Zack Snyder Confirmed to Direct Both Parts of 'Justice League' Movie

October 15, 2014

Zack Snyder

It's been a big day for DC Comics movie news with Warner Bros. unveiling their release plans through 2020, and announcing that Ezra Miller and Jason Momoa would lead The Flash and Aquaman standalone films respectively in 2018. But amidst the news, there's another interesting tidbit that caught our eye. We already know that Zack Snyder was set to direct Justice League after he finished up with Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, but today's release date plans also revealed something else interesting: Zack Snyder is actually directing a two-part Justice League movie coming in 2017 and 2019. Read on!

We're not just speculating, because this was confirmed in the official press release from Warner Bros. today. One of the films listed in the release was Justice League Part One, directed by Zack Snyder, with added information that Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams would all have roles in the film. And then there's Justice League Part Two listed for 2019 with Zack Snyder listed as director. That means the exploits of Justice League will span two films, which is much different than what we've seen in The Avengers films from Marvel. And that raises some questions.

First off, we're wondering what's going to happen in the Justice League movies that needs to be split over two films. It would be one thing if there was just a Justice League sequel planned, but it's the use of "Part One" and "Part Two" that indicates that this is a single story split over two films. Secondly, how will the individual films in between the Justice League films be configured if they happen in between there. Both The Flash and Aquaman will have their films debut in 2018, so how will their films be effected by the events of the first Justice League? We may know the schedule for these films, but we certainly don't know what's going on when it comes to the content of these films yet. Thoughts?

He's got the style, he's got the vision and he's got my support.

Yeah, and he's also got enough "powder", fucking junkie, always rubbing his nose.

Led zeppelin was probably balls deep in "powder" before they made their magic. I don't condone the use of hard drugs but its hard to argue with results.

Jon Odishaw on Oct 15, 2014


I honestly hope you are right. Dawn of the Dead - great 300 - great action and visuals Watchmen - great action, visuals and story Sucker Punch - dafuq? Man of Steel - story too complicated, action too chaotic, very noisy. I liked it despite it's flaws, lots of people didn't. He needs to bring back some slow motion action, that's where he thrives.

qweqwu on Oct 15, 2014


I agree with all of that, except I loved the action in Man of Steel. I thought it was perfect. I think he refrained from slow mo just to sure the sheer power and speed of kryptonians. I'm sure this one will have some slo mo tho.

And he's got a zoom lens.

TheOct8pus on Oct 15, 2014


I'm biased because I enjoy the zoom lens shot. but seriously dude it happened like three times in the movie.

Jon Odishaw on Oct 15, 2014


I really liked Man of Steel, but (if that's the movie you're referring to) the zooming happened in pretty much every action shot involving flying or spaceships. I kid you not.

TheOct8pus on Oct 15, 2014


I don't recall it that way but like I said, I'm biased, I like the cam zooms.

Jon Odishaw on Oct 15, 2014


That is why I get all the pussies.

Zack Snyder on Oct 15, 2014


shit, even i'd blow you.

Jon Odishaw on Oct 15, 2014


now THAT is a fanboy! LOL

Hell yeah.

Xerxexx on Oct 15, 2014


Still nowhere near as interesting or exciting as Marvel, but hey, they're trying.

davidshaw on Oct 15, 2014


Haha pull your head out of Marvel's ass. Its cleaner and smells better.

Rock n Rollllll on Oct 15, 2014


I'm excited for it!

Rock n Rollllll on Oct 15, 2014


Whatever happened to 4-hour films? I'd totally go see a long-ass Justice League movie. Oh right, money.

OfficialJab on Oct 15, 2014


I would watch the shit out of a four hour justice movie. but its not only about how much more two movies would make over one, but how little a four hour movie would make overall.

Jon Odishaw on Oct 15, 2014


Both parts??? Are they really split it up into two films 3 years apart?

DAVIDPD on Oct 15, 2014


2 years

Sky on Oct 15, 2014


Why are they giving this man such big movies when he is so sub par of a Director!!!

Professor_Bedlam on Oct 15, 2014
