Efforts to bring the DCU together at Warner Bros. Pictures remain on going with the development of several of its properties, a few of which are slowly but surely gaining traction; The latter being at least three of the now culminating cast for the first of two Justice League films currently on deck from the studio with a release date set for November 17.
In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
If a Man Of Steel sequel does manage to procure out of this, I think it would be very opportune for the studio. The first one set things afoot to just the destructive and combative degree it needed to for Superman to be a thing again, and following earlier reports, I think Matthew Vaughn would be a splendid choice to grant our hero the follow up some fans might be looking forward to.
In the meantime, that film remains one of the handful of titles still brewing while Ben Affleck’s The Batman gets its ducks in a row for helmer Matt Reeves and James Wan prepares Aquaman for his own solo outing with Gal Gadot’s June bloom set for Wonder Woman under Patty Jenkins. Cyborg and The Flash still need packaging. These will all hopefully unfold before long as Justice League ramps up its campaign, and now finally with an official trailer to consume the interwebs after a week of teaser announcements and poster profusion.
Justice League joins Momoa, Affleck and Gadot with Henry Cavill as Superman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg with Ciarán Hinds, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons and Jesse Eisenberg also starring.
