Rumor: Darkseid will be our villain in Justice League movie

— Posted by The Amazing Anthony

 

Be warned, this is a rumor. Right now the word on the web is that the name of the villain for the Justice League has been leaked. The rumor circulating is that Jack Kirby creation Darkseid will be the main baddie in the film that causes <del >Earth’s Mightiest heroesThe League to join forces.

 

After some persistent snooping, we have exclusively learned that the main baddie is none other than…

DARKSEID!

Yes folks, Darkseid. The supreme monarch of the planet Apokolips and the greatest threat to the DC Universe.

It’s kind of obvious if you really think about it. I mean for Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and others to come together in a summer tentpole movie to face a threat, well, that threat better be planetary. Who were you expecting? Lex Luthor?

 

I’ve known Latino Review to be pretty accurate with this sort of stuff and while there’s no official confirmation from Warner Bros., I’m going to treat this as fact until I’m told otherwise.

 

Darkseide makes sense. With the recent reboot of DC comics’ titles you’ll know that the Snyder and company were privy to some interesting details regarding the direction of the characters ahead of the general public, hence the lack of briefs in Snyders’ superman design. Darkseide was the first villain that the league encountered together in the comics and I fully expect them to continue their newfound reliance on the source material for some decent stories. Darkseide is the ultimate threat for the league and is definitely a threat that neither member would be able to overcome on their own.

    I kinda hope this isn’t true. It would seem weird to have the biggest threat and baddest baddie the JLA has ever faced right there in the first movie. I like the approach that the Avengers took where their equivalent baddie, Thanos, won’t be seen til the seocnd movie. Once they win the day and defeat Thanos in the first movie, everything after that will seem not-as-big-a-deal. Unless he is involved in the set-up films leading up to the JLA movie.

      I hear ya, but so far the DC Universe hasn’t delivered like Marvel has. They pretty much have to come out with both barrels now or die on the vine I think.

      I thought about this too but had a hard time coming up with other characters/villains they could face. Braniac? I think that’ll be saved for the Man of Steel sequel. Lobo? Legion of Doom? I just am not familiar with the other JL villains. Despero?

    The whole Justice League project seems so obscure and vague. I hope Man of Steel turns out to be good, otherwise I don’t have a fucking clue what they are going to do in order to compete with big guns like Avengers 2 and Star Wars 7.
