After the events of #BatmanvsSuperman and the recent castings (including the one of Armie Hammer) there's a very good chance that #JusticeLeague could be based on this 2014 #DCAU film #JusticeLeagueWar. The animated film is an adaptation of the story Justice League: Origin by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee, the first story in DC's 2011 DC Universe relaunch. Since Geoff Johns is already DC's new Chief Creative Officer, it wouldn't be too big of a stretch for him to want to adapt this movie to the big screen, with a few alterations of course.
So why am I so sure that the Justice League movie could be derived off of this popular project, well there were plenty of clues in the film
1)When Lex Luthor Get's Locked...
the sounds he makes are the ones #Darksied's minions make when he arrives on earth.
are seen in the back in Batman's visions MORE than once!
3)The Whole Movie is About...
how the JL get together to fight Darksied who was teased in the Dawn of Justice and is the villain of the upcoming JL movie. It even has people objecting to superheroes because of their super powers! Sound familiar?
travels back in time, though we're not told about that and I doubt that #Flash himself would know this yet, in Batman vs Superman to tell #Batman to keep an eye on "Lois Lane as she is the key", this would make sense as...
Becomes evil in Justice League War for a short time and #Batman has to convince him to see his humanity and this is perfect as this would explain why Lois Lane is the key as she can bring him back to himself. The evil #Superman story is something we know is going to happen and thus fits right in. Although many thing that this could be the start of the #Injustice comic book storyline, pulling that off would require a multitude of characters that have already been introduced to the audience. So that we actually feel something when they turn evil. Thus it's more probable that the evil Superman storyline will start and end in this movie alone and won't go at all into Injustice territory.
this movie also functioned as an origin story for #RayFisher and believe it or not has the exact same #Cyborg cameo scene in the Batman Vs Superman movie, well there's just like that one in Justice League War!
6)There's also SHAZAM
whose movie is slated to be released just after Justice League Part One, and #Shazam plays a key role in this movie.
7) Furthermore an Aquaman movie
is also slated for release which could coincide with the Justice League sequel as this movie's sequel was Justice League: Throne of Atlantis not only introduced #Aquaman but also linked him to the Justice League. Ofcourse in Justice League War, Aquaman isn't in the team yet. In his place is Shazam, but I guess it'll be easy to replace Shazam with Aquaman. Who knows maybe we'll get a cameo of Shazam too?
has quite the role to play in this film. His budding bro-mance with the Flash takes center stage and he and Flash are responsible for most of the laughs. Still in a movie universe that's already too grim, there needs to be some light and with the speculations that Armie Hammer has been cast as Green Lantern, there seems to be more and more evidence piling up for why this movie would be a great fit for the big screen.
Even the doomsday battle scene reminded me of the Justice League's fight against Darksied that's how similar the two storylines are. Justice League war was an exceptionally well written movie, it was light and fun while staying true to the comics. In fact I'd say that it as much better than both the actual #Avenger movies. So anyone looking for a good DC movie to watch should definitely give this great gem a go.
