Updated: Zack Snyder officially locked to direct Justice League!

Apr. 27, 2014by:

UPDATE: Apparently, Snyder will shoot BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN and JUSTICE LEAGE back-to-back, meaning we may well see the full-team sooner than later.

Well, this shouldn't be that surprising, but at least it's official. Zack Snyder is now confirmed to direct JUSTICE LEAGUE after the BATMAN VS SUPERMAN, which is set to begin production next month, keeping the filmmaker "in house" to help build the DC Cinematic Universe. Warner Bros. president of worldwide production Greg Silverman, speaking to WSJ, confirmed the news, saying:

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

Stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Gal Gadot are all expected to return for JUSTICE LEAGUE, respectively, as Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. A script is "still in development and Warner has not set a release date" and it's said the movie is unlikely to be released before 2018. Although Silverman declined comment on what other superheroes would be joining the team, the recent news of Ray Fisher being cast as Cyborg and rumors of Jason Mamoa taking on a role (my money is on Aquaman) suggest that it's just a matter of time before more announcements are made. Also, don't forget that we have Dwayne Johnson clinging to a DC role, which he has yet to divulge (Martian Manhunter? Lobo? Shazam? Black Adam?).

It was also said that although no spinoff films with Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman planned, the studio is "warm to the idea."

“That is our hope,” said Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing. “With the right script, that could be viable. The world is ready for her.”

Some whopping news in terms of DC finally pulling it all together and definitely shows an initiative to compete with Marvel, the current king of the superhero movies. Could this put DC on the rails to championing the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

I know you guys have an opinion. Let's hear it.

BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN is set for release on May 6, 2016.

Great...

Man of Steel was 2 hours of flaming dog crap. Zach Synder has been in a steady decline since 300. There's not a word in the english language to accurately describe David Goyer's writing skills. This is the "crack" team you get to compete with Whedon and Marvel?? This is Mike Tyson vs an Infant.

One director with a track record of making revolutionary comic book films unlike anything that has come before, and another with a track record of cheesy TV made for the SciFi channel. Tyson vs. an infant indeed.

I think half the reason Ben Affleck was brought on as Batman was to help Snyder with directing the film, without having to pay Affleck as a director. Affleck obviously doesn't want to be in another superhero bomb, especially not at this point in his career where he is beginning to be respected again. I am optimistically hoping this does great.

Pretty sure it's tucked away in Joss Whedon's desk drawer someplace. Maybe if you ask nicely...

I would like to see some other directors on DC Movies in the future, but I am all for Snyder doing Justice League. I just love what he did with Superman, he knows the material and can work with it.

I am really happy that there is movement, but I really hope Wonder Woman will be high on their priority-list!

Zack

He did a great job with how Man of Steel looks. The only criticism I give him is the style of filming the action. It looks "cartoony". However, after watching it, I couldn't help but drool over the idea of Zack directing a Dragonball Z movie. I think that style of action he did would work perfect.

I really do not think it's a good idea to completely hand the franchise over to Snyder. Nothing against him, I think he did awesome work with Man of Steel. I would just like to see some different directors thrown in there like what Marvel has done, to give us a little variation. I hope DC/WB is not rushing to mimic the success that Marvel/Disney has done but I am worried that is what is happening. It seems like they are settling on The Snyder/Goyer team.

Of course they are rushing to mimic the Marvel success. What I love about the marvel movies is we get to see so many different styles of directing for such different characters. Man of Steel was just horrible. Do we really want a bad CGI Justice League movie? That is all this Snyder guy does. CGI everything, including abs and boobs...

Change the Title

I'm not surprised, I don't hate Snyder at all and I loved Man of Steel, but can we please start a campaign immediately demanding they rename it instead of the stupid BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN? Seriously, after titles like THE DARK KNIGHT and MAN OF STEEL they dumbing it down to sound like ALIEN VS. PREDATOR or FREDDY VS. JASON? The last title that was this literal and dumbed down was BATMAN & ROBIN, are we going there again?

I can't begin to even come close to understanding the DC hate on here by DC (supposed) fans. I am a MARVEL FAN to the core and when I herard AVENGERS was being made, I was estatic, but to tell you the truth, even as a MARVEL NUT, I have to admit that the JUSTICE LEAGUE is a bigger deal than AVENGERS will ever be, for the simple fact that, it consists of DC'S Best Hero's. THE AVENGERS are great, but they can't include heroes like SPIDERMAN or WOLVERINE because of copyright issues, where as DC

THE AVENGERS are great, but they can't include heroes like SPIDERMAN or WOLVERINE because of copyright issues, where as DC owns all of their Hero's. It's just fact. And Zach Snyder has made THE WATCHMEN, which in my opinion is one of the best comic book movies ever, period. i'm not going to lie and say I read the source material, because I didn't, but the film is just such a great film, and if you are a true comic fan and say otherwise, you need to get yourself checked into a hospital, cause there's something wrong with you.

How can you possibly say that Watchmen is the greatest comic book movie of all time if you've never read the comic it was adapted from? For all you know, Snyder did a terrible job adapting the source material (spoiler alert: he did. I don't understand how you can do a shot for shot adaptation using the comic book as a storyboard and still get the film so completely wrong in tone).

Anyway, to your original point - no one is hating on the idea of a live action Justice League movie, we're

Anyway, to your original point - no one is hating on the idea of a live action Justice League movie, we're hating on the idea of one helmed by Zack "What Does Subtle Mean?" Snyder. The man is a good visual director, I'll give him that, but he is completely oblivious when it comes to things like story, character development, tone, theme, and all the other things that go into a good story. He totally botched Superman's character in Man of Steel - yes, there was a lot of cool action (some would argue too much), but he showed a complete lack of understanding of the kind of person Superman actually is. And we're all worried that Justice League is going to have the same problem.

There should be more fans like you Jeff Knite, on both sides!

And I totally disagree with CMontyLoveMovies. How was the tone of the Watchmen movie "completely wrong"?
And Snyder helped Superman evolve and made him more interesting for a new audience. You see in interviews that he actually knows the character and his history a lot more than some Superman-"fans" who mostly just have a special version in mind they grew up with, which is mostly the Donner version.

I never said it was the greatest comic book movie of all time. I said I'm judging it as a straight up film, not an adaptation, so on that point you are right because I've seen comic book movies where I thought to myself, if I didn't know the source material, this would be a cool movie, but I do, so it sucks, IRON MAN 3, case in point. But to say that Syder doesn't know things like story, character development, tone, theme, and all the other things that go into a good story, than you're crazy

I don't get why they're giving this franchise completely to Snyder, since Man of Steel wasn't a critical success and it wasn't a commercial success (including the obscenely expensive advertising campaign, it cost 400 million, it made 668 million and the rule of thumb is that a movie has to make double what it cost for the studio to break even - since movie theaters take a serious part of the cut).

So they really want a whole franchise of movies like that? Hey, it's their money and

Oh man

I mean i'm a fan of Snyder but this is not going to go as well as they are desperately hoping it will. DC's main problem is that their characters aren't relatable (gods among men) so having almost no solo movie to get ppl to care about them will be a detriment. Filming these movies back to back is moronic.

Eh...

I don't hate Snyder. He's done some great work, and even when he's bad, he's still still better than some other directors that could be brought in. He did an adequate job on Man of Steel, and I think a lot of the complaints with the movie had more to do with the story Goyer and DC put together, rather than the way he directed it. I think I'd really have to see how he fares with balancing Batman and Superman together, before I decide how he'd do with even more characters.

Screw the haters, I have never been more excited in my life. I loved MOS and have faith in Zack Snyder. I also have faith in Affleck as Batman and Chris Terrio as screen writer. I don't understand this having a plan thing. They absolutely do not need to follow Marvel and filming 2 movies back to back with one leading to the other sounds like a great plan to me. It sounds like an epic and if done correctly, it could be great. I understand the die hard Superman fans getting upset that they didn't

I understand the die hard Superman fans getting upset that they didn't have a sequel that focuses on just him, but seriously there have been countless solo Superman movies, shows and cartoons over the years and it is time for something different. Classic Superman and his supporting characters just does not work as well in 2014 as they once did. The best Superman stories of modern times are more epic in nature and usually deals with his ideology being challenged and how he affects the world and the other heroes in it. Classic Clark Kent changing in a phone booth, saving cats in trees, etc. does not work in this current era of superhero movies. I absolutely love Superman the character, but this can be a breath of fresh air.

Agreed. Superman has never been my favorite character. Too clean cut, infallible.... often boring. These days people are wanting grittier, sometimes darker takes on their heroes. I'm personally sick and tired of seeing downtown cities getting completely demolished, so the ending of MoS did nothing for me, but I really enjoyed the rest of the movie and the way the character was approached. Plus, if someone isnt happy with THIS version of Superman, theres plenty of other material that they

Does no one else wants to direct a DC film except Snyder?

Seriously, this might be good news for Zach Snyder fan but that's a lot of faith put on the director of a film that's at 56% on the Tomato meter and is equally as divisive among the fans. If Man of Steel 2 (if we can still call it that) is as divisive as the first film, the Justice League movie could turn into a massive failure.

I think it's divided only because the people who didn't like it have only seen superman in the Christopher Reeve movies, then they see Snyders version and go well that's not Superman, but really it was, especially for anyone who's read the new52 and they are going for that look, these two movies are going to be Justice League Origins, and will split when Darkseid first appears (Momoa)

DC confusion

Snyders decision in Man of Steel to destroy the city shows the absolute lack of focus on what happens next(not needed, did not enhance the movie). The Superman/Batman comic series(outside of the trip to the 31st century) looks to have been received very well from the fans. What I think has caused a lot of pause in the excitement, are the casting decisions. I do not care if Gadot was in the Israeli army (as is everyone in Israel) 90 lb Wonder Woman is tough to accept without getting too campy.

Affleck as Director OK, as leading man, filling Bale's take on Batman, his one note acting is going to be tested. Cavill was spot on. I wonder how many of the guys in the room today will still be there by the time this comes out, who no longer have to live with these decisions.

Hahahaha How does this show DC is finally pulling it together? They haven't even written it. They've taken a shortcut to the pay off film, where as marvel introduced characters in their own films and they teamed up in the avengers. If we hadn't seen characters individual struggles and such, avengers would have had to take the time to tell us that. That is the theoretical problem with all the overstuffed comic book films. What initiative does DC have other than money when they go straight

What initiative does DC have other than money when they go straight for the big team up movie. And I really liked superman , and the Affleck casting to begin with. But they are rushing stuff. There is no DC film universe (well, unless they include and mention GL), there's just a big trilogy. I fully expect B v S to be a stuffed film, not to mention confuse a lot of ppl ab batman. They should have made a solo bat flick to explain bale/Affleck differences. Or at least got creative and made some sort of short film or viral or anything the new Spider-Man is doing with their "daily bugle" or that TDK did. And a supes sequel. And intros to the other main characters. To seriously ask your last question is just ridiculous. No. There's no way, even if it's a great film bc DC doesn't have a film universe. I could go on but I won't

I gotta say, when I hear the now overused complaint that "They should do it like the MCU", it just screams to me that you are a Marvel comic superfan, and not really an actual critic of movies. Even if the DC Universe fails, no one in their right mind at DC/WB should want to copy exactly what their competition is doing. Thats just bad business. And who really wants that anyway? I would prefer a new and fresh way of doing things. DC was making great movies with their characters light years

And for those who say that they are copying by jumping to Justice League, keep in mind that people have wanted a JL movie for a very long time, well before The Avengers. We are lucky enough to be living in a time that is very supportive of comic book films, and we are getting some great ones from all studios, and whether or not it works, DC has the talent and the material to put out great movies.

1/5 movies he makes is good...

So if Batman vs Superman sucks, Justice League should be good. Snyder is just over rated by douchbags who only saw 300 and Watchmen (his only good ones, that were only good because of his style). Man of Steel, Sucker Punch and the rest of his movies sucked.

Yea, I can understand if someone doesnt like Snyder's style, but he is definitely not overrated by "douchbags?" (I think you missed an 'e' in there) who ONLY saw 300 and Watchmen.

Yea, I can understand if someone doesnt like Snyder's style, but he is definitely not overrated by "douchbags?" (I think you missed an 'e' in there) who ONLY saw 300 and Watchmen.

Awesome

I love Snyder, I love MAN OF STEEL, and I love Comic Book films, so it's a win win win, for me. I also love a good plan, and now that it seems like DC had one all along, that put's me at ease, even if I'm not completely satisfied with their casting decisions as I was with MARVEL'S. Anyway, I will end this comment with a quote from one of DC'S most (If not the most) prestigious Villains: "It's all.. part.. of the plan!"

Right, because Marvels plans pretty much stay perfect. Where was Hawkeye in The Winter Soldier again? Are we on our third Hulk in 10 years now?

@ themoderntimeskid, What a bizarre argument. You're using the fact that Hawkeye wasn't in The Winter Soldier as "proof" that things haven't gone according to plan for them? What? They made a conscious decision not to include Hawkeye, because they already wanted to include Black Widow. Having Hawkeye tag along would've been ridiculously redundant and distracting. I don't know about you, but I didn't hear a single person walk out of the theaters asking themselves: "Where the heck was Hawkeye?"

As for the Hulk, same thing. The fact that there's only 3 movies with the Hulk in it means things aren't working out for Marvel? Maybe you could use the fact that they had to recast the character, but even that's a stretch because of how many factors played into that decision. Everything else you said is just...bizarre.

Hawkeye has been pretty integral in Shield in just about every MCU movie so far. The Winter Soldier basically showed the biggest events to date involving Shield, basically leading to its downfall. In The Avengers, no one in the world was more important to Black Widow than Hawkeye. All of a sudden, Shield falls and BW is in the entire film, and Hawkeye isnt even mentioned once. His arrows would have probably come in handy when they were jumping around 3 flying aircraft carriers. So yes,

His arrows would have probably come in handy when they were jumping around 3 flying aircraft carriers. So yes, that is kind of bad planning that could have been solved with a related credits scene or a simple line of dialogue like "Its too bad Hawkeye is on vacation in Fiji instead of here to help us save the world again".

As for the Hulk, yes shit happens and you have to recast from time to time. Ang Lee's Hulk aside, Ed Nortons movie WAS a Marvel Studios film that now seems very disconnected from the rest.

Look, I am a huge MCU fan, they are really making history with how they are doing their films. And its obvious that they have well laid future plans. But this attitude of them having everything laid out perfectly for 15-20 years is ridiculous.

You know... I really liked Man of Steel. Other than the over the top destruction at the end, I thought the movie was great. Really looking forward to Snyder's next two films. I'm hoping Mamoa is Lobo or Martian Manhunter as well.

I have a small glimpse of hope.

Ok so DC Doesn't have a well laid plan. But it is encouraging that Ben Affleck brought his writer from Argo on board. Which tells me they are giving Ben some creative control. But lord knows Snyder+Goyer= Disaster. But they are excellent collaborators when work with the right people.

I don't know...but even the way this came out...doesn't seem cool. I'll be first in line to watch this...no doubt but...just not feeling excited about it. WB could have put this together a long time ago and have so many missed opportunities it's unbelievable. Now it just feels like they're winging it in a desperate attempt to catch Marvel whose last movie just kicked all kinds of a$$. Just imagine if they paid Nolan whatever it took to get the Dark Knight Rises to tie in to all of this?

Man of Steel could have been set while Clark was still finding his way...hence his not being around to help Gotham. For instance, he could have been on Jor El's ship receiving intense training so was of the grid. The events of Arrow's season 1 ending could have been seen in a Daily Planet front cover that someone was holding during Man of Steel. A cameo of Wonder Woman and/or Themyscira could have been included in Man of Steel following the devastation caused by "aliens" with someone saying something along the lines that it's time we reveal ourselves. How hard was it to do stuff like this? All that was needed was WBs to grow a pair and have faith in what they have got.

After the terrible Man of Steel, there is nothing to be excited about. I guess if you are a hardcore fanboy then the fanfare is enough, but I for one want a good movie more than anything. Snyder keeps proving that he is incapable of that. Plus the cast is the typical weird & boring cast we came to expect from WB & DC during the Schumacher era.

Just because the characters have an appearance doesn't mean that they will have extensive roles. These could be introductory cameos for many. You can't throw all of the characters together in Justice League without some explanation about where they came from and the movie would have to be 4 hours long to give background on every character and develop the JL story. So introduce some with cameos in BvS then lead into JL.

And what is the actual releaae date, here it is 2017 and on ign 2018?

Hard not to be skeptical about this...
unlike the MCU where they took individual movies to build their characters and lead up to the Avengers
DC feels like they are rushing it after the success of Man of Steel...suddenly we went from a world with a single superhuman superhero and now there's batman vs superman? No background on batman and how he fits in this DC cinematic universe??? Then throw in WW, Cyborg etc....seems like it's gonna be a gong show!!!

I love the MCU, but if DC did what Marvel is doing with individual movies to an ensemble movie, would you think they would be copying Marvel? How would one deal with this? If You were to watch Star Wars Episode 4, they were an ensemble group of characters. We didn't need an origin story movie for Han, chewee, Kenobi, Luke, Leia, Darth, c-3po, r2. Seeing Batman in this upcoming movie, I would imagine we already know his origin and background. Can't we just look at this like a comic book

Well I believe that is why they are making this movie. Our questions will be answered in this movie.

Don't forget about the Batman solo films

This is great news. I think Zack Snyder is a great 'big visual action' director and with a good script he'll pull out a winner. He's also good with directing a 'team'. I'll put money on Chris Terrio (BatmanVSSuperman 2nd writer) already working on that story/script. With BatmanVSSuperman being delayed, WB isn't rushing anything until they know they've got their ducks in a row. I don't mind waiting another year. BUT for all you people saying, "what about the solo films?" Don't forget

More important

....is who writes - no offense to Goyer but they need someone set a natural progression to the forming of the Justice League. I think its been well established that when Snyder has a good script he's great but when he has a bad script his direction doesn't make it better. He is visual in his style. But I will be interested to see if they take the new 52 stance with this or go the more traditional formation. The New 52 makes more sense with the characters they are bringing it, Cyborg,

I do hopejustice league will help bring a WW movie, though I understand that female superheroes don't exactly have the best track record (Elektra, Catwoman), it's shown by iron man 3 , having a justice league / avengers does help. I guess this also means the next batman will be directed by Affleck? (I'm looking forward to that). I biggest hope is that JL will be a platform for the other heroes to come on the big screen

ZZZaac, Marvel did a terrible job with Hawkeye, not Black Widow. And the only indestructible god among the Justice League is Superman and Wonder Woman (essentially Hulk and Thor). DC has yet to prove they're even capable of handling one franchise other than Batman, so what gives you the impression they have a good grasp on their characters?

Cool that it's finally confirmed...

...but what's with the stubbornness of sticking with Zack Snyder? I'm not going to go into whether he's a talented filmmaker or a hack, but there ARE other directors out there. Why not let Snyder deal with the Superman-centric films, and get someone else who's proven (or has the potential) to direct a blockbuster ensemble film? This would be like Marvel sticking with Jon Favreau for Iron Man, Iron Man 2, AND The Avengers, simply because they had nobody else. How about some fresh blood?

I'm not even going to go into who could be some alternatives, because I'm sure there's plenty of worthy candidates. But that's the point: why limit oneself to Zack Snyder when there's almost unlimited possibilities? I highly doubt WB was thinking this far ahead when they hired Snyder for Man of Steel, so why not branch out a bit?

I think its because they want consistency, for example, look at Aliens, each movie felt different even though they are sequels to each other ditto Terminator. Heck, Jon Favreau's Iron man felt different than Black's Iron Man ditto the Thor movie's

@seansnake, True, but it kind of hurts your argument that there hasn't really been any consensus over whether Watchmen was really all that good of a movie or not.

Besides, the key word in my original comment was someone ELSE with that kind of experience. Even if everyone agreed that Watchmen was an unparalleled success...I'm sure there's other directors out there who've consistently worked with those kinds of movies and thus would be more qualified for the Justice League.

Instead, it seems like they hired Snyder for Man of Steel, realized he just so happened to direct ONE ensemble film before, and decided to just stick with him for Justice League because that's easier. Seems lazy and risk-averse to me.

Your whole argument is contradictive. You're saying, why stick with a guy whose proven himself in two big super hero flicks, Shouldn't you be asking yourself.

Very exciting news! Even though I would have liked to have seen Man of Steel 2 before Justice League happen.

Hopefully DC brings back Reynolds for Green Lantern and keeps the continuity within the DC Universe and makes the character a bit more serious this time around. And I would love for DC to also consider bringing in Amell for Green Arrow. The guy is the perfect Green Arrow and if DC does include him in the film, then they won't have to worry about explains his backstory.

Solo ain't happening for a while

It seems that WB turned Man of Steel into part one of a trilogy. I don't like the direct sequel thing going on here. This isn't promising any spin-offs. Looks more like the studio wants to keep making sequels. Justice League may just lead to JL2. That's what I'm betting.

I like it

Could go sour, could be great, but I like the commitment of using the same director and revealing their future plans finally. Seems like they are gonna go the opposite format than Marvel. BvsS leads into Justice League, which afterwards leads to solo films. Since they obviously don't have issues casting younger, newer talent in key roles, maybe we will be lucky enough to see Stephen Amell as Green Arrow in a movie?

Cool news. I hope Momoa is on board for Martian ManHunter but if it's Arthur Curry, I hope they keep his classic look.

J'onn J'onzz is smooth, classy, and controlled. Momoa is nothing like his character. I'm not sure why that casting would make you excited.

I like it based on the fact that I like Momoa. Additionally, even though he doesn't have any well known roles with the characteristics you described it doesn't mean he's incapable of doing them well.
