The Justice League are the most well-known group of the DC universe and many have been waiting a long time for a Justice League to come to theatres, and luckily, it is almost here! With high anticipation for the film, many fans have been analysing trailers and thinking about what could possibly be lying ahead for the film and this has led to a few popular theories about what we may see!
If you have any theories about this movie, we’d love to hear them! Tell us in the comments below!
Darkseid Will Be Introduced
This super-villain is common foe of Superman with a cameo Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen #134 (1970) followed by his first full role in Forever People #1 (1971). Darkseid wants to conquer the world (like most villains) and to eliminate all superhumans. We already know he will eventually play a big role in the future DC films as it has already been confirmed that his servant, Steppenwolf, is the main villain of Justice League, so what’s to say Darkseid won’t make an appearance? Perhaps after the big fight scene we may learn if his arrival is impending.
Green Lantern Joins The Team
If you know even just a little about the Justice League, then you most likely know Green Lantern is a member and some believe it to be strange that he isn’t in the upcoming film. Green Lantern’s first appearance with the Justice League of America was in The Brave and The Bold #28 (released in 1960) and continued to be a member from then on. DC has announced that there will be a new Green Lantern and the film is scheduled to come out in 2020, although many fans think it would be a mistake to wait that long. However, with Aquaman, The Flash, and the often forgotten Cyborg making their first appearance with their origin stories coming later, it seems unlikely we will see him in this film.
A Tie Into The Multiverse
The CW’s The Flash and Arrow, alongside its growing list of spin-off television series, is known as the Arrowverse and it is connected to the multiverse. The multiverse is just an infinite number of realities that then have an infinite number of the DC superheroes, which is used to create different versions of the same characters and elements such as Clark Kent and Dark Clark Kent in The CW’s Smallville (2001-2011). All of this leads fans to think it will tie-in with the multiverse because of how Batman receives a warning from the Flash about the future. So potentially, this means we may see different versions of the main characters of the Justice League, which is always fun to see the actors play usually a darker version of themselves or portray the character with a different personality.
The Movie Will Represent The Flash and Flashpoint
Flashpoint is a popular DC comics storyline involving Barry Allen, or the Flash, going back in time and drastically altering the timeline of events causing the New 52 relaunch. Many say we have already seen a Flashpoint consequence in Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, so we could very well see another occur in the Justice League movie. If we do see another consequence in the film, this could lead to a multitude of opened doors for this storyline.
Hawkman and Hawkgirl Will Make A Guest Appearance
Again, if you are familiar with Justice League, you may be aware there was a Justice Society of America before the Justice League of America. Hawkman and Hawkgirl were part of the JSA with Hawkman as their ‘leader’, so it would make sense for them to appear. In the trailer where we see the Amazons and Atlanteans battle it out against Darkseid’s Parademons, if you look closely you can see two figures with wings flying high in the sky, thus leading many to believe that they could be Hawkman and Hawkgirl.
The Movie Will Take Place In Two Different Realities
A large majority of the DC universe is set in alternate realities so it is highly likely DC will cross over between two in one movie, sooner or later, and perhaps it might be this movie. In the trailer released at San Diego Comic Con, we see the Batmobile chasing the Parademons, but then a few seconds later, the sky changes and it remains the same chase. Could it be that this film will take place in two alternate realities? Only time will tell!
