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?
