Has Zack Snyder Officially Agreed To Direct 'Justice League'?

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.

From what I've seen of Man of Steel, he seems to have a really good understanding of balancing the action and the drama of the Superman character so I think he'd be the perfect fit for the Justice League movie. My only problem would be him directing Justice League holding him back from making any future Man of Steel sequels.

well if it follows through we wont see a man of steel 2 film till justice league is done and out the door first so im sure he could do the sequal after it

you know providing they dont exuast the actor n all lol

one reason why man of steel is looks balanced story wise and style wise is the creative team of chris nolan and david s goyer is also behind snyder in the production and writing respectively and they instantly add depth in substance to the overall value of the film.

Not many directors can helm such a large scale film, if Man of Steel is a hit, then give Snyder the reins.

i cannot agree more, avengers was successful because of whedon knowing so much what fans like to see and because he is a fan himself. and it is very tricky and risky to helm such as big project, if it fails, even the story arcs of each character will likely be screwed up because it is a connection movie overall. by the looks of the trailers man of steel will be an explosive success.

Well Zack pretty much nailed it with 300 and Watchmen. So i think hes a great pick for a JL movies.

I saw Watchmen and liked it even though it was a dark film, Snyder was very true to the source material. I would go see a Snyder-directed live-action Justice League film. I'm not sure about Darkseid, though. Or Cyborg. I'm more a fan of the Classic Magnificent Seven line-up. Darkseid could be a cool villain, though..

i hope he would eventually helm that said project but its to early to talk about justice league when only superman and batman are the only characters that are getting success in the big screen, they have to do flash and wonder woman at least. i also hope nolan will still be attached when justice league will get a green light.

before everyone getting all hype up. let's just wait til Man of Steel first. we don't know how the film turn out to be yet, either it's good or bad. if it's good, then Snyder should proceed. if it's bad, then they should find a new director other than Snyder and Nolan
