Following the success of Warner Bros. Man of Steel at the box office, speculation immediately arose that the studio would fast-track a Justice League movie featuring Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and other D.C. superheroes. (The movie website IMDb lists Justice League as a 2015 release.) But Henry Cavill, who plays Superman in Man of Steel, put a damper on the rumors on Tuesday when he said, “It’s a very tough one to do because the DC Comic heroes are all god-like in their power. … It has to be done very delicately, with a lot of thought. So, it won’t be right away. I hope it’s not, anyway. It may take some time of building up other movies and other characters and introducing them together in one way or another.” One of the problems may be that both Superman and Batman played out “dark” scenarios in their last appearances on screen. But Josh Wigler, entertainment editor for Comic Book Resources, commented in an interview with USA Today last week, “A Justice League movie needs to be huge, bright and fun. It needs to be very broad and powerful, with realism being a minor consideration. I don’t want to know the details of how the Flash’s suit fits in his ring, I just want to see it popping out. What The Avengers has taught us is that big, pop-oriented action is what’s right for superhero team-ups.”
