For me, there is a trilogy of films that I rely on. Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, Y League of Justice they’re a continuity, and within that three-movie arc there’s a consistent tone. Frankly, it was meant to be the basis for two other [Justice League] movies, it’s not that those movies are ever going to be photographed, I don’t see that happening, and it stays true to that concept. It was meant to be like Lord of the Rings and not just once. That’s the way I think about it.
