Although the state of the Justice League is up in the air right now as far as Ben Affleck's involvement as Batman and who will take over for Henry Cavill as Superman, there are plenty of other promising projects coming out of the DC Extended Universe.

In just a few weeks, Jason Momoa will make a splash in Aquaman, and 2019 and 2020 will be full of highly-anticipated films as well. Outside of the DCEU, Todd Phillips's as-yet-untitled Joker film will see Joaquin Phoenix take a different approach to the Clown Prince of Crime.

Here's the current full schedule:

Aquaman: December 21, 2018

Shazam!: April 5, 2019​

​Joker: October 4, 2019

Birds of Prey: February 7, 2020​

Wonder Woman 1984: June 5, 2020​

As of right now, Aquaman and Shazam! are the only films to have trailers released, but plenty of photos and footage have been revealed from the set of Joker, as well as promotional photos from Wonder Woman 1984. Margot Robbie also recently revealed the full (and rather long) name of her upcoming film: Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). More and more info is coming out about these films by the day.

Other DC projects in the works include The Flash standalone film, Matt Reeves's The Batman, Suicide Squad 2, which will be written and possibly directed by James Gunn, and the as-yet-untitled Batgirl film, among others.

Bran Reveals Meaning of the Three-Eyed Raven and How That Impacts Future of Westeros

Earlier this year, Night King actor Vladimir Furdik confirmed that his Game of Thrones character "has a target he wants to kill," and it appears that last night's episode, "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms," may have revealed who that person is: Bran Stark, who is now the Three-Eyed Raven. In a meeting before the dead march on Winterfell, Bran says, “He’ll come for me. He’s tried before. Many times, with many Three-eyed Ravens.”

When explaining why it's him the Night King wants, Bran revealed what the Three-Eyed Raven does, and what his death would mean for Westeros.

According to Bran, the Night King's goal is "An endless night. He wants to erase this world." Bran goes on to say, "I am its memory," referring to the fact that he, as the Three-Eyed Raven, knows everything that has happened in the history of Westeros. To this, Sam Tarly replies, "Memories don’t come from books. And your stories aren’t just stories. If I wanted to erase the world of men, I’d start with you.”

The Night King was able to get his hands on Bran in a vision, and Bran is permanently marked from the encounter, which means the Night King always knows where he is. Now, Bran—guarded by Theon—will serve as bait to lure the Night King into Winterfell.

Could this be foreshadowing the fact that Bran won't see the end of the season? We'll just have to wait and see what's coming in episode three and beyond.

Game of Thrones's Episode 3 Teaser May Contain a Hidden Message from Daenerys to Jon

Season 8, episode 2 of Game of Thrones, "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms," had its fair share of moments that could have given away hints for episodes to come, like in the writers' decision to include "Jenny's Song," or in Jon Snow telling Daenerys Targaryen that they're related.

One fan theory about the fate of Westeros, however, comes from the previews for next week's episode. Posted by Reddit user IgnorantSportsFan, the theory centers around one pivotal line uttered during a conversation between Daenerys and Jon: "The dead are already here."

"That line happens between Dany and Jon, and felt super significant—but we already see the army of the dead, felt it was too obvious to be their reaction to them," the theory begins."Then it clicked: The crypt is full of dead people. All episode they keep repeating and emphasizing how safe it was in the crypt, but its GOT and we cannot have nice things. So is it possible we have old Starks rising from the crypts? Or is that too far fetched?"

The theory certainly adds up, emphasized by the reminder that there were clips included of Arya Stark fighting in the crypts.

Could the dead be rising in the crypts of Winterfell as the White Walkers rapidly approach? We'll find out soon.
