It appears that Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder have grown tired of the recent rumors that have been making the rounds regarding the future of the DC Extended Universe, so they have officially announced that Justice League – Part 1 will kick-off production on April 11, 2016. As previously revealed, Snyder will helm the movie, which is currently slated to open on November 17, 2017.

Entertainment Weekly broke the news earlier today and had a chance to speak with the director himself, who had the following to say about the highly anticipated movie:

“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.”

As the trade reveals, filming will primarily take place in southeast London, at the Warner Bros. Leavesden studios. Additionally, the movie will also be shot in other locations in the city, plus in Iceland. What do you guys think? Let us know your thoughts on the news in the comment section.
