It’s all systems go over at Warner Bros. and DC headquarters, with Zack Snyder announcing he’ll begin production on Justice League – Part 1 this April. Scroll down for all the details.
Despite recent reports suggesting Warner Bros. doesn’t have a whole lot of faith in it’s DC Universe or Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s box office chances, this latest bit of news goes some way towards squashing that rumour.
According to director Zack Snyder, Warner Bros. and DC will start shooting Justice League – Part 1 this April, and he will be back calling all the shots from the director’s chair.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, he said the following:
“The idea that we could begin to boot up a Justice League concept was a cool thing. It was a little bit of an ‘about time’ moment, and I don’t blame the studio for feeling that way, because it’s a long time coming,” he said. “But I do feel like it’s a little bit of a creative hurdle. It seems like an easy thing to do at first glance, the idea that, ‘Oh, we just get the rest of the superheroes in there.’ But you have to [establish] a world where they can exist.”
Apparently the ball is set to start rolling on April 11, a mere two weeks after the release of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. That suggests they’re fairly confident in the way that movie has shaped up and won’t be letting audience reactions sway the direction of the narrative – unless they plan on fixing any gripes in that two week period.
Justice League – Part 1 will be the first film in the series to fully feature the likes of Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Ezra Miller’s The Flash and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg, although Snyder has hinted that all of those characters will have a small part to play before the credits roll for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
That movie is set to be released March 25, 2016 while we have to wait a lot longer for Justice League – Part 1 to arrive on November 19, 2017.
