Superman, Batman and now…Elfman. Danny Elfman is going to dole out the sweet sound of justice, coming on board to compose the score for Justice League, Warner Bros.’ all-star superhero extravaganza, THR has learned.
Justice League Dark, comics are going to have to wait a bit longer for the film adaptation, as it just lost its director. Sources tell Variety that director Doug Liman has left the project. Insiders say the reason is schedule-related, as Liman is also attached to direct Lionsgate’s Chaos Walking, which recently received a greenlight.
The filmmaker's daughter died by suicide in March, prompting him to take a break from work and Joss Whedon to finish the Warner Bros. superhero pic: "I’ve decided to take a step back from the movie to be with my family, be with my kids, who really need me."
Contrary to reports, Warner Bros. and DC Films’ “Justice League” has not undergone massive reshoots, multiple people with knowledge of the film tell TheWrap. “There has been no additional photography to date on ‘Justice League,’ we have planned and will shoot additional pickups early summer,” says one studio insider. “Additional photography has always been planned like most pictures in general but certainly for a tentpole of ‘Justice League’s’ size and scope,” the source continued.
Update: Early reports that suggested Zack Synder’s ‘Justice League’ could clock in at 170 minutes appear to be unfounded. The Wrap is reporting that the film’s runtime has not been finalised yet, adding the “filmmakers aren’t close to knowing the precise runtime as of now.” Although IMDB lists the film’s runtime at 2 hours 50 minutes, it’s worth pointing out that – like Wikipedia – pages can be edited by users and so data on a film’s page isn’t always foolproof. Original story: Anyone who was a bit concerned by the tone of the ‘Justice League’ trailer, should perhaps look away now. ...
The Justice League cast (minus Gal Gadot) united at CinemaCon to show off some new footage. Director Zack Snyder came to the stage with Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) — as well as The Flash (Ezra Miller) providing a piggyback ride to Cyborg (Ray Fisher).
The first official trailer for ‘Justice League’ made its way online, but the reaction has been mixed. The heroes that make up the Justice League (bar Superman, of course). While we’d seen footage of Warner Bros. and DC’s upcoming superhero ensemble before, this was the first proper trailer unleashed, and it packed a huge amount into two-and-a-half minutes.
As well as giving us our first proper look at the team in action (including a curiously Iron Man-esque Cyborg, played by Ray Fisher), this trailer also gives us our first brief glimpses of some other new characters, including Amber Heard as Mera, and JK Simmons as Commissioner Gordon. There’s also a quick glimpse of Amy Adams as Lois Lane – although, as necessitated by the ending of ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ one rather notable absentee is Henry Cavill as Superman.
In preparation for the ‘Justice League’ trailer, a new snap of Ben Affleck’s Batsuit for the DC superhero bonanza has been revealed. And it all looks a bit less brooding, and a bit more chirpy than the hulking outfit he was given for ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’. Here it is in its full glory… And compare it to the rather more sober garms he wore in BvS… This ‘tactical batsuit’, as it’s being dubbed, is more trim, his bat ears look a bit smaller, and with its grey bat logo, generally feels a little brighter than past iterations. ...
Thankfully, there’s already a tease of what’s to come, with Aquaman getting his own mini teaser. It’s cool, it’s impressive and it’s apparently the first of five teasers to come before the full trailer is revealed on Saturday.
This November’s ‘Justice League’ will see the introduction of a new Commissioner Jim Gordon to the DC Extended Universe – but it sounds like it will be a pretty short introduction. JK Simmons, who will make his debut as the time-honoured ally of Batman in the superhero ensemble piece from ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘Batman V Superman’ director Zack Snyder, has revealed in a new interview that he won’t be in the film much. Reintroduction might be the better word, given that Commissioner Gordon has been a staple of the ‘Batman’ movies, played by the late Pat Hingle in the Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher movies, and most recently by Gary Oldman in Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy.
Zack Snyder has revealed a new clip from ‘Justice League’. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a very small clip from what’s likely going to be an action-packed almost-debut for the character in the upcoming ‘Justice League’ movie.

Credit: Warner Bros. In the latest rumour to suggest discontent at Warner Bros when it comes to its DC superhero films, it is being suggested that Ben Affleck no longer wants to play Batman. The news comes shortly after Affleck departed ‘The Batman’s directors chair not long before shooting was set to begin. ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ director Matt Reeves has been touted as his replacement.
It appears Warner Bros/DC have decided who will replace Ben Affleck in the director’s chair on ‘The Batman’ – and it’s Matt Reeves. Variety report that Reeves – director of ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ and its upcoming sequel ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ – has ‘committed’ to take the helm on the troubled but highly anticipated DCEU movie.
