Martian Manhunter, Max Lord, And Darkseid Rumored For Justice League Movie 8

Share

Martian Manhunter, Darkseid, Maxwell Lord

Today seems to be the day for DC Comics movie rumors. Earlier today, a report surfaced outlining Warner Bros. plans for seven movies based on DC Comics properties. Two of the movies (Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League) were already known, but several of the others listed came as surprises.

No one knows for sure if the list is accurate or not, but it did come from Nikki Finke, who is known for breaking Hollywood scoops. The same can be said for this latest rumor. Jeff Sneider, a reporter for The Wrap, tweeted an agency grid, which lists Martian Manhunter and Max Lord as characters for Justice League. Sneider also noted that Darkseid was listed as the villain.

Of course, Martian Manhunter, Maxwell Lord, and Darkseid have all been previously rumored at different times for a Justice League movie, so it's possible that the agency grid was prepared off rumored information. However, with Comic Con just a little over a month away, fans will likely soon find out which of the DC Comics movie rumors are true and which are false.

    As much as I would like to see MM and Darkseid.... i don't buy this rumor. Especially since the writer of the movie just dismissed the premise of the character, joking about his name and story. 

     MM and Max Lord were main characters of the Justice League: Mortal script. (which is a really good read, could have been a great movie) 

    Maybe Darkseid is the villian of this movie. Its possible.

    Seeing as he is the original Kirby creation and Thanos and Apocalypse are recreations and/or rip offs, i would like to see him get his due before all the unknowing MCU fans start in on the "DC is copying Marvel" nonsense. 

     Darkseid is a JL level event villian but my bet is BvS is a Lex Luthor+(some other superman villian Metallo, Parasite, etc) leading into a Justice League movie based loosely on the Death of Superman with Doomsday. They have been throwing that character around in alot of interviews.

     That first arrival of Doomsday when he's smacking down JL members with literally one hand tied behind his back would make for an epic first act set piece.

    I doubt it. I've always thought Doomsday would be a Superman film, and if the release slate that Nikki Finke dropped today is accurate, it means we'd see Superman in at least one, possibly two or more, additional movies before "Man of Steel 2." That gives them some time to build history and make "killing" him not seem so cavalier. #Doomsday2018 for me.
