Now that BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE is practically in theaters, the attention of fans is going to shift towards the highly anticipated JUSTICE LEAGUE. In a chat with Collider, Zack Snyder- who will once again be at the helm- spoke a bit about what that film might be called. Would it be simply JUSTICE LEAGUE? Or perhaps JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA? What about JUSTICE LEAGUE: DAWN OF A DOZEN DC MOVIES?
For now, Snyder says that they’re working simply under the working title JUSTICE LEAGUE.
Right now the working title is Justice League. Actually, Iâ€™m in that phase where Iâ€™ve been drawing logos and Iâ€™ve been drawing title treatments and stuff like that to try and figure out what it means, what Justice League is, visually, so weâ€™ll see if the name evolves with this visual presentation.
Snyder famously works from a very visual-driven perspective. He spoke a bit about what it was like to create the official logo for BATMAN V SUPERMAN, which is something he’s working on now for JUSTICE LEAGUE:
“The Batman v Superman logo I drew so long ago. I know thereâ€™s versions of it that existed anyway, but that one in particular I [drew]. The thing thatâ€™s kinda cool about the Batman suit [and] our Batman logo is that the dimension is the same as the Man of Steel logo, the bottom of the bat. So I said, ‘No, itâ€™s cool. Itâ€™s okay. Itâ€™s mythologically okay.'”
The director also spoke about how the production for JUSTICE LEAGUE should run a little more smoothly than BATMAN V SUPERMAN. Production on the latter was pretty long, and was mired by a sizable delay so that Snyder and his team could re-tool the film in order to make it a better springboard for future DC movies. He expects an easier ride this time.
“The scheduleâ€™s close, itâ€™s not quite as long, but give or take. We have a more efficient machine in England because we have a big backlot that we built for Gotham and Metropolis, so itâ€™ll be easier to photograph than when you have to close down streets. But itâ€™s a beautiful backlot.”
JUSTICE LEAGUE, which will be the first of a two-part saga, is slated to come out on November 17, 2017.
