After Warner Bros. finally revealed their DC Comics lineup earlier today, more details are now coming into place about this shared universe, which kicks off in 2016 with Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We reported last week that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will introduce the villain for Justice League Part 1, but now a new report from Badass Digest reveals who the Justice League Part 2 villain will be. Naturally, there will be spoilers revealed below, so read on at your own risk.
The end of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will introduce Brainiac as the main villain in Justice League Part 1, while bringing in Justice League heroes Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) to join forces with Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). They are said to be uniting to, “face the larger threat that has manipulated Lex Luthor and maybe even Bruce Wayne,” which is Brainiac.
This new report reveals that after these heroes defeat Brainiac at the end of Justice League Part 1, fans will get their first look at the new Green Lantern, who warns the team that another villain is coming, Darkseid, who the team will face in Justice League Part 2. It’s also worth noting that Zack Snyder is coming back to direct both Justice League Part 1 and Justice League Part 2.
Our report from last week revealed that these villains are all coming to Earth as a result of the Kryptonian beacon set off by Kal-el (Henry Cavill), which brought Zod (Michael Shannon) to Earth in Man of Steel. This beacon will be what brings both Brainiac and Darkseid to Earth. Badass Digest also reports that the corpse of General Zod will play a “big role” in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the movies that follow. Jason Momoa‘s Aquaman is also said to surface after The World Engine destroys his underwater city of Atlantis.
