Justice League will start filming on April 11th.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League – Part 1 is officially in pre-production at Warner Bros. and will begin filming on April 11th, a little over two weeks after the release of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, according to reports.
The idea that we could begin to boot up a Justice League concept was a cool thing, says Snyder, who has become the creative mastermind behind the DC movie universe.It was a little bit of an about time moment, and I dont blame [the studio] for feeling that way, because its a long time coming, he said. But I do feel like its a little bit of a creative hurdle. It seems like an easy thing to do at first glance, the idea that, Oh, we just get the rest of the superheroes in there. But you have to [establish] a world where they can exist.
Dawn of Justice, hits theaters on March 25th, centers around a fight between Superman and a new Batman (played by Ben Affleck). The movie also features a major role for Wonder Woman (played by Gal Gadot), which is the first time this character has appeared in a movie in her 75-year history.
Other famous characters expected to make appearances in the movie including Ezra Miller as the Flash, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg. However, as Batman and Superman battle it out in the main storyline, they will most likely be cameos to set up the groundwork for the growing DC Universe and the upcoming Justice League movie.
A previous Justice League movie was planned nine years ago, with Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller as the director. However, the project collapsed due to the 2007-2008 Writers Guild strike when the script was not ready in time to start filming.
In addition, Wonder Woman was also supposed to get her own movie in 2005 when Joss Whedon was developing a movie that he planned to write and direct, but that movie was never released.
Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot is currently filming and will be released on June 23. That movie will be followed up a few months later with the Justice League movie.
Meanwhile, on August 5th DC’s Suicide Squad from writer/director David Ayer, Jared Leto as the Joker, Will Smith as Deadshot and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.
According to reports, Justice League will film in southeast England, as well as various locations across London and in Iceland. While this movie is called Part 1, the follow-up installment, which will film separately, is already on the studio’s release schedule for 2019, following the standalone movies for The Flash and Aquaman.
