The fate of the world isn’t the only thing at stake when Justice League hits theaters this November. When Batman and Wonder Woman round up the world’s greatest superheroes, they’ll also have to rescue Warner Bros.’ superhero franchise from possible extinction.

In the most recent episode of Meet the Movie Press, Variety journalist Justin Kroll revealed that Warner Bros. is waiting to see how Zack Snyder/Joss Whedon’s Justice League performs before moving forward with more movies, in particular the Flash-centric Flashpoint.

“I’ve heard they’ve slowed that search down to see how this film does,” Kroll told hosts Jeff Sneider and Simon Thompson. While Kroll acknowledged that James Wan’s Aquaman is on the way and Wonder Woman 2 already set for December 2019, other films like Cyborg and Man of Steel 2 haven’t yet entered production due to the uncertainty of Justice League. “I’ve heard, ‘Let’s see how this film does before we go forward on those movies.’”

Earlier this year at San Diego Comic-Con, DC and Warner Bros. announced a full slate of movies, including Batgirl, Shazam!, The Batman, and Flashpoint, a Flash-centric movie that could potentially change the DC movie continuity forever.
