Another breach of security has occurred, this time at the Fortress of Solitude otherwise known as Warner Brothers. It seems a plethora of details about upcoming DC movie projects have leaked and we have them to share with you today. Now, if you don’t want to have the surprise of what is in store for upcoming DC films spoiled for you, you are definitely going to want to stop reading now. If you don’t mind, read ahead, then make the JUMP to the forum and join in the discussion.
Man of Steel 2
According to the leaked report, Man of Steel 2 will drop in 2020, and they will NOT use the name Superman anywhere in the title. Brainiac will be the villain, and he’ll be the result of Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) using alien tech to enhance existing LexOS. The report says that the Man of Steel sequel could introduce secondary characters like Supergirl and/or Superboy. They also say that DC is trying to recruit the likes of J.J. Abrams and Duncan Jones to direct the film … which sounds crazy, until you remember that J.J. Abrams once almost directed a Superman movie called Flyby.
Justice League Details
The leaked report confirms that Steppenwolf is the villain, but adds that Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) — having been freed from prison — helps bring Steppenwolf to Earth in exchange for technology and information. The report states that Lex is still trying to get the public to hate superheroes, but his plan is failing this time around.
As for Superman, the leaked report does confirm that when Henry Cavill steps back into the Superman suit — because we all know he isn’t going to stay dead — he will have a beard, long hair, a tattered black suit, and he will be skinny af. But, in a very cool sounding sequence, Cavill will appear to get stronger with every punch thrown in a battle, because Superman will be in our sun longer with each passing second. The report also claims that there will be a scene involving Joker (Jared Leto) and Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), where they are committing a crime and expecting to be caught by Batman, only, the whole Justice League shows up, and it’s a comedic “Holy shit!” moment.
Green Lantern indeed will show up at the end of Justice League, possible in a mid-credits teaser. And there are reasons to believe why this MAY be true. First, if Steppenwolf finds some way to come to Earth from Apokolips, then it’s easy to explain why Green Lantern would need to come down to our planet to investigate. Also, DC has made it clear that they want to have a Green Lantern Corps film in the DCEU, going so far has to give it a 2020 release date (but no real details beyond that).
Darkseid is shelved, the report states that the Injustice League, the Crime Syndicate and The Society are all options for Justice League 2, mainly because “they really want multiple villains for the sequel for some reason.” To that end, it’s being reported that the Tower of Babel plot is also being discussed.
Teen Titans Movie
there WILL be a Teen Titans movie, and that Deathstroke (played by Joe Manganiello) will be the main antagonist
They say that the character will fight alongside Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and that there will be a lengthy battle between Black Manta’s army and both Aquaman and Aqualad before the film’s epic conclusion. Seems like a silly character to introduce alongside Momoa’s stoic Aquaman, but who know? Anything is possible at this point.
the leaked DC report has more details about the DCEU’s version of Captain Cold, who they repeatedly describe as “creepy.” According to the report, Captain Cold will wear “a sleek mechanical suit that has the same color scheme and pattern as his comic book incarnation.” They also say that the movie will have a lot of fun with their own interpretation of the Speed Force, which has been a hit on The CW’s version of The Flash, and should be very creative and different in the movie.
