A silhouette in the background of DC's new production fanfare could be Nekron, one of the publisher's most powerful, if infrequently-used, villains.
As seen in the image below, Nekron's bony limbs, massive shoulders, and gait all match a large figure lingering far in the background of the image. Most of the characters surrounding him are villains like Black Manta, Solomon Grundy, and Scarecrow.
Also adjacent to the figure are Kilowog of the Green Lantern Corps and the spaceborne antihero called Lobo.
Nekron, who calls himself the lord of the dead, is a Green Lantern villain originally created in 1981. He draws power from and commands the souls and spirits of all who have ever died. He once battled the Green Lantern Corps to a standstill, until Hal Jordan entered Nekron's realm of the dead and turned a number of recently-deceased Green Lanterns against their master.
After a number of minor encounters with Captain Atom, Wonder Woman, and the Kyle Rayner Green Lantern, Nekron's next major story was in Blackest Night,when he used his power to take control of numerous superheroes and their loved ones who had died, or died and returned. It was played essentially as a zombie holocaust with power rings and was one of the big events that cemented Geoff Johns as the pre-eminent event writer at DC.
At the time, Johns has recently introduced a number of multicolored Lantern Corps, all of whom had to come together alongside Earth's superheroes to defeat Nekron.
A number of various differently-colored Lanterns appear in the image, including Atrocitus, Saint Walker, the Star Sapphire, and numerous Green Lanterns.
In the image above, Nekron's shoulderpads are also evident on the figure, as well as what appears to be the collar depicted at left.
It is worth noting that while it would seem his scythe is pictured here at first glance, that is not the case: what looks like it could be his scythe is likely the hook Lobo carries with him, given the placement of Lobo's hand in the foreground before the shadow figure that we're calling Nekron.
The new DC films fanfare debuted ahead of Wonder Woman in theaters, but no HD version was officially released. The Wonder Woman digital release, then, marks the first time a legal version of the animation could end up in the hands of fans...and there is plenty here to see. While most of the characters in the image have been guessed already, the high resolution version will confirm or discount those guesses, and some of the more obscured characters, like this one that may be Nekron, will likely be examined for the first time in any depth.
