We’re getting closer to the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and thanks to some shaky marketing, people are already wondering if the film will be as successful as Warner Bros. hopes. Some have even questioned whether the studio will stick with Zack Snyder and their announced upcoming slate of films, including the first Justice League movie.
You can put your worries aside as far as that goes. According to Entertainment Weekly, Zack Snyder is in, and Justice League - Part 1 will start production in London April 11. What happens after that may remain up in the air, but it looks like this part is going down. They even have a quote from Snyder:
“The idea that we could begin to boot up a Justice League concept was a cool thing…It was a little bit of an ‘about time’ moment, and I don’t blame [the studio] for feeling that way, because it’s a long time coming,” he said. “But I do feel like it’s a little bit of a creative hurdle. It seems like an easy thing to do at first glance, the idea that, ‘Oh, we just get the rest of the superheroes in there.’ But you have to [establish] a world where they can exist.”
For those who don’t remember, this iteration of the Justice League will include Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman. We’ll see Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman in Dawn of Justice but likely just in cameos. Their big team movie won’t come out until November 17, 2017, which is a few months after we’ll get a look at Wonder Woman’s solo film.
