It’s been officially announced from Warner Bros themselves that a Justice League of America film is in development, and planned to follow on from the 2016 film currently referred to as Batman vs. Superman, which serves as the follow up to last year’s Man of Steel. Still with us?
Confirming rumours that the Warner Bros/DC Comics approach to its line-up of superhero films will differ from Marvel/Disney in that the franchise is limiting itself to one series of films for the time being. Don’t expect to see an origin film for the Flash, or Wonder Woman in the lead-up to Justice League.
It has been reported that while Warner Bros executives are open to the idea of spin-off or cross universe films, there’s nothing currently green lit for production at this time, and new characters such as Wonder Woman and the recently announced Cyborg (to be played by Ray Fisher) will be introduced in this one series of films.
JLA is estimated to be a 2018 or 2019 release, this announcement also comes with the news that Zack Snyder is in place to direct Justice League alongside returning cast members Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot.
With Disney releasing two films a year in their Avengers series and Warners just focusing on three films across potentially up to 5 or 6 years, it certainly leaves the amount of content from DC far behind that of Marvel, who despite the number of films being released, have proven with Captain America 2 that it’s not at the sacrifice of quality.
Excited about the Justice League film? Unsure about Zack Snyder at the helm? What characters would you be most excited to see in the roster? Zatanna, Hawkman, Red Tornado, Firestorm?
