Warner Bros. Sets up 'Justice League' for 2015, Same Summer as 'Avengers 2'

Summer 2015 looks like it could bring the comic book movie genre to its penultimate showdown. The L.A. Times is reporting that Warner Bros. is looking to release their long-gestating Justice League movie the same summer as Avengers 2.

There is still no director attached to the project, though a script from Will Beall has been written. Plot details are few but the lineup is said to include Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and The Flash.

The article confirms that WB wanted Christopher Nolan to produce the DC Comics team-up, but he declined. Nolan is serving as producer on the upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel.

While there is no official confirmation yet, it is believed that WB will look to carry Henry Cavill's Superman from Man of Steel into the Justice League movie.

WB then plans to spin-off the characters into their own franchises, post-2015.

Avengers 2 is slated for a May 1, 2015 release, so one would presume WB would look to release Justice League sometime around July or August to avoid direct competition.

Plans to have the Justice League occupy the same summer as Avengers 2 raises the obvious question: Are two superhero team-ups too many for one summer?
