ZonaHollywood.com - CATEGORY Prime Report: TITLE
Kiersey Clemons was cast as The Flash character Iris West, but the rumour is that both she and Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor have been cut from the movie.
The villain Darkseid (aka the 'god of evil') was very heavily hinted at in >Batman v Superman –but it looks like the Thanos-esque character won't be the big bad of the movie.
Instead we will get Steppenwolf – a character with strong links to Darkseid and a member of the superpowered race called the New Gods – who we caught a glimpse of in a >Batman v Superman deleted scene. Ciarán Hinds (Game of Thrones, Rome) has taken on the role.© Warner Bros.
"Maybe he exists out there in the universe," Snyder told Empire when asked about Darkseid. "Maybe he's looking for something. Something that is against life?" (That's a thing called the Anti-Life Equation which robs people of free will, FYI.) So the film may at least continue working towards his eventual appearance.
There's also a rumour that Jared Leto might make an appearance as the Joker after his Suicide Squad debut.
Justice League release date: The biggest year in superheroics yet© Warner Bros / Fox / Sony / MarvelAdvertisement - Continue Reading Below
Justice League will be released on November 17, 2017, rounding off what is probably the busiest year in Hollywood superhero movies so far. There will be seven DC and Marvel adaptations coming out, and that doesn't even count the Lego Batman film and all the TV and Netflix properties.
A second movie, Justice League: Part Two, was originally reported to follow on June 14, 2019 – a whole 19 months later. But strangely enough, the latest word from producer Deborah Snyder is that it was never planned to begin with – although it looks like a second, standalone film might be in the works.
Justice League plot: Building the team© DC Entertainment
Here's the official synopsis:
"Fuelled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.
"Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat.
"But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes – Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash – it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions."
The report is that Steppenwolf comes to Earth to find three Mother Boxes – super-advanced computers created by the alien New Gods. One is possessed by the Amazons, as seen in the trailer.© Warner Bros.
Superman will be returning from the dead too, one way or another. Try to look surprised.
Henry Cavill has even teased the black costume and mullet look – a classic from the original time that Superman died (but not really) back in the '90s. Naturally, we are so up for this.
Justice League is taking a different approach to the gradual build-up to 2012's Avengers. Iron Man, Thor and Captain America all received their own solo films before Marvel brought them together.
