Justice League begins shooting April 11th plus Batman V Superman runtime

02.22.2016

It may have been a bit of wait for BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE to hit screens, but it looks like Warner Bros. and DC are not wasting any time getting the rest of the DCU flicks in the can. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that shooting on THE JUSTICE LEAGUE PART ONE will commence on April 11th, which is just a couple of weeks after BATMAN V SUPERMAN hits theaters. While DAWN OF JUSTICE will focus more on Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, THE JUSTICE LEAGUE will open it's scope a little to give the likes of the Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg their due screen time.

Zack Snyder on the JUSTICE LEAGUE film:

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. 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.

In the meantime, we'll have plenty of DCU goodness to gawk at come next month, as AMC Theaters has updated their page with the runtime of BATMAN V SUPERMAN, which comes to 2 hours and 31 minutes. DAWN OF JUSTICE may be packed to the gills as far as world building and content goes, but it looks like it will also have to the length to give the story some . . . justice? Yeah, I said it! Now let's see if Warner Bros. can pull it off!

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE hits theaters on March 25, 2016 while THE JUSTICE LEAGUE PART ONE is scheduled to open on November 17, 2017.

I hope they cancel the Green Lantern Corps movie and bring Green Lantern to TV instead.

I'm looking forward to seeing how this all plays out. I don't get the whole "Marvel vs DC" nonsense. As a fan of the Superhero genre, I want movies like these to be great and succeed.

Not much of a surprise but good all around nonetheless, there's a ton of story that needs to be told. World divided over superman, Batman's origin and his story, build on the relationship between lois and clarke, plus lex, plus wonder woman, plus Aquaman introduction, then bringing it all together for a fitting end. Should be a fast packed 2 1/2 hrs.

Hmm

People bitching about this film, it's just an extreme double standard from hardcore Marvel fanboys (and I LOVE Marvel films). They really want this to fail. Destruction at the end of Man of Steel? OMG IT'S TOO DARK AND SERIOUS. Destruction at the end of Avengers? MASTERPIECE OF THE GENRE. Trailer showing Doomsday? OMG THEY SHOWED TOO MUCH. Age of Ultron trailer showing The Vision? OMG SO EXCITED. All nonsense. I'm very hyped for BVS.

A lot of ppl say it's marvel/DC fans. I'm not a fan of one brand more than the other, as far as material goes. Though as far as movies go, marvel is beating the shit out of DC. But I really liked mos. more so than both avengers films. But this movie isn't fucking rushed with the most popular character of all time shoe horned in bc of mos so so success? The superman sequel has batman in the title. This is way clunky at best

I hate to point them out but Mechakacho and fury159 are the kinds of fan who dismiss any positive news about the DCEU and who cling to anything negative even though it's been disproven and shown as shoddy clickbait journalism.

regardless. I am super hyped for this movie. Don't let me down Zack

It's quite sad...Instead of ignoring the movie, some people want to spread negativity instead and so desperately try to convince other people into dislikeing it too. I just don't get it...

C'mon, you can't just fathom that someone isn't interested in this? I'm not hoping this will suck, for the record, but everything I've seen up to this point I'm not optimistic I'll like it and I wasn't a fan of Man of Steel at all. But hey, if the reviews are good and people dig it, I'll certainly see it. I'd love to see the DCU work, I just disagree with how Warner's is handling it. Cheers for being hyped for it, hope you get what you want.

It's insane how little excitement I have for this

Don't get me wrong, I will be seeing this opening day, but the trailers have not gotten me excited in the slightest. Hopefully the project does well enough to not disrupt WB's plan to create this cinematic universe because I'm very excited about Suicide Squad and Justice League.

Marvel news article = All green and "OMG, Marvel can't do wrong."

DC News Article = Usely mostly red "OMG, DC doesn't know what they are doing."

Can't we just be happy that we are getting movies made from are favorite childhood comics? I don't understand all the hate for DC

Agreed. If the movies suck, then I get it, don't get on board with the DCCU. But let's at least see the movie first before we write off DC/WB as incompetent in trying to build this franchise.

This movie looks epic and it's astonishing that we're only one month away from FINALLY seeing this after the long, anticipated wait.

If none of the footage has convinced you yet that this will be a great film, than I don't know what to tell you.

It is funny that people believe every negative bit and rumor about this movie even when it get's debunked or clarified by other more reliable sources. It's like they want to believe the negative stuff.
The "WB is worried" thing was started by one person (with lot of speculation), then Batman-on-Film clarified his statements and added deeper insight (WB not worried about quality of the movie, but slightly nervous if it will click with the masses), same did Mark Hughes of Forbes who also said

And now this news is another sign that WB still believes in Snyder & BvS, otherwise they wouldn't announce it now...

Uhm they would totally announce it right now to try and burn those rumors out bc they really do have some concerns but are trying to make it seem like they are confident. I think that's a pretty obvious possible strategy. I think the film is prolly decent, but they want force awakens $ and success and it's so expensive and a bit dark they might not make the overhead they need to.

This movie looks incredible

If that last trailer didn't sell you into going, then you have no hope.

Yup, the buzz isn't very good with the early screenings and now coupled with rumors that Warner execs are anxious about the release and concerned about the movie turning a profit. Perhaps Warner Bros will realize it wasn't a good idea to take so many short cuts to attempt to cash in like Marvel. And they're just pushing through full steam ahead regardless of content. Marvel at least seemed concerned with the brand and took their time, making sure they got it right. Not that all Marvel films are

say the weakest Marvel film beats Man of Steel....

I'm not disagreeing with everything you said, but to say the weakest Marvel film beats Man of Steel is simply false. I can name multiple Marvel films that are worse than MoS, including the Thors, Captain America 1, and Ant Man.

Only person hearing Bad buzz was from drew at hitflix and he has already been proven wrong with many things including today's announcement. Mark Hughes at Forbes and Jett at batman on film have both talked to people who have seen it and they all thought it was good.

Difference of opinions, what can I say? I know there's that enjoyed Man of Steel, but I simply didn't. I do like Cavill as Superman and liked what Snyder did with the first hour, but that went completely out the window during the last hour. To each their own, but I simply never had high hopes for Batman Superman. The only thing I dug so far was the Batman sequence that opened the last trailer. Made me just want to see a new Batman movie...

Too bad early screenings are leaving people confused and angry

Word on the street is the early screenings aren't going over well. People are not enjoying this as much as DC was hoping. A lot of rumors about similar complaints people had with The Amazing Spiderman sequel (too much thrown in, no breathing room, style gets old, etc...)

I sincerely hope it's just rumors, because, even if I'm more a 'Marvel guy', I really hope this film is good and a huge success !
Every good and successful Comics Film helps the cause of Comics Films. So hoping for a DC adaptation to fail because you prefer Marvel, or the other way around, is just stupid and counter-productive for the genre we love.

What early screenings are you even talking about? Is the Hitfix story all you're referencing? You're making more conjecture out of that conjecture. And what "people" aren't enjoying this as much as DC hoped? This has not screened for the general public. AT ALL.

I didn't say early screenings but Drew at Hitflix, Mark Hughes at Forbes.com and Jett at Batman-on-film.com have all talked to inside people who have seen it. Drew is the only one who talked to people that didn't like certain parts of the movie.
