Justice League Movie Rumored To Be In Its Own Standalone Universe

Back in June we first told you that Zack Snyder's new Superman movie, Man of Steel, would spearhead a new DC shared movie universe, which was confirmed by another website, THR, starring Henry Cavill as Superman in the 2015 Justice League Movie.

Director Zack Snyder was even asked about this at the recent San Diego Comic-Con, to which he didn't deny, but said it's a possibility depending on how things go with the Man of Steel.

And just a couple days ago our source got back to us with news on the 2016 Batman movie reboot that Warner Bros. wanted to use the same actors for all their movies, "DC Entertainment have thought long and hard about having several different universes, but through the success of Marvel, have decided that it wouldn't make sense to the audience and financially to have numerous actors playing the same roles year by year."

However, it was said a couple days prior to our news that the Justice League movie is being written as if it is a standalone movie.

Batman-On-Film has apparently received word from an insider that "It's being produced as if NOTHING else exists." They go on to state that the insider says the possibility of different universes has "at least" been considered.

Again, Batman-On-Film's rumor comes a couple days prior to our own. I'm thinking this was made known in case Zack Snyder's Man of Steel movie does poorly — or to steer people off course. But really, it would be a bad decision on the part of Warner Bros. to go with all different universes for their movies, unless, again, the Man of Steel is not looking so super.

We were also told that the original seven founding members were to be a part of the Justice League movie with appearances by second tier characters.
