No firm release date besides “January 2018” as of yet, but man those sets look great.  There are some welcome new minifigs like Killer Frost and Krypto (and Lobo!), the vehicles all have unique and fun designs, and the push to combine the sets together adds to their playability.  Plus there’s the Batman minifig in the Rebirth costume, and can you really have too many Batman LEGOs?  I posit no.
