After Warner Bros’. win in the Superman case, the studio is now expected to “accelerate development” of their planned Justice League movie, shooting as early as next year with a 2015 release date in mind - putting it head-to-head with The Avengers 2!..
“Warner hopes to shoot the film next year and release it in the summer of 2015. The studio already has a “Justice League” script in the works. Next it needs to attach a director and then cast the lead roles.”
Yes, we may very well be looking at the ultimate DC/Marvel war when both Justice League and the sequel to The Avengers come our way in 2015. The site also confirm that WB are taking a reverse approach to Marvel when bringing the various characters to the big screen, as apparently the “plan is to spin out other superheroes into their own movies following “Justice League.”. Is that a smart move? Guess we’ll find out. Gangster Squad screenwriter Will Beall is currently working on the Justice League script, so hopefully we will begin hearing some (solid) news on potential directors soon.
