DC Comics' "Justice League of America" movie is set to be the answer to Marvel’s mega hit “The Avengers,” and, while no director has been announced and the movie will not hit screens until 2015, the superhero roster has been set. Superman and Batman are locks, but which superheroes will join them as members of the Justice League?
Latino Review has the scoop on what could be the final roster for the "Justice League of America" movie. There have been many members of the Justice League, much like its Marvel counterpart "The Avengers," and many fans have chimed in on who they would want to represent the superhero team on the big screen.
The Justice League of America was founded in 1960 and originally included Batman, Superman, Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Aquaman and the Martian Manhunter. Since that time, Batman and Superman have been staples of the Justice League, and there have been several additional members throughout the years. Green Arrow, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Elongated Man and the Atom are just a few superheroes to be a part of the Justice League.
The current Justice League roster includes Batman, Superman, Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Aquaman and Cyborg. With “The Avengers 2” slated for a 2015 release, “Justice League of America” will have a tough fight on its hands to rule the box office. As such, it will need to bring its best Justice League roster to the screen.
It’s no surprise then that, according to sources speaking to Latino Review, the Justice League roster will include Superman, Batman, Flash, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern. It seems as though Latino Review believes Martian Manhunter or Aquaman will get a chance to make a cameo with the favorite being the former due to Darkseid being the speculated villain.
The difficulty with Justice League is that only Superman, Batman and Green Lantern have current movies. Unlike “The Avengers,” the other superheroes will need to have some backstory, Latino Review notes. It’s unclear who will play Batman, as Christian Bale is no longer attached and Joseph Gordon-Levitt may assume the cowl but has not signed on yet. Expect plenty of news on the Justice League movie as fan speculation, rumors and actual production news gets announced.
