Breaking news out of Hollywood this evening – Zack Snyder will direct the Justice League movie.
Snyder is currently directing the Man of Steel sequel (known far and wide as Batman vs. Superman), and last week we learned that Cyborg has joined the cast of the film, so this announcement doesn’t come as a huge surprise.
What is telling is that Warner Bros. must like what Snyder is doing to go ahead and sign him for Justice League this far in advance. My nose is twitching, which means something is afoot, and that something (to me) is Batman vs. Superman part one of a three part trilogy of films ala Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.
The Batman vs. Superman movie is set for a May 06, 2016 release date, and if a trilogy of films happens, expect to see Justice League arrive in 2017, and Justice League: Detroit arriving in 2018.
