Warner Bros. should be pleased — their “Justice League” film, tentatively set for sometime in 2015, is getting almost as much fanboy attention as Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers”. That will certainly bode well for the superhero team-up, considering that “The Avengers” was the biggest money maker of 2012.
The latest round of “Justice League” movie rumor comes courtesy of Latino-Review, who reaffirms what we already suspected about the movie — namely that its final superhero roster will consist of JL stalwarts Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and Green Lantern.
Sounds about right. D.C.’s characters, unlike Marvel’s, isn’t spread out over various studios, so they have their pick of who they want to show up. That means, for fans, the big hitters like Batman and Superman. And uh, Green Lantern too, I guess.
This latest news also confirms a previous report from earlier in the month that had the exact same roster dealing with bad guy Darkseid.
Now, as for who will be playing which superhero, and how will they connect with previous superhero movies, that’s a whole ‘nother ballgame…
The site also adds that you may also expect cameo appearances from either Aquaman, The Martian Manhunter, or Hawkman. Or perhaps two. Or all three. Or none. (Hey, that’s why the “may” is in bold, you know.)
Personally I’m hoping for Hawkman. The whole feathers and hawk mask and mace get-up is just so much cooler than a dude who can talk to dolphins, or a Klingon with a fear of fire…
