After weeks and months of rumours, The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Zack Snyder will be directing Justice League for Warner Bros.
The reports quotes Warner’s president of worldwide production, Greg Silverman, as confirming Snyder’s appointment, before explaining that, “it will be a further expansion of this universe… Batman vs. Superman will lead into Justice League.”
According to THR reporter, Borys Kit, the two films will also shoot back-to-back, with a view to Justice League opening in cinemas in 2017. An official announcement is expected at Comic-Con.
Meanwhile, The Wall Street Journal‘s report also suggests that the studio is also turning over the idea of a potential Wonder Woman spin-off, depending on how Gal Gadot’s performance is received.
“That is our hope,” confirmed Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing. “With the right script, that could be viable. The world is ready for her.”
Directed by Snyder and co-starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Jesse Eisenberg, Batman vs. Superman will open in the UK on 29 April 2016.
