It's the announcement we knew was coming, we just didn't expect it so soon. A Justice League film will follow Batman vs. Superman and (this was a surprise) it will be directed by the very awesome Zack Snyder.
Warner Bros. president of worldwide production Greg Silverman, confirmed the news to The Wall Street Journal:
Like “Man of Steel” and its follow-up, which starts production next month, “Justice League” will be directed by Zack Snyder. Henry Cavill is expected to return as Superman, along with Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot, who play Batman and Wonder Woman, respectively, in 2016’s “Man of Steel” sequel tentatively titled “Batman vs. Superman.”
“It will be a further expansion of this universe,” said Mr. Silverman. “’Superman vs Batman’ will lead into ‘Justice League.’”
A script is still in development and Warner has not set a release date, though the movie is unlikely to come out before 2018. Mr. Silverman would not comment on what other heroes might join Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman in the movie.
The Hollywood Reporter says Batman vs. Superman and Justice League will be shot back to back, and estimates Justice League actually could come out in 2017.
GOOOOOOO Zack Snyder. More Henry as Man of Steel: #yespleaseandthankyou.
Yes!! So excited :)ReplyDelete
I agree. This is so exciting,and such great news for Henry Cavill fans everywhere. I remember a while back, there were posts on here that "rumors" were going around that WB might not take up Henry's option for a 3rd film.....Well, looks like they already they have! So I wonder what the "rumor-mongers" will be saying now?ReplyDelete
And it's interesting that Mr. Silverman refers to the as yet-untitled upcoming MOS sequel as "Superman vs Batman" (not the other way round) So guess who has top billing in the sequel... Go Henry!
Aside from the last MOS, Superman was not given his due credit like Batman. I really feel we are finally seeing Superman as he was meant to be played. I cannot wait for all the new films. Yay!!!Delete
HAPPY BIRTHDAY HENRY, they could not have chosen a more appropriate celebrity to play the role of SUPERMAN, you are truly gorgeous and very easy on the eyes. LUV YOUReplyDelete
