The hype and excitement for Zack Snyder’s upcoming Batman versus Superman ‘Dawn of Justice‘ film featuring Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman is so pronounced and important to the Warner Bros. studio, that production plans are already moving forward on not only Wonder Woman, but the first and second Justice League movies as well.
While the first Justice League movie is not scheduled for release until November of 2017, the second Justice League movie is in fact slated for a June 2019 release, but the next DC Comic super hero film on everyone’s radar leading up to the Justice League is in fact Wonder Woman.
Gal Gadot will not only debut a Justice League founding League member in ‘Dawn of Justice‘ but will reprise her role in an upcoming and stand alone Wonder Woman film directed by Patty Jenkins, which is set for a June 23, 2017 release. The film will also feature Star Trek’s very own Chris Pines as Steve Trevor, along with Nicole Kidman also appearing as the rumored Amazonian queen.
It was in fact ‘Dawn of Justice‘ producer Charles Roven who recently said the following to Collider:
“We’re making most of Wonder Woman in the U.K. and we’re also making most of Justice League there, … We’re definitely gonna be shooting Part One in the first or second quarter of next year.”
Even with Wonder Woman set to begin filming later this month in both the United Kingdom and Italy, the real super hero and comic universe magic is really what both ‘Dawn of Justice‘ and the upcoming Wonder Woman films are in fact setting the grand stage for; the first Justice League movie.
Once the next films have established the important relationships which bind the major and iconic DC personalities of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, the world will then be introduced to the integral team members who are both staple and integral members of the Justice League.
Interestingly, the first Justice League movie will also be directed by Zack Snyder, with an anticipated release date of November 10, 2017 and also feature Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Ezra Miller as The Flash, and Jason Momoa as Aquaman. And of course, no Justice League movies would be complete without the core Justice League stars, Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.
