WIth LESS THAN A MONTH to go before Zack Snyder astounds the world with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Entertainment Weekly has dropped an exclusive bit of info that the long-awaited Justice League movie will begin shooting April 11- weeks after the Batman/Superman brawl opens in theaters world wide.
“The idea that we could begin to boot up a Justice League concept was a cool thing,” says Snyder, who also directed 2013’s Man of Steel and has become one of the key figures in shaping DC’s connected film universe.
“It was a little bit of an ‘about time’ moment, and I don’t blame [the studio] for feeling that way, because it’s a long time coming,” he said. “But I do feel like it’s a little bit of a creative hurdle. It seems like an easy thing to do at first glance, the idea that, ‘Oh, we just get the rest of the superheroes in there.’ But you have to [establish] a world where they can exist.”
Filming is taking place in the U.K. where EW notes that Snyder is already settled in at, ready to start rolling the cameras on WB/DC’s momentous superhero team up film which will star Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyrborg, and ____ as Green Lantern.
This comes more than 8 years after WB’s last attempt to get the mighty Justice League on the big screen in 2007 with Mad Max helmer Gorge Miller and a young cast which would have seen the super-friends tackle Maxwell Lord and the OMAC Project.
We here at the Bible of Zack Snyder take pride in our work and ethics, and do not like to trash talk other sites or “journalist” personalities, but this entire announcement completely breaks down a string of bad-press WB have gotten from “insider sources” claiming that Snyder’s BvS isn’t testing well, and that the Justice League film and Snyder’s position itself were in jeopardy.
