The upcoming DC movie Justice League is still far from hitting the cinemas. But, as early as now, there are already speculations about who could be the villains in the film. Rumor has it that the Suicide Squad will be the one to cause conflicts in the movie and their casting will be formally announced this December. How true is that?
A lot of fans want to see their favorite superheroes going up against elite villains in the DC Universe. Now, there are claims that the heroes of the Justice League will be dealing with the Suicide Squad in their movie next year. Although it would really be interesting to see them fight, their battle would not be included in the 2017 movie.
First of all, it is true that the Justice League will go up against the Suicide Squad. But, it would not be in the film. Instead, their showdown will take place in the new six-part comic book titled Justice League vs. Justice League. Also, aside from these two teams battling, there are other villains that will cause trouble in the story.
According to IGN, there is a third unnamed group that will exist in the new comic book. The team will be led by the villain Maxwell Lord. The character was known for taking over the world in 2005’s Infinite Crisis. He controlled Superman’s mind which forced Wonder Woman to break the villain’s neck and kill him.
Also, Emerald Empress, Rustam, Doctor Polaris, Lobo and Johnny Sorrow will be included in the team. Now, do not be surprised if you do not know any of these characters. These are classic villains that DC is going to re-introduce as part of their Rebirth initiative. The new comic book series will be released in December 2016 and will have a weekly shipping schedule.
Meanwhile, there are no specific information yet about the villains in the Justice League 2017 movie. Also, the Suicide Squad is not confirmed to appear in the film. But, knowing DC, they would include villains that would make the flick more interesting.
