Does Ruben Fleischer know who’s directing Justice League?

Gangster Squad director reveals a name

The ongoing Justice League rumours continue apace, with Gangster Squad director Ruben Fleischer seemingly confirming the director in an interview with Screen Crush.

When the topic of Justice League was broached, Fleischer said that he’d like to direct a big superhero movie, but that it wouldn’t be the DC Comics team-up movie.

When asked, ‘Why not?’, Fleischer responded, “Well that’s something that Zack Snyder is going to wind up doing.”

Screen Crush say that they approached Snyder’s reps for comment to no avail.

Right now, we’re filing this firmly under ‘Rumour’. It could easily be a throwaway comment from Fleischer, who’ll obviously be aware that Snyder is shepherding the latest Superman outing, Man Of Steel, to the big screen.

At this stage, it’s as likely to be a prediction as a confirmation.

Man Of Steel hits cinemas on 14 June 2013.

      I've been saying it since day one that Zack Snyder will be given the gig once Man Of Steel is released, he's really the only logical choice at this stage. I just hope Jonah Nolan and David Goyer are brought in to tackle the script.

      they really need to find someone else for this. Marvel have done so well at finding diverse, interesting and above all talented directors for their movies, Warners/DC should use a little more imagination. they need to make a Kenneth Branagh or Joss Whedon type choice to make the stand out epic JLA has the potential to be.

      The question is; who would play Batman?

      If Warner Bros get their way probably Armie Hammer.

      @dangoodfellow we don't need a director like Joss Whedon or Kenneth Branagh as the film will definitely end up being exactly the same as a Marvel film. We need it to take a different approach. I don't know who I'd have to direct but we definitely need something different to the Marvel-verse other wise what is the point to making it.
