ScreenCrush: There have been rumors that ‘Man of Steel‘ director Zack Snyder and Ruben Fleischer (‘Zombieland’) were frontrunners to direct Warner Bros. planned ‘Justice League‘ movie. Today, we spoke with Fleischer about those rumors and asked about whether he still has his eyes set on ‘Justice League’ he revealed he’s no longer in the running. And why? Because he says Snyder already has the job.
As the ‘Man of Steel’ buzz gets stronger and stronger, it shouldn’t be surprising that Warner Bros. is looking for Snyder to return and direct the ‘Justice League’ movie. Up until now, Synder has issued a curt “no comment” whenever asked about the reports but it looks like Fleischer – Snyder’s friend and fellow candidate for the ‘Justice League’ gig – may have outed him.
