Big news today! Warner Bros has already started the marketing for Zack Snyder's Justice League, which is already filming in London to make its release in November of 2017. Photographer Clay Enos revealed a photo from the set of the new Batmobile (seen below in full) and a small handful of movie bloggers were invited to visit the set last week. In an unprecedented move, the studio has allowed the bloggers to reveal everything they saw and post many of the quotes from their on-set interviews. Nothing major has been uncovered except that they all seem convinced that Justice League might actually be pretty good, despite the mixed reaction to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice this March. Until we see more, check out the shot.
Some of the best coverage from the set comes from SlashFilm. During one conversation with Zack Snyder, he revealed that he was taken aback by the reactions to Batman v Superman. That negativity pushed him to try something different with Justice League: "I think the nice thing about working on Justice League is that it is an opportunity to really blow the doors off of the scale and the bad guys and team-building and all the stuff that I think I could justify as a big, modern comic book movie, if that makes any sense." Here's a new look at the Batmobile, which looks a bit more sleek than seen before, but similar to Batman v Superman.
An exact plot is still unknown, however IMDb provides this basic synopsis: Earth's greatest heroes are assembled to form the Justice League, to combat a threat beyond each member's capabilities. Zack Snyder is directing Justice League, from a screenplay written by Chris Terrio (Argo, Dawn of Justice). It will feature the DC characters: Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) as well as Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Mera (Amber Heard), with Lois Lane (Amy Adams), Alfred (Jeremy Irons) returning, and Willem Dafoe in an unspecific role, plus J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon. Word is that the villain will indeed be Steppenwolf. And Junkie XL is scoring (instead of Hans Zimmer). Those are the biggest confirmations.
In addition to the set visit coverage on SlashFilm, they also learned that for now they're only making one Justice League movie - instead of Part 1 and Part 2. However, they couldn't get an official confirmation and it seemed more like they were unsure what would happen. Producer Deborah Snyder told them, "we're only ever planning and we are only doing Justice League." Zack added, "it is a complete movie", but countered by saying "hopefully there's some reason to go [on] — the movie doesn't end and you go, 'Okay, well that’s the DC Universe!'" There's also very interesting quotes in their Ben Affleck interview. "This is a step in evolution in that to bring together all of these characters who have had their origins. It’s about multilateralism…"
Warner Bros currently has Zack Snyder's Justice League scheduled for release on November 11th, 2017.
