Our DC Entertainment source sent us over a fresh batch of news on the Justice League movie and characters set to appear.
Previously our source revealed to us the first news on the Man of Steel spearheading a new DC shared movie universe, the Justice League 2015 movie, a new Batman reboot in 2016, a few scenes from the previous DC movies and most recently plans for an Aquaman movie.
Here is the latest:
• Superman is essentially the same character from Man of Steel, and Zack Snyder is consulting regarding the writing of the character.
• Batman: The strategist of the group. Batman doesn't really want to be involved with these super powered beings he considers too powerful. Easily the most complex written.
• Wonder Woman: She has only been in man's world a few short months. The Wonder Woman script Michael Goldenberg is developing will be set before the Justice League movie.
• Green Lantern: Will be Ryan Reynold's character from the Green Lantern movie, but will be freshly written with a more serious tone.
• Flash: The most popular hero in civilian eyes who loves media attention, but when called upon is very serious.
• Martian Manhunter: Alien who has lived on Earth in secret for over a hundred years who has knowledge of Darkseid and his reign.
• Aquaman: Will be the King of Atlantis who has a key role in the film.
• There will also be a heavy military presence in the film which in future rewrites could include characters featured in Man of Steel or even Amanda Waller (Angela Bassett) of which neither are included in the first draft.
• Alfred Pennyworth is in the film in a minor appearance.
• Lois Lane is also in the film in a cameo.
• Darkseid's Elite will be featured who go up against the Justice League early on in the film.
Sounds good to me. Hopefully they decide to axe Reynolds and have Kyle Rayner. I'm thinking Eddie Redmayne. Maybe Garrett Hedlund. Oh and Ryan Gosling would make a great Wally West. Fuck DC if they have Barry be the Flash. No fucking clue on Aquaman, Martian Manhunter (Chiwetel Ejiofor or maybe... Tyler Perry?
), or Wonder Woman (I wouldn't mind seeing Jessica Biel wearing the outfit).
So, do they cast a new Batman or go with BlakeBats?
