Rumor: Possible Source Material for JUSTICE LEAGUE Movie

     December 13, 2012

While other DC movies have loosely based their arcs on comic books, the inspiration is still there.  Batman Begins draws on Batman: Year One, The Dark Knight pulls from The Long Halloween, and The Dark Knight Rises was influenced by No Man’s Land.  Earlier this month, we reported the rumor that the villain of the Justice League movie would be Darkseid, a foe certainly worthy of a superhero team-up.  Today, we may have learned where screenwriter Will Beale (Gangster Squad) is looking for his screenplay.

Hit the jump for more.  Justice League is due out in 2015.

According to Latino Review, Justice League will be based on some part on issues #183 – 185 of Justice League America.  Per Latino Review:

In a nutshell, plotwise, the three issue arc 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.

So it’s the intergalactic supervillain’s equivalent of “Get out of my seat.”  Again, if this is the plot, it’s certainly worthy of gathering Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and The Flash to work together (assuming these are the superheroes that will feature in the movie; I’m curious to see if Justice League will also include Aquaman and Martian Manhunter).

Just like the other DC movies, this could be a very loose adaptation.  And keep in mind that this is just a rumor.  Back when The Dark Knight Rises was in early production, it was rumored that the source material would be the graphic novel “Prey”.  Nevertheless, Latino Review has a fairly solid track record (they called Thanos appearing in The Avengers), so we shouldn’t write this rumor off.
