Zack Snyder Reveals New JUSTICE LEAGUE Details And How The Solo Movies All Connect


Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder talks here about how all of the upcoming DC Extended Universe movies are vital to Justice League and how plans for that superhero ensemble with impact the solo outings. The producers meanwhile tease the studio's grand plan...



Warner Bros. are taking a very different approach to their Cinematic Universe (or "Extended Universe" as they're calling it) than Marvel, with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League introducing the heroes before their origin stories are presumably told in solo outings which are going to follow those movies. It all begins with Batman v Superman next year though. "What we are doing is ground up all the way. It is one giant story," director Zack Snyder explains. "The first thing we had was the Justice League concept. The other movies, in a way, have to support that. That is our Wonder Woman, our Aquaman. They have their own creative concepts that supports them, but they do serve Justice League in the coming together of those heroes."

That won't restrict those in charge of the other heroes too much as the director goes on to explain that the other filmmakers contributing to the DC Extended Universe will have complete creative freedom, albeit with him keeping a very close eye on them. "I want all the other directors of the other films to be able to stretch their legs and do what they want, but at the same time there is a big interconnected universe. I have given everyone amazing access to our story, to me, and what we are doing. All the films have like minded conceptual jumping on points." Snyder wasn't willing to get into specifics, but he did tease what the magazine describes as an "elusive" cameo for Aquaman in Dawn of Justice by promising only that, "You will understand he exists."

Now, many fans have accused Warner Bros. of not having any sort of plan, but the magazine was lucky enough to see a board which maps out how and where the movies take place in the DC Extended Universe and how they all link up to wach other. Producer Deborah Snyder describes that as, "Kind of a timeline of what every movie is, where it is going, and where the films fit in relation to each other." Fellow producer Charles Roven meanwhile went into even further details about how they're ensuring that these movies all exist in the same world while not restricting their directors and writers too much. "We call it the sandbox. It has borders around it, but everybody gets to play in the sandbox. On Suicide Squad, David Ayer has a lot of specific control over his area of the sandbox. Even if he crosses the line a little bit, we see if we can push our boundaries back a little bit." With Justice League set to start shooting next Spring, expect to hear more soon!

RUMOR: 'Mera' Will Be Introduced In The First JUSTICE LEAGUE Movie


Most of us figured this character would play a part in the solo Aquaman movie in 2018, but a new rumor suggests Mera will actually be introduced in Zack Snyder's Justice League - Part 1 to set her up for the King of Atlantis' solo adventure. More past the jump...




There's a good chance Wonder Woman won't be the only prominent female DC character on the Justice League roster, as Heroic Hollywood has heard that Queen of Atlantis and wife of Aquaman, Mera, will also make an appearance in the Zack Snyder-directed superhero ensemble flick. Apparently the feelers are being put out for background on the character in advance of pre-production commencing on the movie this coming January.

Though they seem pretty sure Mera will feature in the film, they don't know if she'll actually suit up as a member of the Justice League or not. In the comics Aquaman and his lady love have what you might call a tumultuous relationship, and have even found themselves on opposing sides on several occasions - so if that carries over to the screen it should make for a very interesting dynamic between the two characters.

Just a rumor for now of course, but what would you think of Mera's inclusion in Justice League? Any casting suggestions? Justice League: Part One will be released on November 17, 2017, while Aquaman will swim into in theaters on July 27, 2018.

Alona Tal And Abbey Lee Eyed For 'Black Canary' Role In JUSTICE LEAGUE And Beyond


It sounds like another DC TV character is going to be getting the big screen treatment in the near future, with two actresses eyed to potentially take on the role of Black Canary in Justice League and then something that sounds an awful lot like Birds of Prey. Read on for details...



According to Latino-Review, Warner Bros. are planning on bringing Black Canary to the big screen in one or both of the upcoming Justice League movies. While it's still early days, Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road) and Alona Tal (Supernatural) are those currently being eyed for the role of the hero who has been played by Caity Lotz and Katie Cassidy in Arrow. The exciting thing here though is that the studio has big plans for the character following Justice League, with the plan apparently to include her in a Birds of Prey movie. If that incorporates characters like Harley Quinn and Batgirl, then it should be amazing, while it's hard not to wonder if this news means we're going to be getting a big screen Green Arrow in the near future too (sorry, Stephen Amell!). What do you guys think?

Possible Plot Synopsis For JUSTICE LEAGUE PART ONE Reveals The Movie's Big Bad


Take this with a very large pinch of salt, but a casting agency has shared a possible plot synopsis for Justice League Part One, and if it's accurate, it reveals who the team of heroes will be squaring off against when they reach the big screen in 2017. Read on for details...



We all know how unreliable casting websites tend to be, and that's why you probably shouldn't pay too much attention to the following plot synopsis from My Entertainment World. Of course, they've been right enough in the past to at least take note of this one, and if this is indeed the approach Warner Bros. are taking to Justice League Part One, it sounds pretty awesome. After all, it's hard to fault the choice of Darkseid as the movie's big bad as he makes more sense than Braniac.
The world's greatest heroes are assembled to form the Justice League, to combat a threat beyond each individual's capabilities. The story involves Darkseid planning the destruction of Earth by blasting it with a ray thatíll move Apokolips into the Earthís place.
It's worth noting of course that this synopsis appears to be based on Will Beall's scrapped Justice League screenplay, but there's absolutely nothing to say that Zack Snyder and Chris Terrio couldn't have used the same general concept, borrowing the idea of Darkseid attacking Earth (something which has happened in more comics than you can possibly count). We'll just have to wait and see, but for the time being, be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!

UPDATE: GREEN LANTERN And The GREEN LANTERN CORPS Confirmed For JUSTICE LEAGUE


During tonight's DC Films special, DC Comics Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns confirmed not only Green Lantern for the Justice League film, but the entire Green Lantern Corps. Not only are Hal Jordan and John Stewart in play but Kyle Rayner, Guy Gardner and Simon Baz as well!



To close out the DC Films special airing on The CW Kevin Smith asked Geoff Johns to reveal a world exclusive, to confirm the seventh member of the Justice League in the DCEU and end the show with a bang. Johns certainly didn't disappoint. "We've been to these cities, we've been underwater, but there's one place we haven't been to: space. But now we are. So the Green Lanterns and the Green Lantern Corps are coming to join the Justice League universe." Kevin Smith followed with, "That's every kids dream, to see all those Justice League characters together, Green Lantern is a big part."

Green Lantern will be joining Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg in the upcoming Justice League. However, he won't be coming alone. Geoff Johns confirmed not just Green Lantern but the entire Green Lantern Corps. The implication of his statement is that Justice League will have more than just one ring wielder. Images of Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner, Kyle Rayner and Simon Baz (sorry Alan Scott fans) were displayed on screen, with Jordan and Stewart definitely being highlighted. This resonates with previous rumors that the Green Lantern Corps movie would focus on both Jordan and Stewart. However, perhaps the other three Lanterns cameo or receive some sort of mention? Prior to the standalone GL film, when the Justice League forms on screen, will they have not one but five Green Lanterns?

Justice League Part One is confirmed for release in 2017. Part Two will follow in 2019. A Green Lantern Corps film has also been confirmed for release in 2020. However, the intergalactic guardians of space are now officially confirmed to make their DCEU debut a full 3 years before their standalone film.

Justice League Movie Officially Starts Filming In April


DC Filmsí Justice League - Part 1 will officially begin production on April 11. Thatís just two weeks after the release of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, with director Zack Snyder returning to helm the superhero team-up.


ďThe idea that we could begin to boot up a Justice League concept was a cool thing,Ē says Snyder. ďIt was a little bit of an Ďabout timeí moment, and I donít blame [the studio] for feeling that way, because itís a long time coming. But I do feel like itís a little bit of a creative hurdle. It seems like an easy thing to do at first glance, the idea that, ĎOh, we just get the rest of the superheroes in there.í But you have to [establish] a world where they can exist.Ē


Justice League will shoot at Warner Bros. Leavesden studios in England and various other spots around London and Iceland.


Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to open the floodgates for both Justice League movies and a slate of solo films for Wonder Woman, the Flash, and others.


ďThe studio really wants us to try and pace it up, as far as ónow we have an idea where weíre going,Ē Snyder says.
Justice League will feature Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jaon Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) joining forces to battle an epic threat that so far remains unnamed.

Michael Wilkinson Talks About Creating The Individual Costumes For The JUSTICE LEAGUE

Batman v Superman costume designer Michael Wilkinson talks about designing the costumes for the individual members of the Justice League, Frank Miller's influence, and upgrading Superman's look...


As Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice draws near and with Justice League: Part One to begin filming shortly after, costume designer Michael Wilkinson finds himself incredibly busy in creating the look for the entire DCEU. For Batman v Superman, only four members of the Justice League have been revealed and each member's costume has received great praise from fans of the DCEU.

In a recent interview with ComicBookResources, Wilkinson spoke about the overall experience of working on Batman v Superman and creating the Dark Knight's iconic suit. "It was a really fun and humbling experience because I grew up watching all the different 'Batman' films," said Wilkinson. "Each time the new 'Batman' film came out, it was like, 'Oh my gosh, I wonder what he's going to look like, how they're going to take it to a whole other level?' So to actually be that guy to be able to contribute what the next Batsuit looks like was pretty mind-blowing. I think we just roll up our sleeves and didn't think about the pressure and just got on with it, working with a very trusting and beloved director that I had already done four other films with, Zack Snyder. So there was a real comfort zone there to really be free and to try something innovative and interesting. Added to that, there was also Wonder Woman in our film, too. So that was a really big moment for me: to be able to create the new look for Wonder Woman."

Unlike Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck) sports not only his normal Batsuit, but his Armored suit as well. And Wilkinson explained why they went with the Frank Miller Dark Knight Returns design. "It was actually, yes. Zack's a huge fan of Frank Miller -- you probably know that because he directed "300," which is another Frank Miller project -- so we looked at that comic book." He then emphasized on the importance of creating a unique version of Batman for the DCEU. "We really looked at how Batman's been drawn over the last 75 years and sort of really thought about how what we wanted to say about Batman, how Batman is a lot burlier and he's a slightly older Batman. He's a guy that doesn't really have to depend on armor, he's physically fit and in huge shape. When he has to fight Superman of course he really has to lift his game, and that's when he puts on his huge iron suit. But yeah, there was a whole other thinking and a lot went into all of these decisions."

With Wonder Woman making her big screen debut in Batman v Superman, WIlkinson wanted to explore the heroine's Greek roots and to make sure it was present in the design of her outfit. "The most important thing for us is that Wonder Woman was taken seriously and that she had a sense of grit and strength when she stood up with these two other men, that she had an equal amount of power," said the designer on the Amazonian's role as a member of the Trinity. "So when we made her, we went back to her warrior roots and her Greek roots and gave her something that mimics the gladiator's armor. It's very practical. It's got strapping and all sorts of gear. It looks very battle-worn. It's beaten up and full of sword scrapes from all the enemies she's been facing over the centuries that she's been with us. So yeah, we just wanted it to feel legitimate and not at all decorative, but grounded. Combining power with grace and majesty was our criteria."

This is Superman's second film in the DCEU and it's only fair that the Man of Steel get an upgrade. Wilkinson went on to explain how Superman's suit was altered for the new film. "Yeah, we wanted to keep playing with that. There's an amazing quotation of Kryptonian that is sort of blended through his suit. We've streamlined a few of the elements. He shows a few new materials. We wanted to keep pushing that to make sure it's as fantastic as it could be."

Justice League: Part One will begin shooting in April and it's only a matter of time until the rest of the superhero team is revealed. Wilkinson confirms that he's designing the costumes for Justice League: Part One and explains the process of designing the individual costumes for each member of the Justice League. "Well, I'm right in the middle of it," said Wilkinson while revealing the film's current production status. "We have camera tests coming up very soon, with the new characters that we're establishing. So it's hugely exciting, overwhelming and just thrilling. So we're really thinking about these new characters, how the power balances between the whole Justice League, what role they all play. How they're all very diverse from each other. They have a different relationship with power, how that's expressed through their costume. A lot of work is going into it."

SPIDER-MAN Star J.K. Simmons To Play 'Commissioner Jim Gordon' In JUSTICE LEAGUE

Well, this is both unexpected and pretty f***ing incredible! Despite rumours that Jim Gordon is dead and buried in the DC Films Universe, it turns out that he'll be played by Whiplash's J.K. Simmons...


Mouse over video for audio


The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Oscar winning actor J.K. Simmons has joined the cast of Justice League as Commisioner Jim Gordon. There goes those theories that he'll reprise the role of J. Jonah Jameson in Marvel's Spider-Man reboot, eh? There obviously aren't any details on what he'll be getting up to in this movie, but it's a safe bet that he'll return down the line to star in The Batman alongside actor/director Ben Affleck.

The latest in a long line of actors to play Gordon, Simmons joins a club which includes names like Pat Hingle (Batman), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Trilogy), and Ben McKenzie (Gotham). In Justice League, he joins a cast which includes Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, and Amy Adams.

This casting is a massive win for Warner Bros., and yet another awesome addition to a pretty incredible cast. Tell us, what do you think about Simmons playing this iconic Batman ally?

Chris Terrio May Not Write JUSTICE LEAGUE PART TWO; PART ONE Will Be Lighter Than BATMAN v SUPERMAN

Batman v Superman writer Chris Terrio reveals that he may not write the screenplay for Justice League Part Two and describes Part One as the culmination of a trilogy which began with Man of Steel.


In a new interview with The Wall Street Journal, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice writer Chris Terrio (Argo) has shed some light on why he said yes to writing Justice League Part One for Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. Confirming that he initially declined the opportunity to work on the movie, it turns out that we have the new Lex Luthor to thank for his return. "I initially thought I wasnít the guy to do Justice League and went off to work on something else. But the first day I went to the set, I saw Jesse [Eisenberg] in a scene with Holly Hunter and I really did feel like I was watching some strange, great performance in an independent film. At that moment, I thought, 'Iím not done with this yet. I want to go back and keep telling the story.'"

As for how that movie differs to Batman v Superman, it turns out that the team-up between all of these heroes will be nowhere near as dark as what's come before. "Batman v Superman is a bit of an Empire Strikes Back or Two Towers or any similar middle film in a trilogy. The middle film tends to be the darkest one. I do think from Man of Steel through Justice League, it is one saga really. I expect Justice League will be tonally not quite as dark as Batman v Superman. From that point of view, I felt compelled to go back and try to lift us and myself into a different tonal place because I think when you write a darker film, sometimes you want to redeem it all a bit." It sounds then like Justice League will actually be the culmination of the story which began in Man of Steel, but where does that leave Part Two? Could Warner Bros. have jumped the gun by making it sound as if we're getting one big story over two movies instead of two individual releases? Either way, Terrio may not be back for that.

"I have written Justice League Part One, but I wonít necessarily write Part Two," he confirms. "This has been the most rigorous intellectual exercise Iíve had in my writing life. For Batman v Superman, I wanted to really dig into everything from ideas about American power to the structure of revenge tragedies to the huge canon of DC Comics to Amazon mythology. For Justice League, I could be reading in the same day about red- and blueshifts in physics, Diodorus of Sicily and his account of the war between Amazons and Atlanteans, or deep-sea biology and what kind of life plausibly might be in the Mariana Trench. If you told me the most rigorous dramaturgical and intellectual product of my life would be superhero movies, I would say you were crazy. But I do think fans deserve that. I felt I owed the fan base all of my body and soul for two years because anything less wouldnít have been appreciating the opportunity I had."

Amber Heard Confirms Justice League Role, Describes Mera's Scaly Costume


In January, The Hollywood Reporter learned that Amber Heard was in negotiations to play Mera ó the love interest of Aquaman (Jason Momoa) ó in the DC Cinematic Universe, and she would make her first appearance in Justice League Part One.
Warner Brothers never officially announced that Heard landed the coveted role, but now the 29-year-old actress has confirmed she got the part and will appear in Justice League as well as the Aquaman solo film.
She's even tried on Mera's costume and provided some tantalizing details. "It's interesting. It's like, half suit of armor, half scales," Heard told Entertainment Tonight. "It's strange... We're in the process of building it now, so it's coming along."

Zack Snyder Teases JUSTICE LEAGUE Title And Reveals Two DC Comics Cities The Movie Will Visit


Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder talks here about the possibility of Justice League getting a different title and sheds some light on what to expect from the movie.




While the two Justice League movies are currently titled Justice League Part One and Justice League Part Two, we've heard comments recenly indicating that they could end up actually being two separate movies. That's something which Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder may have confirmed in a recent chat with Collider when he revealed that they're still thinking over actual titles. "Right now the working title is Justice League. Actually, Iím in that phase where Iíve been drawing logos and Iíve been drawing title treatments and stuff like that to try and figure out what it means, what Justice League is, visually, so weíll see if the name evolves with this visual presentation."

As for how things are currently developing with the movie, Snyder dropped the names of at least two cities Justice League will visit (both of which were to be expected). "The scheduleís close, itís not quite as long, but give or take. We have a more efficient machine in England because we have a big backlot that we built for Gotham and Metropolis, so itíll be easier to photograph than when you have to close down streets. But itís a beautiful backlot." It's interesting that the movie will utilise sets for these two cities instead of real world locations, but it's to be expected seeing as production is taking place in the UK. Where else do you think we'll visit in the upcoming movie? Sound off below.

RUMOR: Atlantis Is the Primary Antagonist In JUSTICE LEAGUE, Not Darkseid

A new rumor has surfaced in regards to the villain of WB's Justice League film. Apparently Batman and Wonder Woman will track down Cyborg, Flash and Aquaman to wage battle with Atlantis, not Darkseid.


Could Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. be using Darkseid and Apokolips as misdirection for the real antagonists of the Justice League film? On El Mayimbe's new YouTube show, the divisive fanboy journalist reveals that he's hearing rumors that Atlantis will attack the surface world in the first Justice League film and will serve as the primary antagonists, not Darkseid and his Parademons. Details are scarce but from what little is revealed, it's possible the film be based on Geoff Johns' 2012 miniseries, Throne of Atlantis.

It Sounds Like Warner Bros. Are Taking JUSTICE LEAGUE In A Very Different Direction To BATMAN v SUPERMAN

The response to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice wasn't what Warner Bros. expected, but based on a new report, both the studio and Zack Snyder will be handing Justice League very differently...


Variety has a fascinating piece up about the future of the DC Films Universe in which they touch on everything from the possibility of Geoff Johns taking on a Kevin Feige like role in Warner Bros. to the way they reacted to the critical and commercial response to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

However, perhaps the most interesting titbit comes when the trade addresses Zack Snyder's plans for Justice League. It sounds as if the plan has always been to take that superhero ensemble in a very different direction to what's come before, and the fact that it will be a "crowd-pleaser" is sure to make those who didn't enjoy Batman v Superman's darker and more serious tone very happy indeed.
As for 'Batman v Superman,' those involved werenít prepared for the critical knives the film received, but they always knew it was going to be a transitional film, bridging the gap between 'Man of Steel' (which was produced with no plan in place to expand the universe) and anything approaching the Avengers/Super Friends mold. But Iím told 'Justice League' will be a crowd-pleaser more suited to Snyderís talents, and that the upcoming two-part event is 'extremely kinetic and visual.' It will be far more straightforward than existential in its handling of superheroes.
While some will no doubt be quick to jump to the conclusion that this shift in tone is a response to the reception Batman v Superman received, it definitely sounds like this is an idea which has been in place for a while now. Tell us, do you guys think that's the right direction to take Justice League in?

Gary Oldman's Advice To J.K. Simmons About Playing Commissioner Gordon In JUSTICE LEAGUE

The Dark Knight trilogy's Gary Oldman shares the advice he'd give to J.K. Simmons about playing Commissioner Gordon. What role do you see Gordon playing in Zack Snyder's Justice League Part One?


Gary Oldman was recently asked by Yahoo about the advice he'd give to J.K. Simmons, who will follow in Oldman's footsteps as the next actor to play Commissioner Gordon in Zack Snyder's Justice League Part One. Said Oldman, "The thing youíve just got to get used to with Gordon is heís a really sound detective, first of all. And heís really incorruptible, which is a kind of wonderful quality to play and sort of, like, true blue. Heís like a Watson, oddly. Heís sort of like Watson to Sherlock, is Gordon to Batman."

At the moment, the DCEU news cycle is still firmly entrenched in the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice circuit, even though Wonder Woman, Justice League Part One and Suicide Squad (reshoots) are all filming right now. As such, little is known about what role Gordon will play in Justice League. Could this actually serves as a small victory for Warner Bros. as they can use the attention currently being given to Dawn of Justice as a means to keep details on thier other projects wrapped in secrecy? So far, there's been lots of conjecture and hearsay about the future of DC Films but nothing in the way of concrete facts.

JUSTICE LEAGUE: J.K. Simmons On Playing 'Commissioner Gordon' And How This Role Differs To 'J. Jonah Jameson'


J.K. Simmons talks here in detail about preparing for the role of Commissioner Jim Gordon in Justice League and weighs in on how this comic book movie role differs to Spider-Man's J. Jonah Jameson.


Casting choices in comic book movies are often very divisive, but that wasn't the case when J.K. Simmons was chosen to take on the role of Commissioner James Gordon in Justice League (and presumably Ben Affleck's Batman movie). Of course, there was inevitably some disappointment over the fact that this means the actor won't be brought back as J. Jonah Jameson in Spider-Man: Homecoming, but it sounds like the actor is fully engrossed in this role based on comments he made during a recent interview with Collider about how he's preparing to play the Gotham City cop.
"Well, to read the comics, yes, absolutely. Iím still a couple of months out from doing that and I have two other films before then, so I havenít gotten started on that. Obviously, a lot of really wonderful actors have played that character previously, and most of them I saw at the time the movies came out, never imagining that I would be doing the same thing. So, I canít say that I donít have some impression of that character in my head thatís based on what I saw, but Iím not planning on going back and watching any of the other films.

Iím just planning on learning as much as I can about him through the comics and getting my feet wet in the first movie, and then hopefully continuing on from there. I take this from my days doing theater. If I was doing a musical, I would never listen to the cast album because I wanted to do my version of something. Iím sure there will be differences and similarities with what Gary Oldman or Pat Hingle have done before, but Iím just going to try to do my take on it and be as informed as I can about the rich history of the Batman universe, going into it."

Talk then turned to the actor's last comic book movie stint as J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy. The two character's certainly share at least one thing in common (a mustache), but that's pretty much where the similarities end, right? "There are easy comparisons to make," he says. "I wasnít a big comic book reading kid, so I did a fair amount of reading when I was playing Jameson, who was very much the comic relief in those movies. Even in the comics, he was a blowhard who was all bark and very rarely bite. My understanding, from what Iíve learned so far about Commissioner Gordon, is that heís the older guy with the mustache who relates with our hero in a certain way. Other than that, itís a vastly different character and much more of a stronger, impactful character in the DC universe." Chances are that Justice League will be just the start of a long run as Jim Gordon for Simmons, and seeing him alongside Ben Affleck's Dark Knight should be a lot of fun!

Willem Dafoe Joins JUSTICE LEAGUE


Willem Dafoe has joined the cast of Zack Snyder's Justice League Part One in a mystery role. However, we do know that he'll be playing a good guy in the film. Will he be an actual superhero?


Willem Dafoe has joined the cast of Zack Snyder's Justice League. To no surprise, details on his character are being kept under wraps. For those thinking he'll play another villain, guess again. THR reports that Dafoe will be playing one of the good guys and that he'll appear in Part One and Part Two. Is he playing a supporting, non-super powered character, like J.K. Simmons' Commissioner Gordon? Or will Dafoe play an actual superhero? He would make a pretty good Martian Manhunter.

Justice League Part One is currently filiming in London. Snyder directs from a script written by Chris Terrio. The movie will be released in the US on November 17, 2017. Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot will all reprise their roles from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as BruceWayne/Batman, Clark Kent/Superman and Diana Price/Wonder Woman, respectively. Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, and Ray Fisher will expand on their cameos as Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg. Amber Heard will also have a co-starring role as Aquaman's traditional love interest, Mera.

J.K. Simmons Reveals The Size Of 'Commissioner Gordon''s Role In JUSTICE LEAGUE And Future BATMAN Movies

Spider-Man alum J.K. Simmons talks here about taking on the role of Commissioner Jim Gordon, revealing how much screentime he'll have in Justice League and future DC Films Universe movies...


One of Justice League's most impressive casting additions to date is no doubt Spider-Man and Whiplash star J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Jim Gordon, but it sounds like he'll only be making a cameo appearance of sorts in the superhero ensemble. Talking in the video below, the actor explained that Batman's closest ally won't be spending a huge amount of time hanging out with the Caped Crusader. "I don't get started on that until June, and my part in the first one is very small. I'm excited to be playing that iconic character in that iconic series."

That's slightly disappointing, but it sounds like Warner Bros. has big plans for the character, no doubt starting with Ben Affleck's The Batman a couple of years from now. "I'm going into a thing that hopefully will be 2, 3, 4, maybe more movies for me, and my part in the first one is really very small," he explained. "But obviously, we know who the guy is. We know his whole backstory, based on the comic book. So, I'm just gonna finish doing my research on that. And probably not watch the other actors who have played the part, because that is kind of intimidating, honestly, and I don't think I would find that to be productive. So, I'll do my take."

Will 'Batman' Ally 'Alfred Pennyworth' Return In JUSTICE LEAGUE? Jeremy Irons Reveals All!


We already know that J.K. Simmons will be making a brief appearance in Justice League as Commissioner Gordon, but will the Dark Knight's loyal butler Alfred also show his face? Hit the jump to find out...


Showbiz 411 has confirmed that Jeremy Irons will return as Batman's loyal butler Alfred in Justice League. The British actor apparently confirmed that he'll reprise the role in a chat with the site after they watched him perform on screen in The Man Who Knew Infinity. Honestly, this was to be expected (where The Dark Knight goes, Alfred surely follows), but it's still great news. Irons' chemistry with Ben Affleck was a highlight of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so reuniting them is essential.

Of course, as he'll be the one assembling the Justice League, Batman is expected to have a leading role in this movie, so it wouldn't actually make much sense if Alfred wasn't there providing him with intel. Just how big his role will be obviously remains to be seen at this point, but be sure to let us know how you feel about the decision to explore more of the Caped Crusader's world in this movie below.

Warner Bros. Ups Ben Affleck To JUSTICE LEAGUE Executive Producer To "Support" Zack Snyder


There's been a shake up behind the scenes of Justice League as Ben Affleck has been upped to executive producer on the movie in order to seemingly help steer the movie in the right direction...


Mouse over video for audio
Deadline reports that Warner Bros. has made a change to what they describe as the "Justice League braintrust" by giving Ben Affleck an executive producer credit. According to the trade, he will "work with director Zack Snyder and screenwriter Chris Terrio behind the scenes to make the film the best it can be." Does this show a lack of confidence in the Batman v Superman helmer's abilities?

That would be jumping to conclusions, but it's clear that Warner Bros. want Affleck to bring to the table the same kind of expert storytelling abilities as he did with the likes of Argo and The Town. However, before you start imagine the actor/director shoving Snyder out of his director's chair, the trade is quick to point out that, "Affleck is doing this to be supportive of Snyder, with whom he worked well on Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice." It seems like they simply want his assistance in figuring out the best approach to getting this world right, something which makes sense considering the fact that he's working with Geoff Johns on a solo Batman movie. Let us know your thoughts on this news below!

J.K. Simmons Is Already Rocking A Mean Moustache For Commissioner Gordon Role In JUSTICE LEAGUE


Spider-Man star J.K. Simmons has been walking around with a pretty mighty beard lately, but the actor is now sporting a classic Jim Gordon look as he prepares to start shooting Justice League this month.


We have some massive breaking news for you tonight on CBM; J.K. Simmons has a moustache! I know this is obviously as huge as Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe or Warner Bros. announcing their DC Films slate, but do try not to crash the site by expressing your excitement below.

Joking aside though, and Simmons really does look like the prefect Commissioner Jim Gordon based on this photo. Earlier this year, the actor was quoted as saying, "I don't get started on that until June, and my part in the first one is very small. I'm excited to be playing that iconic character in that iconic series," so this is definitely for Justice League (up until recently, he was sporting a massive beard).

While it's not immediately apparent in the image below, other photos (which can be found by clicking here) point to the actor having dyed his normally grey hair a light brown/ginger colour, so he's definitely going to end up looking very much like the Commissioner Jim Gordon from the comic books!

Forget The Mustache, J.K. Simmons Got Pretty Jacked For His Commissioner Gordon Role In JUSTICE LEAGUE

Did J.K. Simmons read the recent run from Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo where Commissioner Gordon replaced Bruce Wayne as Batman? Simmons looks like he might be more ripped than Affleck.


Earlier this week, U.S. Marine/actor/celebrity fitness trainer Aaron Williamson posted a few Instagram pics of one his clients working out, Oscar-winner J.K. Simmons (61), who will soon be shooting scenes in Zack Snyder's Justice League. Since his 300 days, Snyder has been infamous for teaming with trainer Gym Jones to produce a cast that arrives on set, looking like a collection of sculpted Greek statues. However, it seems Simmons' work with Williamson will be leaving Jones with very little to do.





An earlier post from Williamson demonstrates the progress Simmons made in just a month. The Whiplash actor definitely doesn't have the striations he's showing off, 6 months later in the most recent post.

On Tuesday morning, something Justice League related will be unveiled by Warner Bros. What exactly that is remains to be seen, but a number of the journalists who visited the London set of the movie last week have taken to social media to confirm a big reveal is on the way. Comic-Con is likely to be all about Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman, so the studio focusing on this release so soon is a surprise.

Of course, they're still in damage control following the mixed reaction to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (many of the bloggers invited to the set hated the movie must have made things awkward), so getting fans back on board before the release of the Ultimate Cut and Suicide Squad does make sense.

So, what exactly will this reveal be? The worst case scenario is a couple of behind the scenes images and some mostly uninteresting on set interviews which hopefully shed at least some light on what we should expect from the story (though it definitely feels a tad too early for that sort of thing, especially as Justice League isn't released until next November). If we're really lucky, we may end up seeing the first official group shot of the team, though the question then of course is whether Superman will be among them. Either way, it will have no doubt been shot by Clay Enos and look downright amazing.

Of course, another possibility is that it's something unrelated like the Wonder Woman trailer which this lot were lucky enough to see early! Time will tell, but you may want to start getting excited now...
