Has Justice League got its villain?

December 4th, 2012 by Marc Comments

While there’s no doubt we’re all buzzing about Avengers 2, there’s another superhero team-up movie coming in 2015 that we are giddy about… Justice League!

I’ll not lie, I’ve always been a DC guy (although, I’m steeped in Marvel at the minute and, while Batman is my favourite comic character of all-time, I can see a switching of allegiances in my future), so the prospect of Justice League done properly could be easily on a par with The Avengers. But at the heart of all good superhero concepts is a good villain… and in all fairness, it doesn’t get higher concept than a god.

Yes, the guys at Latino Review are confirming that Darkseid, supreme monarch of the planet Apokolips and the greatest threat to the DC Universe, is set to be the big bad faced by Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and Flash in the movie. No gradual build-up ala Avengers here, they aim to hit the heroes hard right out of the stables.

Still no confirmation on whether or not Henry Cavill will be Superman or Joseph Gordon Levitt will be Batman in Justice League yet.

Justice League is tentatively aiming for a summer 2015 release.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
