A report from Bleeding Cool says DC Entertainment plans to adapt several of its lesser-known comic book characters for the big screen. Some of the names that the BC article specifically mentions are: 'Suicide Squad', 'Booster Gold', 'Team 7', and 'Deathstroke'.
BC doesn't provide any info on how they came about this top-secret info, but I'm inclined to believe it, nonetheless. The report goes on to say that DC will make a big announcement in 2014 about its plan to release two movies per year - one in the spring and another sometime in the fall. To give you some idea of the budget for these flicks, BC estimates that they would cost in the $20 to $40 million dollar range. Compare that to the $200+ million it cost to make 2013's 'Man of Steel' and you can see how this would be a major change in strategy.
