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

One of the WSJ stories reported that Diane Nelson, the President of DC Entertainment, was formerly reporting to four different execs within WB. There's been a streamlining of the corporate structure and she now reports directly to Kevin Tsujihara, who took over as the CEO of WB last year.

WB has a whole bunch of pilots in contention for next season on television, all of which are looking good to be ordered to series, and they're now making some big moves on the feature side. Hopefully things continue to move in a positive direction.

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.
Eh, I think we've waited long enough already. And it's still not coming out for another 4 years.

Agreed. I was a huge fan of Snyder's direction on MOS, although I DO think it would be smart for him to veer away from the moody and poetic style of MOS for the next two films and make them a bit more straightforward and plot-driven like TDK or Winter Soldier.

Since not everyone responded well to the moody thing in the last movie (and I don't want to hear more complaints about there "not being enough story").

Three years.

Well given how long it's taking to make MOS2, I think the 2018 for JL is probably the more likely one.

If the reports are right, they delayed Superman/Batman to facilitate back-to-back filming with Justice League to set up a one-two 2016/2017 punch for the releases.

Not a decent enough reason to justify getting this so soon. We waited a long time for The Avengers, too, but that didn't force Marvel to rush that movie.

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

So why not make this a Justice League movie to begin with if they've already cast Wonder Woman and Cyborg?

Why not make Iron Man 2 an Avengers movie to begin with if it already featured Nick Fury and Black Widow? No harm in easing into things. Doing a series gives you the luxury to set things up in advance, to establish a character in a supporting role before moving them into the spotlight.

They should hold off the JL movie until 2018....What better way to recognize the 10th anniversary of the MCU?

With the third Avengers film, naturally.

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

I'm not at all surprised by the JL announcement, but I am a little by the announcement of director. I was thinking that since JL was the start of a new series, we'd get a new director. I liked MoS, so based on that I don't have a problem with Snyder directing JL, but Batman vs Superman will probably have a bigger impact on my opinion.

Well Snyder would make sense if they end up shooting back-to-back.

Which is exactly what they're apparently doing. JL is not the start of a new series, it's the direct continuation of Superman vs. Batman.

After all, the goal here is not just to do JL1, 2, 3, etc. It's to do a multi-hero franchise like the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with a mix of solo and team films sharing a common continuity. The start of the series was Man of Steel.

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

I have to admit it does seem a bit surprising WB is sticking with Snyder through all this, after the negative reviews MOS got. Especially when we see studios having no problem kicking other directors to the curb after the first movie of a franchise disappointed in some way (Hunger Games, Divergent, Twilight, etc).

I'm sure they must have requested a few changes in the tone or style and were satisfied that Snyder would be able to make them. Either that or they just couldn't find anybody else who wanted to do it. Lol

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

Feedback from the general public was more positive than from critics and online geekdom and, while they clearly want to ramp the box office up substantially with the next one, the film performed well enough to kickstart the series, so I'm not surprised they stuck with Snyder. I would have been surprised if they hadn't.
