Rumor: 2015’s Justice League lineup revealed?


You should take this next bit of news with the saltiest of salt licks. If this does turn out to be true however, I will be the happiest of campers. According to the folks over at Cosmic Book News, they have received a new batch of information regarding character lineup and cameo appearances for the upcoming not Avengers, but kind of like it Justice League movie. I’ll post the information after the jump, but here are a few standouts: 

Superman will be sort of like the Superman from Man of Steel with Zack Snyder contributing to the character’s writing (WHAT), most of the exisitng films’ (including Green Lantern) continuities will just be morphed into one blob monstrosity (WHAT), and the most awesome news of all, Aquaman is in it (WHAT). Just give me the outrageous version of the character from Batman The Brave and the Bold, and you have yourself a deal. In fact, just give me an Outrageous Aquaman franchise. But of course, all or none of this could be true (I mean, look at the source). All of the factoids from Cosmic Book News is right after the jump. What do you all think? Good lineup? Bad lineup? Needs more outrageous?

Superman is essentially the same character from Man of Steel, and Zack Snyder is consulting regarding the writing of the character.

• Batman: The strategist of the group. Batman doesn’t really want to be involved with these super powered beings he considers too powerful. Easily the most complex written.

• Wonder Woman: She has only been in man’s world a few short months. The Wonder Woman script Michael Goldenberg is developing will be set before the Justice League movie.

• Green Lantern: Will be Ryan Reynolds’s character from the Green Lantern movie, but will be freshly written with a more serious tone.

• Flash: The most popular hero in civilian eyes who loves media attention, but when called upon is very serious.

• Martian Manhunter: Alien who has lived on Earth in secret for over a hundred years who has knowledge of Darkseid and his reign. 

• Aquaman: Will be the King of Atlantis who has a key role in the film.

• There will also be a heavy military presence in the film which in future rewrites could include characters featured in Man of Steel or even Amanda Waller (Angela Bassett) of which neither are included in the first draft.

• Alfred Pennyworth is in the film in a minor appearance.

• Lois Lane is also in the film in a cameo.

• Darkseid’s Elite will be featured who go up against the Justice League early on in the film.
