Rumor: JUSTICE LEAGUE Movie Villain Revealed?

     December 3, 2012

What can we confirm about Warner Bros.’ Justice League so far? We know Zack Snyder (director of Man of Steel) has a lot to say about how his film fits into the Justice League universe, and that Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises) is reportedly not set to play Batman in the picture. Other than that, we know Will Beall (Gangster Squad) is writing the screenplay which will feature Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash and other heroes. But who will these heroes unite against, exactly? Will it be an army of faceless evildoers, much like the Chitauri in The Avengers? Not likely, since the Marvel sequel will be opening the same year as the DC picture and The Avengers 2 already has a Mad Titan in Thanos. So who in the DC universe could possibly be more powerful? Hit the jump to find out.

Though this is just a rumor at present, possible spoilers clearly follow ahead, so proceed at your own risk. In a recent report from Latino-Review, the guys are pretty confident that they’ve nailed the big baddie for the Justice League team-up. It makes sense, as DC’s got some heavy hitters on the heroic side who are going to need a substantial boss to go up against instead of a bunch of punching bags. So just who is it going to be?

darkseid-justice-leagueNone other than…Darkseid! Originally introduced in 1970, Darkseid has been a primary antagonist of Superman and the Justice League for over 40 years. Outside of the comics, he’s also appeared in television shows like 1984’s Super Friends, the 90s’ Superman: The Animated Series and the 2000s animated versions of Justice League. He also played the major antagonist for the final season of the live-action series, Smallville. Superman aside, for those of you who think the under-powered Batman is toast when it comes to going up against Darkseid, check out the Batman: The Brave and the Bold episode, “Darkseid Descending” to see how that battle plays out.

One of the most powerful characters in the DC universe, the god Darkseid has incredible strength, invulnerability, endurance, immortality, a genius intellect and telekinetic powers. However, his greatest strength and his deadliest weapon is the Omega force, a manipulation of cosmic energy that he directs into Omega Beams (beams that shoot from his eyes and can bend around objects, eliminating whatever they hit from existence) and the Omega Sanction, a banishment to hellish alternative realities. Though Darkseid possesses even more powers than those listed here, he most often likes to work as a manipulator, using his superior brain-power to lure and trick the heroes into doing his bidding. No word yet on if Granny Goodness and the Female Furies will be joining the fun, but Darkseid alone should be a proper villain for Supes and the gang! Let us know what you think about Darkseid in Justice League.
