There is a lot we think we know about “Justice League,” and not a lot we know for sure. It’s been rumored that the villain is Darkseid and the story for the film will be based on comics issues 183-185, but Warner Bros. has neither confirmed nor denied either story. Now a new report claims to have the list of the character being featured in the film, though we’re going to have to take it with a grain of salt.
Cosmic Book News has a list of DC characters from Superman to Alfred Pennyworth who will allegedly be featured in the new movie. Though none really come as a shock, it’s still debatable if this will be the lineup in “Justice League.”
– 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.
“Justice League” is due out in the summer of 2015. Thus far, no director has been chosen to helm the project, though many names have been rumored for the role. “Gangster Squad” scribe Will Beall is currently writing the script.
