Warner Bros. Executive Says Justice League Movie Might Be Closer Than Fans Think 9

Share

We may be closer to seeing the Justice League together on the big screen than fans originally thought.

We know that we’ll be seeing Batman, Superman and Wonder in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016, but Dan Fellman, Warner Bros.’ president of domestic distribution, has hinted that it won’t be long before DC’s trinity grows into a bigger group.

When asked by Entertainment Weekly if Warner Bros. is likely to follow up Batman vs. Superman with a quick sequel that introduces several more of DC’s iconic superheroes, Fellman said “While it hasn’t been officially announced, I think it’s a pretty good bet.”

Following Batman vs. Superman in 2016, we know that Warner Bros. has one more unnamed DC Comics film planned in 2016 and two unnamed DC Comics films planned for 2017. Batman vs. Superman has a fairly long production time, leading some to wonder if they’re filming two films, both featuring the star characters, back-to-back, perhaps so the second could release the following the year. Perhaps one of the 2017 films is Justice League.

Fellman also mentions that some of those nine untitled DC Comics films that Warner Bros. just announced should begin receiving titles by the end of August, so it shouldn’t be long now before we start getting a better look at Warner Bros.’ grand plan.

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice comes to theaters March 25, 2016.

    I hate this hair-splitting nonsense. If your executives do interviews with the Wall Street Journal to talk about a movie on the record, it means it's been announced. Same thing with all Marvel's "exciting" casting "announcements" at Comic Con that everyone already knew and multiple outlets, plus the actors, had confirmed.

    I'm hoping it's Wonder Woman that's filming behind BvS. With Aquaman being introduced in WW and Justice league after that.

    I would have no problem with this. Though, my first choice would be for them to either adapt the current 52 Wonder Woman run or the Wonder Woman animated movie... it would be interesting if DC began to introduce other characters to do several vs. movies. Wonder Woman v. Aquaman would be fun, as would Green Lantern v. Flash.

    Not into the Versus angle, but yes to the idea of team-ups. I said in another thread i'd love to see The Brave and The Bold where we get two characters in a movie.

     Wonder Woman and Aquaman crossover perfectly with the Greek gods connection.

     Flash and Green Lantern, which is in the Finke rumor. They have a great history of comics to pull from.

     Cyborg and Superman. Use Supes to anchor the least known JL member.

     Batman and Robin. Jump straight to Damian so we can have...

     Nightwing and Batgirl. With Red Hood being the go to villian.

    I likes the Batman and Robin *Damian* idea, I have wanted a BatFam movie forever!!

    Afterall, WB/DC held the movie info back during SDCC, while Marvel spilled alot of their beans there, and WB/DC still won the con.

    Again, another sigh. You and your anti-one studio mentality. Nobody is expecting the 'schoop' to be given on a daily basis either. Marvel's advertising>DC advertising, sorry, at least for the movies. DC's tv show advertising, at least for Arrow and Flash, is very good.

    How did I know I'd see you running to Marvels rescue after reading that comment :P You have to realize everything him and you say are opinions. No one will be correct on who won comic con.

    I know that, duh. But i wasnt referring to comic con, if you read my response... and, if you read my response, i praised both studios for different advertising, so you cant say im only praising/defending Marvel

    Batman V. Superman will premiere in March of 2016 and Justice League will be released in August of 2016. It makes perfect sense.

    They're already fliming both films so yeah it makes sense.
