The Wrap's Jeff Sneider has reported more potential news from Zack Snyder's Justice League movie. He seems to have come across some information that suggests Martian Manhunter, Max Lord, and Darkseid will be in the movie.
This isn't the first time we've heard a couple of these names, as both Manhunter and Darkseid have been previously been rumored to be in the film. Apparently Darkseid will be the main villain in the story. This is the first time I've heard Max Lord attached to the project, though. The news comes from an agency grid that Sneider tweeted that you can see below:
What's interesting about this is that Warner Bros. superhero movie screenwriter David S. Goyer went off on Manhunter and criticized him, saying:
"He can't be f***ing called the Martian Manhunter because that's goofy. He can be called Manhunter… The whole deal with Martian Manhunter is he's an alien living amongst us… So he comes down to Earth and decides, unlike Superman who already exists in the world now, that he's just going to be a homicide detective…"
Maybe this was just a ploy to throw fans off. One thing we do know is that come Comic-Con in July a lot of the answers the questionx we have will be revealed. Rumors will be confirmed or denied. I'm curious to see how this all plays out.
This report follows the recent superhero movie line-up rumor that involves Shazam, Sandman, Wonder Woman, Flash, and Green Lantern.
