Warner Bros. and DC Films have three DC Comics-based movies releasing in theaters in 2021; that's one more film than DC has ever put out in a single year. DC never releases more than two movies in a year, so 2021 will certainly be huge for them. In comparison, DC Films' chief rival, Marvel Studios, started releasing three movies per year in 2017, and they'll be moving up to four movies per year in 2022.

DC Films currently has eight movies with confirmed release dates; one of them is still set to theaters in 2020. That's highly anticipated sequel to Patty Jenkins' record-breaking movie, Wonder Woman. Titled , the film takes Gal Gadot's Diana Prince to the 1980s to face off against Cheetah (Kristin Wiig) and somehow reunite with her love interest from the first movie, Steve Trevor (Chris Pine).

The DCEU got off to a rocky first few years, with and . Though both movies featured DC's two flagship heroes (and more), neither film was the box office hit that DC and Warner Bros. were expecting. In fact, Justice League was largely considered a box office disaster. Things started to look up for DC when Wonder Woman raked in $821 million, followed by , which topped the $1 billion mark and became the highest grossing film based on DC Comics. Both and (which isn't set in the DCEU) have also performed well at the box office. It remains to be seen if DC will be able continue this success in the coming years. 2021 will be a major test, considering that its DC's busiest year yet.

James Gunn, who helmed both movies for Marvel Studios, will direct the sequel to 2016's Suicide Squad for DC. The first movie centered on a group of super villains sent on dangerous, secret missions for the government. will presumably follow the same premise, and feature at least some of the same characters. Regardless, it will serve as a soft reboot of sorts, hence the title. It's been said that The Suicide Squad will be able to stand on its own. One thing that will make it different from the first movie is a greater emphasis on comedy.

is missing Jared Leto's Joker and Will Smith's Deadshot, but the movie still boasts an enormous cast full of both A-list stars and lesser-known actors, including several returning actors from its predecessor, along with Idris Elba, Nathan Fillion, John Cena, Peter Capaldi, Michael Rooker, Taikia Waititi, and quite a few more. However, it's likely that a large portion of the cast won't even survive the first half of the movie. Some of the confirmed characters are D-list villains from DC Comics who could end up dying in the movie's opening act, making way for a new version of the Suicide Squad.

Directed by Matt Reeves, releases in June 2021. With Ben Affleck no longer attached to the role of the Caped Crusader, DC's first solo Batman movie since The Dark Knight Rises will star Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne instead. So far, the cast of The Batman indicates that the movie won't be set in the DCEU, since it features two characters who appeared in Batman v. Superman and Justice League, but neither of them are being played by the same actors. In The Batman, Andy Serkis plays Alfred Pennyworth, with Jeffrey Wright as Batman's longtime ally in the police force, Commissioner Gordon. Zoe Kravitz and Paul Dano will fill the roles of key Batman characters, Catwoman and Riddler, respectively. Colin Farrell is set to play Penguin.

isn't an origin story, but it will take place before Batman becomes the world's greatest detective. The Batman will indeed bring out the detective side of the Dark Knight, which suggests that a mystery will be at the heart of the plot. This could be why The Batman is expected to include multiple Batman villains. Having several enemies (particularly the Riddler) in one movie could make finding the real mastermind an interesting challenge for Batman.

In DC Comics, Black Adam is the villainous opposite of Shazam, and a character who possesses a similar powerset. Introduced in 1945, the immensely powerful Black Adam was an Egyptian hero who became corrupted by power. Over time, he became enemies of the Marvel Family (aka Shazam Family), and has long been at odds with Shazam and other DC heroes. Though Black Adam was utilized as a villain for most of his comic book history, he was reimagined as an anti-hero in the 2000s.

Before the DC Extended Universe even had a name, DC was working on bringing Black Adam to the big screen. In 2014, Dwayne Johnson confirmed that he had been cast as Black Adam. At the time, it was expected that Johnson's character would appear in Shazam!, but this was not the case. Black Adam was dropped from Shazam!, allowing him to be introduced in a solo movie  before meeting the DC superhero. The Black Adam movie is finally moving forward, with Jaume Collet-Sera attached to direct. Black Adam will begin filming in late summer 2020, assuming Coronavirus allows it. What story DC and Warner Bros. have in mind for Black Adam's live-action debut hasn't been revealed, though Johnson's comments may be indicative of the direction the film will take. Interestingly, Johnson's description of Black Adam suggests that the character will be a superhero, rather than a villain or anti-hero.

At long last, and to the delight of millions of demanding fans, Warner Media will finally unleash Zack Snyder's cut of on the HBO Max streaming service. There's no specific release date besides sometime in 2021, but the excitement is palpable for the finished product. Snyder says his cut may take the form of an episodic series, or a single four-hour movie, depending on how things turn out.

United States Customs and Border Protection agents have discovered fake Pokémon toys with a street value of over six hundred thousand dollars.

86,000 Counterfeit Pokemon Figures Caught By U.S. Customs Bust

Over six hundred thousand dollars worth of counterfeit  figures were recently seized by United States Customs and Border Protection agents, giving a whole new meaning to the phrase "Gotta catch 'em all!" It's no surprise that Nintendo's franchise has often been a target of fake and counterfeit products, especially considering how popular the series continues to be since its original release in the mid 1990's.

There are hundreds and hundreds of official Pokémon creatures, ranging from popular characters like Pikachu and Squirtle to less popular ones like Trubbish and Vanilluxe, a Pokémon which is literally an ice cream cone. Despite some of these weaker members of the National Dex, Pokémon fans love collecting toys of their favorites, and many of them likely have their own stories about coming across fake, unofficial Pokémon figurines.

However, a large batch of fake Pokémon figures will now never make it to market, thanks to some hard work by the United States Customs and Border Protection Agency. As reported by CBP.gov (thanks, ) officers in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania discovered over eighty-six thousand counterfeit Pokémon figures which had arrived in a shipment from Hong Kong and were labelled as "plastic furnishing articles." The toys were identified as fake and also designated "a potential choking hazard" by the authorities.

According to the Customs officials, they worked with the copyright holders to determine whether or not the figurines were legitimate, and once it was determined the items were counterfeit they were seized for "violating U.S. intellectual property rights." The fifteen boxes of illegal  toys were originally destined for "an address in Snyder County, Pennsylvania" and served to add to the roughly four million dollars the United States Customs office obtains per day in illegal Intellectual Property rights violations. According to the office, not only are these counterfeit toys designated a choking hazard but they also "tend to be coated in excessive levels of lead paint," which has been proven to be toxic to humans.

While some of the toys in the images pictured in this article look somewhat similar to their official counterparts, some (like Ekans) are immediately, noticeably fake. Although there are likely more than a few disappointed vendors in Pennsylvania right now, it's probably for the best that these illegal  counterfeit toys have been captured by the authorities, especially since, as the Customs office notes, many fake toys contain high levels of poisonous materials. Hopefully, this bust by the CBP will show illegitimate Pokémon sellers that the government is paying attention, and they will do their best to catch 'em all.
