This will be Warner Brothers second attempt at a Justice League film but this time the stars seemed to have aligned. Entertainment Weekly has revealed that Zack Snyder’s Justice League Part 1 starts filming April 11, 2016. This is only mere weeks after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice debuts in theaters everywhere.
Zack Snyder went onto tell EW:
“The idea that we could begin to boot up a Justice League concept was a cool thing. It was a little bit of an ‘about time’ moment, and I don’t blame [the studio] for feeling that way, because it’s a long time coming, But I do feel like it’s a little bit of a creative hurdle. It seems like an easy thing to do at first glance, the idea that, ‘Oh, we just get the rest of the superheroes in there.’ But you have to [establish] a world where they can exist.”
It was long speculated that Justice League Part 1 and 2 would be filming back-to-back (The Avengers: Infinity War’s are going to) but back last November producer Charles Roven confirmed to Collider that both will be two completely separate productions.
So far the film will star Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash and Ray Fisher as Cyborg. Green Lantern has been rumored but never confirmed to appear in the first film. Black Canary and Mera have also been rumored to appear.
