It seems that Zack Snyder is going to be having a lot on his plate in the near future with the news that Warner Brother has put him in charge of both ‘Justice League’ and ‘Justice League 2.’ Especially if he’ll also be helping the other DC films which have recently been announced. There is currently a rumor floating around, however, that explains not only how his ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ is going to come to a close but also how it will directly lead into both ‘Justice League’ movies.
Beware! While these still are considered rumors, they would be considered spoilers if true!
We’ve already heard numerous reports and rumors that ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ will end with a huge fight between Superman and Batman pitted against Brainiac. Only, it is a little more complex than that. It is actually going to end with these two joined by Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Aquaman, and The Flash to defeat this alien. Sounds like the groundwork of the ‘Justice League’ to me if that is to be believed. Only things aren’t serious enough yet. If this is true, I would expect it to be the end scene credit and not the end of the movie where we also see Green Lantern show up to tell the team that an even greater evil is coming to threaten the planet. The one, the only, Darkseid.
All of these events though can apparently be tied directly to Superman from when he set off the Kryptonian beacon in ‘Man of Steel‘. Aquaman actually seems to show up from when the World Engine is going off in the first film and laid waste to Atlantis. Also, General Zod might not be around in the film but word has it that his corpse will be an important part of it.
So, I know I’ve been a little down on ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ as I wasn’t a huge fan of Snyder’s work on ‘Man of Steel.’ I hope he proves me wrong here and gives us a masterpiece. I’m firmly in the Marvel camp at this point but competition breeds innovation and while Marvel has clearly proven they have a ton of that,I don’t want them to grow stale. DC and WB, please give us a movie here worth ‘The Avengers’. I mean it, fans of the characters deserve a film that isn’t just dark and world ending with your characters.
Are you looking forward to Snyder being the guiding hand for the DC universe for years to come or is this making you dread what DC is about to be putting out movie wise?
‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ will be released on May 6, 2016, ‘Justice League’ is due to be released in 2017, and ‘Justice League 2’ is due out in 2019.
