‘Justice League’ Movie: DC Superhero Ensemble to be a Trilogy?
So fans like me have been waiting for the “Justice League” movie to happen for more than a decade now. Finally when the updates started rolling in that the movie will start pre-production next year, everyone’s hopes raised too. But what if I were to tell you about a rumor that we might just get a “Justice League” trilogy instead of an initially planned two-parts?
According to Movie Pilot, there is an explanation for the above claim and it does make sense to some extent. Given the speed Zack Snyder is going at currently with respect to establishing the DC Extended Universe, it is being said that he has enough material to make DC’s grand venture “Justice League.” It was reported that it will be a three-part movie instead of a two-part movie.
However since the executives at Warner Bros. are the ones who call the shot insist that the “Justice League” movie should be a two-part as per originally planned. The movie that has been tentatively titled “Justice League: Brainiac Saga” will be shot after “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and Synder plans to make it in a way which will be different than how Marvel’s approach is with their Marvel Cinematic Universe.
However since the “Hobbit” trilogy which in a way was deemed a failed venture when it was divided into three parts has managed to worry the WB executives who don’t want any kind of comparison. On the other hand, there are chances that a two-part “Justice League” movie might be compared with rival Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War” movie. Second concern is that since his material can easily make three 2.5 hour long “Justice League” movies, Warner Bros. feel that Zack might not have the required amount of time to direct all three given the fact that he wants to direct all the three movies by himself.
The Week added that since “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Suicide Squad” is going to kick off the DC Extended Universe ultimately leading to “Justice League” movies, script of the first part could already be ready as the movie will start pre-production in January next year. Till then it will all depend on how “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Suicide Squad” perform at the box office.
