After years of speculation, rumors, and scrapped productions, the famous heroes of DC Comics are finally assembling together on the big screen.
On Sunday, Warner Bros. officially confirmed the studio’s plans for a Justice League movie with Man of Steel director Zack Snyder to helm the film for release in 2018. Snyder is currently working on the upcoming Superman/Batman film, set to begin production next month. The studio expects that Henry Cavill (Superman/Clark Kent), Ben Affleck (Batman/Bruce Wayne) and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman/Diana Prince) are likely to reprise their roles for the film after they finish filming of the tentatively titled Superman/Batman.
The news comes less than a day after it was reported that theater actor Ray Fisher had been cast in as Cyborg/Victor Stone in the Superman/Batman movie. Fisher’s role will be a cameo appearance and will lead into in the Justice League film. Currently, there has not been word on who else will join Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Cyborg but it’s expected that the film will also feature Green Lantern, Aquaman and The Flash.
Warner Bros. has to be feeling good about themselves with all the publicity on them the past few days, especially after a report that Disney might be re-considering the release date for Captain America 3, which is slated to release on May 6, 2016-the same date as Superman/Batman.
