Justice League 2 Pushed Back for Batman, Zack Snyder Still Directing


When the DC Slate was announced back in 2014, it was also announced that Zack Snyder would be directing both Justice League films. Many than assumed that the critical reception for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice would force Warner Bros. to find a replacement director for Justice League 2.

According to The Hollywood Reporter this is not the case, as Zack Snyder is still going to be directing Justice League 2, but that film, which was going to be released on June 14th, 2019 is now being pushed back to allow him to direct a film he’s been working on for years called The Last Photograph.

The Hollywood Reporter also announced that the Ben Affleck Batman film is taking its place, however it hasn’t been confirmed if that means it will be taking the June 14th, 2019 spot. Though there are rumors that the Doug Liman Justice League Dark film Dark Universe, may take the June 14th, 2019 spot.

With all the information we have from Joe Manganiello that pre-production on the film will be occurring sometime within the next few months, its hard to believe that the Batman solo film will not be out until 2019. It does however back up Ben Affleck’s claims that the studio has an idea of when they want to get the film out there but he doesn’t think it will be ready by than.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me

    There’s no way that The Batman movie will arrive in three years from now. If what Joe Manganiello and Jeremy Irons is true, the production will start next spring/summer and it will probably be released in July 2018. The article of Hollywood Reporter never said what was the release date of Justice League 2 and Warner Bros. never officially announced the release date, was a guess by sites, like all the other release dates post-Justice League. My guess is that Justice League 2 was supposed to shoot back to back with the first movie, there was a Part 2 subtitle for the second movie. Maybe originally was supposed to arrive in 2018 but they later decided to give space between the movies and the release is now for 2019. There are three dates for 2018, March 16, July 27 and October 5. We know that Flash is supposed to arrive in March, Aquaman in October and there still an open date for July. The Batman is the only other movie in pre-production in this moment, so is probably that will be release on July 27, 2018. Zack Snyder is a smart genius, a visual master who made cinematic masterpieces, if critics are ignorant is their problem. Snyder’s movies are out of their time, they will better appreciate with time, because is needed a brain to understand something smart. Zack will stay for Justice League 2, and maybe Justice League 3, Justice League 4, Justice League 5, Justice League 6 and so on. Maybe he will also be back for Man of Steel 2 and Man of Steel 3. Cinema is not about what useless critics will write on paper on sites, covered by hypocrisy, is about art and artist. Unfortunatley we live in an era where superficial movies are well accepted, only because they give to the audience what they want. A director should never compromise, a director should always create art based on his vision and he didn’t have to care about bias critics or lazy ignorant people. If movies are considered good only if they have good reviews, what’s the meaning of making movies anyway? Is easier to judge rather than create, a critic is useless . A film is something that will stay until the end of time, is a work made by hundreds of people. There are obviously bad movies, like the crossovers of that other company, where nothing really happen and everyone laughs. What was supposed to considered art, is now considered a way to make money, too many people and companies aren’t able to understand what cinema should be and their ignorance have ruined the seventh art.
