Zack Snyder Confirms That If WB Greenlights JUSTICE LEAGUE, He Will Be Asked To Direct

In the latest issue of Empire Magazine, director Zack Snyder confirms that if Man of Steel is a box office success and Warner Bros. decides to make a Justice League film, he'll be asked to direct. Reading between the lines, that means Justice League fans need to $upport Man of Steel.




I've read this particular section in the latest issue of Empire Magazine a few times now and there appears to be a little wriggle room in the Snyders' response to the subject of a potential Justice League film. Director Zack Snyder (Watchmen, Sucker Punch, Man of Steel) and his Producer-wife, Deborah Snyder (Man of Steel) confirm in the latest issue of Empire that a Justice League film depends on the box office success of Man of Steel and if Warner Bros. decides to greenlight such a film, Zack will indeed be asked to direct it. Now they don't outright say that if the new Superman film is a success that automatically guarantees a Justice League film is coming, only that Justice League depends on Man of Steel; which is a statement that would hold true for any DC adaptation following in the film's wake. Also, they state that Zack will be asked to direct Justice League but don't specify whether he'll accept the job. However, the director did indicate some excitement about the chances of creating a DC cinematic universe, “I have a hard time having perspective. But I have to say that it is everything that I could have hoped for. Touch wood that I am not insane, but it feels really good," said Snyder.

Obviously, Snyder is remaining cautiously optimistic - you don't want to count your chickens before they hatch in this situation but the pre-release buzz for Man of Steel has all been incredibly positive thus far. With a purported production budget of $175M it's anyone's guess what the magic box office number for WB is that will lead studio execs to pull the trigger on whatever their post Man of Steel plans may be.
