Snyder to Direct JUSTICE LEAGUE, More DC Movies Coming

The Wall Street Journal has published an exclusive interview with Warner Bros. president of worldwide production Greg Silverman, who confirmed that Zach Snyder will be directing Justice League after completion of Superman vs. Batman.

Silverman says the title of the sequel to Man of Steel is still tentative.

Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Gal Gadot have all signed multi-picture deals that would include the team-up and solo films. And with Ray Fisher coming on board as Victor Stone/Cyborg, it’s likely he’ll have his own solo picture as well in the future.

Silverman’s comments come on the heels of the news of Fisher’s casting, and beyond confirming that the project is moving forward, he didn’t divulge any details on story or release date. Nor would he confirm what other actors were included outside those playing the DC Trinity.

At the same time, Warner Bros. has several other movies in development besides Justice League, some of them from the Vertigo line of titles, but almost all of them led by male characters: Shazam, Metal Men, 100 Bullets, and Fables. Some of those projects will fall under the New Line Cinema banner led by Toby Emmerich.

But it’s interesting to note that while early reports had Gal Gadot signing a three-picture deal, which would include a Wonder Woman solo outing, the WSJ article quotes worldwide marketing exec Sue Kroll: “That is our hope…With the right script, that could be viable. The world is ready for her.”

Meaning there’s not a solid plan for a Wonder Woman movie. Still.
