That is, if we’re to believe this latest scoop from Latino Review, and I do. Their track record on these kinds of leaks speaks for itself. It’s going to be five core heroes: Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, The Flash, and Green Lantern – though not Jon Stewart who I picture above, but likely Hal Jordan. I know, I know, I was hoping we could avoid Ryan Reynolds, too, but he’s still a possibility.
Fans of other Leaguers, like Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, and Hawkman, there’s still a chance you’ll seem them on the big screen. But if they were to appear it’d be in a supporting or cameo role. With the villain likely to be a cosmic threat, I’d bet it was Martian Manhunter. Though, this Aquaman fangirl would love to see the King of Atlantis, I just don’t think it’ll happen this round. And Hawkman, yeah, sorry, there’s already three heroes here who can fly and two who can lay a hard punch, he’d be redundant.
Thank Hera they’ve included Wonder Woman. She may be the token woman of the team, but it’s something. Plus there’s the Wonder Woman and Flash scripts floating around making them good candidates behind Supes and Bats – ’cause you knew they’d be on the team – and Green Lantern, who already had a movie.
What do you think of the lineup? It’s pretty traditional, no real shockers here. I wonder how they’ll stack up against The Avengers? That sequel is releasing in 2015 and it’s expected so will this Justice League movie. And well, before then we’ve got Man of Steel. Were that movie to flop you can kiss this Justice League movie goodbye.
