Latino Review has an exclusive piece worth checking out: They say they know what villain the Justice League will face off against in their 2015 movie. And that villain is Darkseid, which is no doubt DC’s and Warner Bros.’ answer to Marvel using Thanos in “Avengers 2.”
In this corner we got Earth’s Mightiest Heroes going up against Thanos the Mad Titan. How will Warners respond? Just WHO will the Justice League face off against?
Not a Titan, but a GOD!
After some persistent snooping, we have exclusively learned that the main baddie is none other than… DARKSEID!
I’m hesitant to call this a good idea, if it is true. Darkseid is kind of the ultimate bad guy in the DC Universe, and having him the first villain the Justice League put down could only cause a downhill progression of villains in any subsequent films. Thanos isn’t the worst thing that could happen to the Avengers, and even then, Marvel is building up to his showdown with the team. DC and WB are just diving right in.
It’s admirable but it also makes me wonder if WB is desperate for a badass villain, and if they’re scared “Avengers 2″ will steal their thunder. Maybe the “Justice League” script isn’t what they’d hope it would be? Maybe they realize a lot of DC villains just aren’t worthy of the League’s attention? But surely they’re smart enough to know they need to build up to the character rather than just BOOM, here he is.
Still, at this point it’s a rumor. But I trust Latino Review and their inside sources, so consider it fact right now.
