We’re going to say that we don’t really think there’s much to this first rumour. That said, it would be interesting to see if a comic book movie could be ‘too on the head’.
According to this report from Tech Times, the script for The Justice League movie is “too good”. What?
Well, apparently it’s too long and much too complex; to the point where it is feared that, in its current state, it would alienate casual cinema goers but will really appeal to the comic fans.
Apparently the villain in the JL movie will be Vril Drox – the original Brainiac in DC’s New 52 stories – the site also claims the movie title is currently subtitled, so it’s Justice League: Brainiac’s Saga.
Justice League arrives in November 2017 with the sequel in 2019.
In related news, Forbes magazine is reporting that Ben Affleck’s Batman will appear in The Suicide Squad movie from David Ayer, albeit briefly: It reports that he will be in a scene in the movie that will relate to the Joker’s being in prison. So probably a flashback scene. Speculation has begun that, if true, this may be a nod to the eventual stand-alone Batman movie.
There is also reports that Suicide Squad will introduce Gotham City Police Commissioner Ellen Yindel. In the comics Yindel is Gordon’s replacement and this may tie-in to reports we heard a while ago that Gordon may be dead before Batman V Superman kicks in (here)
We are taking the first part with a BIG grain of salt, but the Suicide Squad part does ring true somewhat… I’ll still be seriously upset if it’s right about Gordon, though
