Rumor: Possible Line-Up, Character Descriptions, and Cameos for JUSTICE LEAGUE

     January 2, 2013

And the Justice League rumors keep flowing.  Last month, we reported that the villain might be Darkseid, and that the storyline could be based on the issues #183 – 185 of Justice League America, which “involves Darkseid planning the destruction of Earth by blasting it with a ray that’ll move Apokolips (Darkseid’s planet) into the Earth’s place.”  Today, a new rumor has emerged about who will be in the League aside from the obvious choices (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern).  The list also includes brief character descriptions and cameos.

Hit the jump for the possible line-up, brief character descriptions, and cameos.  Justice League opens in 2015.

• Superman is essentially the same character from Man of Steel, and Zack Snyder is consulting regarding the writing of the character.

• Batman: The strategist of the group. Batman doesn’t really want to be involved with these super powered beings he considers too powerful. Easily the most complex written.

• Wonder Woman: She has only been in man’s world a few short months. The Wonder Woman script Michael Goldenberg is developing will be set before the Justice League movie.

• Green Lantern: Will be Ryan Reynold’s character from the Green Lantern movie, but will be freshly written with a more serious tone.

• Flash: The most popular hero in civilian eyes who loves media attention, but when called upon is very serious.

• Martian Manhunter: Alien who has lived on Earth in secret for over a hundred years who has knowledge of Darkseid and his reign.

• Aquaman: Will be the King of Atlantis who has a key role in the film.

• There will also be a heavy military presence in the film which in future rewrites could include characters featured in Man of Steel or even Amanda Waller (Angela Bassett) of which neither are included in the first draft.

• Alfred Pennyworth is in the film in a minor appearance.

• Lois Lane is also in the film in a cameo.

• Darkseid’s Elite will be featured who go up against the Justice League early on in the film.

I find this list dubious for several reasons.  First, I’ve never heard of Cosmic Book News, so I can’t trust them until they have a positive track record (as opposed to a site like Latino Review, whose rumors have turned out to be true).  Secondly, I don’t know how firm this story can possibly be until a director is brought on board.  Will Beale is writing the script, but a director will likely bring their own ideas for the story.  Also, how can Green Lantern be the same character from the movie, but now “freshly written”?  Does that mean it’s the same backstory but a different attitude?

Perhaps this is all true, but for the moment, I would take this rumor with a lot of salt.
