Zack Snyder to Direct JUSTICE LEAGUE [Updated]

     April 27, 2014


It was bound to happen eventually.  We’re still over two years away from Batman vs. Superman (unofficial title), but Warner Bros. is chomping at the bit to get to Justice League.  With the Man of Steel sequel, what began as a pairing of DC’s most popular superheroes has grown to include Wonder Woman and even Cyborg, although we don’t know how big their roles will be.  Warner Bros. president of worldwide production Greg Silverman says that Batman vs. Superman will lead into Justice League, which means that the earliest we’ll probably see the famous superhero team on screen is 2018.  Beyond Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Silverman wouldn’t specify which superheroes would appear in Justice League.  For those wondering, the founding members in the comics were Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, Green Lantern, and Martian Manhunter.  Since details on Batman vs. Superman are still scarce, it’s possible some of these heroes might pop up in the upcoming sequel.

And who will be the visionary behind the Justice League movie?  Director Zack Snyder.  Hit the jump for more.  Batman vs. Superman opens May 6, 2016. [We've updated this story with new information.  More after the jump.]

justice-league-movie-zack-snyder-henry-cavillThe Wall Street Journal also reports that Zack Snyder will direct Justice League.  He can now look forward getting questions about two superhero movies instead of just one (although I suspect he still would have gotten “Are you directing Justice League?” on a semi-regular basis).  It also means that the tone Snyder established with Man of Steel will remain through both pictures.

But what about other aspects of the DC Movie Universe?  Wonder Woman still hasn’t received her own movie, and according to WSJ, “Warner executives said they are warm to the idea.”  Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing (always be sure to consult the marketing people), says “That is our hope.  With the right script, that could be viable.  The world is ready for her.”

It doesn’t sound like Wonder Woman will get a movie in between Batman vs. Superman and Justice League, but there’s room for another hero to squeeze into 2017.  It doesn’t even have to be a Justice League member.  But with Marvel set on releasing at least two movies every year, I doubt Warner Bros. wants to leave a vacuum when they could keep their superhero properties rolling.

I’m sure you all have plenty of opinions on this news, so sound off in the comments section.

UPDATE: Justice League will shoot back-to-back with Batman vs. Superman, according to Borys Kit.  This means that a 2017 release for Justice League is in the cards.

    Noooooooo. *with Darth Vadar Voice*

    Sigh. What evs I guess.

  • Sameer Shahnewaz

    Advice to snyder , go for a watchmen-esque justice league version , don’t make a cg fest movie plz plz plz , keep the actions to a minimal

    • pkh

      Actions are the whole meaning of JL, What are u talking about?!!! minimal!!!!

    • vpuik

      That’s right! We want a movie with justice league sitting around a table and talking for three hours.

      • The Flobbit

        The funny thing is if Marvel made a movie of the Avengers sitting around, talking for three hours, people would watch it, and it would get 3 sequels, a sidequel, and a spinoff TV show.

      • Lex Walker

        IF Whedon was writing the dialogue, yeah, I might pay to watch that.

      • The Flobbit

        If Whedon wasn’t writing the dialogue, I’d watch it. Can’t stand his cocky, meta, cheesy crap.

      • vpuik

        It wasn’t Marvel. Fox made the early xmen movies, but you’re right, they did get several sequels.

      • The Flobbit

        What the hell are you talking about X-Men for?

      • vpuik

        Because that was the one thing that turned me off the original X-Men movies. There was bit too much sitting around and talking around camp fire. :) May be good for a movie, but did not feel like an epic superhero flick.

      • The Flobbit

        Haha! I laugh at your ADD, hyper-violent brain. I don’t think there is a more epic superhero film than X2.

    • mattinacan

      i agree, go for something more character driven like watchmen. MOS was a non stop action-fest, incredibly boring.

      • Werefon

        Also, they should have philosophical conversations about meaning of life and Kryptonian anatomy since the neck is a weak spot!

    • YodaRocks

      Too much trust, you have, on somebody so trustful, not.

  • Drake

    I would have so much respect/would be so much more excited if Stephen Amell’s Green Arrow was a part of the Justice League movie. Man of Steel honestly pales in comparison to what Arrow puts out on a weekly basis.

    • Bruce Wayne

      I have a feeling that they will jump straight into Justice League, with it shooting back to back during Batman vs. Superman’s shoot. It’d make sense from a financial and timing standpoint as well.

      • Clark Kent

        Justice League: 2017

    • mike alexander

      Never gonna happen dude. You don’t sully your big-screen tentpole flick with TV actors.

      • 80sRobot

        If GA appears in the JL movie, I suspect they will recast the role with another actor.

        Same deal with The Flash — another actor will be cast for the movie. (Or, Warner Bros may soon elect to cancel plans for the series after the pilot is finished.)

        The impression I get is that Warner Bros. is willing to have multiple continuities running at once. Each DC-related TV series will be its own universe, and the movies will form a DC movie-verse, but these movies will not be tied directly to any of the TV shows. Sorry, Arrow fans.

      • mike alexander

        Yes indeed. You either get a relative unknown or critically acclaimed newcomer – like Jeremy Renner was – a working actor who’s not really mainstream, like Cavill, or cast a star.

      • Seanpb

        I feel bad for Ryan Reynolds. I think he’s perfectly able to carry one of these superhero films, but GL was a misstep.

        I don’t blame him for taking the gig, but rather those at Warner’s who didn’t see him and immediately think ‘if we’re casting superhero films, this guy isn’t Green Lantern, he’s the Flash.’

        Because of this they’ll create confusion with the recast (not that many people remember GL) and have burned the opportunity to have a known name in their big superhero team up.

      • Drake

        Yeah, I know :P Can’t blame a fan for hoping though haha

  • Shane Fell

    Wow, DC following Marvel’s lead. No surprises there.

    They actually wanted to to do this a little while ago, that was what the Green Lantern movie was for. To set up their own Universe.

    • Matt

      I haven’t even seen “The Green Lantern”, but logically they should keep Ryan Reynolds as GL.

      • Sean Chandler

        The movie wasn’t well received. How is that logical?

      • Matt

        I understand that it barely made back it’s budget and was panned by critics. I just think that because Ryan Reynolds is a great actor and with a good script and ensemble cast, I would say why not. From what I’ve read, the screenplay and execution of ‘Green Lantern’ was more of a problem than Reynolds. And also, who really wants another reboot of a character that’s not even a decade old.
        Like I said, I haven’t seen the movie and I still know that Reynolds was Green Lantern which I think says something.

      • jack

        if warner bros has balls they’ll stick it out with reynolds. this could be one of those rare turn around sequels

      • mike alexander

        Well, they did it with Hulk. And even that was ‘meh’ ( imo. ) But it doesn’t matter : throw the Hulk in Avengers and people love him.

      • ʝoe ßloggs

        Yes I agree, they should keep Reynolds’ GL and keep that movie as canon. DC just doesn’t have the time or resources to reboot or paint a new background story for him.

        In fact, it could be that the JL movie’s antagonist is a galactic threat – something precipitated by the GL Corps involvement in.

      • DNAsplitter

        Very least they could have Reynolds as a cameo at the end of BVS where they show his death and from their the ring goes to John Stewart setting up the Justice League film. Think G.I. Joe Retaliation w Channing Tatum as it’s the same idea.

      • ʝoe ßloggs

        Yeah…could work also.

      • Merlin235

        WB’s biggest hurdle in keeping Reynolds might be contract talks. Marvel has these guys for 8 films, and I’m not sure whether WB planned that far ahead.

      • MistaWu

        I think Reynolds would do it if for nothing else but to redeem himself/character. I think he was the best part of GL. He had NOTHING to work with, including his future wife.

      • Sean Chandler

        Yeah I didn’t think Reynolds was the problem at all. But it seems unlikely that the studio would want to include something which reminds them of the bad taste the MOVIE left in their mouths.

        The other problem is that Green Lantern didn’t have the same tone as Man of Steel, and given that they’re having Zach Snyder direct everything, they seem to very much want the tone he’s providing.

      • mattinacan

        i doubt it, it was awful. although it wasn’t really Reynold’s fault.

      • Lionman

        If GL will appear I think they’ll try the John Steward version, which I would really like to see! Idris Elba would be fucking awesome in that role!

  • Frank

    The Avengers gave us some build-up, some breathing room over the course of five movies… but this, Spider-Man and even X-Men feel more like studio-mandated directives to get from A to B as quickly as possible without any attempt at world-building. No thanks.

  • Matt

    In my opinion, they should have announced and planned a Wonder Woman film before the release of “Batman vs. Superman” and deal with Batfleck after Aquaman and Flash – leaning closer to 2018. I agree that they should start releasing at least 2 stand alone films per year, leading up to Justice League. Also, “Man of Steel” had some major tonal inconsistencies so I’m not sure how that’ll play out down the road.

    • Johnnyyounineus

      “Major tonal inconsistencies” WTF????!!

      Do you know what these words mean?

      • Batt Damon

        It means that the grounded character driven scenes in Metropolis didn’t mesh well with the dumb transformers style action and cheesy dialogue.

    • Chad

      Why? Just because Marvel did stand-alone single films first, now DC has to follow exactly the same way? I thought everybody was already bitching because somehow now Justice League is “copying” The Avengers”?

      Justice League will work better the opposed of what Marvel did. Origin stories are boring, and every one is exactly the same. So skip them. No one cares/ Just put the characters up on screen that people already know and skip the “got radiated/thrown into acid/etc etc” that happens to almost EVERY superhero.

      X-Men didn’t start with individual films for each and every team member, and neither does this.

      • mr_teaspoon

        I thought everybody was already bitching because somehow now Justice League is “copying” The Avengers”?

        No, nobody said that ever.

      • Merlin235

        Origin stories are only boring now because there have been so many. WB can follow the opposite of what Marvel did exactly BECAUSE Marvel did it that way. People might be more willing to skip origin stories now. Comic book fans have always been willing, but the other 98% of the population? I’m not so sure. Guardians of the Galaxy might give an indication of how willing people are to go see a team-up movie with characters they’re unfamiliar with.

      • Lex Walker

        To be fair, X-Men has always, always, always been a team first with solo off-shoots second (if ever, for many of them beyond very short-lived series). By contrast, Justice League was made by bringing together a number of popular solo heroes. Your comparison does not compute.

  • Jamesy

    F**k yes! I’m happy with Snyder directing, just keep Goyer away from the screenplay. Bring in some new talent, if Chris Terrio’s script for Supes vs Bats is good, and he’s happy to come back, this could be awesome. I’m happy with Goyer as an idea man, but WB really need to let in some new blood. Hopefully this means Affleck will be taking on solo Batman movies.

    • Matt1

      Couldn’t agree with you more! Everybody blames Snyder for everything wrong with Man of Steel, but the real cancer to these movies is Goyer!! Without somebody like Nolan there to tell him to calm down on the hokey-level, Goyer is a godawful writer! Great ideas, horrible writer.

      • Steve

        I’ll agree that the director always seems to shoulder the blame for every facet of the movie that they aren’t intimately involved in (though as a director, technically it falls under their purview), but I don’t really know if Goyer is to blame here.

        Well, I mean he kind of is… I see Goyer (and Orci and Kurtzman) as people who are probably very capable writers, but also know what is required to get ahead in the industry, which unfortunately means that they are willing to bend to the whims of the studio execs without any fuss. The way I see it: Man of Steel was a movie that had nice cinematography, excellent special effects and all of the talent in the world, but ended up being a hot mess because a bunch of suits got together and said “cut the dialogue, give us more action, and have this fight take place in a Denny’s”

      • Merlin235

        One complaint people had with MOS was Supes killing Zod, and the apparent disregard for the death and chaos of others around him. Those were Snyder driven ideas.

  • Stefan Bonomo

    Ehh, I don’t know what to think. On one hand, I really liked all of Snyder’s previous films (besides Sucker Punch), including Man of Steel. But on the other hand, I’m still skeptical on what type of material he will work with. Considering Superman Vs. Batman is just ‘Justice League 0.5′, I’ll just have to see how that turns out before fully judging this. I also have to see who’s writing it. Cause if it’s Goyer again, then I’ll have some caution. I’d love to see someone else’s take on this.

  • herpderp

    A wonder woman movie would get them a lot of bonus points and I get this strange feeling that they are desperate enough to pull the Green Arrow and Flash TV show characters to the movie-verse to save time on building up this sloppy universe.

    • mike alexander

      If they put the Green Arrow and Flash into the cinematic universe I will eat my orange jumpsuit. I can not see that happening.

      Here’s why I don’t think they need to worry about saving time : because at some stage in the future there’s gonna come a point when people don’t really wanna watch CB movies anymore. When you’re at Avengers 5 and Mark Wahlberg’s playing Tony Stark … it’s foreseeable : everything ebbs and flows, and smarter people than me have been talking about a crash for a while. So they just need to get the damn things out asap.

  • mattinacan

    they should be doing MOS2 and at the same time reboot batman separately with Affleck. Then do a wonder woman and flash movie and a green lantern reboot next. You could introduce Manhunter in MOS2 and have him appear again in WW. You could skip Aquaman for now. THEN do Justice League. I have no faith in this rush job, because it is not being planned carefully, there is no foundation being set for this universe. MOS had a good first hour before it went bad, Snyder could handle it, I did like Watchmen. I don’t know, this stinks all around.

  • MarvelWatch

    With Back-to-back filming confirmed, I’m placing imaginary money on them releasing Justice League as their big holiday film in 2016, and that being directly why they’re not budging BvS from May.

  • YodaRocks

    This has fail written all over it. Who’ll play Flash? That skinny little kid from Arrow TV series? Will Ryan Reynolds return for Green Lantern, that utter failure?

    • greenlantern432

      if they put reynolds in justice league and assuming it does around a billion and is accepted by critics and audiences i could see a green lantern sequel with a better director and script do at least 600 million….

      • Chad

        Oh please. That’s like saying a Hawkeye film would pull 500 mil just because Jeremy Renner was in Avengers.

      • Lex Walker

        That equivalence doesn’t really match considering Hawkeye was never in a failed, panned standalone superhero movie. greenlantern432 is just nuts. It’d be lucky if it got 300-400 million. And come on, if it looked good, I might watch a Hawkeye movie, but yeah, 500 mil for the first one isn’t happening.

  • The Flobbit

  • The Flobbit

    Somewhere Marvel is laughing. What is Marvel’s big strength? Diversity. None of their directors have directed more than two films, whereas DC has got one director and one writer doing everything.

    • scheebles

      Agreed. And Marvel is at least attempting to match talent with their franchises. While IM3 and Thor 2 weren’t really up-to-snuff, their directors were more tailored to their films. Just as Whedon is tailored for a film where he has to rope a million characters and keep track of them. Edgar Wright is tailored to making something silly like an Ant-Man movie be silly in the right way. They understand their properties (which aren’t really any better than DC’s properties) better.

      • The Flobbit

        I am going to go further and say that DC has the better properties, the more compelling heroes, and the nastier villains. Marvel has Kevin Feige however, which trumps that any day.

      • vpuik

        Agree to disagree. I’ve never really read because of that reason. I have not found any books that would look compelling and interesting enough. Too many silly ones like superman and Martian manhunter or too much of the same hundred bat and super books. Its a battle for my time and money. :)

      • The Flobbit

        You proved yourself rather ignorant of the matter in ONE sentence. For DC’s quality, try reading All-Star Superman, Whatever Happened to the World of Tomorrow, Red Son, Superman: Apocalypse, Batman: Year One, The Dark Knight Returns, Son of the Demon, Batman: Christmas Carol, Hush, The Killing Joke, The Long Halloween, Black and White, and so many more.

        DC > Marvel. Every time.

        I’m a big comic guy but I never really caught the superhero bug partly because of things like that, check out Invincible (under Image) tho, it’s an *amazing* superhero book, starts of kinda slow but by issue 15 or so things really get rolling :D

      • ʝoe ßloggs

        Better properties? Disagree.
        Compelling? Possibly but very arguable point.
        Nastier villains? Absolutely.

      • Amanda

        I’d say it’s not that they have more compelling heroes it’s that they have more memorable heroes because of better overall marketing. Marvel has the more compelling heroes, in that they have all these characters with unique backgrounds, and their stories are usually better to draw you in.
        Iron Man (alcoholic, funny, billionaire turns a leaf because of being kidnapped) over Batman (serious, alcoholic, who didn’t really change imo) any day, and Captain America (brave guy who wants and becomes a protector of his country/earth) over Green Lantern (party guy who becomes whatever by chance). Thor is on par with Superman in terms of how compelling though, in my opinion.

      • The Flobbit

        I hugely disagree. Iron Man is not compelling, and is only remotely interesting because he is played by Robert Downey Jr. aka the most charming, awesome guy alive. Take him away, and you are left with a character who has all the depth of a metal suit.

        Batman is the most complex, compelling superhero ever written. If you doubt this, read The Killing Joke, The Dark Knight Returns, The Long Halloween, Batman: Noel, or Batman: Black and White, or heck, watch Burton or Nolan’s films. And Batman isn’t alcoholic.

        Captain America is the best thing Marvel’s got. In fact, it’s one of the reasons I like them so much. Evans gives so much authority and gravitas to the character. And Green Lantern was butchered by the studio. He’s a great character.

        Thor is a big dumb oaf who nobody knows what to make of. Neither does the studio. In fact, without Loki, Thor is nothing. If you think Superman is not compelling, read All-Star Superman or Kingdom Come, or Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow.

        But you know who IS interesting on Marvel’s side? The Hulk. When handled right you get some deep questions about anger and rage.

      • Amanda

        I was thinking in terms of the movies, as I mostly haven’t read any of their comics. Also you’re right batman isn’t an alcoholic that’s completely my bad I was thinking of Iron Man and accidentally wrote that.
        And I feel the same about Iron Man that RDJ brings a lot to the character but I still think that without him he’s still an interesting character, at least from the perspective of the movies. I agree with you about the rest, except I don’t know about Green Lantern I know nothing of him. And I’m not sure about Superman, but maybe you’re right.
        As for the Hulk, I think there are characters that they have that are just as interesting, but I can see why you’d like him. I’m more of a Black Widow and Winter Soldier fan myself though.

      • The Flobbit

        Sure, sure. Movie wise, I still think Batman is the most compelling. But Captain America and the Winter Soldier are my favourites. Loved that movie!

    • ʝoe ßloggs

      I was thinking along the same line, but it’s inconclusive if it’s good or bad.

      On one hand, it’s good because there is continuity in terms of story and character building from MOS-BvS-JL.

      On the other hand, it may all come across as ‘same-same’.

      There is enormous pressure now on BvS to deliver, otherwise it’ll take JL down with it by mere association.

      DC tried diversity – check out Green Lantern! I guess they were too scared after that to try again.

      That’s a fair point. “best to happen to Supes on the big screen since freakin 1981!!!’ Pretty level headed, and as someone who didn’t like MOS, I have to agree with you. MOS != The Fantastic Four.

    I think due to the abundance of comic book movies everyone is forgetting just how lucky we are to be getting a justice league movie at all, Especially in the next 3 years!! I like the idea of filming them back to back because then they wont feel like two seperate movies, Its a different approach to Marvel which I admire. People criticise WB for copying Marvel/ Disney but they are doing it differently, I agree with most everyone with Goyer, Just get someone new, or get Ben and Chris Terrio to overlook the scripts.

  • Royale With Cheese

    Continuity is always the right decision.

    • ʝoe ßloggs

      True. But also true is that you can’t polish a turd.

  • DNAsplitter

    This was something I was waiting to hear after they pushed the MOS film back a year. Financially it makes sense for WB to do this. I mean this is the studio that started the craze of shooting films back to back in order to save money (LOTR, Hobbit, Harry Potter). But why can’t they shoot a Flash movie to be released in 2016 to help give us three films before the Justice League in 2017? I mean a film like the Flash wouldn’t need a large $200M budget. They could keep it closer to $100M and would be fine. Also it would give us a lighter side to their universe as he could bring in some comedic elements like Iron Man.
    Also, I’m fine w Snyder directing as long as he’s got a person giving him a great screenplay, so that would be a no to Goyer unless he wants story credit. If Snyder can make it look like he did with the Watchmen then that would be amazing.

  • Cinamatic

    They always say this crap then all of a sudden something changes.
    Henry and Gina were supposedly dating with rumors she could be the new WW. Not! I guess the marketing people read all the “HELL NO” over the net and a few days later Henry was dating some blond chick. LOL! What a joke.
    A JL movie’s 3rd act would be just like the Avenger’s. 45 minutes of non stop bullshit action.

    Absolutely love Man of Steel. Snyder had the balls to do something different and did it extremely well. It was more like an alien invasion/sci-fi spin and it paid off in spades. I think most people’s problem with it as well as The Dark Knight Rises is that it caught them too much off guard for being so different to expectations. My wife couldn’t stand MOS when it first came out and now she can’t stop watching it.

If Joss Weadon a longtime comicbook fan can make Avengers then I would want a longtime fan like Snyder to direct Justice Leauge! I hope this is good and I hope Goyer is back to write!

    Totes! You know what would be awesome? if the initiation test for the League was you had to snap a super-villain’s neck.

    People should know what they’re getting from a Zack Snyder film by now: action overkill and underdeveloped drama and characters.

    Superman killed in Superman II. Superman has killed in the books before. Next question!

    You’re still hung up over that?
    Dude. Move on.

    You lose two points for your use of ‘Totes’.

    ….nobody asked any questions.

  • mike alexander

    Cute. Next question!


    It’s more of a fact than a question but you might be late on that. Brush up on your Superman.

    Umm…that is EXACTLY what we got with Man of Steel. People like a scapegoat, and the masses have chosen to pick on Goyer in this case, but that does not change the fact that Zack Snyder has A. No idea to shoot action tastefully and in a restrained manner. B. No idea how to tell a story with compelling, subtle characters and emotion.

  • GrimReaper07

    It is 100% what we got. Man of Steel is exactly what I feared and should have expected from Goyer and the guy from Sucker Punch.

  • The Flobbit

    Speak for yourself. I thought the action scenes lacked restraint, taste, and style, and the characters were only given personality by the talented actors who portrayed them.

  • GrimReaper07

    The action scenes were cool… for a while. After an hour of amateur and pointless camera zooms on explosions and giant space robots it got really boring.
