Justice League Movie: What We Know So Far
After years of watching the Marvel Cinematic Universe slowly build into the powerhouse that it is today, now it is time for DC Comics to do the same. Teaming up with Warner Bros., the company began an incredible journey in 2013 with the release of Man of Steel, and they are currently hard at work on a follow-up, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Much like how Marvel worked towards making the first Avengers movie, however, DCís ultimate goal is to make a Justice League film Ė and we are now well on the way to seeing that actually happened.
Just like we have with many of the other major blockbusters set to come out over the next few years, we have researched and gathered as much information about the development of the Justice League movie as we could possibly find to try and put together a picture of what we can expect from the superhero team up movie. What do we know about the film thus far? Read on to find out!
Zack SnyderAs the guy at the helm of both Man of Steel and the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, director Zack Snyder has clearly earned the trust of the brass at DC Comics and Warner Bros., and as a result has secured his place in the future of the big screen franchise. While few official details have actually come out about Justice League, one thing that we do know is that it will be Snyder helming the film. The script for the movie is currently being written, and while we donít know the identity of the person holding the pen, presumably Snyder has a good amount of creative and story input, having played a huge role in getting the DC Cinematic Universe to the place where it is right now.
SupermanDC Comics obviously has huge plans for their future in Hollywood, but as of now they really only have one hero established: Superman. Henry Cavill made his debut in the role starring in 2013ís Man of Steel, and it looks like he will be taking on the part for many years to come. He is currently in the middle of working on the follow-up, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and itís pretty much impossible that a Justice League movie would be made without him involved. The Man of Tomorrow is such a key piece of the puzzle, in fact, that if rumors are true, we will be seeing Man of Steel 2 in May 2018 as well.
BatmanAfter spending years with Christopher Nolan and Christian Baleís incarnation of Batman, we are now just a couple years away from seeing a whole new version of the Caped Crusader. For 2016ís Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, director Zack Snyder has enlisted Ben Affleck to play the new Dark Knight, and in addition to that movie, the character is then expected to show up in Justice League, rumored for 2017. Unlike the last time the character was rebooted for the big screen, this new version wonít be a young Bruce Wayne just starting out on his mission to clean up Gotham, but instead will be a veteran badass inspired by the pages of Frank Millerís comics from the 1980s.
