Get your giant grain of salt ready because here comes a JUSTICE LEAGUE rumor!
If true, Cosmic Book News has a heck of a scoop: a look inside the story for the upcoming JUSTICE LEAGUE movie. CBN has laid out who will be involved and how they will interact. All in all, it looks pretty much how you’d expect. Batman seems moody and dark, Superman is the same hero we’ll meet in MAN OF STEEL, The Flash will be a popular and charismatic hero, Aquaman will be…Aquaman. He likes the ocean.
Here’s how CBN puts it:
- Superman is essentially the same character from Man of Steel, and Zack Snyder is consulting regarding the writing of the character.
- Batman: The strategist of the group. Batman doesn’t really want to be involved with these super powered beings he considers too powerful. Easily the most complex written.
- Wonder Woman: She has only been in man’s world a few short months. The Wonder Woman script Michael Goldenberg is developing will be set before the Justice League movie.
- Green Lantern: Will be Ryan Reynold’s character from the Green Lantern movie, but will be freshly written with a more serious tone.
- Flash: The most popular hero in civilian eyes who loves media attention, but when called upon is very serious.
- Martian Manhunter: Alien who has lived on Earth in secret for over a hundred years who has knowledge of Darkseid and his reign.
- Aquaman: Will be the King of Atlantis who has a key role in the film.
- There will also be a heavy military presence in the film which in future rewrites could include characters featured in Man of Steel or even Amanda Waller (Angela Bassett) of which neither are included in the first draft.
- Alfred Pennyworth is in the film in a minor appearance.
- Lois Lane is also in the film in a cameo.
- Darkseid’s Elite will be featured who go up against the Justice League early on in the film
A lot of this lines up with what we’ve already heard about JUSTICE LEAGUE, especially the Darkseid and Superman stuff. As for the rest, it all sounds likely but also vague. Also no suggestion that Batman will be the Batman from Christopher Nolan’s DARK KNIGHT trilogy (a.k.a Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s John Blake)
So many unanswered questions, so much time to blindly speculate!
