With Warner Bros. expected to announce its plans for future DC films tomorrow, we have a major update on the long-awaited Justice League movie. According to Deadline, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice scribe Chris Terrio is being courted by the studio to return for the next installment in the DC Cinematic Universe, which officially brings DC’s biggest heroes together. The writer has been the subject of much praise since his Oscar winning work on Argo, and he is said to have “crushed” the Batman v Superman script. No word on whether or not he will take on Justice League, but don’t be surprised if he does.
Justice League will be directed by Man of Steel and Batman v Superman helmer Zack Snyder. Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot and Jason Momoa will reprise their roles from both movies as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman, respectively. Additionally, Ray Fisher is playing Victor Stone in Dawn of Justice, so don’t be surprised if he becomes Cyborg in the next movie. A release date for Justice League hasn’t been set yet, but May 5th, 2017 is the current rumor. Expect an announcement on this and much more related to DC on film tomorrow at Warner’s San Diego Comic-Con panel.
