While he is apparently signed for five movies as Batman (it's not clear if his Suicide Squad cameo counts towards that) rumors surfaced over the summer that Justice League would be his last time in the cape and cowl, but he shot those down with comments at San Diego Comic-Con, indicating that he's "the luckiest guy in the world" to play Batman. I hope he decides to stay on as Batman, the DC universe is already unstable and a change in actor isn't something it needs.
The early reactions are in and it seems that Justice League continues down the path laid out by Wonder Woman and proves to be a tonally fun film with breakout performances. While Gadot and Wonder Woman are a big reason for optimism in the franchise, following its critically acclaimed, zeitgeist-grabbing box office success, there's also a lot of excitement about the new characters, especially The Flash.
Justice League is going to be a thrilling event for sure and there are many things that need to be done right so that both comic fans and general audiences can equally enjoy and embrace this film. And I love the reality that you have this universe that is so inverted from one that we know.
The Justice League hype train has officially left the station.

After Justice League, Momoa's Aquaman next appears in his own solo film (set to release in 2018) from director James Wan. Gal Gadot, who plays Wonder Woman, has reportedly insisted Ratner have no connection with any future Wonder Woman film.
For the two DC veterans, standing together in Dawn of Justice was cool, but seeing the entire Justice League in costume for the first time was "epic", Affleck says. Writer Geoff Johns and producer Jon Berg had already been brought in to brighten Justice League and overhaul the wider DC slate with a more optimistic tone.
"You're standing next to Batman and Wonder Woman. I'm so thrilled to do it", he said. With a cosmic and world-ending threat to face, and Superman now deceased, it is best to go all-in on Steppenwolf instead of having multiple villains, or spending half the movie planting seeds for future foes. Filming was done at the height of terrorism threat from Islamic State and other militant jihadists around the world and perceived East-West return to Cold War hostilities, with Russian Federation and Vladimir Putin pitched as global villain.
"I wasn't laughing", Cavill chimes in.
