Definitive Answers On JUSTICE LEAGUE From Zack Snyder

"Do the DC characters exist in the universe I created? The answer is yes," says Man of Steel director Zack Snyder on the subject of a Justice League film. He goes on state, "Now, that being said, does a ‘Justice League’ movie exist now? No."

It's a definitive 'Yes' and 'No.' In all seriousness, Man of Steel director Zack Snyder looks to have a hit on his hands with his reinterpretation of Superman for the modern age. So what's next? That's the million dollar question at the moment before Man of Steel even hits U.S. theaters. To that end, the L.A. Times' Hero Complex blog asked Snyder point-blank about a Justice League film for an upcoming profile on the director. Ahead of that profile, they've posted Snyder's response to that particular question. Said Zack, "Do the DC characters exist in the universe I created? The answer is yes. In my mind, we have this fantastic character of Superman. It’s not madness that there would be others. Now, that being said, does a ‘Justice League’ movie exist now? No. Whether or not I ever get to make that movie, I don’t know. What is real is that there’s a crack — a foot — in the door. That’s promising. The door is definitely open."

Hero Complex also asked the same of Man of Steel producer Christopher Nolan, but he declined to comment on anything beyond Man of Steel. Said Nolan, "What I’ve been hoping for is to be able to take my kids to see a version of this story that is going to fry their imaginations the way the 1978 [‘Superman’] that Dick Donner did for me when I was an 8-year old boy. That’s what I’ve been focused on and that’s my role in things. So anything beyond that, I can’t comment."

Interesting enough, earlier this year Snyder reportedly confirmed that IF Warner Bros. decides to make a Justice League film, he'll be the person they ask to direct it. However a more recent report quotes Snyder as stating the he thinks a Man of Steel sequel should occur first before a Justice League film. It appears that's the case but what other films should occur before Justice League? One more Superman film or should there be solo ventures for other DC characters like Flash, Wonder Woman or Batman?

I don't think Snyder could have phrased it better in regard to this topic. It sums up where things stand perfectly.

Seeing this in live action would be a dream come true

Bring on the DC universe. Thank you Snyder and Nolan.
Tony93 - 6/7/2013, 6:21 PM
Man of Steel sequel should be next along with one other superhero..
Flash or wonderwoman
Highflyer - 6/7/2013, 6:21 PM
I hope that the justice league movie has a great story and avoids any generic storylines.
EdgyOutsider - 6/7/2013, 6:22 PM
DCCU? Sure. Zack Snyder directing Justice League? A terrible idea.
revloveR - 6/7/2013, 6:22 PM
i can wait, so long as we get solo features from the flash, wondy, and perhaps another crack at GL. i really wish they'd stop wasting their [frick]ing time with the jonah hexes, losers, and fables of the world. i don't understand these people. the flash is free money for [frick] sake.
thebatspider - 6/7/2013, 6:23 PM
I think man of steel sequel should go first, then a worlds finest, wonder woman, flash, green lantern reboot, then the justice league.
DCfan89 - 6/7/2013, 6:24 PM
Wonder Woman is a must
Omarvls - 6/7/2013, 6:27 PM

2016
Dr Strange vs Batman reboot
Black Panther vs Flash
2017
Planet Hulk vs MOS 2
Thor 3 vs Wonder Woman

Screw you guys!

JUSTICE LEAGUE 2050!
TheDIsSilent - 6/7/2013, 6:31 PM
No need to bring up Spider-Man in a DC article, Levi. You're just asking for a flame war by saying that.

Then again, it's probably what you want.
Tony93 - 6/7/2013, 6:32 PM
it will happen, and I'll wait patiently, just as long as they take their and do it right
Tony93 - 6/7/2013, 6:32 PM
*time
TheSuperguy - 6/7/2013, 6:33 PM
I want a Man of Steel trilogy and a Flash movie before JL. Also wanna see GL reboot and Wonder Woman movies first. Maybe Batman, if it won't put off the JL movie to a later date.
MrCBM56 - 6/7/2013, 6:34 PM
I predict Justice League summer 2017.

Cannot wait for what the future holds of the DCU! Bring it!!
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 6/7/2013, 6:35 PM
LMAO @SuperCat
exirae - 6/7/2013, 6:37 PM
God no, I don't want to see superman in another movie till 2017. Take 4 years to make a movie you get MOS/TDK etc. take a year and a half and you get Thor/iron man 2/captain America (come to think of it why do people like phase 1?).dont assembly line these movies out. Put some love into them.
dbapz - 6/7/2013, 6:41 PM
I really think that in order for a Justice League movie to work, Superman and Batman need to share the silver screen together first.
BANEofExistence - 6/7/2013, 6:41 PM
2013- Man Of Steel

2015- Man of Steel Sequel
Wonder Woman

2016- The Flash
Aquaman

2017- Justice League(Also Introduce Batman[No origin is needed] and Cyborg OR Jonn Jonzz)

2018-Batman Reboot

2019- Green Lantern whaterver they do... Sequel or reboot
BANEofExistence - 6/7/2013, 6:43 PM
Also, A Superman Batman team up film before a Justice League film would actually work best IMO Show great chemistry between the two and then in the Justice Leauge film, focus on Aquaman, Wonder Woman, The Flash and Cyborg OR Martian Manhunter coming together for a greater threat
beane2099 - 6/7/2013, 6:45 PM
I'm gonna say it: Justice League in 2099. Haw!!
JayJayCAW - 6/7/2013, 6:45 PM
a very honest answer which really is all we have been waiting for :)

Now all DC/WB has to do is start making the solo films and maybe have 2 or 3 of them a year for the next 2-3 years and we can have a Justice League film in 5 :D
GodzillaKart - 6/7/2013, 6:46 PM
Very well said. I would love a JL movie, but I can't wait for Superman and frankly that's enough for now. I have high hopes of finally seeing a Batman portrayed well on the big screen, and Wonder Woman would be great. But if MOS is good, I'm happy.
GeekyCheekyChic - 6/7/2013, 6:47 PM
Technically I would say Superman is the first hero of the DCU because if others existed and didn't show up for an alien invasion....I would rather Supes be the one and only for now. I hope he isn't implying other super beings exist at the same time as the events of this movie because really ? No help ?
beane2099 - 6/7/2013, 6:47 PM
Hopefully sooner than that though. We've known for years that Justice League would make a kick ass movie. But it wasn't until recently that the movie fx technology was up to the challenge.
TheWolverine08 - 6/7/2013, 6:47 PM
Justice League in 2105!
MrMartinMarvel - 6/7/2013, 6:48 PM
@exire I can see somebody doesn't want a Justice League movie.
Hando99 - 6/7/2013, 6:49 PM
they should use the MOS sequel and do a World's Finest, introduce the new Batman in that and cut between Gotham and Metropolis with a storyline with two of their villains which eventually brings them together e.g. Luthor/Metallo and Black Mask/Deadshot leading to Brainiac arriving for Justice League.
MrMartinMarvel - 6/7/2013, 6:49 PM
@TheWolverine08 That's actually a pretty accurate release date.
TheWolverine08 - 6/7/2013, 6:51 PM
@MrMartianMarvel We'll all be dead before a JL movie! LOL!
beane2099 - 6/7/2013, 6:51 PM
Forget Justice League, what about a sequel to Steel starring Shaq???
beane2099 - 6/7/2013, 6:52 PM
G'nort: The movie! Who's with me?
Hando99 - 6/7/2013, 6:53 PM
do Flash and WW solos before JL with a post credit cameos from Cavill in one and new Batman in other asking for help with Brainiac. Use JL to intro Martian Manhunter.
TheDIsSilent - 6/7/2013, 6:54 PM
SUPERSHADOWBAT - 6/7/2013, 6:55 PM
Good answers, they finally broke Snyder! Lol. Seriously though, even if he knew if JL was in the works, I doubt the powers at WB would let him spill the beans yet. We will probably know about JL after the first week or two that MOS is out. We can only hope.
beane2099 - 6/7/2013, 6:55 PM
Blood Pack: The movie. (Does anyone even remember that whole thing?)
LexHairFight - 6/7/2013, 6:56 PM
I can say with 100% certainty, there is a 50% chance of a Justice League movie.

we'll find out at SDCC!
