Not to be outdone by the big 'Captain America 3'/Civil War announcement from earlier this week, Warner Bros. dropped some superhero news of their own. They've confirmed their 2017, 2018 and 2019 superhero movies as well as announced some new casting for members of the new Justice League.
We still don't have much of a read on 'Batman Vs. Superman' (or whatever they call it, it's currently listed as 'The Untitled Zack Snyder Super Hero Film') other than it seems to be a super-sized warm up for 'Justice League.' And with Jason Momoa is in talks to join the cast for an unknown role, perhaps it's actually the 'Justice League' movie after all.
When 'The Dark Knight Rises' came out -- even though the film left the door open for a spin-off or sequel -- Christian Bale was consistent in saying that he would only come back if Christopher Nolan was at the helm. And though Warner Brothers is trying to get 'Justice League' going and would love to have him back, Bale has just said he will not be returning to play Batman.
'Man of Steel'-ers beware of potential spoilers ahead...
Amidst all of the Superman hype for Zack Snyder's upcoming reboot, hitting theaters June 14, Warner Bros. unleashed a breathtaking trailer a while back that revealed a Lex Luthor Easter Egg, foreshadowing a possible appearance from the Man of Steel's famed rival down the road. But now it looks like we'll get to see another MAJOR DC character
Poor 'Justice League.' It just can't catch a break. When news broke that Warner Bros. wanted their own version of Marvel's 'The Avengers' to hit the big screen, fans of the DC universe were in hysterics, but the project has been seesawing back and forth between "Yah, we will make it" and "Nah, it's dead." Now, the biggest report we've heard so far, referring of course to Christ
For the past year, there's been one big question surrounding a potential 'Justice League' movie: how do you possibly compete with the likes of 'The Avengers'? Well, it looks like Warner Bros. may finally have a game plan: they want to bring back Christian Bale as Batman. And that's not all.
2015 was looking to be one of the biggest years in cinema history, as the summer was set to hold 'Star Wars - Episode 7,' 'The Avengers 2' and 'Justice League.' Recently there was word that we might not get 'Episode 7' in 2015 and now we're hearing that Warner Brothers has yet to fully commit to 'Justice League,' and the only way it moves forward is if 'Man of Steel' is a hit.
Justice League, assemble! Well, it has... allegedly. While a report came out not too long ago revealing which comic book heroes would be joining the team for its big-screen debut, a new more up-to-date one has come out naming the key players who will go up against 'The Avengers 2' for box office dominance. And one new name has been added into the mix, as well!
'Man of Steel' will feature a post-credits scene cameo from Joseph Gordon-Levitt who will introduce himself as the new Batman! That was the sexy rumor from late-2012 and the explanation for how Warner Bros. would kickstart the 'Justice League' buzz. Unfortunately it's not true.
