The Latino Review claims to have inside knowledge on what DC comic storyline the “Justice League” movie will be based on, and if they’re right, then I’m kind of worried DC and Warner Bros. are going too big too fast.
The rumor is the movie will cover the story told in “Justice League Of America” #183-185, where Darkseid attempts to destroy Earth to make way for his own planet. It’s a very popular story involving one of DC’s best villains, but it’s also extremely grand for a first “Justice League” movie.
Darkseid is kind of at the top of the food chain when it comes to DC villains, which is why I think the studios are going too big too fast. What could possibly top Darkseid? Not much, in way of individual villains.
Also, the storyline has the Justice League teaming up with the Justice Society… So will we see two teams in one movie? That could be awesome, but, again, too big too fast.
I trust Latino Review, but I’m curious what changes have been made from the source material, in order for it to fit well into a theatrical world. We still don’t even know who will be on the JL team, except Batman and Superman. Possibly Green Lantern. Maybe Wonder Woman.
