After years of development, DC’s slate of films has really took off with the back to back Justice League films, set for release in 2017 and 2019, respectively. In a recent interview, costume designer Michael Wilkinson revealed that the production for the films will last one year, and that the films will shoot back to back simultaneously, via Comic Book Movie.
While it’s long been expected that the films will be shot back to back with Zack Snyder set to direct both installments, it seems natural that the films will be completed in one simultaneous shoot. With Marvel approaching their first back to back shoot with Avengers: Infinity War- Part 1 and Part 2 set for release in 2018 and 2019, it makes sense that DC would want to be the first to approach a back to back comic book film.
Though the yearlong production also seems to be a big change in the ways that studios produce films, the idea of a continuous shoot seems necessary for the massive production. Not only is the pivotal point of DC’s Extended Universe, but it‘ll also involve scheduling all of its leads for the shoot. With a rumored massive budget, a yearlong shoot seems required for DC to nail the film’s quality and kick off all the possibilities for the universe.
Justice League: Part One is set for release on November 17th, 2017.
Justice League: Part Two is set for release on June 14th, 2019.
