Is Warner Bros. secretly planning on making two DC Comics movies in 2014? A trusted source tells Latino Review that the upcoming WB/DC project that Dwanye “The Rock” Johnson has been teasing is a Justice League movie. They go on to speculate that Batman vs. Superman and Justice League could be shot back-to-back just like The Hobbit films, the Pirates of the Caribbean sequels, and the last two Matrix movies.
Latino Review listed out a couple of reasons why shooting the movies back-to-back would make sense:
- To maximize everyone’s schedules. Ben Affleck is a busy man, Henry Cavill is in-demand, and Johnson is a workaholic. Not to mention Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, and the rest of the unannounced cast are no slouches either.
- Because Batman vs Superman is going to end with an insane cliffhanger/teaser that leads right into Justice League and, like those other back-to-back productions, they want to be able to deliver the second film within a year to strike while the iron is hot. Could this very aggressive approach be how DC intends to pull the rug right out from under rival Marvel Studios? Sure could be.
This could also be why we keep hearing rumors about Nightwing, The Flash, and even Green Lantern. Perhaps Warner Bros. wants to introduce these characters so that audiences are familiar with them in a 2016 follow-up Justice League movie.
This should be taken as a rumor for now, even Latino Review says that this news comes from a “combination of insider information and good old fashioned speculation from folks who’ve been in the game a long, long time.” Judging by the reasons given, it certainly does make sense. Is this awesome, or are you nervous about the thought of Warner Bros. rushing into things? Let me know how you’d feel about this approach in the comments below.
