Batman vs. Superman was recently revealed to be two hours and 31 minutes long, pretty lengthy for a superhero movie. But even despite that runtime, director Zack Snyder still had to trim some things out of the movie, namely an extended cameo from late night host Jimmy Kimmel. Kimmel and his guest Ben Affleck debuted the footage on last night’s post-Oscars Jimmy Kimmel Live and it seems as if Batman and Superman may have found a common enemy.
Like single-cell organisms slowly complexifying and dragging themselves out of the primordial soup that was early Earth, details on the hotly-anticipated upcoming Justice League movie have begun to collect. Some specifics of the film were self-evidently obvious from the start — there will be a league, they will spread justice, the usual cast of characters including Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), and Aquaman (Jason Momoa) will appear — and some were revealed right out the gate, such as that the Justice League project will screen in two separate parts, both of which will be directed by Zack Snyder. Now, Warner Bros. has set progress on their hopeful Avengers competitor in motion. An exclusive over at Entertainment Weekly breathlessly relates that Justice League will commence principal photography on April 11.
