Best Warner Bros. releases from 2022


Outside of Disney, Warner Bros. has Hollywood’s most valuable IP addresses, and the studio’s 2022 release schedule is one of the most remarkable yet. There’s so much to look forward to this year, with Fantastic Beasts’ third film, a Sesame Street revival, and the Mars-based sci-fi Moonshot, but these films are barely touching the surface.

It is possible that other Warner Bros. are coming out at the end of the year, which has yet to be confirmed. But, until then, the year is filled with DC movies, vintage thrillers, musical biopics, and some really terrifying automotive fears.

5. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom

It’s amazing how much time has passed since Aquaman’s first movie hit theaters. It will have been four years between the two films when Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom releases in December. This is even more reason to be happy, because we have greatly missed the personality of Arthur Curry, the one-liners and the surf of Parademons.

While some Redditors have strong feelings about Aquaman, like the original film’s lack of focus, James Wan returns to the director’s chair. This implies that there will be even more spectacular action and massive sets than in the last installment. But what makes the movie most fascinating is that Jason Mamoa gets writing credit, helping to develop the sequel’s narrative.

4. Evil Dead Rise

Not only are there three original films in the Evil Dead series, there is also a remake and a phenomenally successful TV show Ash vs. the Evil Dead. Instead of being a sequel to the 2013 remake, as most people think, Evil Dead Rise is billed as the fourth installment of the original series.

The good news is, it could signal that humor is back. Comedy is an important component of the original films, but it was noticeably absent from the remake. Unfortunately, while this appears to be a comeback for the series, Bruce Campbell will not be reprising his role as Ash.

3. Elvis

Rock singer biopics are hugely popular right now, with 2019’s Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocketman, as well as this year’s Tick, Tick, Boom, and there’s no indication the trend is slowing down. Elvis, a biopic about the king of rock & roll, will be released on Warner Bros. in 2022.

Interestingly, the actor portrayed as the eponymous figure, Austin Butler, is not the best known; in fact, fans might recognize him best as Manson family member Tex Watson on Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Baz Luhrman, one of the best musical directors of his time, is also directing the film. This implies that Elvis could be filled with gorgeous looks, whimsical elements, and a hint of postmodernism.

2. KIMI

Steven Soderbergh is one of the busiest directors today, having directed two films in 2021 and one in progress. The filmmaker also appears to have a good working relationship with Warner Bros., as No Sudden Move and Let Them All Talk are two of HBO Max’s biggest exclusive movies this year.

KIMI will follow suit and the director will do what he does best. When a lady goes to report a brutal incident that she has observed, she encounters obstacles to employment in the film.

  1. Batman

The public has seen a lot of Batman on the big screen lately, whether it’s in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Batman v. Superman, or even as a youngster in Joker. However, there hasn’t been a standalone Batman movie for almost a decade. It may surprise you, but the gap between The Dark Knight Rises and The Batman is much longer than the gap between Batman & Robin and Batman Begins.

With the fantastic cast and the movie’s mission statement, there’s a good chance this will be the best Batman movie of all time. The cast includes Robert Pattinson, Colin Farrell, Zoe Kravitz, Jeffrey Wright and many more. More excitingly, the film aims to portray Batman as the world’s best investigator, something even the best Batman movies have failed to achieve.
