Zack Snyder to direct ‘Justice League’ after ‘Batman vs. Superman’ (update)

Warner Bros. president of worldwide production Greg Silverman just confirmed to The Wall Street Journal that the studio has set plans to make a Justice League movie after Batman vs. Superman. Justice League will be directed by Zack Snyder with all the major Batman vs. Superman players returning to reprise their roles.

“It will be a further expansion of this universe,” said Silverman. “Superman vs Batman will lead into Justice League.” It’s interesting that the Warner Bros. president was quoted as calling the movie “Superman vs. Batman”… do we have an official title?

A script is currently being developed and a release date for Justice League has not been announced. Silverman wouldn’t comment on which heroes would join Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Cyborg in the movie.

Update: Latino Review and a writer for The Hollywood Reporter claim that Justice League will be released in 2017 and shoot back-to-back with Batman vs. Superman. Look for an official announcement in July at Comic-Con.
