‘Justice League’ Will Hit Theaters in Summer 2015, Do Battle With ‘The Avengers 2′
Warner Bros. isn't playing around with their plans to make the 'Justice League' movie finally happen. The studio has announced that they're targeting a summer 2015 release date... which means we'll see the Justice League go up against 'The Avengers' in one epic Marvel vs. DC stand-off.
Two movies will enter the summer blockbuster season featuring epic team-ups of superheroes, but only one will walk away with the bigger box office gross. We like to say you vote with your dollar, and this time around, it couldn't be more true. Will more of you flock to see the heroes of DC or the heroes of Marvel? You'll have your chance to see both in the summer of 2015.
The LA Times reports that Warner Bros. is eying the 2015 summer block for its release of the 'Justice League' movie, which would pit it against Marvel and Disney's 'The Avengers' sequel, also hitting theaters that summer. But here's the thing: WB is sort of jumping the gun because they don't even have a director at this point -- just a script from Will Beall. The studio seems rather confident about their film, which is said to unite Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Green Lantern, and the Flash.
It seems WB also wanted Chris Nolan to produce the film, as he is with Zack Snyder's upcoming 'Man of Steel,' but the director turned them down. It's said that WB is, however, looking to have 'Man of Steel' star Henry Cavill join the 'Justice League' film to reprise his role as Superman. No other casting has been announced at this time, though Armie Hammer of 'The Social Network' and 'The Lone Ranger' has been rumored as a possible candidate for Batman.
