Justice League Movie Looking To Bring Back Batman v Superman Writer
Tomorrow could very well end up being one of the most memorable days in the history of comic book movies. Both Warner Bros. and Marvel Studios will be delivering presentations to the crowds of Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con, and what's expected is a slew of major announcements about future superhero films.

Hero Blend #27: What To Expect From Marvel, DC And Fox At San Diego Comic-Con 2014
In the world of comic book movies, there is perhaps no bigger event in the world than San Diego Comic-Con. Every year, the major studios arrive in the coastal Southern California city to present previews of their biggest genre and fan-driven projects – and perhaps the most anticipated ones are the big blockbuster superhero films coming out over the next few years.
Justice League Movie: What We Know So Far
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.
Hero Blend #22: The Future Of The DC Cinematic Universe
DC Comics has long had distinct advantage over Marvel where big screen adaptations are concerned. While the latter sold off the movie rights to many of its most popular characters years ago – including Spider-Man, the X-Men, and the Fantastic Four – the former made a partnership with Warner Bros. pictures years ago that kept all of the company’s characters under one roof. Only now, however, does it appear that DC is finally taking advantage of this fact.
Every New DC Comics Project, Ranked By Likelihood Of Actually Happening
All in all, a total of six new projects were "revealed" to be following Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016, and the list contained weird surprise after weird surprise. Three movies a year coming for two straight years. No new Batman movie on the horizon. Shazam and Wonder Woman getting solo movies in the immediate future. Man of Steel 2 not happening until 2018.
DC's Justice League Movie May Add Martian Manhunter
Clearly WB's got an interest in the character. They also have an interest in Darkseid, who has long been rumored to be the baddie for Justice League, which totally makes sense.

With DC Comics launching a new sneak attack regarding their plans to start their own cinematic universe, perhaps now's a good time to learn about just what their putting together.
Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash Getting Movies

Justice League Rumor Control: Is Matt Damon Playing Aquaman? Is The Release Date May 2017?
With news of a major new superhero movie comes absolutely insane and often hilarious rumor control, so it's only natural that yesterday's announcement regarding Zack Snyder directing the Justice League film has already been followed by plenty of of conjecture, hyperbole, and flat-out ridiculousness.
Justice League Movie To Be Directed By Zack Snyder
While Man of Steel ended up being one of the most divisive blockbusters of 2013, it's hard to deny its success. Made for an expensive $225 million, the film wound up being a great investment for the folks at Warner Bros., as the Superman film wound up making nearly $670 million worldwide. The high grosses were enough to secure director Zack Snyder the job of helming the sequel, the still untitled Batman vs. Superman, and now comes news that he has secured the job of directing the Justice League movie as well.
Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman Contract Includes A Justice League Movie And A Solo Film
The contract that Gadot signed is half the length of the ones most stars get over at Marvel Studios - where stars are locked in with six-picture deals - and the reason for this is because Warners is still unsure about how audiences will react to the portrayal.
The Rock Could Play Green Lantern According To Latest Rumor

Armie Hammer Explains Why His Batman Never Happened
One of the first casting rumors to hit at the time placed acting newcomer Armie Hammer taking the role of Batman. Hammer has since gone on to make a name for himself with starring turns in The Social Network, J. Edgar and, most recently, the big screen adaptation of The Long Ranger
How Christopher Nolan's Batman Could Still Be Part Of Justice League
It's been clear since the final moments of The Dark Knight Rises that Bale's Bruce Wayne was done with Gotham and super heroics in general, and though Man of Steel made reference to Wayne Industries, it had no explicit ties to Nolan's version of the Dark Knight. Henry Cavill is a new Superman, so he was getting a new Batman in the future… right?
Christian Bale Won't Be Justice League's Batman
“We were incredibly fortunate to get to make three," Bale told the site. That’s enough. Let’s not get greedy. Chris [Nolan] always said he wanted to make it one film at a time. And we ended up sitting there looking at each other, saying ‘We’re about to make the third.’ We never really knew if we were going to get to be there, but if that was how it was going to be, this was where it should end as well.”
