Rumor: Justice League Movie Villain Is Starro! Not Darkseid!

Body

4424 Warner Bros. is planning a Justice League movie in 2015 and by all accounts it will star Henry Cavill as Superman with the debut of the new Batman and many of the other DC Comics super heroes as well.

A rumor recently hit the net that the villain for the Justice League movie will be none other than Darkseid, the near omnipotent cosmic bad guy and resident of Apokolips.

However, with the use of Darkseid, the question that must be asked is will Warner Bros. be using a villain who is so similar to Thanos, the Marvel Studios Mad Titan from the mid-credit scene featured in The Avengers movie that will also go on to headline the Guardians of the Galaxy movie and The Avengers 2.

As Thanos is based on Darkseid - and they do resemble each other - conflict could arise with audiences questioning the Justice League movie's use of Darkseid as it would look like an apparent rip off (though, comic book fans know better).

So with that, we received a tip on just who the villain of the Justice League movie is.

The tipster has sent us two previous bits of information, one of which was that Bradley Cooper will cameo as Lex Luthor in the Man of Steel, with the other being that Max Landis is involved with the "Man of Steel 2." Note: Shortly after the Bradley Cooper as Lex Luthor rumor surfaced, his reps quickly shot it down.

So we'll leave it up to you decide.

The the tipster says that the villain of the Justice League movie is actually -- Starro! And not Darkseid!

Comic book fans will know that the galaxy conquering alien Starro is actually the first villain to take on the Justice League in the comic books.
