Latino Review has brought us some interesting new tidbits about two of Warner Bros.’ upcoming DC films, including the highly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice follow-up, Justice League.
The site says that the rumored villain for the upcoming team movie will be none other than classic Superman villain Brianiac. In the latest episode of Meet The Movie Press, LR‘s El Mayimbe noted that this is just a rumor at the time but that it has ties to 2013’s Man of Steel due to the Kryptonian beacon that Clark activated. The item, which drew General Zod to Earth in that film, was apparently “also heard” by Brainiac, which will lead him to our planet in Justice League.
Another, DC movie that Latino Review has rumors on is the upcoming Suicide Squad film, which was recently revealed might have End of Watch and Fury director David Ayers at the helm. LR reports that the line-up for the supervillain team will consist of the super strong Blockbuster, the self-replicating Multiplex (who will appear in the second episode of The Flash), the speedster Jaculi (who only survived two issues on the team), the illusion-casting Mindboggler, the original Captain Boomerang George Harkness (set to appear on Arrow this season), the animal mimicker Vixen, and the face of Task Force X, Floyd Lawton aka Deadshot (who was previously played by Michael Rowe on “Arrow.”)
Keep in mind, the above Justice League piece is branded a rumor even by its source site, so check back for confirmation. The script for Suicide Squad, on the other hand, has been written for a over a year now and this line-up could in fact be the team we might see on the big screen.
