It seems like Warner Bros. and DC Comics’ film schedule isn’t written in stone. According to THR, the sequel to Justice League has been delayed, allowing Zack Snyder to take a break from the superhero genre and giving Warner Bros. the opportunity to release Ben Affleck’s much talked about Batman movie.
It was expected for Zack Snyder to release Justice League and head straight to work on the sequel, but now that’s not the case. Instead, the director will work on The Last Photograph, a film he has been working on for years. Snyder is reportedly still planning on returning for the sequel but the film has been pushed back.
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.
