New 'Justice League' Team Line-Up Rumor Keeps the Expected Heroes
Just after the New Year, a rumor started circulating about the team line-up for Warner Bros. anticipated superhero ensemble Justice League. In addition to superheroes, it also included mentions of Lois Lane and Alfred Pennyworth. Now a more reliable rumor comes from Latino Review (who just broke news on potential cast members for Guardians of the Galaxy) saying that the Justice League will be composed of only Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and The Flash. If you're disappointed that a couple key heroes aren't on that list, there might be some hope for those missing names still. Read on!
Though the film is said to concentrate on those five core heroes, there's apparently a chance for Aquaman and Martian Manhunter to get small cameos, likely to set up for a second movie or future individual franchises. And there's also a much smaller possibility that Hawkman might show up at some point. Of course, we're not sure who all will play these heroes, whether Zack Snyder's Man of Steel kicks off this DC Comics universe on the big screen, or if it has some sort of tie to Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy. Hopefully we'll have answers to these questions soon as production looms nearer to meet the 2015 release.
