Director Zack Snyder opened up about the scope of the Justice League's role in "Batman v Superman," now that we know team members The Flash, Cyborg and Aquaman will appear in the movie, alongside main players Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman.
"As far as the other Justice League characters go, they play a very small role," Snyder revealed on the Hall of Justice podcast. "It’s really just a whisper they exist. Except for Wonder Woman, we see her really well. But really, the movie is about Batman and Superman. And we really take time with them and we really drill down on the why of them and what they stand for and their beliefs and them as characters. That’s pretty much the why of the movie. But again as I said, it does begin the conversation about these guys are out there."
"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" hits theaters on March 25, followed by the Snyder-directed "Justice League: Part One" in 2018.
