Here’s some interesting news for you on this fine Thursday night. According to Warner Bros. producer Daniel Alter, Zack Snyder’s upcoming Batman vs. Superman is actually going to be the planned Justice League movie. Now, just because Alter is a producer at the very studio this project is housed at doesn’t mean he’s correct, but seeing as he told us that Gal Gadot would be Wonder Woman before she was officially cast, he’s definitely worth listening to.

It’s far from any official confirmation, but when you think about the characters already rumored for casting, embracing the Justice League title makes perfect sense. I mean, we already have Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman confirmed, with Green Lantern and Aquaman heavily rumored to be joining, too. With all that superhero star power, I think it would be silly not to just turn the film into the Justice League movie. Then again, Marvel had separate films for each Avenger before putting them all together. If Warner Bros. were to introduce us to all these new characters at once without giving them their own origin stories first, there might be too much backstory present for one feature film.
Either way, now that we’re into 2014, I think we’ll start hearing a lot more official news on this project, whatever it turns out to be. Rumors are really starting to heat up (see the video below) and it’s just a matter of time now before the studio comes out and tells us exactly what to expect, don’t you think?
Tell us, what do you make of this news? Should Warner Bros. just go ahead and turn Batman vs. Superman into Justice League at this point? Let us know in the comments section below.
