What's better than one superhero? A billion superheroes.
Or, according to The Avengers, six superheroes.
Or maybe, as the Justice League is hoping, five superheroes.
Yeah, five superheroes should be good. According to Latino Review, the upcoming Justice League movie will feature five superheroes: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and Green Lantern. It is just one of the many rumors surrounding DC Comic's Justice League movie.
- Christian Bale will be reprising his role as Batman, joining Henry Cavil as Superman, assuming that Man of Steel (out Summer 2013) is successful.
- Christopher Nolan, director of the Dark Knight trilogy, will be overseeing the film as a producer, much like he oversaw the upcoming Man of Steel.
- Zack Snyder, director of Watchmen and the upcoming Superman epic, will be a producer and possibly direct the film.
Other rumors have circulated regarding Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing Batman, as the ending of The Dark Knight Rises would suggest. However, these rumors reported by El Miyambe are being taken seriously considering his previous scoops. The folks at ScreenRant.com are siding with El Miyambe's reports.
The Justice League first appeared in The Brave and The Bold #28 in 1960. Then, the team of superheroes consisted of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, Green Lantern, and the Martian Manhunter. If the rumors are true, the movie would feature five of the original seven Justice League members.
If Bale does return as Batman and Ryan Reynolds returns as Green Lantern, then the movie would only have two superheroes without a movie previously made (to be fair, Green Lantern was not well received).
And to throw one more rumor out there, just for kicks: since the Justice League movie appears to be following its roots with five of the original seven members of the league, it is fun to see that the original villain they faced was Starro the Conqueror. Could Starro be the villain?
The rumors will keep coming, hopefully Justice League lives up to them.
