Take this all with a grain of salt, but there’s a pretty solid chance it could be true. Cosmic Book News is claiming that they got the skinny on the upcoming Justice League movie’s line-up. We already reported that the film would feature Darkseid and that it will probably be based on the classic Justice League Story from issues #183 – 185 of Justice League America, where Darkseid tries to destroy Earth by blasting it with a ray that’ll move Apokolips (Darkseid’s planet) into the Earth’s place.”
What makes me a little skeptical about the list of team members that leaked today is the descriptions. It feels like someone might have tried too hard on this. Still, what do you think?
• 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.
