Well it’s finally official. Zack Snyder has essentially become the Joss Whedon of the DC cinematic universe. The director of Man of Steel and its sequel will return to direct a Justice League live-action feature film. According to sources from The Wall Street Journal, Warner Brothers Production President Greg Silverman has officially confirmed the existence of the movie with the cast of the Man of Steel sequel reprising their roles. Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot and Henry Cavill will lead the way in what has been anticipated for years as a connected DC universe.
This announcement is merely a formality as fans of DC and their recent cinematic features have gotten themselves accustomed to David S. Goyer and Zack Snyder helming these films for Warner Brothers. What this announcement does do however is confirm the existence of a third movie and establish that there is a connected cinematic universe building in DC films. This is a huge step for Warner Brothers as they progress in unifying DC comic’s properties in live-action formatted mediums. Here’s hoping to Stephen Amell’s Arrow and Grant Gustin’s Flash joining Affleck, Cavill and Gadot on the big screen.
