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

by Jamie Lovett

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.
