Justice League Movie Confirmed

We all knew it was coming, but now it's official! See who's directing.

With Batman vs. Superman adding more and more characters (in case you haven't heard, Ray Fisher as Cyborg is the latest addition), it's obvious Warner Bros. is taking big steps to establish a whole new DC cinematic universe. Today the studio has confirmed that yes, they're going to create a Justice League movie! Speaking with the Wall Street Journal, WB's president of worldwide production Greg Silverman confirmed that Batman vs. Superman will lead into Justice League. As expected, Zack Snyder (Man of Steel, Watchmen) will direct.

No release date has been set and a script is currently in development. The website states it's "unlikely" the movie will come out before 2018. Additionally, they say WB has other DC/Vertigo movies in development that are not connected to Justice League. Shazam, Metal Men, 100 Bullets, and Fables were listed.

As for a potential Wonder Woman movie, there's currently no plans, but WB's executives are "warm" to the idea. Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing, added, "with the right script, that could be viable. The world is ready for her."

So cool! But we pretty much already knew this was going to happen. I think the biggest news to come out of this is that theres going to be a Shazam! movie! Now that is awesome.

Im willing to bet this is what The Rocks secret DC project is! Black Adam maybe?

Well, they already have my favorite member Cyborg, and I'm hoping they will keep my second favorite member Green Lantern in it.

I don't care what anyone says, that director has made 3 of my favorite movies: MOS, 300, SUCKER PUNCH.

So what is Superman VS Batman? the cameo fest set up for this movie?

I really wish Snyder was not directing this.

I didn't hate Man of Steel, but the only live action DC I care about right now is Arrow.

Posted by scouts1998

remember when they announced one for 2015?

Edited by RulerOfThisUniverse

I can't wait! Shazam and Metal Men, too! This is awesome!

Posted by AweSam

I thought they already confirmed it.

Posted by frozenedge

I think the biggest surprise here is a possible Metal Men movie. If that isn't obscure I don't know what is. Excited for Justice League even though we all kinda figured it was coming around

i hope they use hal or john for gl.

If I hadn't heard this a billion times before, I'd be more excited. The more progress that is made, the happier I'll be.

Metal Men!

Edited by Wolverine08

Not really excited if MOS's creative team is on it, but still cool.

Okay X Men DOFP you get my money for now.

Edited by ArturoCalaKayVee

If DC wasn't such a sh!thole lately I'd be ecstatic about this but I will confess that this is pretty big news.

Edited by Captain13

This was foreseeable. My interest is contingent on the roster though--i.e. John Stewart. And my belief is contingent on seeing a trailer, which may not even come out for 4 years.

Knew it! :P

None of that is gonna matter if the Man of Steel sequel fails and right now, that movie is looking more like a rushed Justice League film rather than Batman vs. Superman.

Posted by TheMadMonkey

This fan of DC Comics for 40 years just can't be bothered to care anymore.

They would do a Metal Men movie before Wonder Woman

Wow just Wow

DC is gonna be too late to the superhero film party. by 2018, Marvel will have the hero movie industry under it's control. DC will have to make numerous phenomenal, I mean PHENOMENAL movies. even so, DC barely does this with their movies and it takes them years to put out just a single one. DC will have to think of something BIG to beat The Avengers and the rest of the Marvel cinematic Universe. I honestly think if they do, they will have a good chance of slightly appealing more to fans in the Adult age range. But they'd have to do a lot.(merchandising, etc.) Disney has Marvel to get money off of, so it'll be cranking out superhero movies until the cast gets fed up. they did it with Hannah Montana, and LOOK at Miley Cyrus. Marvel is a huge money market for Disney. no WAY they will let DC surpass them. unfortunately. DC was made for a more mature audience, and it's sad to say that's what is killing them. for me, I love DC's movies more than I do Marvel's. but it takes them too long to put out a single movie, that Marvel is gonna take over. DC has cartoon Network, as of connection with kids, and that's about it(let me know if there's more), and even those shows are slowly being cancelled. we'll just have to see.

How much do you wanna bet that we'll get a Batgirl movie before a Wonder Woman movie?

I may have already known this was coming, but that doesn't make it any less exciting!

He did say a "hero" so maybe he'll be the adult version of who ever plays shazam? I mean the kid will do the acting, and the adult guy will just need to be there for fight scene's.

Edited by Gotham331

I get the feeling that the two movies will be shot at the same time. I HOPE these two movies will be shot at the same time!

Edited by Jaydarocknrolla

I just dont see the majority of dcs characters other than batman and superman translationg well to live action. some of my favorites like black adam or martian manhunter i want to see them but i guess im a biased marvel fan. i see the manjority of their characters as vorny and 1 dimensional.

Edited by MatKrenz

So Zach Snyder is also gonna direct JL movie ? Talk about tunnel vision in the worst way imaginable.
