DC Comics has announced its newest variant theme month for March 2015 -- and the publisher plans to head to the movies. While none of the covers will be a first look at Warner Bros. ambitious DC Comics-based film slate, the images are certainly movie-related, as some of the publisher's top artists do their own, DC-inspired take on iconic film posters. Announced via Screenrant, /Film, IGN and HitFix, the 22 covers span films from "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure," "Free Willy," "Jailhouse Rock," "The Fugitive," "The Matrix," "Magic Mike" and many more.

UPDATE 12/12/2014 12:00 PM PT: Images of Buzzfeed's four cover reveals -- "Catwoman," "Grayson," "Justice League Dark" and "Justice League" have been added to the image gallery.

UPDATE 12/12/2014 2:57 PM PT: DC Comics has released the final two cover images of "Sinestro" and "Wonder Woman." Both have been added to the image gallery.

Check out the images and the full list of comics set for the variant covers below.
