. His appearance was part of TW’s investor day.

The first “Sherlock” was released this past December. Meyer said the 2011 film slate will have roughly 25 movies.

As other big releases already set, he mentioned:

- Red Riding Hood: April 22, 2011

- The Hangover 2: May 26

- Green Lantern (3D): June 17

- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II (3D): July 15

- Journey to the Center of the Earth 2 (3D): Sept. 23

- Happy Feet 2 (3D): Nov. 18

- New Year’s Eve: Dec. 9

Given that 2011 will be the last year with a “Potter” release, Meyer said he guesses that the most successful franchise in motion picture history will have exceeded $7.5 billion in worldwide boxoffice once the final installment ends its theatrical run. And he said his team has been preparing for the franchise’s end.

Meyer particularly highlighted that DC Comics characters are key parts of Warner’s future, mentioning a July 20, 2012 release date for the latest “Batman” film by Christopher Nolan and a holiday season 2012 “Superman” film.

He added that the studio is also “nearing” a greenlight for a “Flash” movie, with films featuring Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Mad magazine characters also in development.
