The epic superhero team-up Justice League is expected to bring together DC Comics most popular characters Batman and Superman, as well as Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and The Flash to defeat the world’s greatest threat.

Warner Bros. bought DC Comics in 2009, folding the comic book company into the studio and re-launching it as DC Entertainment to better manage how its characters wind up on the big and small screens. The CW will air Arrow, based on the Green Arrow character this fall, but the studio hasn’t greenlit any new films since Man of Steel, which bows summer 2013. Other pics based on Wonder Woman and The Flash also are in development, but are only in script stages.

Justice League won’t likely be ready for release until summer 2015, which could put it up right against Marvel’s Avengers 2, which has Joss Whedon returning to direct. Source: Variety
