Earlier today, news broke that Zack Snyder will be directing Justice League after Batman vs. Superman, meaning Warner Bros. is moving full steam ahead with their new DC cinematic universe. The confirmation came straight from WB president of worldwide production Greg Silverman, who claimed that a script is currently in development and that the film may not arrive before 2018.
However, our friends over at Latino Review have sources of their own that claim the film could release even sooner, meaning that Snyder may end up filming both Batman vs. Superman and Justice League back-to-back. They warn that this is only a rumor, but suggest that Justice League could arrive on May 5th, 2017.
This is a bit sooner than Silverman suggested, but it’s certainly not out of the question. For starters, that would be a great place to put the film, since the opening May weekend is the most sought-after release date of the blockbuster season (as evidenced by the current DC/Marvel showdown on May 6, 2016).
Secondly, this puts Justice League‘s release date a year before the possible release of the third Avengers film. It would be smart for WB to avoid their competition’s team-up film completely, making 2017 their year to shine.
Of course, this is all just speculation for now, and it could be some time before we get any official confirmation. We’ll likely hear something at San Diego Comic-Con, but until then, take this news with a Kryptonite-laced grain of salt.
Tell us, would you like to see Justice League arrive in 2017? Or do you feel that Zack Snyder needs more time to get it right? Let us know in the comments below!
