CinemaCon 2022 Day 2’s “BIG PICTURE” presentation from Warner Bros. kickstarted with a big sizzle reel revealing an exciting slate of DC films namely The Flash, Black Adam, Aquaman and the Last Kingdom and Shazam! Fury of the Gods. While The Batman wasn’t among them, its success deserved a separate announcement from the director announcing the green light for The Batman 2 as Robert Pattinson reprises The Dark Knight and Matt Reeves returns to direct.

Warner Bros. Hall-H-Esque’s presentation at CinemaCon 2022 wasn’t just all DC with the studio also offering a sizzle reel at Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis and a trailer for Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling starring Harry Styles and Florence Pugh. Furthermore, teasing footage from the Timothée Chalamet starring musical, Wonka was showcased. In fact, the DUNE star was also shown singing and says, “You have never had chocolate like this,” and begins to dance while walking down a pothole. What’s more, the studio released the first look at Margot Robbie as Barbie in Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie set to theatres in 2023.

“You’ve never had chocolate like this!” We just saw a bunch of footage from #Wonka – looks like a big, colorful, feel-good musical rooted in the relationship between Wonka (Timothée Chalamet) & his mom (Sally Hawkins). Will be a big holiday family movie, for sure#CinemaCon pic.twitter.com/qcFt5ma9gw

Just saw the first trailer for Oliva Wilde's Don't Worry Darling. It looks and seems like Pleasantville mixed with Black Swan mixed with…Logan's Run? Supremely intrigued by everything about it. She said it was inspired by Inception, Truman Show & Matrix. #CinemaCon

Speaking more on the DC Extended Universe, Black Adam titular star Dwayne Johnson made an appearance at CinemaCon 2022 and took the stage before unveiling the trailer. “This truly is a dream of mine. I see Black Adam as being the Dirty Harry of the superhero world,” said The Rock. Johnson also voices Krypto for DC’s super pets which also got a new trailer, screened at the BIG PICTURE presentation.
During Luhrmann’s presentation addressing Elvis, the director also shared his love for The Batman franchise. Though he then stated, “But we can’t only live on Batman.” Journalists present during the sizzle’s screening praised the film highly.
