A Justice League movie will follow Batman vs. Superman, and Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen, Man of Steel) is on board to direct again. Warner Bros' president of worldwide production Greg Silverman tells The Wall Street Journal that plans are in motion, with Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Gal Gadot set to reprise their roles as Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. "It will be a further expansion of this universe," says Silverman. "Superman vs. Batman [sic] will lead into Justice League."

A Justice League film that would unite several DC superheroes has been rumored for some time, but this represents the first official confirmation. Comic book action fans may have a while to wait, however — with Batman vs. Superman delayed until May 6th, 2016, the Journal reports that the Justice League movie may not come until 2018. The Hollywood Reporter, on the other hand, has sources that suggest a 2017 release date, and claims that Snyder will shoot the pair back-to-back.
