If all goes according to plan, three massive geek movies are coming in 2015: "Star Wars: Episode 7," "The Avengers 2" and "Justice League," which equals non-stop rumors for the next little while. In fact, it was just last week that we dealt with the quick rise and fall of the "Joseph-Gordon-Levitt-is-the-new-Batman" rumors and now, "Justice League" may or may not have picked its villain.

Darkseid Justice League

If all goes according to plan, three massive geek movies are coming in 2015: "Star Wars: Episode 7," "The Avengers 2" and "Justice League," which equals non-stop rumors for the next little while. In fact, it was just last week that we dealt with the quick rise and fall of the "Joseph-Gordon-Levitt-is-the-new-Batman" rumors and now, "Justice League" may or may not have picked its villain.

Latino Review is reporting that Darkseid will be the one that forces the major DC comic heroes to come together. The head of the subtlety named planet Apokolips, he's basically a God whose powers are, well, God-like. He's the kind of foe that would require every availalble hero to help bring him down so we suppose it makes sense. That said, it's not clear if this baddie is the focus of Will Beall's script that was comissioned way back in 2011. Have details of that guarded script leaked, or are WB hoping for someone else to rewrite?

More questions than answers at this point, but if this is true, do you think it's right direction for the mega movie? Let us know below.
