Zack Snyder Confirms Batman Was Referencing Darkseid in 'Justice League'.

 
In what may be a case that was always obvious to a lot fans, Zack Snyder has just confirmed that yes, the "something darker" that Ben Affleck's Batman references during a scene in Justice League was in fact an allusion to DC villain Darkseid.
As Batman v Superman and Justice League clearly hint, Snyder's original plan for a two-part Justice League story would've eventually led to Darkseid's debut in the DC Extended Universe. Snyder confirmed as much over on Vero.

 

VERO: Zack just confirmed the “something darker” line meant Darkseid from DC Cinematic.

 

Again: this should be of little surprise to anyone who has followed the DCEU for any length of time; the war between Earth and Apokolips and Darkseid's emergence was something that a lot of fans had been waiting for ever since Man of Steel. If anything, hearing this confirmation from Zack Snyder simply twists the knife in the guts of every fan who was dying to see Snyder's vision for Justice League and are now championing the "#ReleaseTheSnyderCut" movement.

And yet, this same example also help to effectively illustrate why winning the fight to get the so-called "Snyder Cut" released may still be a loss in the end. Seeing Snyder's full vision for the film would no doubt put a lot more emphasis on what the filmmaker had planned to do after Justice League. Which, of course, doesn't appear to be in the cards at all.

What would be perhaps more fun would be if we could get a look at some kind of concept art or models for Snyder's DCEU version of Darkseid, and perhaps other iconic figures from Apokolips, such as Kalibak, Desaad, or Granny Goodness. Of course, director Ava DuVernay is taking on DC's New Gods movie, which deals with the war between the beings of Apokolips and its sister planet, New Genesis. So perhaps we'll still be seeing those same characters mentioned above in the DCEU soon enough.

The post-Snyder, post-Justice League era will truly begin with the release of Aquaman later this year. That film has gotten a recent boost in hype thanks to an extended trailer that teased an epic superhero adventure, one that is a lot lighter in spirit -- even with some horrific elements -- than what we've seen from the DCEU so far.

Upcoming DC Extended Universefilms include Aquaman on December 21st, Shazam on April 5, 2019, and Wonder Woman 2 on November 1, 2019.

Zack Snyder Teases Superman’s Presence in Justice League....

Zack Snyder teases Superman’s presence in Justice League
Following the new photo from Justice League that was released yesterday, Empire is back with a high-res version of the photo and even a quote from director Zack Snyder about the elephant in the room, or rather, the Man of Steel.
“Superman does play a big part in this movie,” Snyder tells the outlet. “His presence, and lack of presence, are big story points…”
As you may recall from the ending of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Man of Steel didn’t make it out of the film alive, though the final seconds of the feature teased he would return. Star Henry Cavill also teased the character’s infamous “black suit” last year, a costume that the hero wore in the pages of DC Comics following his resurrection. What role do you think Superman will play in the film? Sound off below!
Justice League also stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, with J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, and Amy Adams as Lois Lane.
While not in the official Justice League cast list released by Warner Bros., it is expected that Ciarán Hinds will play Steppenwolf, Amber Heard will appear as Mera, and Kiersey Clemons will appear as Iris West.
Fueled by the hero’s restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Justice League sees Bruce Wayne enlist the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, the screenplay is by Chris Terrio from a story by Snyder and Terrio. The producers are Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns. The executive producers are Jim Rowe, Wesley Coller, Curt Kanemoto, Chris Terrio and Ben Affleck.
Justice League will open in theaters on November 10 2017.

Justice League Action: Everything We Know About the Cartoon Network Series !!!!!

 

 

Those of you, who love the Justice League  animated series a new series  returned  to Cartoon Netwok  !!!!

Justice League Action: Everything We Know About the Cartoon Network Series

 Fifteen years after the premiere of “Justice League,” DC Comics‘ greatest heroes return to animated television Friday, Dec. 16, in the United States with “Justice League Action,” and they’ve brought along some friends. A lot of friends.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, the new Cartoon Network series probably has more in common with “Batman: The Brave and the Bold” than with “Justice League” or “Justice League Unlimited,” as it teams DC icons — first and foremost, Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman — with a roster of lesser-known heroes. Oh, and there are plenty of villains, too, both big and small, from classics like The Joker to Chronos, to newer nemeses like Dex-Starr.

Justice League Action” also eschews the traditional 22-minute animated format in favor of 11-minute episodes, which means the emphasis will be on, well, action. It’s right there in the title.

To get you ready for the series premiere, we’ve broken down everything we know (so far) about “Justice League Action.”

It Was Originally Planned as a Batman Series

Although the short-lived “Beware the Batman” had ended only in 2014, the project that would become “Justice League Action” was supposed to be Cartoon Network’s latest Batman cartoon.

“Originally, we were supposed to be doing another Batman series,” producer Butch Lukic, whose credits include “Batman: The Animated Series” and “Batman Beyond,” revealed in July at Comic-Con International. “But me and Alan [Burnett] got together with the whole team and then eventually, a week later, it was suggested we do a Justice League show instead. There was a gap between a new series [and the last one], plus the new movie is coming out, so we got the go-ahead to do a Justice League series.”

Season One Features More Than 150 DC Characters

Well, 152 to be exact. Of those, Lukic said about 60 are superheroes, 40 are villains, and the remainder supporting players. Most of the episodes will feature at least one of DC’s Trinity — Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman — partnered with a veritable who’s who of the DC Universe (seriously, you may need to dust off a copy of “Who’s Who in the DC Universe”). Along with the likes of Hawkman, Stargirl, Blue Beetle and Plastic Man, between the Comic-Con highlight reel and leaked concept art we’ve seen such characters as Mongul, Big Barda, Doctor Light, Shazam, Vixen, Mr. Terrific and Killer Croc. But that barely scratches the surface.

DC Entertainment approached the series with a clear idea of which character should appear. “They gave us a list at first,” Lukic said. “That was based originally on the [New] 52 comics. The list of characters in there were what they wanted, and it was pretty much the ones everyone wants, plus some odd ones. We definitely got most of those in, plus a few that we thought of that would fit.”

Expect the Unexpected

Unexpected team-ups, that is. As you might expect from the eclectic cast of characters, some of the pairings are unusual, to say the least. For instance, in the highlight reel we see Batman with Etrigan the Demon and Wonder Woman take on Lobo, while in one of the clips Superman seemingly “rescues” The Joker from Mongul.

Dafoe has signed on to join the "Justice League."

 

"Spider-Man" star Willem Dafoe is headed to Warner Bros.' "Justice League," but -- according to The Hollywood Reporter -- he'll be on the side of the angels this time around. Though few details are known about Dafoe's role at this time, the report clarifies he'll be playing one of the good guys.

Dafoe will join fellow newcomer and "Spider-Man" alum J.K. Simmons, who Warner Bros. tapped to play Commissioner Gordon last month. Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot will also return as Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman respectively, while Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ezra Miller (the Flash) and Ray Fisher (Cyborg) join the team for the very first time.

In addition to his role as Green Goblin in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man," Dafoe has appeared in "Platoon," "John Wick," "Boondock Saints," "John Carter" and many, many more films.

"Justice League Part One" is scheduled to open on November 17, 2017, though Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot will first be seen as Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", which is currently in theaters.
