This isn’t a huge shock, given we’ve been assuming this was the plan, but here’s confirmation.
It looks like WB is putting all their eggs in Zack Snyder’s basket. I’m not sure that’s the choice is have made, although there were a lot of good things about Man of Steel.
What do you think?

Warner Bros. is lining up a super-slate for the next few years, as it has set a “Justice League” movie to follow the Batman-Superman movie, the studio has confirmed.
WB has locked in Zack Snyder to direct, the helmer of “Man of Steel” and its sequel, which goes into production next month. The script for the third pic in the series is currently in development.
“Justice League” currently has no release date, though the Batman-Superman film is set for May 6, 2016.
Like Disney’s “The Avengers,” which brings together some of Marvel’s most popular heroes, “Justice League” culls the biggest superheroes from the DC universe. Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are staples of the Justice League.
Henry Cavill will reprise his role as Superman in the Batman-Superman pic, with Ben Affleck as Batman and Gal Gadot tapped to play Wonder Woman.
