It’s Official: JUSTICE LEAGUE To Be Part Of A “Series” Of DC Comics Movies

WB prez reveals the studio actually has a plan. 

We knew it was happening. We knew that somewhere on the Burbank lot of Warner Bros there was a plan being hatched for DC movies that was more than just "Well, throw Batman in there and see what happens." We still don't know what that plan is, but after a New York Time profile of WB prez Kevin Tsujihara reveals that the studio is planning a whole series of movies based on DC Comics properties. 

As for DC Entertainment, cross-studio collaboration to make better use of its comic book characters appears to have accelerated considerably since Mr. Tsujihara took over, in part because he eliminated some management layers. (He has not named a chief operating officer and did not replace Mr. Rosenblum and Mr. Robinov, choosing instead to divide up their duties and assume some himself.) Two new television shows are coming to the CW and Fox, including one based on the Flash and another on a young Batman, and a film series will be announced in the near future, Mr. Tsujihara said. It is expected to include a “Justice League” movie.

Near future almost certainly means Comic-Con 2014, where we should expect Marvel to lay out the shape of Phase Three as well, making this a helluva year for nerds. 

What will be announced? It's anybody's guess, although we know Gal Gadot is signed on for a Wonder Woman movie. The Rock says he and DC have settled on a character (I thought at first he would be Lobo, but it seems like he might be Black Adam, meaning we could get a SHAZAM! movie). With The Flash being relegated to cheesery on the CW will he be a part of the universe? With Green Lantern having bombed will he be invited to the Justice League gangbang?

I'm guessing this article has sent the scoop hunters scoop hunting. We may have more information before WB has a chance to announce it all for themselves.
