In a shareholders meeting early this week, Warner Bros. has revealed its slate of tentpoles in the coming years, and, as expected, it's heavy on superhero movies.

Robert Downey Jr. will join Chris Evans in Captain America 3, which will kick off the Civil War storyline.

With Margot Robbie heading to Suicide Squad, DreamWorks is reportedly offering the lead role in Ghost in the Shell to Scarlett Johansson.

Kate Beckinsale out of Underworld? Not so fast, according to her husband and director Len Wiseman. There's another film "being developed in the works with Kate possibly as well," he said.

Even though the script for Pacific Rim 2 is still being worked on, they're already looking ahead to Pacific Rim 3, according to Guillermo del Toro.
