Ruben Fleischer's name was rumored for the big budget flick starring the DC superheroes some time ago, and he was recently asked if he has any interest in the movie.
Fleischer's response is interesting as he does state he does have interest in directing a big superhero film, but not Justice League.
"Well that’s something that Zack Snyder is going to wind up doing," he told ScreenCrush.
Did Fleischer just let the cat out of the bag?
Could be, as it's reported that he and Zack Snyder are friends as well as Fleisher worked on the Gangster Squad movie, of which the writer, Will Beall, wrote the Justice League movie script.
Zack Snyder's name has been on our DC Entertainment's list to direct the Justice League movie for quite a while, and is my personal pick to helm the movie as well.
Just earlier today, our source told us, "Zack Snyder will NOT be Directing Justice League. He will be back for a 2nd installment of Man of Steel though in 2017! May be Producing Justice League!"
