The NY Times has published a new article in which they interviewed Kevin Tsujihara. He's the current CEO of Warner Bros. Entertainment. Late last year, Tsujihara was named the successor to Barry Meyer as CEO and officially took the reins at the beginning of March. In the Times article, Tsujihara reveals that Warner Bros. will soon be announcing a new film series based on a DC Comics property. Brooks Barnes, the author of the piece, follows with an interesting statement regarding Justice League, which you can read in the quote below. I would caution that Barnes' Justice League comment might just be speculation. Though, he could have been privy to that information while interviewing Tsujihara.
As for DC Entertainment, cross-studio collaboration to make better use of its comic book characters appears to have accelerated considerably since Mr. Tsujihara took over, in part because he eliminated some management layers. (He has not named a chief operating officer and did not replace Mr. Rosenblum and Mr. Robinov, choosing instead to divide up their duties and assume some himself.) Two new television shows are coming to the CW and Fox, including one based on the Flash and another on a young Batman, and a film series will be announced in the near future, Mr. Tsujihara said. It is expected to include a “Justice League” movie.

Underscoring his aggressive approach to the DC Comics universe, Mr. Tsujihara and Dan Fellman, Warner’s domestic film distribution chief, recently moved the studio’s untitled Batman-Superman movie — a hotly anticipated follow-up to last year’s “Man of Steel” — to a release date in May 2016 previously claimed by Marvel for one of its own films. It created an industry dust-up, and Marvel retaliated with a date change of its own. But the move sent a blunt message: Warner takes a back seat to no one. - nytimes.com

BATMAN/SUPERMAN - Zack Snyder will direct the film from a screenplay being written by Chris Terrio from a screenplay by David S. Goyer and a story co-created by Goyer and Snyder. Zack Snyder’s Superman/Batman film stars Henry Cavill, reprising his role as Superman/Clark Kent, and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne. The film will also reunite “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Ma Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. Zack Snyder’s untitled Superman/Batman film which will now be arriving in theaters May 6, 2016.

About damn time.

Awesome stuff!

Just read an article on Collider where Goyer say's he'd love to tackle Green Lantern...definitely plans I think, don't think we're too far off WB/DC announcing some stuff

Will "include" Justice League...I assume that means other DC characters are part of that series
JosephKing - 3/29/2014, 1:17 PM
Nothing new. Of course they're planning to make Justice League. The two relevant questions are:

1) When?

2) Will we see some more solo movies before?

If they're not shooting Batman vs. Superman and Justice League back-to-back, I have a strong feeling they're going to do at least a Wonder Woman movie very soon. I hope so.

FINE Mr. Tsujihara :D
MexicanSuperman - 3/29/2014, 1:21 PM
Frick yea! DC is about to get the ball rolling.
ReeferInferno - 3/29/2014, 1:22 PM
You know what would make this news better? If they fired Zack Snyder and David S. Goyer.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 3/29/2014, 1:23 PM
If it is expected to include a JL movie, that is saying that he isn't talking about a JL series movie. So we'll get a new DC character series that will be attached to JL.

Did I understand that correctly?
BatManHeisenberg - 3/29/2014, 1:24 PM
Just tell us soon!!! By comic-con, PLEASE!!
venom0706 - 3/29/2014, 1:24 PM
After witnessing how amazing Captain America: The Winter Soldier was (watched it 2 times), I just couldn't care less about DC anymore. They had to step up their game a looong time ago. I don't know if they can compete with Marvel anymore. Said by a former fan of DC as well.
gamecreatorjj - 3/29/2014, 1:24 PM
For some reason, I don' think Synder will be returning for Justice League.
Mrcool210 - 3/29/2014, 1:25 PM
BOOYAH, we better get aquaman or im gonna break some heads
Omarvls - 3/29/2014, 1:26 PM

BatManHeisenberg - 3/29/2014, 1:27 PM

I can't wait to see what DC/WB has in store for us

It will be AMAZING
BatManHeisenberg - 3/29/2014, 1:29 PM
CA: TWS is your favorite CBM ever? GODDAMNIT GET HERE ALREADY, APRIL 4th!!!
BatManHeisenberg - 3/29/2014, 1:30 PM
I hope they announce it before comic-con.
ProfessorX - 3/29/2014, 1:30 PM
DC is all talk, no action.
BatManHeisenberg - 3/29/2014, 1:30 PM
They can be, ProffesorX. But let's look toward the future, not the past. DCCU here we Go!!
BatManHeisenberg - 3/29/2014, 1:31 PM
I agree with BlackJack.
sameoldthing - 3/29/2014, 1:32 PM
@MrBlackJack
Your not surprised..you already knew this..your bored.
Glad to read JLA film has some news,your comments are annoying.
Piss off already you crybaby.
Omarvls - 3/29/2014, 1:32 PM

@MrBlackJack

Yeah you're probably right
but Comicon for DC/WB will be big time
I would not doubt if they announce a couple of years in advance

2017
Justice League
2018
Wonder Woman
Batman

You can dream right
BlackIceJoe - 3/29/2014, 1:33 PM
A Booster Gold and Blue Beetle team up movie would rock. A Doom Patrol movie would be nice. A Forever People movie would also be great. A Super Young Team movie would be interesting. But who am I kidding it won't be any of those.

If WB wanted to be crazy and nice they would make four movies a year. You could have Martian Manhunter, Flash, Green Lantern & Batman one year. The next Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman & Black Lightning. The next year do Static, Green Arrow, Hawkman & Justice League.

That would work for me. I totally would be willing to pay for four DC movies a year.

Hmmm...
billnye69 - 3/29/2014, 1:34 PM
Announce it like this.

First image of Superman and Batman together. Then have the Batman/Superman logo come in behind them.

Then have the logo transform in the Justice League logo, pull the camera back and have silhouettes form around Superman and Batman.
BatManHeisenberg - 3/29/2014, 1:34 PM
Hey, back off BlackJack. I MEAN IT.
BatManHeisenberg - 3/29/2014, 1:37 PM

Let's not forget that they have had plans for Justice League before and see what happen.
I hope they get their shit together.

Also, after CA:TWS they have to change the date of BATMAN/superman. They just have to.
sameoldthing - 3/29/2014, 1:41 PM
@MrsBlackJack
So your no longer bored?
Your initial comments on this thread were..Oh Hell I Know a All About This,I'm A Know It All.
Now your..This Will Happen & Then This Will Happen..

Guess what?..You don't know Jack!
Omarvls - 3/29/2014, 1:41 PM
I think the fist solo after Justice League SHOULD BE

Wonder Woman
ATrueHero1987 - 3/29/2014, 1:42 PM
Flash or Aquaman movie
charlie2094 - 3/29/2014, 1:42 PM
It does a film series that might "include" a Justice League move. This means than just that one film, very likely at least one other character will get a movie

Hopefully comic-con sheds some light.

Interesting that it says how Marvel has changed it's date. No one reading that? Sounds like BvsS is set for May 2016.

People need to remember, DC is not making their films, Warner Bros is. They're not like Marvel, who only make cbm's, so its only natural that they're not going to be as active. Given Avengers' success, they'll undoubtedly try getting more films out there, but they're a film studio first and foremost

@BlackIceJoe

4 films a year? Warners seems hesistant as it is, no way that ever happens. 2 would be lucky. Audiences would get burnt out real quick, between Marvels films/shows, Spider-Man films, Fox's films and WB/DC's films...
Omarvls - 3/29/2014, 1:44 PM
The only reason BvS should move the date is because they need to make as much money as they possible can and if you have

Cap 3 on the 1st weekend
X-Men Apocalypse 4th weekend
Spider Man 3 on the 6th weekend

They might not
TheGoddamnPeel - 3/29/2014, 1:44 PM
Expectations for ComicCon in July with DC:

1. Superman vs Batman will have an official title (Maybe Man of Tomorrow? Like with Lex)
2. Superman's new costume, Batman and Wonder Woman will be fully revealed in terms of appearance
3. Small teaser for the movie. Something small like Henry Cavil as Clark Kent walking down an alley and seeing a swarm of bats and says 'He's coming...'.
4. Information will be given on low budget films.
5. The Rock will reveal he is playing Black Adam/Aquaman/Lobo/Shazam
6. Arkham Knight will have a new trailer
7. A Suicide Squad game will be confirmed
8. Young Justice Season Three will be teased/New DC cartoon series will begin

Oh DC, my body is ready.
