Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. With the recent legal win for Warner Bros, allowing them to keep using Superman in film, the studio is moving full speed ahead on casting and crewing up their Justice League movie.
The LA Times has a story with an anonymous source tells them that with Superman free and clear, the studio aims to shoot next year and release Summer 2015, which would put it close to Avengers 2, which already has a May 1st, 2015 date set.
The other interesting thing about the article is that it confirms there won't be many build up films, which is the tried and true Marvel template, and their "reboot" of Batman won't happen until AFTER the Justice League movie. That means whoever the new Batman is (if it's not Joseph Gordon-Levitt) will be introduced to the public in Justice League.
Interesting times for comic book fans. I'm eager to see DC step up to the bar set by Marvel Films (meaning beyond their top 2 characters), but I don't know how it's going to work out for them jumping into the deep end first. I guess a good script with a good director will be the only thing that really matters at the end of the day, so let's see how this develops.
