6/17/2014

Hold on to your tights and your capes, the upcoming Justice League movie has finally set a director, and in an unsurprising move, Zack Snyder will be helming the massive project. The news was announced by Warner Bros. president of worldwide production Greg Silverman.

Justice League, DC's answer to Marvel's The Avengers, features the iconic characters Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and, presumably, Green Lantern, Flash, Aquaman, and the Martian Manhunter.

PICS: Role Call - Who Got Hired In Hollywood?

Snyder is currently working on the Man Of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman, and will begin working on Justice League after production finishes.

In Batman vs Superman, Henry Cavill reprises his role as Superman, while Ben Affleck is set to play Batman, and Gal Gadot, best known for her work in the Fast & Furious franchise, will play Wonder Woman.

They are all expected to return in those role for Justice League. There is no casting news yet on who will play the league's multitude of other heroes.
