Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. have officially announced Justice League: Part One will begin principal photography on April 11, 2016 for a November 16, 2017 release date.
Snyder had this to say about the announcement:
“The idea that we could begin to boot up a Justice League concept was a cool thing,”
“It was a little bit of an ‘about time’ moment, and I don’t blame [the studio] for feeling that way, because it’s a long time coming. But I do feel like it’s a little bit of a creative hurdle. It seems like an easy thing to do at first glance, the idea that, ‘Oh, we just get the rest of the superheroes in there.’ But you have to establish a world where they can exist.”
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will hit theaters on March 25th of this year (2016, in case you're reading this in the future and freak out because you think there's a new Justice League movie coming).
Entertainment Weekly also confirms The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg will make brief cameos during the film. Filming will begin in the UK where Snyder is currently in preparations.
This disproves the rumor of Warner Bros. delaying the film due to concern over Batman v Superman. Though how the film turns out both critically and financially remains to be seen.
