Will Warner Bros. win comic-con again this year with the announcement of Justice League filming back-to-back with their current project Batman vs Superman which begins filming next month?
A “trusted source” tells Latino Review that the upcoming project Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be working on later this year will in fact be Justice League. They also speculate that Batman vs Superman will be filming back-to-back with Justice League just like the Pirates of The Caribbean films and The Lord of The Rings trilogy and this explains all of the bizarre and frequent casting rumors.
Latino Review listed out a couple of reasons why shooting the movies back-to-back would make sense:
- To maximize everyone’s schedules. Ben Affleck is a busy man, Henry Cavill is in-demand, and Johnson is a workaholic. Not to mention Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, and the rest of the unannounced cast are no slouches either.
- Because Batman vs Superman is going to end with an insane cliffhanger/teaser that leads right into Justice League and, like those other back-to-back productions, they want to be able to deliver the second film within a year to strike while the iron is hot. Could this very aggressive approach be how DC intends to pull the rug right out from under rival Marvel Studios?
Latino Review says that this news comes from a “combination of insider information and good old-fashioned speculation from folks who’ve been in the game a long, long time.” This is not a confirmation just a rumor, take it as such. Tell me, would you like this to happen or not?
