Justice League fans rejoice! It seems the patience level has peaked and the wait is finally, finally over! Well, almost. While the actual film won’t be out for a while, fans will be happy to know that Warner Bros. has announced that “Justice League – Part 1” will begin shooting April 11!
Zack Snyder, who directed “Man of Steel” and this March’s “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” posted a picture to his Twitter account with Jason Mamoa, who will play Aquaman. Behind the pair was a glimpse of some costumes, including The Flash costume that actor Ezra Miller will don in the film.

The anticipation is certainly high and there’s a lot of pressure for Snyder to deliver. Fans have been waiting for a Justice League movie for what feels like forever. And now that most everyone has been cast in their respective roles and solo movies are being worked on, the “Justice League” is beginning to take shape. And if the title is anything to go by, then there’ll be double movie goodness to anticipate!
Snyder had this to say about the film finally going into production:
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.”
“Dawn of Justice,” which will feature appearances by The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg, and a small role for Wonder Woman, will focus on the tension between Batman and Superman and will lay the foundations for the “Justice League” film, which is set to hit theaters November 17, 2017.
