It's confirmed! As we first broke back in January, the Justice League movie will indeed follow Batman vs Superman! Ben Fritz from the Wall Street Journal is also reporting that Zack Snyder is officially on board to direct Justice League! Henry Cavill is expected to return as Superman, along with Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg in 2016’s Man of Steel sequel tentatively titled Batman vs. Superman. Other Justice Leaguers should be announced soon.
In the WSJ article, Warner Bros. president of worldwide production Greg Silverman acknowledges for the first time that the studio has set plans to make a Justice League movie.
It will be a further expansion of this universe,” said Mr. Silverman. “’Superman vs Batman’ will lead into ‘Justice League.’
But that is not all, folks!
We know the rumored release date of the Justice League movie! According to my sources, I'm hearing...
May 5, 2017
Again, that is the rumor I am hearing. It makes sense. If the President of Production is officially going on the record by saying that the movie will indeed follow Batman Vs Superman then May 5, 2017 is a great date to plant a flag. Early May is now the most sought after release date in the tentpole business. I wouldn't expect confirmation untill comic con at the earliest.
Borys Kit from The Hollywood Reporter just backed up our claim!
So pretty awesome news on a Sunday night. What do you guys think? Chime in below!
