Warner Bros. has already assembled most of its Justice League. We’ve got Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ezra Miller as the Flash, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg. But the seventh member of the team has remained a big fat question mark. At this point, despite the fact that Green Lantern Corps already has a 2020 release date locked in, we don’t even know which Green Lantern(s) will eventually suit up, much less who’ll play him (or them).
And it may that stay for a while. Although many had hoped we’d get our first look at a Green Lantern in 2017’s Justice League: Part One or even this spring’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Warner Bros. says we won’t meet him until 2019’s Justice League: Part Two — or possibly even later.

For any DC Comics fan out there who has been desperate to see Justice League on the big screen for awhile now, you probably know that Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller tried to get the superhero ensemble off the ground years ago. The film would have featured Armie Hammer as Batman, Common as Green Lantern, and Adam Brody as the Flash, and a documentary will soon reveal more about it. Sadly, the project stalled because of the Writer’s Guild strike at the time, and it never recovered.
However, a new tip seems to indicate that George Miller may get a chance at helping bring Justice League to theaters after all. Plus, find out what kind of box office numbers we can expect from the opening weekend for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and whether or not it’ll be the success that Warner Bros. Pictures hopes that it will be. Read More »

This week, it was revealed that Justice League will begin filming on April 11, 2016, which is a big, huge, crazy deal for two reasons. First of all, it’s a major step forward for the DC movie universe and will represent the first time this iconic superhero team has appeared in live action on the big screen. But more importantly, it represents Warner Bros.’ commitment to their plan and their faith in director Zack Snyder. Since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens a little over two weeks before cameras roll on Justice League, they’re doubling down on him being the chief architect of their new movie universe. No matter what happens, it’s all steam ahead at this point.
To drive this point home, Snyder tweeted a picture from straight from the film’s set. Or rather, straight from Warner Bros. studios in Leavesden, England, where a whole bunch of technicians and artists are deep in pre-production . Although the chief subjects of the photo are the director and Jason Momoa, a.k.a. Aquaman, the real objects of interest are linger in the background.

George Miller is a fascinating man.
Decades before directing one of the best movies of 2015 and earning an Oscar nomination for his efforts, he was a doctor working in Sydney, Australia who practically stumbled into filmmaking with the original Mad Max. Between now and then, he’s written, produced and directed mainstream successes and cult favorites alike, experimenting in various mediums and never settling on a single genre. And in a new interview, he opens up about his life and career in a big way, talking about Mad Max: Fury Road and Babe and his canceled Justice League movie and his relationship with Stanley Kubrick and so much more.

Zack Snyder is basically the God of the DC Comic movies right now. With Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he’s not only setting up the two titular characters for future films, but also Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and maybe more. What he did with these heroes in the upcoming superhero pic will, most likely, heavily influence what Warner Bros. does going forward.
What does former Batman director Christopher Nolan think about the new direction Snyder is taking Bruce Wayne in, though? Does he miss the character at all?
