Darkseid To Be The Villain For Justice League Movie?!?
Reported by Jay Cochran - 2012.12.03
I am taking this one with a grain of salt and would only consider it as a rumor at this point, but website Latino Review is reporting that they have learned that the main villain for the upcoming live-action Justice League movie from Warner Bros. will be Darkseid (pronounced Dark-side).
For those not familiar with the character, Darkseid is a super-powerful being who rules the world known as Apokolips with an iron fist. His main power is the ability to control what is known as the Omega Force which he shoots out of his eyes like laser beams.
Darkseid is probably one of the most logical choices for this movie because he is one of the few DC Villains strong enough to take on DC's most powerful heroes such as Superman, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman at the same time.
Word has been that Warner Bros. plans to spin-out movies based on Justice League team members after the release of the Justice League movie which would consist of members including Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern and Batman. There have also been rumors that next year's Man of Steel movie will begin to set the stage for this big ensemble of heroes on the big screen. Darkseid has been portrayed taking on the Justice League with an emphasis on Superman in both comics and cartoons over the years, so if we begin to see seeds for the Justice League movie planted in the upcoming Man of Steel movie, Darkseid would make a logical bridge between the two movies. Only time will tell though if this latest rumor pans out or not.
What do you think, would Darkseid be a good choice for the villain in the upcoming Justice League movie?
