Rumor: Justice League villain may not be who you think it is

Everyone thinks they have an idea as to who the big baddie is going to be for the first part of Warner Bros. JUSTICE LEAGUE team-up to get the DC Cinematic Universe rolling in major fashion. But if you're initial guess here was Darkseid, you may be dead wrong. New rumors are circulating that while Darkseid may be involved somehow, he won't be the large threat that the band of superheroes face as they combine their efforts. Someone else has gotten the job.

SPOILER ALERT

According to Devin Faraci at Birth.Movies.Death, Steppenwolf is getting the nod. For those who might need to bust out their DC Encyclopedia to familiarize themselves with Steppenwolf, the character is the uncle of Darkseid and the military leader of Apokolips. And while that may sound cool on paper, Steppenwolf really didn't come into his own until The New 52 version of him was unleashed, allowing him to invade Earth and put up a bit of a fight, which sounds like what he might be doing here.

Darkseid had been alluded to in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE (look out for the Omega symbol in Bruce Wayne's dream, if you haven't already), and he'll be surfacing at some point in the next chapter, but don't expect him to really do anything as you had prior until most likely PART TWO.

JUSTICE LEAGUE - PART ONE is set for release on November 17, 2017.

Well the idea to not blow their whole load in their first movie truly together as the Justice League is probably a great idea. I mean where would the DCCU go after using Darkseid 2 movies in? I also applaud them for giving us a villain we've never seen on the big screen. Now time to cue the shittness...Snyder. It doesn't matter what kind of good ideas or bad they have, Snyder makes all ideas shitty. Granted beautiful looking shit, but still ultimately shit. I'd be jumping for joy if they just

I'd be jumping for joy if they just kick Snyder to the curb and let Affleck direct the ship of the DCCU. Even if we lost a little visual flair, we actually get a cohesive story and characters that we cared about like all his other movies he's directed. In addition he was a comic book fan along with Kevin Smith growing up, so there is a much better chance he'd capture the true spirit of the characters tone than Snyder ever would.

I'm digging the direction they're going. It's a nice break from the usual popcorn flicks, which are good too. Depends what you're in the mood for.

While these are all very cool ideas. If you have Snyder and Goyer writing the scripts, you're going to continuously have convoluted story lines.

New Gods!

I am down for this idea, so as long as they hire an actor for the role. No more CGI monsters.

Snyder fanboys can go fuck a duck. They are no better than Bay fanboys. They are amused at shiny objects, they probably stare at the sun all day because its like one giant michael bay/Zack Snyder movie, a flaming ball of farts.

sounds great but my personal opinion is let affleck direct this and get rid of snyder...i say affleck would give us a great justice league and great solo batman movie.

If they can do it then it would certainly be for the better. I left the train after BvS but would get back on board for this.

Not really what I was hoping to hear...

Hopefully the plus side of this would be that they're saving brainiac or other more popular villains for solo movies.

Sounds about right

Build up to Darksied, pull superman back until the third act. Batman is collecting meta humans. Sounds about rt.

They should save Darkseid for part two of Justice League anyway. I'm just curious to see how long they keep Superman six feet under for throughout the film. If he's brought back too early, then it kind of kills the anticipation for his return.

Steppenwolf is that CGI horned dude from the deleted scene with Luthor. This is not really news, but I guess it confirms the character AS Steppenwolf. Darkseid probably gonna be in part 2.

So Justice League really is going to be a shitty military movie...

It's going to be all like the dream sequence (the one within the dream, wow just saying that makes it even shittier).

Seriously, nobody should ever like Zack Snyder. The man is a horrible director and has ruined the DC universe in one swift blow.

Well it's in two parts, so you pretty much expect part one to be against the second-in-command villain. Shouldn't be much of a surprise, besides discovering what the hell his name is.
