Laurence Fishburne won't return for Justice League; defends DCEU

02.14.2017

DC's mightiest heroes will finally come together in JUSTICE LEAGUE, which hits this November, but not every character from the DCEU will be making an appearance. In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, Laurence Fishburne revealed the simple reason as to why he wouldn't be making an appearance, but also had a few words to say in defense of BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE. Take a look!

Laurence Fishburne on why he's not in JUSTICE LEAGUE:

They asked me to come for a day, but I couldn’t work it out, schedule-wise. And really, what do you need the newspaperman in JUSTICE LEAGUE for? You want to see the Flash. You want to see Aquaman. You want to see Wonder Woman. You want to see the Lantern.

We’ve been waiting 35 years for these [characters] to show up on the screen. What were they doing over there? Marvel has been kicking their ass. This is the comic-book geek in me, who has a collection of comic books. I’ve been waiting to see these people on-screen forever.

Regarding the backlash for BATMAN V SUPERMAN:

Look, I love what Zack Snyder does. Jesse Eisenberg, this little nebbishy guy, as Lex Luthor? For me, that’s a genius move. And the whole thing with Martha Kent and Martha Wayne? I don’t know, man, I must be sentimental but that’s some heartwarming [stuff] to me. So I don’t get it.

Given his eagerness to join Keanu Reeves in JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2, I don't doubt that the man has a penchant for world-building. He's certainly right in regards to Marvel characters in cinema, but I think this year will be very telling in what we will happen with the DC Extended Universe as it stands. WONDER WOMAN and JUSTICE LEAGUE are on their way and if they don't deliver, Warner Bros. may have to rethink their strategy. I'm certainly eager to find out!

JUSTICE LEAGUE hits theaters on November 17, 2017.

He knows Green Lantern isn't going to be in Justice League right?

Unless he does and just gave a hint that he will appear in some capacity. I would really be surprised if Green Lantern doesn't show up at the end or a mid/end credits scene to warn the rest of the Justice League about Darkseid.

the martha thing is Genius if you think about it.

Bruce became this creature because the assassination of his parents and "Martha" is the last word his father spoke before die.

Exactly, Bruce realizes that he was about to become the one thing he swore never to become. A Cold Blooded Murderer. An executioner. to those complaining that he shot vehicles and they blew up , well thats self defense and every single batman has done shit like that, including in the comics.

The Martha move was genius on paper, but unfortunately genius ideas alone do not great scenes make. You have to execute it well, which is where I feel this scene dropped the ball. Zack Snyder can direct the heck out of an action scene, and that showed in the film. However, he also sucks at drama, and that showed just as clearly in the film, especially in the key "Why did you say that name?!" scene.

BvS Ultimate Cut is a near CBM masterpiece.

I will defend that film to the day I die.

I agree wholeheartedly. Easily one of the best comic book films of all time.

100% agree. That movie is absolutely one of the best CBM ever made. The socio political commentary within the film is so relevant these days. The way they explore B and S and their psychological motivations for what they do and how they feel is absolute genius. Also the allegories and imagery that can be seen parallel to MOS is absolutely mind blowing.

BvS Ultimate Cut offers more of the stuff that the original cut was great at and more of the stuff that the original cut was weak at, it only magnifies its strengths and weaknesses it doesn't correct any of them.

I wouldn't call it a near masterpiece, as there are still significant problems, but the UE is good overall, and MUCH better than the theatrical cut. Between that and the Suicide Squad reshoots, hopefully WB is done interfering in the final cut of the film.

It's too bad that he won't be in Justice League since he's great in the role, but he is right in that his character or the Daily Planet really wouldn't bring anything story wise to Justice League.
