Zack Snyder teases Justice League and defends Man Of Steel… plus Turkish airlines want us to visit Gotham and Metropolis

February 8th, 2016 by Matt Gault Comments


There’s been plenty of debate regarding how prominently the Justice League will feature in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Some reports have claimed it will merely be a blink and you’ll miss it cameo, while others have indicated a more key role in the narrative – which seems unlikely on the surface regarding the fact that they’ve yet to feature in the trailers.

Here’s what director Zack Snyder had to say in a recent interview about their involvement, and why it ultimately all comes back to Batman and Superman.

“As far as the other Justice League characters go, they play a very small role. It’s really just a whisper they exist. Except for Wonder Woman, we see her really well. But really the movie is about Batman and Superman. And we really take time with them and we really drill down on the why of them and what they stand for and their beliefs and them as characters. That’s pretty much the why of the movie. But again as I said, it does begin the conversation about these guys are out there.”

So, as we already knew, we will see a great deal of Wonder Woman, easing her way onto the big screen before her solo adventure in 2017. It also appears that Aquaman will make his presence felt more than The Flash or Cyborg. There’s not long to go now before we finally know and all the mysteries can be put to rest.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is released on March 25.
