Disney has scheduled The Avengers 2 to hit theaters May 2015, but they won’t be the only ensemble superhero team saving the world. Warner Brothers feels confident that they will be able to bring in a Justice League movie within the next few years, and has scheduled the highly anticipated film for a Summer 2015 release. That’s right, two superhero teams from opposing comic book companies battling it out to claim the right to be called the best superhero!
Since the film is still very early in development – no director or cast has been announced – there isn’t much to say about the Justice League movie. We do know that Gangster Squad scribe Will Beall is tapped to write the draft for the film.
As to whether or not we will see Zack Snyder‘s Superman, from Man of Steel, will appear in the Justice League film, that remains to be seen. Snyder has long denied that his Superman is a part of WB’s plans for the Justice League, but having two different Supermans leaping tall buildings in a single bound, would be confusing to the audience.
According to The LA Times, the studio expects to meet its target date, albeit it is a tentative one. Still, its good to know that WB has outlined a plan. Considering the length of time it took for Marvel to build its cinematic universe, it’s hard to believe that WB would follow the same path. Instead the studio might take the opposite route and go in reverse, a plan they tried to do a few years back. We will see how all of this plays out within the coming years, and we’ll be sure to keep you up-to-date on any developments.
So DC Comic fans, are you excited that Justice League is finally hitting theaters in two years?
