Is Zack Snyder going to direct “Justice League”?


Posted by on

It’s still unclear exactly what Warner Bros. plans to do with its planned “Justice League” film, but the release of Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” on June 14 should give us a good idea. There have been rumors claiming the upcoming Superman film will act as a set-up for a larger DC universe, and it could be because Snyder is going to have a hand in the “Justice League” movie too.

During an interview with Screen Crush, director Ruben Fleischer seemingly confirmed that Snyder will helm “Justice League.” Fleischer’s name had been on a shortlist of directors for the film in 2012, but when he was asked about it, he said, “Well that’s something that Zack Snyder is going to wind up doing.”

It could be that Fleischer doesn’t know what he’s talking about, but he also could be more in the know than we are. Whatever the reason, he no longer seems to be vying for the role of director in the upcoming project.

If “Man of Steel” ends up being as good as it looks, it wouldn’t be much of a stretch to assume that Warner Bros. would look to Snyder to bring back to make sure “Justice League” is a success. After all, he’s confirmed that he paved the road to that movie already.

“I don’t know how ‘Justice League’ is going to be handled. Honestly, I don’t. But ‘The Man of Steel’ exists, and Superman is in it. I don’t know how you’d move forward without acknowledging that,” Snyder said in November. “I can’t really say anything to that, because that’s a big spoiler. I will say, yeah, they trust me to keep them on course.”

There doesn’t seem to be much hope for that rumored Zack Snyder “Star Wars” movie if this “Justice League” news ends up being true. It’s also worth noting that there was a recent report claiming that David Goyer will end up writing or directing “Justice League” — or both. WB’s original plan was to have the ensemble superhero film in theaters by 2015, but it remains to be seen if that’s still the case.

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
