Zack Snyder - Zack Snyder to helm Justice League

Zack Snyder is due to direct 'Justice League'.

The filmmaker has been confirmed to helm the superhero blockbuster, which will see Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman join forces to fight crime, and is expected to arrive in theatres as early as 2018 following on from as yet untitled sequel to 'Man of Steel'.

Greg Silverman, Warner Bros.' production president, revealed to the Wall Street Journal: ''It will be a further expansion of this universe. 'Superman vs Batman' will lead into 'Justice League'.''

A script is currently in development and Silverman confirmed they were currently casting half-robot hero Cyborg, with Broadway star Ray Fisher rumoured to be a hot favourite for the role.

Other superhero characters who appear in the original DC Comics include Aquaman, Flash and Green Lantern.

The all-star cast in the Justice League universe already includes Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot and Amy Adams, with Henry Cavill reprising his role as Superman and Ben Affleck making his debut as Batman.

Warner also said there were no plans for a Wonder Woman spin-off featuring Gadot's Wonder Woman just yet, but it is a definite possibility for the future.

Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing, said: ''That is our hope. With the right script, that could be viable. The world is ready for her.''
