Justice League[2][3] is an upcoming superhero movie based on the superhero characters of DC Comics, known collectively as the Justice League. It is slated for release on November 17, 2017. It will be followed by a sequel, Justice League 2, in 2019.[4]


Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. However, despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.[5]

Production historyEdit

Although Christopher Nolan was rumored to be directing Justice League,[6] Nolan himself ruled it out, but will likely produce the film. In June 2012, Will Beall was hired to write the screenplay for a Justice League film, in which Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman would be the main characters.[7][8] Warner Bros. announced plans for the Justice League film to have a summer 2015 release date to compete with the sequel to The Avengers, though they have yet to complete a script or officially hire a director.[9]

Man of Steel director Zack Snyder stated, "I don't know how 'Justice League' is going to be handled. Honestly, I don't. But 'The Man of Steel' exists, and Superman is in it. I don’t know how you’d move forward without acknowledging that," during an interview with the New York Post in November 2012. He also claimed that Warner Bros. expects him to "keep them on course" as regards to their cinematic universe.[10] The Superman villains Brainiac and Doomsday are rumored to be possible antagonists.[citation needed]

It was announced in October 2014 that the film would be split in to two parts, the first being released in 2017 and the second in 2019.[11] Producer Deborah Snyder confirmed the 2 Justice League movies are not two-part films. Zack Snyder says Justice League is most influenced by Jack Kirby's "New Gods".
