Justice League, the first big-screen film to star to the legendary superteam, will finally hit theaters later this week. Because of that, the film's stars have been busy with seemingly endless promotion. That means lots of press questions, and one of them is on the minds of many fans: Who should the League fight next?
POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD
A Justice League sequel, regardless of what form it takes, is inevitable. The first film's not out yet, but it's expected to be a hit, and Warner Bros. has invested a lot in what we call the DC Extended Universe. The villain in this film appears to be Steppenwolf, a New God from Apokolips who seems like a set-up to welcome the Big Bad of the New Gods: Darkseid.
Here's the thing, though: Darkseid's kinda the ultimate villain of the DC Universe. You bring him in this early, and you might create a situation in which there's nowhere to go but down.
We still don't know how this will all play out exactly (unless you're among the lucky few who've seen the film already), but stars Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) and Ezra Miller (The Flash) were recently asked by The Toronto Sun who they'd most like to see the League fight in the sequel. Miller, in particular, had an intriguing answer.
“The Injustice League. I think I can speak for everyone in the League when I say that we’re extremely excited by the prospect of continuing this journey. We don’t really know for sure, and we’re usually the last people to find out, but… each of the heroes in this movie has specific nemeses, and I think seeing some incarnation of the Injustice League (which includes Lex Luthor, Joker, Deathstroke, and more) would be something that DC fans would be pretty stoked about.”
As Miller said, sometimes the stars of these films have no idea where they're headed next until they get handed a script, so it's hard to tell where this will go next at the moment. That said, the DCEU already has characters like Lex Luthor, Joker, and Harley Quinn, and according to Uproxx, one rumored post-credits scene in the film involves Show Spoiler Deathstroke (set to be played by Joe Manganiello) breaking Luthor out of jail . So it's not out of the question for that to be the next big fight.
