Posted April 28, 2014 by Mark-Anthony in Movies

In a Wall Street Journal exclusive, Warner Bros. president of worldwide production Greg Silverman confirms that the studio has plans for a Justice League movie following Batman vs Superman. The Justice League movie will be directed by Zack Snyder and is expected to feature Henry Cavill reprising his role as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Specifically, Silverman had this to say:

“It will be a further expansion of this universe. Superman vs Batman’ will lead into ‘Justice League.”

According to The Wall Street Journal a script for Justice League is still in development and no release date has been set. They do add that it is unlikely that we’ll see the movie prior to 2018.

Anticipation for a Justice League movie is at an all-time high with the recent casting of Ray Fisher as Cyborg in Batman vs Superman; unfortunately fans will have to wait at least another four years to see it. The report also mentions that there are currently no plans for a Wonder Woman solo film, but there is potential. Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing had this to say on Wonder Woman:

“That is our hope. With the right script, that could be viable. The world is ready for her.”

For now, fans can look forward to Batman vs Superman to hit theaters on May 6th, 2016. With filming about the begin in Detroit, we’re likely to be hearing more announcements in the coming weeks.
