Director Zack Snyder is to take charge of the long-awaited Justice League movie following his upcoming blockbuster Batman Vs. Superman.

The iconic DC Comics super-team is heading to the big screen for the first time, and the news was confirmed by Warner Bros. boss Greg Silverman in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. While the studio executive refused to give any further details about the project, he divulged, "It will be a further expansion of this universe. Superman vs Batman will lead into Justice League."

A script is still in development and no release date has been set for Justice League, which assembles superheroes including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash and Aquaman. Meanwhile, Snyder is currently working on the Man of Steel sequel, in which Henry Cavill returns as Superman, and is joined by Ben Affleck as Batman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Affleck was previously rumored to be the frontrunner to direct the Justice League film, but he denied the speculation.
