Zack Snyder Hints at Bigger Villain for JUSTICE LEAGUE
After the recent trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was released, many fans wondered why they showed so much, especially with the reveal of Doomsday. Doomsday is one of the deadliest villains in the DC universe. This is the monster that actually killed Superman in the comics. Since the release of the trailer, we learned that that there will be an even bigger threat than Doomsday. There's a possibility that could carry over into Justice League.
During a recent interview with Obsev, director Zack Snyder teases a bigger villain in Justice League, talks about how Ben Affleck is amazing as Batman, and explains why Batman v Superman is a fun film.
"We're working on Justice League right now, right? In a weird way, Justice League is the next step for these characters to form a bigger team. Maybe there's a bigger enemy to fight."
Of course, there's a bigger villain to fight! There has to be some kind of reason for all these heroes to band together. Who could this villain be? Well, there have been rumors that it could be Darkseid or Brainiac. Nothing is confirmed yet, but they are certainly possibilities.
Snyder goes on to say that "[Affleck] is an amazing Batman... He's a great Batman." I wouldn't expect the director to say anything less about his leading man. It's not like he's going to come out and say that Affleck sucks in the role. From what I've seen in the trailers, though, the actor does look like he gives a solid performance, and I'm looking forward to seeing more. As for what the director finds fun about Batman v Superman, he explains:
“I think the fun of the movie is that in the end it’s a drama. They have to figure out each other to fight each other. So it’s about what makes them tick and how that’s going to work out in a conflict.”
