Warner Aims to Launch Justice League Film in the Same Year as The Avengers 2

It seems that Warner has decided to be more aggressive in re-establishing their stable of on-screen superheroes, as they are now planning to launch their Justice League film in the same year as Marvel’s sequel to the blockbuster Avengers.

The report came from the LA Times, in which Warner is said to begin shooting the film next year, with the release date expected to be 2015, which is the same year that the Avengers 2 will land in US cinemas.

The odd thing is that Warner’s confidence may be misplaced, as they haven’t really spent as much time and effort as Marvel did when it comes to establishing their various superhero movie franchises – with Green Lantern, Superman, and Batman all having stand alone films of their own. They’d be hard-pressed to start a team up movie that is as coherent as the Avengers, since Marvel had the foresight to tie up the Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America movies so that The Avengers didn’t need any to waste screen time on origins or introductions.
