Much as I'm excited to see a glut of super heroes... Superman and Batman being together is such a great concept on its own that I'd like an entire movie dedicated to that before moving on to the others.
I think that's still likely to be what the bulk of the movie is about.

And then towards the end, as they're about to face down whatever huge threat there is, Batman will decide to enlist the help of others that he's been keeping tabs on-- presumably because Superman will have been severely weakened at that point and is not at full strength (because how ELSE to explain the need for other superheroes when someone with his powers is around? Lol)
Parademons flying out of boom tubes around the world? I think we are going to see something closer to the new 52 origin story.

Warner Bros plans for Zack Snyder to direct Justice League after Superman/Batman. You can read the story here at the WSJ.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Despite the WSJ story saying that Justice League won't be released before 2018, Latino Review is claiming they're hearing that WB is looking to release the movie on the 5th May 2017. File that under "rumor to be taken with a grain of salt" for now.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

2017 seems awfully soon given Batman/Superman is supposed to hit screens 2016. Unless the rumor that both productions will film back-to-back is true.

As for Zack Snyder directing Justice League... file that under "biggest surprise of the day". I think we all expected this to happen. To be honest, I'm fairly tepid regarding the news. As of right now, I want to see how the Batman/Superman movie pans out before I get excited or dismiss Justice League. I will say it seems WB is slightly rushing this whole JLA thing. I would have liked a few more solo movies before leading up to JLA, but if this means we might get a solo Wonder Woman movie somewhere down the line (including more spin-offs) then I guess I can't complain.

I just hope David Goyer stays far away from this project.

Damn. I was hoping for Ben Affleck to direct Justice League.

I'd want Ben to direct the Wonder Woman movie to be honest.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

I was skeptical of the Latino Review release date rumor, but Borys Kit of The Hollywood Reporter tweets:

Yes, Zack Snyder will direct Justice League. Yes it will shoot back to back. Likely release date: 2017. Likely announcement: Comic Con.
Sweet!

At this point I'm just lowering my expectations about superhero movies from Warner Bros. Studios. Heck, even their recent animated DVD movies have been weak since Bruce Timm stopped producing them and they started adapting The New 52.

This makes sense. I can get behind this. Especially if Snyder & WB have enough foresight to be planting seeds in Batman/Superman which will obviously lead directly into Justice League.

Certainly seems that way from the casting of some characters who will have small roles in Batman/Superman that will be expanded in Justice League. In fact, there was a rumor a little while ago that Batman/Superman will end on a cliffhanger that leads directly into Justice League.

I'd be game for this. I think I'd be a lot less critical & harsh on WB's plans for the franchise if this turns out to be true.

Snyder and crew are going to be working their asses off for the next few years. Big task they've taken on.

I'm actually pretty excited about this. To me, this shows that at least they finally have some sort of plan, and aren't just going to throw stuff out there willy-nilly because Marvel's kicking their ass.
