Following yesterdays shocking reveal regarding DC’s upcoming film slate, the website Badass-Digest claimed an inside source revealed details on the villains set to be used in the upcoming two-part Justice League film as well as the role of Green Lantern in the films.
So what are they claiming? Brianiac, Darkseid, and Green Lantern being appearing at the tail end of the first film as a messenger to warn the heroes about Darkseid.
“BvS will end with the Justice League either assembled or all onscreen, having figured out the big threat facing them. There’s been another villain working behind the scenes of that movie and, as Latino Review reported, it’s Brainiac. That’s your Justice League villain, and my sources tell me that he’ll be defeated by a team that is made up of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Aquaman and The Flash. Then at the end of the movie Green Lantern shows up and is like, “Guys, there’s a big bad guy from space coming your way,” and the Justice League is like, “Nah, brah, we got it already,” and Green Lantern is like, “Dudes. DUDES. It’s Darkseid.”
All of this shit apparently springs from Superman’s Kryptonian beacon – that’s how Brainiac finds Earth, at least. Aquaman’s story is going to kick off from the World Engine laying waste to Atlantis. I understand that General Zod’s corpse plays a big role in BvS – all of the DC Movieverse is going to spring from the events of Man of Steel, so it makes some sense to have Snyder helming the core pictures. “
Obviously this report comes with a huge grain of salt due to the website claiming insider details of a film that was only announced hours prior, but the information revealed has indeed been already been rumored for some time and it could be 100% possible.
The idea of having Part 1 end with a cliffhanger set up for Part 2 makes far more sense than it would to have two halves get released so far apart.
Justice League Part One is currently set for a 2017 release date.
