Is this the storyline for the Justice League movie?
Where is Warner Bros taking its Justice League film, due in 2015? We might just have the answer...
Warning: inevitably, there may be spoilers for the Justice League film here, if all of these rumours are true...
After the folks over at Latino Review landed themselves a tasty exclusive with the potential reveal of Darkseid as the antagonist for 2015's Justice League movie, it might now have topped that by uncovering the comic books on which the film will be based.
It would appear, if the rumours are correct, that the film will be based on the 1980 run of Justice League Of America. Specifically, issues 183-185 of the run, which were penned by Gerry Conway.
It featured the teaming up of the Justice League of America and the Justice Society of America as they set out to thwart Darkseid's plan of destroying the Earth and moving his planet of Apokolips into its place. Sounds like a reasonable thing to do.
The film is still without a director, but this is apparently the source of inspiration for screenwriter Will Beale, who has been tasked with bringing DC's characters together in an effective way.
