Meet the JUSTICE LEAGUE: Which Heroes Are In, Who Was Left Out and Who Might Make a Cameo?

As you can see from the above image, not everyone who’s historically been in DC’s Justice League will make it into Warner Bros. Justice League in 2015. The only confirmed creative type on the picture is screenwriter Will Beall (Gangster Squad) as no director or cast is in place yet, but it looks as if we might have a solid core of characters we can expect to see on screen.  We posted an extensive list of possible superheroes a couple of weeks ago, along with the rumors of the movie’s villain and source material.  That list has been whittled down considerably.  Hit the jump to see who made the cut, who missed out and who might pop up as a cameo.

justice-league-movieThe reliable troop at Latino Review report that the following costumed crime-fighters will form the core of Justice League:

Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and The Flash

Not exactly earth-shattering news.  What’s more interesting is who might also be making an appearance, either as a brief cameo or as a possible credits scene with lead-ins to the inevitable sequel.  The article reports that Aquaman and the Martian Manhunter have the highest possibility of a cameo, with Hawkman rounding out the list as the slimmest chance.  Their money and mine go to Manhunter for some extra power and cosmic background.  The League is going to need all the help they can get to go up against Darkseid, so we’ll see how this plays out (sorry, Green Arrow).

Also, it’s a shame that the female superheroes are once again outnumbered.  While The Avengers was light on gender equality on screen, Justice League has a chance to attract more female fans by leveling the playing field a bit.  Don’t get me wrong, Wonder Woman is an essential member of the team, but there has been nary a mention of Black Canary, Zatanna or Hawkgirl.  It looks like Justice League is sticking with the original members.  Let’s hope it’s a successful adaptation that has a chance to add some variety further down the line.

Who would you be excited to see in Justice League?  For that matter, who would you like to see play the core characters?  Let us know in the comments!
