Laurence Fishburne Confirms He Will Not Be in Justice League


Laurence Fishburne has had a supporting role in the DC Extended Universe playing Perry White, Editor-N-Chief of the Daily Planet in both Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

With Justice League according to Fishburne, he was written in the script but was unable to free up his schedule to work on the film. This was probably due to him taking a role in the Keanu Reeves sequel John Wick: Chapter 2. Though he understands why his role this time around was so short.

“They asked me to come for a day, but I couldn’t work it out, schedule-wise,” Fishburne explained.

“And really, what do you need the newspaperman in Justice League for?,” he added. “You want to see the Flash. You want to see Aquaman. You want to see Wonder Woman. You want to see the Lantern.”

Fishburne also spoke on his feelings with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, how he thought the film was amazing.

Look, I love what Zack Snyder does. Jesse Eisenberg, this little nebbishy guy, as Lex Luthor? For me, that’s a genius move. And the whole thing with Martha Kent and Martha Wayne? I don’t know, man, I must be sentimental but that’s some heartwarming [stuff] to me. So I don’t get it.”

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
