“Justice League” is not even out in theatres yet and there are already discussions about the “Justice League” sequel.
It was recently revealed that Warner Bros. is already working on the script for the next instalment. This news comes after it was announced that the upcoming DC film will have a runtime of 121 minutes, instead of the previously rumoured 3-hour duration.
It was originally intended for “Justice League: Part 1” and “Justice League: Part 2” to be a 2-part story. However, plans were shelved to make way for a standalone Batman movie and each “Justice League” instalment would also be standalone. “Justice League” officially bring the world’s finest heroes – Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg – together for the first time on the big screen.
Many assumed that Darkseid, the ruler of Apokolips, would be battling the Justice League in their first mission. But it looks like the studio may be holding him out for “Justice League 2” and audiences will just have to be content with Steppenwolf. In speaking with Total Film, J.K. Simmons (Commissioner James Gordon) gave a tease on what we can expect in the sequel.
“Well, Commissioner Gordon wears a trench coat in every scene, so I don’t know that the ‘pumped up’ part is going to be all that evident, especially when you’re standing next to Batman! But this is the first ‘Justice League’ movie – we hope – of a few,” the 62-year-old Oscar-winning actor told the publication.
He added, “They’re working on scripts for ‘The Batman’ and for the next ‘Justice League’ movie. It introduces my incarnation of Commissioner Gordon. I don’t have a lot to do. I feel like I just dipped my toe in the water of who Commissioner Gordon will be.” Judging from what the seasoned actor said, it’s likely that he will be reprising his role Commissioner Gordon for at least 2 more DC films.
“Wonder Woman” was both critically-acclaimed and a hit at the box office. It remains to be seen if “Justice League” can fare better when it debuts in cinemas on 16th November.
