Zack Snyder’s Justice League 2 was originally scheduled to be released today before Warner Bros. changed its plans for the DC Extended Universe.
In October 2015, Warner Bros. announced plans to release Zack Snyder’s Justice League in two parts, with the filmmaker set to helm both installments. While Justice League Part One was scheduled to be released in theaters on November 17, 2017, Part Two was initially set for a June 14, 2019, theatrical debut.
Of course, the divisive reception and underwhelming box office performance of both Batman v Superman and Justice League prompted a reshuffling of the film production staff at Warner Bros. being reshuffled while the studio reassessed their plans for the DC Extended. As a result, Warner Bros. has now prioritized standalone films over a Justice League film and plans for Zack Snyder’s sequel, obviously, never materialized.

Warner Bros. and DC Films have many projects currently being developed including The Batman, The Flash standalone film, Green Lantern Corps, Black Adam, Supergirl, New Gods, and Nightwing.
The DCEU continues this month with Aquaman which is now playing and will be followed by Shazam! on April 5, 2019, Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) on February 7, 2020, and Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020. A standalone Joker film set outside of the DC Films universe starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Crime is also set to hit theaters October 4, 2019.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, and Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director, James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
Aquaman is now playing. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the current DC cinematic universe as we learn it.
