Fasten your seatbelts buckaroos, the DC Cinematic Universe is quickly becoming a reality with today’s announcement that Justice League Part 1 will begin filming on April 11, two weeks after the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
“The idea that we could begin to boot up a Justice League concept was a cool thing. It was a little bit of an ‘about time’ moment, and I don’t blame [the studio] for feeling that way, because it’s a long time coming. But I do feel like it’s a little bit of a creative hurdle. It seems like an easy thing to do at first glance, the idea that, ‘Oh, we just get the rest of the superheroes in there.’ But you have to [establish] a world where they can exist,” said Zack Snyder to EW.
All the members of the Justice League will make cameos in Batman v Superman (Ezra Miller as the Flash, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg) as Snyder builds towards a battle with Darkseid.
According to the EW report, Justice League will shoot at the Warner Bros. Leavesden studios in southeast England, as well as various locations around London and in Iceland.
