Back in October 2014, Warner Bros. announced release dates for a whopping 10 DC movies, spanning from this year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to the standalone Aquaman dated for 2018. Also on that list were not one but two Justice League movies, named Part One and Part Two and scheduled for release in 2017 and 2019. But now, according to producer Deborah Snyder, there is only one Justice League movie — the one director Zack Snyder and his gang of heroes are currently shooting.
Last week, Warner Bros. invited a group of reporters to the set of Justice League for an advance look at all the gadgets, costumes, and, of course, the heroes who’ll be uniting to take on the villainous Steppenwolf in the upcoming blockbuster. During that set visit, reporters asked Deborah Snyder about the possible two-parter, and she emphasized that Justice League will stand alone.
“We were only ever planning and we are only doing Justice League,” Deborah Snyder told reporters, via Vulture. “Just Justice League. One movie.” When reporters followed up, asking if it would be one movie split into two parts, she said, “No.”
So, according to Snyder, the upcoming Justice League is officially one complete story, but that doesn’t mean the scheduled 2019 movie isn’t happening. Maybe the 2017 Justice League is like The Avengers, and the 2019 movie will be a sequel story with the same characters, a la Age of Ultron. Or maybe it’s not happening at all. As for Zack Snyder, who was previously announced as the director of Justice League Part Two, he told Vulture, “I think we still have a release date… As far as I know.”
