Sequel Buzz: Zack Snyder Moves On From 'Justice League,' Sylvester Stallone Shares 'Escape Plan 3' Update

Sep 21, 2017

Will Zack Snyder direct Justice League 2?

Zack Snyder is back from his work hiatus with a new short film, but he says he's not returning to Justice League following his personal departure earlier this year. "I’m at a place where I feel excited about it and I’m happy for my guys and I love these people that are working on it, and they’re my family and I think they’re doing an amazing job," he told Wired, "but I’ve kind of just let them do their thing."

It's unclear if he'll be involved with the DCEU going forward, however. Many are speculating that he'll remain as a relatively hands off executive producer but won't direct Justice League 2 or Man of Steel 2 or any other future franchise installments. Instead, he'll move on to projects such as The Last Photograph and perhaps his adaptation of The FountainheadJustice League debuts in theaters on November 17.


Escape Plan 3 set video and casting news

Production is underway for the third Escape Plan movie before the release date for Escape Plan 2: Hades has even been set. Not only did Sylvester Stallone share the below Instagram video of the sequel shooting at the same prison as The Shawshank Redemption, but Deadline has confirmed the return of Dave Bautista, who also appears in the video, and Jaime King, who is taking over in Amy Ryan's role from the original starting with part two. 

Deadline also shared the casting of new additions, including Devon Sawa, Harry Shum Jr., Max Zhang and others, as well the full title of Escape Plan 3: Devil's StationThe plot sees Stallone and Bautista's characters helping to break out a member of their team from the sub-titular prison.


Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle gets two new trailers

Dwayne Johnson also took to social media this week to share the second trailer for his upcoming fantasy film Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. While doing so, he referred to himself as "Dwanta Claus," because of the holiday release of the sequel. "This CHRISTMAS the hottest game isn't one you's one that plays YOU," he wrote in a tweet.

There are actually two new spots, though: one new domestic trailer with a frightening snake scene and an international one with a lot more focus on the action and adventure. As Johnson says, the movie hits theaters near Christmas, specifically on December 20.
