Hot damn, we've waited a long time for a possible Justice League movie to finally happen! Us comic fans and superhero geeks have been asking what seems like forever, "Is there a Justice League movie that's gonna happen or what?"

With all the talk and tongue slapping in the past, it seemed like a Justice League movie would never get out of production hell. I'm still frustrated just thinking about it.

That was until The Avengers movie came along and changed comic book movies pretty much forever! Now it seems Warner/DC are serious about finally putting out a big screen adaptation of one of the most recognizable superhero teams in the history of comics.

So what's the news and rumors going around about a possible Justice League movie happening? Well, let's recap.

Warner and DC confirmed that they are releasing a Justice League film in 2015. Yes, it will directly compete for box office dominance with the Avengers 2 sequel.

According to the fine folks at Collider.com, Will Beall the writer of Gangster Squad will pen the Justice League flick.

We know that Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and the Green Lantern will be in it. We also know that the Justice League's Superman and Batman will have nothing to do with Christopher Nolan's and Zack Synder's Batman and Superman.

In short, it won't be a shared universe like Disney and Marvels. Still no word on the Flash or Martian Manhunter being in the film.

Because of that fact that this won't be a DC Comic's shared movie universe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt won't play Batman. 

And, the monster of them all, the Latino Review has dropped the bomb on who the actual villain of the Justice League movie will be. If you don't like spoilers, stop reading right now! 

If you don't care then keep reading, because the fine folks at the Latino Review - the same group who leaked out that Thanos would be in the Avengers - have just recently leaked out that Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Batman, Aquaman, and other superheroes will go up against none other than Darkseid in the movie!

There's the handsome guy! Kinda looks like Thanos, right?  

Not too many fans are happy about the choice in villain. We will see the Avengers go up against Thanos in 2015, and then see the Justice League go up against Darkseid.

One fan even called the news of the JLA movie villain, "Desperate!"  Even though the character of Thanos in the comics came after Darkseid, many who don't know comic book lore and history would see the Justice League movie as a rip off of The Avengers 2.

As for those comic collecting fanatics who are smart enough to already have the first Justice League of America #1 comic book, sit back, relax, and watch your investment comic keep rising for the next two years.

For those who haven't gotten this key silver age issue, it's time you seriously think about doing just that. Click the link to find out where you can locate a DC Comics Justice League of America #1 silver age key issue.

  1. Just in case Darkseid will be the "Big Bad" in a future Justice League movie, I would advise anyone interested in picking up the books where Darkseid first took on the JLA in Justice League of America (vol. 1) issues #183, 184 and 185 with the cover dates of Oct., Nov., and Dec. 1980. Unslabbed, the values of these books are in the $10-$12 range.
