'Justice League,' 'Avengers 2' Set For Summer 2015 Face-Off
Prepare for a 2015 clash of the superhero titans: According to the LA Times, Warner Bros. is moving full steam ahead on their Justice League movie with an eye to hit theaters in Summer 2015, which also happens to be when Marvel's set the blockbuster sequel to their enormously successful Avengers.
The announcement via anonymous studio tipster comes on the heels of yesterday's huge legal win in a battle over the rights to the Superman character, without which any Supes projects would have been delayed another few years pending rights clearances.
LA Times reports that with a Justice League script on the way, the search for a director and stars is next as WB aims to begin filming next year. Per DC Comics lore, the Justice League is comprised of Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman, and The Martian Manhunter. The plan is reportedly to debut the multi-hero team-up first, then spin-off characters into their own standalone films.
All of which begs the question: Will the summer of 2015 be the biggest moviegoing season in history? (And if you had to choose, which side of the Marvel/DC culture wars are you on?)
