Superman Homepage wrote:Will Darkseid be the Main Villain in a Justice League Movie?
LatinoReview.com claim to have discovered who everyone pretty much thought would be the big villain of the "Justice League" movie reportedly set to be released in 2015.
"Yes folks, Darkseid. The supreme monarch of the planet Apokolips and the greatest threat to the DC Universe.
It's kind of obvious if you really think about it. I mean for Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and others to come together in a summer tentpole movie to face a threat, well, that threat better be planetary. Who were you expecting? Lex Luthor?"
It isn't stated how they know this or who their source is, but it does seem pretty obvious that Darkseid would be the choice villain to unite the biggest superheroes of the DC Universe. It's what Geoff Johns did for his New 52 relaunch of the "Justice League" comic book.
Back in June Variety reported that Warner Bros. had hired "Gangster Squad" script writer Will Beall to write a Justice League movie. It's speculated that Warner Bros. are scouting around for a director, while they wait to see how "Man of Steel" performs at the box office before giving "Justice League" the green light.
Might as well call this "Man of Steel 2 with Friends" considering Darkseid is a Superman villain.
