Warner Bros. has announced that Zack Snyder’s two-part Justice League film will start shooting on April 11. That’s mere days after the opening of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice—and the news comes after several weeks of speculation and uproar overs rumors that the studio was worried about Snyder’s Batman v Superman.
Setting a start date so soon after the release of that film may not guarantee its quality, but it absolutely shows the studio’s confidence that it’s going to be a success. It also suggests that Snyder is the man Warner Bros. wants to continue to drive the train.
Entertainment Weekly, a publication formerly owned by Warner Bros.’ parent company Time Warner, broke the news so it’s as official as it gets. Filming will take place at “Warner Bros. Leavesden studios in southeast England, as well as various locations around London and in Iceland.” for its eventual release on November 17, 2017.
*Correction: A previous version of this story said EW was currently owned by Time Warner. That’s no longer the case. They used to be but now they’re owned by Time Inc., a different company. That change has been made.
