CONFIRMED: Zack Snyder To Direct JUSTICE LEAGUE Movie After BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN

CONFIRMED: Zack Snyder To Direct JUSTICE LEAGUE Movie After BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN

With recent castings for the Batman vs. Superman movie, we all guessed this was the case, but the head at Warner Bros. confirms the Man of Steel sequel will lead into a Justice League film and more.

Though its been longtime speculated and hinted at, Greg Silverman, the president of production at Warner Bros. has confirmed today via The Wall Street Journal's Speakeasy that a Justice League movie is definitely in the pipeline and it will follow Zack Snyder's still untitled Man of Steel sequel. “It will be a further expansion of this universe,” he said. “’Superman vs Batman’ will lead into ‘Justice League.’” That's not all. Silverman says that the script for Justice League is still in development and there is no release date set (likely after 2018), but  Zack Snyder will return to direct the superero ensemble film with Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Gal Gadot among others expected to reprise their Batman vs. Superman roles. Greg Silverman kept mum on exactly which heroes will join the trinity of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, but the recent casting of Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and rumors of the Flash, Nightwing, and Aquaman appearing could be a clue. As for Gadot flying solo as Princess Diana in a Wonder Woman movie, Warner Bros. sadly have no plans for that, but are open to the possibilty. “That is our hope,” said the president of marketing Sue Kroll. “With the right script, that could be viable. The world is ready for her.” Anyhow, other DC Comics properties that are heading to the big-screen, though not connected to the developing Justice League universe, include Shazam, Metal Men, 100 Bullets, and Fables. What do you think?

UPDATE: This should be classified as a rumor, given the source has done so himself, but prior to today's announcement, Latino Review was informed that Justice League is aiming for May 5, 2017.


 
Tentively titled Batman vs. Superman, the movie is directed by Zack Snyder from a story by David Goyer and screenplay by Chris Terrio, and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot, Diane Lane, Tao Okamoto, Callan Mulvey, with Holly Hunter, Laurence Fishburne, and Jeremy Irons. And as of right now, the film is scheduled for release on May 6, 2016.
