The Wall Street Journal reports that Warner Bros. president of worldwide production, Greg Silverman, has plans set for, not only, Batman vs Superman, but for JUSTICE LEAGUE after it.
“Justice League” will be directed by Zack Snyder. Henry Cavill is expected to return as Superman, along with Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot, who play Batman and Wonder Woman, respectively, in 2016’s “Man of Steel” sequel tentatively titled “Batman vs. Superman.”

Most of this we knew. What we didn't know was who would be at the helm of the first telling of DC's super team and Warner Brothers cash cow. And that man is Zack Snyder, director of the movie that began it all, Man Of Steel.
“It will be a further expansion of this universe,” said Mr. Silverman. “’Superman vs Batman’ will lead into ‘Justice League.’”
The script is still in the works and the date hasn't been set and Snyder wouldn't comment on any of the other Justice Leaguers who would be joining the holy trinity of the DC universe, although we did get an announcement that Cyborg would be joining them and Green Arrow and the Flash are both making waves on television.
But Silverman's announcement didn't stop there:
"Warner Bros. has several other movies in development unconnected to the Justice League that are based on DC superheroes and fantasy and crime titles from its Vertigo line of genre comics," said Mr. Silverman and Toby Emmerich, president of Warner’s New Line Cinema label.
They include “Shazam,” “Metal Men,” “100 Bullets,” and “Fables.”
As for maybe a Wonder Woman solo movie?
And while there are no plans yet for a “Justice League” spinoff featuring Ms. Gadot’s “Wonder Woman,” Warner executives said they are warm to the idea.
“That is our hope,” said Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing. “With the right script, that could be viable. The world is ready for her.”
