‘Justice League’ Will Be A Standalone

Justice League

When WB announced it slate of DC Comics films in 2014, it was announced that Justice League would be a 2 parter. The first one in November 2017 and the second in 2019. This is apparently not the case.

A few weeks ago a rumor was launched on Reddit with different titles for Justice League that didn’t have “Part 1″ in it. Which lead DC Films Co Runner, Geoff Johns to debunked said rumors. In doing so Johns also announced that the title for Justice League would simply be, Justice League. This led a bunch of people, including myself, to doubt that Justice League would be a two parter.

Last week a bunch of Journalists got to visit the set of the epic DC Comics Superhero team up and Empire Magazine were lucky enough to sit down with Zack and Debbie Snyder. Speaking on whether Justice League would be a standalone. Deborah Snyder had this to say:

“We were only ever planning, and we are only doing, Justice League,”

Although, Deborah Snyder seems very confident that this will standalone, Zack had this to say:

“We still have a release date, Justice League a complete movie. It doesn’t end like, ‘Well, that’s the DC Universe!'”

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.

Directed by Zack Snyder, this marks the big screen debut of the Justice League, featuring an all-star lineup: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher.

    If true, this could be the first solid evidence of a potential big shift behind the scenes… Maybe. lol

    It sure seemed like DCE planned two JL films when they first announced the slate of shared universe films. Correct me if I’m wrong, please.

      I’m pretty sure they originally announced JL Part 1 & 2… are they trying to perform some kind of jedi mind trick to convince us that they never did?

    Man I’ve been saying for TWO years now that Justice League is not a two part movie (as in, one movie split into two parts, like the last Hunger Games, or Infinity War). It just didn’t make any sense given how far apart the release dates were. When I first listened to that big DC press conference in 2014, it sounded like they announced a Justice League movie, and then a potential SEQUEL. Just like Age of Ultron is a SEQUEL to The Avengers. Just because they used the words “Part 1 and Part 2” every news outlet that day made the poor assumption that it was one movie split into two parts. And the interwebs ran with it. 20-30 years ago, sequels were almost always called PART 2. They weren’t given special subtitles for the most part. It was just [Movie Title] with the number 2 added to it. It was SO obvious this is what Warner Bros meant by “Part 1 and Part 2”. They were talking about a complete JL movie, and then a separate sequel later on…a “Part 2” as we used to say. I’m glad they finally confirmed this.
