On the heels of Warner Bros. Justice League, The Hollywood Reporter's Borys Kit is claiming that his sources have revealed to him that the director will shoot Batman vs. Superman and Justice League back-to-back and that we may see the latter as early as 2017. He made the claim via his Twitter. Here is what he had to say...
Yes, Zack Snyder will direct Justice League. Yes it will shoot back to back. Likely release date: 2017. Likely announcement: Comic Con.— Borys Kit (@Borys_Kit) April 28, 2014
He went on to confirm the news, when questioned by a follower on Twitter.
@CoolwhipSpecial Back to back: confirmed. Release date: no comment from Warners but my sources say watch for it.— Borys Kit (@Borys_Kit) April 28, 2014
No official announcement has been made by Warner Bros. as of yet, but as Kit has claimed, we could see the announcement come at this summer's Comic-Con.
