‘The Batman’ Pushes ‘Justice League 2’ Release Date Back; Zack Snyder Finally Making ‘The Last Photograph’
The DCEU returns next year with the release of Patty Jenkins Wonder Woman and Zack Snyder’s Justice League. After that, the schedule for most of Warner Bros upcoming DC Comics projects are in a state of flux.
The Flash is currently without a director, Ben Affleck’s The Batman script is still being worked on. James Wan’s Aquaman is the only film on the slate that seems to be going ahead swimmingly.
Now comes news from THR that Snyder’s Justice League 2 is being pushed back by Warner Bros for Affleck’s solo Batman movie. The site reports Snyder is still on-board to direct Justice League 2, just not as soon as previously thought.
Originally, the plan was for Snyder to immediately go into production on Justice League 2. Instead he’s moving on to a long-term project of his, in war thriller The Last Photograph.
“The Last Photography centres around a war correspondent in Afghanistan who is the only one to survive an attack on a group of Americans. When a special ops soldier in search of a family member shows up, the two team up, with the correspondent hoping to score the story of his life.”
The report from THR never indicated a release date for Affleck’s The Batman but with the Justice League being moved back on Warner’s release slate, it’s starting to give a clear indication it will be in late 2018, early 2019.
