Revenge of the Fans reports that DC Films has shelved plans for a Legion of Doom movie.
At the beginning of the year, Warner Bros. promoted Walter Hamada to oversee the studios’ DC Films division. Now, Revenge of the Fans reports that Hamada has shelved the previous leadership’s plans for a Legion of Doom film.
According to the outlet, Hamada is focused on developing the forthcoming DC films as standalone stories and does not see the point of building towards a super-villain crossover for the time being. The concept had been teased during a post-credits scene for Justice League in which Lex Luthor summons Deathstroke to propose forming their own team and Black Manta’s membership in the supervillain group was reportedly going to be set up in a post-credit scene for Aquaman before plans changed.
The outlet also adds that a crossover event like Batman v Superman or Justice League may not occur for several years.
Warner Bros. and DC Films is currently developing several films, including a Flash standalone movie, The New Gods, Man of Steel 2, Nightwing, Cyborg, Gotham City Sirens, Birds of Prey, Black Adam, Booster Gold, Justice League Dark, Green Lantern Corps, Suicide Squad 2, Batgirl, Blackhawk, and a standalone Joker origin film separate from the shared cinematic universe.

10 DC Comics Heroes That Should Be In The Next ‘Justice League’ Movie
The Justice League is DC’s premiere superhero team. These characters are the biggest names in the DC Comics universe. Zack Snyder’s Justice League movie introduced six members to audiences in the form of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash.
Despite the first Justice League film underperforming, there appears to be a sequel in some form of active development over at Warner Brothers. Based on the first film’s post-post scene, the team could be facing off against the Legion of Doom, so it appears the Justice League may need some extra assistance. Luckily there is a wide array of DC characters from the comics to pull from to strengthen the team’s roster.
