Zack Snyder and crew have already announced that production for THE JUSTICE LEAGUE PART ONE is underway, but that's only the tip of the iceberg as far as the film's revelations go. While story and character details are still under wraps, The Hollywood Reporter has just announced that the Green Goblin himself, Willem Dafoe, has joined the cast of JUSTICE LEAGUE (both films) as an unspecified good guy. Let the speculation begin!

Willem Dafoe Dafriend

For those of you left with a bitter aftertaste brought on by DAWN OF JUSTICE, keep in mind that Chris Terrio and David Goyer worked on the story for BATMAN V SUPERMAN, while Terrio will be handling sole scripting duties for THE JUSTICE LEAGUE PART ONE and PART TWO. I'm hoping this bodes well for the story, as Terrio delivered a really taught script when it came to ARGO. How Dafoe fits into the mix is anyone's guess, but the cast is shaping up nicely!

THE JUSTICE LEAGUE PART ONE hits theaters on November 17, 2017.

Willem Dafoe

Any guesses on who Dafoe could be playing?

Maybe he'll be playing Metropolis' own Inspector Dan Turpin, a well known recurring character from Superman comics.

Martian Manhunter

His role in John Carter shows me he would be a perfect fit.

Maxwell Lord, maybe. He's a good guy...for now. Be sweet to see Wonder Woman spin his head around a few movies from now.

While his addition is great news, and why I'm giving it a green, I still have my worries. They should have ditched everyone who had a hand in writing BVS. That was such a clusterfuck full of trope and plot holes and no depth of any character. Now they are adding more characters, so it will require a skillful writer to introduce and balance them all properly. Argo was great, but BVS was not, so Terrio has his work cut out for him. Also I disagree its J'onn J'onzz. Hollywood won't recast a black

Also I disagree its J'onn J'onzz. Hollywood won't recast a black superhero in this environment as white in my opinion. And I'm a purist, if they did, I probably wouldn't bother to see the movie in theaters. Martian Manhunter is one of my favorite DC heroes.

True the environment now might be a little different than it was just a few months ago, when Tolda Swinton was cast in a traditionally Asian part. But don't presume to know what Hollywood will and won't do.

I'm curious as to why you believe the Martian Manhunter is a black superhero. (Technically... he's green.) In the comics, when he uses a human disguise, he goes by John Jones who happens to be a white detective. Then it was stated many years later that he lives various lives under different races and sexes all over the world.

As far as I know, the only depiction of him being black is on the Supergirl show and that's because he usurped Hank Henshaw's identity. No need as a purist to be

As for Dafoe, my guess is Dr. Occult or Phantom Stranger and probably had a hand on Batman's visions.

(The one person who should have played the Joker sometime.) Whomever he plays will be knocked outta the park, got the crazy too. Great actor.

If it's a good guy, then I agree with WatchTower that it's J'onn J'onzz. But it it's possibly a villain (just in case the source is wrong) then I would say perhaps Sinestro.

Either way it's great casting; it'll be exciting to see DaFoe in a comic book film again.
