Fresh off news that Warner Bros. is developing almost a dozen DC comic-book movies, some new intel is making the rounds about which arcs they could be adapting in Justice League 1-2.
We know they’re making a two-part Justice League film, and Badass Digest has added some additional context to a recent Latino Review report laying out which villains will reportedly be featured in the team-up and how they’re attracted to Earth. Long story short: Brainiac in part one and Darkseid in part two — and Green Lantern will be introduced to warn Earth’s heroes about Darkseid.
Check out an excerpt from Badass Digest’s report below:
[Batman v Superman] will end with the Justice League either assembled or all onscreen, having figured out the big threat facing them. There's been another villain working behind the scenes of that movie and, as Latino Review reported, it's Brainiac. That's your Justice League villain, and my sources tell me that he'll be defeated by a team that is made up of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Aquaman and The Flash. Then at the end of the movie Green Lantern shows up and is like, "Guys, there's a big bad guy from space coming your way," and the Justice League is like, "Nah, brah, we got it already," and Green Lantern is like, "Dudes. DUDES. It's Darkseid."
All of this shit apparently springs from Superman's Kryptonian beacon - that's how Brainiac finds Earth, at least. Aquaman's story is going to kick off from the World Engine laying waste to Atlantis. I understand that General Zod's corpse plays a big role in BvS - all of the DC Movieverse is going to spring from the events of Man of Steel, so it makes some sense to have Snyder helming the core pictures.
When they were making Man of Steel, director Zack Snyder seemed to indicate that much of the DC movie universe would evolve from Man of Steel — since it represented the first indication of a larger world of superheroes — so a lot of these points could fit that narrative. Take it with a grain of salt at the moment, but it does make sense.
What do you think? Is this info legit?
