Earlier it was rumored that Darkseid would be the featured villain for the Justice League movie, and now some apparent storyline and plot details have become known.
According to the same source of the Darkseid rumor, Latino Review, Will Beall based his script for the Justice League movie on the Justice League of America comic book, #183-185.
The storyline features Darkseid attempting to destroy the earth with a death ray in order to replace it with his own planet of Apokolips.
The story didn't just feature the Justice League either, as they were paired up with the lesser known characters from the Justice League Society.
Interestingly enough, DC Comics is launching a sister title to their top seller Justice League comic book, featuring lesser known characters as members of the Justice League of America.
And to add a twist of sorts to all this, Jim Starlin did two covers for the Darkseid storyline. Of course, Jim Starlin based his Marvel Comics villain, Thanos - The Avengers movie villain - on Darkseid.
