'Justice League' movie to follow 'Batman/Superman' in 2018

Warner Bros. says it is going to try again to create a big-screen version of Justice League, the long-demanded, occasionally attempted team-up between Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and other iconic DC superheroes.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, the studio’s production president Greg Silverman confirmed that Zack Snyder would follow-up his 2016 Batman/Superman movie with this one, delivering Justice League to theaters sometime in 2018.

So sad that I don't feel excited for this.

That's if the MoS follow-up is a hit. If it underperforms or just flat out bombs, I don't see Warner Bros. going through with it. They also said that Green Lantern was supposed to be a franchise as well, but those plans went out the window once the box office returns was less than they expected.

Thank you for closing that thread, btdubs.

Ben will do the role well imo. Being Batman isn't hard, anyone can do that... it's being Bruce Wayne where you have to pull it off, but Ben has all the suave and classy style to do the original comic book Bruce Wayne justice.

I still think Michael Keaton was just awesome. He had that dark side to him.

I was hoping they were going to do it with this movie and get it over with =P

On the one hand I'm sort of interested in what Ben Affleck would do with the Batman, on the other hand I really really have come to dislike Zack Snider's films with the exception of 300 (it's sequel was just okay).

That will be a while from now. One thing I have noticed about DC's films with real actors is that they seem less organized than Marvel's. I hope that changes.

Hopefully people like BM/SM.

I was just about to post that here, beaten to the punch :P

Well it's so far out that I'll reserve opinions about it for now. Just hope it's good.

They are shooting both films back to back.

Great. That still leaves the recent Green Lantern film. There has not been any conformation of Ryan Reynolds being recast as Hal Jordan. Nolan's version of Batman is less fantastical than the comic, cartoon, or video game versions of Batman. I have and other people will have questions about the Batman/Superman and Justice League film regarding those two facts. I question whether Reynolds will return as Green Lantern in Justice League or is there going to be a new Hal Jordan; or another GL altogether?

They will probably get Reynolds back in, he is still capable of doing the character and he would be interested.

Zack Snyder is a good choice for director, because his work with Watchmen was incredible and demonstrated that he's good at directing ensemble films.

Well considering I don't see BMvs.SM making more than $150 million at the domestic box office I'm not sure this is really a good idea. It seems to me that DC is rushing into full blown group movies to quickly. Marvel took their time and fleshed out their characters before throwing them together. That seems to be the best way to make large crowded films like that to work.

Man of Steel made nearly twice that at the domestic box office. That tells me people would like to see more Superman and considering the success of the Nolan Batman trilogy more DC superheroes on film in general. GL was certainly not as good or successful as those films, yet there is definitely a future for DC live action films.

Yes but considering Captain America 3 is released the exact same day as BvS I have a pretty good feeling that if people have to choose they will choose Cap 3 over BvS which will negatively effect it's domestic performance. Not to mention a lot of people did see Man of Steel but very few people were satisfied. Which could also hurt it's box office performance.

I agree with you about Ben Affleck. In fact, I talk about why he's a good choice in the following video. When you click on it, it will begin at the point I start talking about him.

I disagree. People will be over Captain by then, and everyone wants to see the Dark Knight against the Last Son of Krypton.

We shall see. With Age of Ultron and various other Marvel releases Marvel profits will only continue to grow.

I don't doubt that. Even though I was worried a few years back, Disney acquiring Marvel was the best thing to happen to them, but there is always a limit to where you can push things. Marvel is "over-saturating" the movie scene with superhero movies. I've seen people that like comics even say it's getting a bit too much or too often. I don't think Marvel should go past a 3rd Avengers movie if that.

But something like Batman and Superman, two iconic characters that everyone knows (not just comic book fans), will be something totally new. Hopefully they can pull it off and make something more improved than Man of Steel which should have been much better.

The day Captain America 3 will open in theaters is not certain.

Man of Steel is not a good as it could have been, but people really like Superman overall. I forsee it doing well.

Captain America is going to be popular for a while. Comic book writers successfully brought him to modern times. I expect him to make Marvel plenty of money.
