    Latino Review reports that according to its sources, Darkseid is set to be the lead antagonist in Warner Bros. Pictures upcoming “Justice League” movie. Take this as a rumor for now, but also keep in mind LR has an excellent track record in reporting superhero cinema news, as it was the first site to report Heath Ledger would play The Joker in the “Batman Begins” sequel we would later come to know as “The Dark Knight.”

    Before blasting WB for “copying” Marvel for the latter’s plans to use Thanos in its “Avengers” sequel, remember that this particular “Justice League” picture was already in development before Marvel’s box office juggernaut teased its future villain. Still, even if this is a coincidence, it is an unfortunate one for WB. “Justice League” is currently set to follow “The Avengers 2″ sometime in the summer of 2015, which makes the presence of a similar villain on top of a similar concept all the more difficult of a publicity obstacle to overcome.

    Mainstream audiences will not know or care that WB may have decided on Darkseid as the villain for “Justice League” before “The Avengers” was released. The studio has to take this into account, so if LR’s report is true, it will be interesting to see if WB sticks with Darkseid and does so with or without making any changes to address the character’s similarities to Thanos.

    It is going to be the four big DC characters. Captain Marvel, Plastic-Man, Hawkman and Robin.

    :laugh2:

    I ask, because Spider-Man, one of the main avengers, wasn't in the avengers movie because of movie rights and other legal crap.

    Like Bale said he wouldn't play batman anymore, in any movie. So i am curious.

    Maybe I will be excited for a Justice League movie after the new Superman comes out, but I can't say that I'm feeling it at the moment. I have not seen anything from DC that leads me to believe that they could ever pull of something on that scale. Adding in Darkseid, yeah, that is a little too close to Thanos. the average movie going schmoes are going to think DC is trying to cash in on Marvel's thunder, but really, who else does DC have that they could cast as the villian?

    He is talking about who most people that do not read comics call Shazam.

    The characters actual name is Captain Marvel

    I believe that Thanos (Marvel) was copied from Darkseid (DC)

    It was. The look at least.

    The back-story and motivation are very different.
