In Snyder’s absence, Joss Whedon, who will be writing and directing Batgirl, will take over for Snyder to finish post-production on Justice League.

Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman, Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash, Ray Fisher as Victor Stone/Cyborg, Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Ciaran Hinds as Steppenwolf, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Amber Heard as Mera, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner James Gordon, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielson as Queen Hippolyta, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor.

“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.”

Justice League hits theaters November 17, 2017.

Justice League
The DC Cinematic Universe needs a win and Geoff Johns and Zack Snyder have their fingers crossed Wonder Woman and Justice League will give things a boost. Aquaman keeps adding members to the cast and is set to start shooting soon while Flash has already lost two directors, meaning there’s a lot riding on WB’s next two big DC movies to secure a future for their cinematic plans.

There’s a lot to look forward to in Justice League and quite a few reasons to believe it could match or surpass The Avengers. WB is introducing most of their supporting characters for the first time in Justice League opposed to how Marvel had already introduced every member of the team by the time they came together for The Avengers. That means we have a lot to watch for as we meet a lot of characters on the big-screen for the first time.
