EXCLUSIVE: We Know Who The Bad Guy Is In 'JUSTICE LEAGUE'
Posted on 12.3.12

Mayimbe here…

So back in October, Ben Fritz over at the L.A. Times reported that Warner Bros is running full steam ahead with getting a Justice League movie on the big screen by summer 2015.

As of this morning, the search is still ongoing for a director and subject to how Man Of Steel performs, shooting should get underway next year. Now in case you been living under a rock the past year, everybody else knows that Marvel is dropping the sequel to The Avengers that summer as well. That is some pretty stiff competition.

In this corner we got Earth’s Mightiest Heroes going up against Thanos the Mad Titan. How will Warners respond? Just WHO will the Justice League face off against?

Not a Titan, but a GOD!

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, Batmanhttp://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_n...es&field-keywords=batman:+arkham+city&x=0&y=0, 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?

Now I’m not going to go into the whole Darkseid wiki backstory because there are other writers out there who can give you way better context on the super villain than I could. Quite frankly, the only experience I have with Darkseid is when Michael Ironside voiced him on Superman: The Animated Series. Remember when Darkseid killed Ben Turpin with his Omega Beams?

Anyway, there you have it folks. Bank on Darkseid raising all sorts of hell for the Justice League. Now as long as Darkseid doesn’t bring the members his corny entourage like Granny Goodness, then we are all good.

In fact, the following picture pretty much sums up Summer 2015.

Pretty cool. I wonder whether we will even see Apokolips. Wouldn't be surprised if he affects the behaviour of humans on Earth and has agents working for him like Bruno Mannheim and Intergang.
 
Wow. That's pretty awesome, but it might be tough to differentiate him from Thanos, whose look actually was copied somewhat from Darkseid (even though I've always found Thanos a bit cooler).
 
Interesting, WB need to hire WETA if they wanna bring this dude to life. I wonder if the New Gods will be involved.
 
Darkseid would like be CGI, but for the voice and mo-cap work, for some reason I think David Harewood would be a good choice.
 
It sounds good and makes much more sense then someone like Maxwell Lord in the now dismantled JLA mortal.

That is a concern, with accusations that WB are copying Marvel, but a JL movie could still be different from the Avengers movie if it does explore Darkseid's character more in-depth like in the comics, instead of him just being the leader of an alien invasion. If they show characters he is involved with on Earth like Mannheim as well as showing New Genesis and exploring that aspect of the story.

Guess they gotta go bigger now, more sci-fi/intergalactic straight off the bat.
 
That's awesome! Unfortunately were going to hear a bunch people saying that DC is ripping off Marvel's The Avengers 2.

Isn't it more likely that Thanos will be in Avengers 3 rather than 2?

Who's David Harewood?

There's no proof to this yet, but I would be happy if it were true. I would rather them have Darkseid in a solo Superman movie first, then save him again for the third JL, though.

This opinion is wrong.
 
Its abit ambitious of WB, i expect a post credit at the end of MOS for Darkseid. Still no director just a script.
 
This is cool and all, but where the heck is the news on the director?
 
This opinion is wrong.

Yeah you look at a movie like "Superman/Batman: Apocalypse" you had Darkseid, Granny Goodness, the Female Furies, Big Barda, Supergirl, Wonder Woman and the Amazons etc. all linked...Basically, Darkseid brings people together.
