‘Justice League 2’ Pushed Back For Ben Affleck’s ‘Batman’ Movie

Justice League 2 has been pushed back to make room for Ben Affleck's standalone Batman movie, which will reportedly start production in the spring of 2017.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Zack Snyder’s first post-Justice League directorial effort will not be a sequel to that movie, but rather a project called The Last Photograph, which he has been developing since the mid-2000s.

Here’s how THR describes The Last Photograph:

“Photograph centers on a war correspondent in Afghanistan who is the only one to survive an attack on a group of Americans. When a special ops soldier in search of a family member shows up, the two team up, with the correspondent hoping to score the story of his life.”

According to the trade, Justice League 2 has also been pushed back to an unknown date to make room for Ben Affleck’s standalone Batman movie, which we’ve previously heard would start production in the spring of 2017. Snyder is apparently “still intent” on helming the Justice League sequel, but it won’t be his next project.

Justice League 2 was previously set for June 14, 2019, but this means that it will now arrive in theaters on another date. We don’t know when that will be or whether or not its old date will be given to Affleck’s Batman movie, so stick around for more updates.
