....with today's news of casting Cyborg, it all but seals something I was hesitant to talk about before until it was 'confirmed'. Something that many had mentioned and assumed, but there was no actual 'official' word yet. But this pretty much gives it away.


Yes...this film will act as a launching pad for the Justice League...a la Avengers, with cameos by heroes for future installments. One of the reasons why I didn't want to say it for sure was because there was no official word/news even though it doesn't really come as a surprise, and I didn't know how long they would try to keep it secret et al. They're cameos, after all, so like in Incredible Hulk w/ Stark at the end it could have been something they were saving as a late surprise or the like. And I didn't want to be the first to let the cat out of the bag.

Also...the reason why I found this out a while back was because of the delay...and also why I wasn't sharing that reason for the delay before. The reason for the delay, as I was told, was because they were still negotiating with the actors for those cameos (the 'E' I hinted at before) and future roles…meaning major contracts for multiple JL/character films to follow. They apparently didn't want to move forward until they had more of this secure…so they held off starting production for a few months. So as you can see…seemingly simple reason, but the implications are pretty darn huge. Strangely, it wasn't about Affleck or Eisenberg, or the script, or a lot of things that were assumed.

Technically, that hasn't yet been directly 'confirmed', but it's all but spelled out with the inclusion of Cyborg, and I won't be commenting yet on who else will be appearing. But this is what I was referring to starting back in Feb….

And here…

"o.c.c.m.f.s." - other cameo cast members' future schedules.


So now we all know.
Yup, I gotta say...you're kind of the man, Kal.

As with others, thanks for not being that guy and spoiling, but also for sharing the insight you did without letting it 'out of the bag'.

...can't wait to see the other news that's soon to be coming down!!

Leaning more towards John though I think.

Well, there is a guy in The Avengers who tends to turn green on occasion.

Hmm SHH has the cast listing that includes Momoa on their article about Cyborg. Did they ever confirm that or is it still just a rumor?

Momoa denied it, but he is in talks. Same with Josh Holloway, who was said to be in talks, but had scheduling issues. (Sound familiar?)

I will literally pee a little in my damn pants if that pans out.

And I'm an "old man"; I don't usually nerd out about such stuff, but damn if I am not pumped for where all this is going!

I've thought for a while now that they will be following a similar course to the New 52, using BVS, as a BVS movie, but ALSO setting up the JLA, or at least planing the seeds for the need for them.

Batman will be looking into Superman after the events of MOS, and the potential for much larger, world threatening dangers after the huge first contact events in MOS. Meanwhile, the world is not only recovering from their first contact with aliens, but also being exposed to super powered beings for the first time, and seeing more starting to pop up with the likes of WW and so on.

Prior to this he's been more Gotham focused, what he can do locally, along with some degree of established Batfamily.

Batman is the perfect character for them to do this with because it makes perfect sense to not have to redo his back story. Not only does everyone know who Batman is because he's Batman, but the world just went through some of the biggest films in history covering Batman's back story to one extent or another.

Dude i remember years ago, SHH were the ones to scoop certain cast members of the Justice League Mortal film. I wouldn't be surprised if they know something regarding Momoa and slipped his name into their article for the people that are looking closely.

Plus, The Hollywood Reporter were the ones to originally report that he was in talks for a role in BvS, they're typically (along with Variety) the most reliable place for movie news, i don't think they'd get this wrong.

Same here. I was a kid when the old Aquaman cartoon aired on Sat morning in the 60's.

I just hope, personally, they don't go the JL: War route and replace Aquaman with Shazaam. I was not a fan of that decision as Aquaman's reveal with the White Sharks in the JL New 52 re-launch was pretty frickin' awesome IMO.

Nice! I'm not that old; I grew up with the Super Friends - with the Zan/Jayna Wonder Twins and the other version with Wendy/Marvin/Wonder Dog

Seemingly something that could be scheduled rather easily on the fly amongst eight months of shooting, right? But then when you think about it, if they want to lock these actors in for these roles, you're looking at some seven-ish years or commitment over multiple films, and that's a lot to ask and to negotiate.

So they apparently felt strongly enough about this to push the start of this monster's production by three months while they secured things more (for miniscule parts in THIS movie), which then threw off release by an entire year. I gotta say, that seems like a pretty impressive and decisive commitment to this whole JL/Shared Universe thing, as opposed to the half-assery that many assumed.
Could you confirm or deny the Armie Hammer rumor as Flash?

I wonder if they will announce at comic con that JL will be shot back to back with this. And that Affleck will be directing.
