Zack Snyder, the director of the upcoming Superman reboot, has hinted that Man of Steel could be used to set up proposed superhero ensemble movie Justice League.

Speaking to the New York Post, Snyder suggested studio Warner Bros "trusted" him to "keep them on course" for Justice League, which will feature Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman uniting in a single cause and is due in 2015. The film-maker's comments have been widely interpreted as a clear sign that Warner will use Man of Steel as a launchpad for a series of linked movies set in the DC Comics universe, just as Disney's Marvel Studios did with its selection of films (beginning with 2008's Iron Man) that set up this year's $1.5bn blockbuster The Avengers.

"I don't know how Justice League is going to be handled. Honestly, I don't," Snyder said. "But Man of Steel exists, and Superman is in it. I don't know how you'd move forward without acknowledging that."

Asked if he and Warner had discussed integrating Man of Steel into a larger superhero universe, Snyder then added: "Um, how can I answer that? I can't really say anything to that, because that's a big spoiler. I will say, yeah, they trust me to keep them on course."

Man of Steel, which stars British actor Henry Cavill as Superman with Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Russell Crowe as Jor-El and Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, is due in cinemas for June next year. Michael Shannon plays villain General Zod and Laurence Fishburne is Daily Planet editor Perry White. Production is being "godfathered" by Christopher Nolan, who has just completed his own highly successful series of Batman films with this year's The Dark Knight Rises.

Despite hinting that Superman, and Cavill, might be back in Justice League, Snyder said the film-makers were not yet thinking about further solo outings for the character. "We approach the film as a single endeavour," he said. "There are a lot of gears that have to turn in the world of commerce and the world of the mythology we create to facilitate more adventures for this character. We'll see what happens."















Not a whole lot of info, but im still stoked for MoS and anxious to see how Justice League will start gaining momentum.

    Who will play Batman I wonder

    Rumors are Joseph Gordon Levitt tbh.

    When it comes to comic book movies, you can always count on rumors to surface before any official announcements. It's strange that you don't often see casting rumors as often for movies in other genres. There has been some talk lately about Warner Bros.' plans for Superman, Batman and the Justice League.

    One question has been whether or not Zack Snyder's Man of Steel will lead into a Justice League movie as Marvel did their movies. Snyder had vaguely addressed this when speaking to the New York Post.

    I can't really say anything to that, because that's a big spoiler. I will say, yeah, they trust me to keep them on course.
    It's also been said that whoever plays Batman in the Justice League movie will carry the Bat-franchise on in solo movies as well. The latest rumor suggests that Josephe Gordon-Levitt will be that actor.

    Hitfix exclusively reported that according to "sources," Josephe Gordon-Levitt will "absolultely be appearing in Justice League as the new Batman."

    Of course, there is no mention of what these sources are but Hitfix isn't a site that simply throws rumors around for the sake of starting rumors.

    The speculation continues that Gordon-Levitt could be suiting up before Justice League and make a cameo in Man of Steel. If he is the one to take on the mantle, it would make sense to try to have a connection start in next summer's film. This would also tie the movies into Christopher Nolan's Batman universe.

    Justice League is set for release in 2015. Man of Steel will be released on June 14, 2013. You can bet people will be watching Gordon-Levitt to see whether or not he visits the Man of Steel set anytime soon. Then again, if this is true, perhaps he's already filmed something which may have been the source of this news.

    I think if they let Geoff Johns Write aquaman in the movie universe, he could be hella fucking bad ass. Aquaman has dope land skills too. Can't fly but he can power jump. or have lantern carry him lol.

    Johns currently writes Aquaman's comic and its one of my fave series'

    JGL is 5' 10", he's a little short to be The Batman, unless they totally disregard the fact Diana is a suppose to be a tall ass white girl, there should be a noticeable height difference between Supes, The Batman, and Diana. That's one of the things that bothered me about the X-Men films, they got Storm and Logan's height wrong. Logan was suppose to be about Halle Berry's height and Storm has the height of a super model.

    JGL would be fucking amazing as Batman. He is a fantastic actor, and would body this role. Niggas really need to get of this nonsense about the actors being the same look as COMIC BOOK heroes. DC lists Batman at 6'2 and 210. How in the world is this dude 210lbs???

    The only thing that matters is how well the actor can fill out the character.

    This is a long ways off. They need a flash, wonder woman and a better GL movie. Then they have to reboot Batman to fit into the comic universe.

    I like the way DC is trying to turn things around but I don't agree with JGL as Batman, he'd be better suited in a Robin role. He fits that character perfectly

    Other then Batman, nobody gives a flying fuck about that Superman dude... Zack Snyder needs to be more focused on how this "Man of Steel" movie is going to do before he even thinks about a Justice League movie. He better hope this shit don't flop like that last Superman movie of a dud that came out in 05'/06' whatever the fuckin year it was that movie came out... I remember when Superman was the face of DC... But then Batman pulled a White Ranger on em' and took the lead.

    A JL movie without Aquaman will do average numbers, conversely a JL movie WITH Aquaman would be some SERIOUS numbers.

    If a Batman movie can do close numbers a movie with Bats & Supes will crush no to mention add WW,Flash etc

    Nope because Batman is the only one that is popular now. No one cares about super man on the big screen anymore.

    LOL@ Aquaman being popular. Nobody gives a fuck about Aquaman.

    The problem is simply the characters for JLA. C'mon, Aquaman? Flash? Wonder Woman and the truth whip? lol @ Martian Manhunter.

    The only characters that interest me are Batman and Superman (superman not so much so tho)

    It's like Marvel beat DC to the most interesting characters or something.

    But I will say what no one else will say...The Avengers movie was horrible. That script was absolutely terrible. But we were just wowed to see the Avengers happen..

    I'm quite certain those sentiments will change when that MOS trailer drops in a couple weeks.

    Unless Christopher reeves is about to fly out the grave in a wheel chair wearing a red and blue suit, then no one really checking for supes like that anymore. Superman returns killed any chance for people to move past the 80's movies.

    Batman is like an anti hero people love anti heroes.

    Movie looks ok from what I seen but supe needs better villains on the screen.

    GL would need a redo and flash and ww need movies to introduce the to the public. Disney beat dc to the punch and it may not work out for them
