Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Batman - Thomas Wayne - Batman v Superman

Right now Zack Snyder is hard at work on Justice League over in Iceland, where we just got our first look at Amber Heard as Mera, the Queen of Atlantis. The film marks the continuation of the DC Extended Universe that began with Man of Steel and grew with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The latter film allowed Zack Snyder to realize his dream of bringing his take on Frank Miller’s more grizzled version of The Dark Knight to the big screen.
