Zack Snyder Talks Batman Vs. Superman, Justice League & Robin
Warner Bros. and DC are teaming with Doritos for the "Crash the Superbowl" contest, which will see the winning filmaker of a Doritos Super Bowl commercial working with director Zack Snyder on a DC movie.
Regarding Batman Vs. Superman, back in June the cinematographer on the movie teased an image of Zack Snyder's 19-year-old son Eli with "Boy Wonder" leading many fans to speculate Eli Snyder is playing the sidekick to Ben Affleck's Batman; however, Zack Snyder shoots down the rumor.
"There’s a rumor that my son is [playing] Robin. It’s not true," Snyder said. "Now there are all these images of him that people have made where he’s dressed like Robin. It’s fun to hear and see them."
With so many DC projects in the works, Snyder offers he is mainly focusing on three of them, but is also on board to help out with the rest.
"I’m staying with Batman V Superman and Justice League and Justice League 2 — those are my main responsibilities, as well as producing the other movies," Snyder offered. "That’s the main line. Once you get Justice League, you’re pretty deep in it. But like I was saying, not to be a selfless promoter of our program, what it shows is that we have this giant berth of opportunity with the DC movies now to I think find the opportunities for even young filmmakers to even get involved because there are so many projects."
Here is the current slate of DC movies:
March 25: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
August 5: Suicide Squad
June 23: Wonder Woman
November 17: Justice League, Part 1
March 23: The Flash
July 27: Aquaman
April 5: Shazam
June 14: Justice League, Part 2

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has a March 25, 2016 release starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg with Callan Mulvey, Holly Hunter as Senator Finch and Tao Okamoto as Mercy Graves. Justice League is to follow.
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
