Justice League Movie (2015) Rumored To Have Darkseid As Villain

Body

4397 With Warner Bros. launching a Justice League movie in 2015, and with Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel set to star, it's being said that Darkseid is the villain.

Latino Review, known for a few Marvel spoilers here and there that seem to be true, says that after they did some snooping around, it was revealed to them that Darkseid is the villain of the Justice League movie.

If you are a fan of the comics, the use of Darkseid for the movie is a no-brainer as he's one of DC Comics' most powerful and infamous villains.

Darkseid was created by Jack Kirby and is a New God from the planet Apokolips that has vast powers with not only strength rivaling Superman's own, but a genius level (or beyond) intellect.

Interesting enough, a similar bad guy made his appearance in Joss Whedon's billion dollar blockbuster Marvel Studios movie, The Avengers, with Thanos, the Mad Titan.

Marvel Comics' Thanos is based on DC Comics' Darkseid.

It's also said that Thanos will be featured in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie as well as The Avengers 2, with The Avengers 2 set to take the Justice League movie head on in the Summer of 2015.

So will they both essentially be using the same villain?

We actually put it forth that Marvel Studios purposely put Thanos in the post-credit scene in The Avengers movie to - in essence - trump Warner Bros. use of Darkseid.

If you think about it, if the Justice League movie Darkseid resembles Thanos - at all - the general public might be left scratching their heads, as Thanos would have already been featured in three (if not more) movies.

Possibly a more plausible villain could be Braniac or how about both?
