Even though Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is still a couple of months away, director Zack Snyder, as well as most of the cast of the movie, are already gearing up in order to start filming Justice League Part 1 later this year. While speaking to The Lowdown (via to promote Dorito’s final Clash the Superbowl contest, Zack Snyder offered praise for Ben Affleck — who will make his debut as the Caped Crusader in Batman v Superman — and teased the mystery villain of Justice League. Here’s what he had to say:

“We’re working on Justice League right now, right? In a weird way, Justice League is the next step for these characters to form a bigger team. Maybe there’s a bigger enemy to fight… [Affleck] is an amazing Batman….He’s a great Batman.”

Who could be more powerful than Doomsday? We’re likely going to find out within the next few months during the production of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, but there’s also a chance that the identity of the villain will be revealed when Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016. For now, feel free to speculate in the comment section below.
