As we gear up for the launch of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice next month, Warner Bros. is making plans for its onslaught on superheroes on film.
The highly-anticipated Justice League film (part 1) will begin filming on April 11, as learned by EW.com, which comes two weeks after Batman v Superman bows in theaters (March 25).
“The idea that we could begin to boot up a Justice League concept was a cool thing,” director Zack Snyder told EW.
“It was a little bit of an ‘about time’ moment, and I don’t blame [the studio] for feeling that way, because it’s a long time coming,” Snyder said. “But I do feel like it’s a little bit of a creative hurdle. It seems like an easy thing to do at first glance, the idea that, ‘Oh, we just get the rest of the superheroes in there.’ But you have to [establish] a world where they can exist.”
Batman v Superman will introduce integral members of the Justice League, as hinted at by its title: Dawn of Justice. Obviously we’ll have Batman and Superman feuding to start off, and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) is said to have a big role in the film. Other notable yet brief appearances including other Justice League members Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Flash (Ezra Miller), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher).
