  • The villains for Justice League are Ares and Ocean Master.[37]
  • Darkseid will still have a heavy presence in the film and will be the villain for the second Justice League film.[37]

StoryEdit

  • Superman and Batman will be the basis of the film.[44]
  • Abin Sur's death could possibly open the film, helping to introduce Clark Kent to the threat coming from Abin's killer.
  • Brainiac be teased at the end of Batman v Superman. Apparently, when Superman activated the Kryptonian ship which led to General Zod heading to Earth, it also was picked up on by Brainiac[45][42]
  • Green Lantern will appear as he tells the team about to face the larger threat that has manipulated Lex Luthor and maybe even Bruce Wayne.[46]
  • CONFIRMED! Batman will be the lead of the film.[47]
  • The film's plot reads "The world's greatest heroes are assembled to form the Justice League, to combat a threat beyond each individual's capabilities. The story involves Darkseid planning the destruction of Earth by blasting it with a ray that’ll move Apokolips into the Earth’s place."[48]
  • CONFIRMED! The film will be a lighter tone.[49]
  • CONFIRMED! Batman assembles the Justice League to combat any threats in the wake of Superman's death as well as trying find a way to resurrect Superman.
  • Bruce will pass the mantle of Batman to someone else.[50]
  • The team will battle Altantis.[51][52]
  • The Watchtower will appear.[53][54]
  • Superman will have a beard when he returns.[55]
  • There's much to learn to learn on Darkseid's attempt to subjugate the Earth 30,000 years ago.
  • Supposedly after the conclusion of the ancient battle with Darkseid, the team-up between "Man", the Atlanteans and the Amazons led to a war/feud between Atlantis and Themyscira.[56][57]
  • Black Canary (or Black Canary's ancestor) was a member of that original resistance group that battled Darkseid's forces many centuries ago.[56][57]
  • Cyborg will be the key to Batman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the Justice League discovering Darkseid/Steppenwolf's plan, which is a bit obvious, considering a Mother Box was used in creating his cybernetic body.[56][57]
  • Two remaining Mother Boxes reside with Atlantis and the Amazons respectively.[56][57]
  • Ares will be weakened after Wonder Woman but the recent conflicts with the Kryptonians and previous wars have re-powered him. He will spark a war between Atlanteans and the Amazons so he can reach the height of his powers. Ocean Master betrays Aquaman and takes the thrown and leads the attack on the Amazons.[37]
  • Bruce Wayne and Amanda Waller have different views about metahumans. Bruce believes they can do good while Waller believes they are a threat and should be contained.[37]
  • Batman will be the strategist of the team. Flash will be the sweeper. Cyborg will have a combination of long and short range attacks. Aquaman's fighting style is straight up brutal.[37]
  • Lex is let out of prison and gets the public to love him. He tries to manipulate the public into hating heroes like Batman and Superman but it doesn’t work.[25]
  • Later, the League get their asses kicked by Steppenwolf but then Superman returns and weakens him. The full Justice League then works together to defeat Steppenwolf in an awesome climactic fight reminiscent of the big fight scene in The Avengers. Superman has a beard, long hair, tattered/scorched-looking black suit, and is thin at first (not as thin as Flashpoint Superman but still thin). During the fight with Steppenwolf, you see his full strength return with each swing and with each second he’s in the sunlight.[25]
  • There’s a full Darkseid tease at the end but won't be the villain in Justice League 2.[25]
  • Superman and Batman will fight over the leadership position.[58]
  • The film's Synopsis reads: "In the wake of Clark Kent/Superman’s (Cavill) death at the hands of Doomsday in BvS, vigilante Bruce Wayne/Batman (Affleck) reevaluates his extreme methods and begins reaching out to extraordinary heroes to assemble a team of crime-fighters to defend earth from all kinds of threats. Together with Diana Prince/Wonder Woman (Gadot), Batman seeks out cybernetically enhanced former college football star Vic Stone/Cyborg (Fisher), speedster Barry Allen/The Flash (Miller) and Atlantean warrior king Arthur Curry/Aquaman (Momoa). They face off against Steppenwolf (Hinds), the herald and second-in-command to alien warlord Darkseid, who is charged by Darkseid with hunting down three artifacts hidden on Earth."[59]
