A new Justice League movie is on the way

Justice League Coming Soon, but Will it Save the Day?

Zack Snyder, the director of the 2013 Man of Steel Superman reboot starring Henry Cavill, has been confirmed as the director for the forthcoming Justice League movie, based off of the popular DC Comics series. Apart from Russell Crowe’s performance, the Superman reboot was a struggle to sit through, but Warner Brothers and DC felt moving forward with Zack Snyder to direct Batman vs. Superman, and then to Justice League was the right play (except not really).

Clocking in at just under two and a half hours (two hours and twenty-three minutes to be exact), Man Of Steel dragged us through a slug-paced build up to one of the most polarizing, character-breaking climaxes in comic book film history, all while flexing on us with their bloated CGI budget, managing to leave the bad taste of 300 on our palettes.

Be honest: do we really want to sit through one more poorly developed screenplay (Batman vs. Superman) from DC in an attempt to match the acclaim of Marvel’s 2012 jam packed crossover The Avengers?

So far, Henry Cavill is returning as Superman, Ben Affleck is scheduled to play Batman (really?), and Gal Gadot (Fast and Furious 6) has been confirmed as Wonder Woman, none of which piques our interest in this movie. Don’t be surprised if we find a Wonder Twins cameo in Justice League.

The Justice League movie is still in development, and Batman vs. Superman is scheduled to release May 6, 2016. Let us know in the comments if you think this flick is gonna be superdope or supersmelly.
