Following news earlier this week that Warner Bros. is planning a Justice League movie for 2013 there were questions as to whether it would be connected to Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, and the new Batman reboot which the studio is also planning for after The Dark Knight Rises.
While at the London opening of Sucker Punch Snyder was questioned on the recent Justice League news, and said it won’t be connected to his new take on Superman.
We asked Snyder about the plans for the Justice League movie and how his Superman fitted in with that? This is what he said,
‘It doesn’t. Like what Chris Nolan is doing and what I’m doing with Superman, what they’ll do with Justice League will be it’s own thing with it’s own Batman and own Superman. We’ll be over here with our movie and they’ll kinda get to do it twice which is kinda cool’
I’m not fond of the idea of having separate Superman and Batman movies running alongside a Justice League franchise. While Superman and Batman are the most well known members of the team the studio should just let them have their own thing going on, and use the Justice League movie to establish The Flash, Wonder Woman and other characters. Do we really need two actors playing Superman and Batman?
