Justice League movie character info

We’re still waiting on casting news and we still don’t know who’s directing it. But we do have some news relating to the characters of the Justice League movie. Cosmic Book News released some information which they say came from their “DC entertainment source”. So let’s take a look.

• 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 Reynold’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.

Out of everything (if the source is credible), the most surprising is the return of Ryan Reynold’s Green Lantern. The film was far from a success but it wasn’t a loss either (it pretty much broke even). So perhaps the thinking is that having a couple of familiar faces on the team will improve their audience numbers.

So what do you think? Are you ready for another Batman? Worried about who might direct? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below.

The script for Justice League is being written by Will Beale and Warner Bros are still aiming for a 2015 release date.
