Zack Snyder has signed on to direct a movie about the Justice League.
Warner Bros. president of worldwide production Greg Silverman told the Wall Street Journal that the studio is moving forward with Justice League. Man of Steel’s Henry Cavill is expected to reunite with the director to reprise his role as Superman (he’s also returning for the sequel, which goes into production next month). Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot, who play Batman and Wonder Woman, respectively, in the Man of Steel sequel tentatively titled Superman vs. Baman, also are expected to star in Justice League.
“It will be a further expansion of this universe,” Silverman said. “Superman vs. Batman will lead into Justice League.”
A release date has not been set, but sources say it could bow in 2017, a year after Superman vs. Batman, which is set to hit theaters May 6, 2016. The movies will be shot back-to-back. Warner Bros. declined comment on release plans.
