I don't think so. John "Robin" Blake can be a passable Batman in Gotham City, taking down drug dealers, pimps and other assorted street crime. He is in no position to be a member of the Justice League. The guy lacks the necessary training, education, experience and resources to be formidable enough to hold his own against the sorts of foes the League has to face.

Then again, this is Warner Bros. It's the sort of nonsense they consider to be a good idea.

I'm not saying anything on this until we get ACTUAL confirmation.

That's all pretty much SOP these days. The studios intentionally leak a combo of disinformation and reality in order to continually stir up interest.

Warner Bros. 2015 Justice League movie may not have a director yet, but it looks like it has a villain. Latino Review is reporting that Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and their super colleagues will be throwing down against a major baddie, Darkseid from the subtly named planet, Apokolips, when the summer of 2015 rolls around.

If Darkseid, who was created by the legendary comic artist Jack Kirby, is indeed the villain who will be wreaking havoc in the DC movie universe, it's an interesting choice, given that Marvel plans to feature the villain Thanos in Avengers 2, which it plans to release that same summer.

Justice League's Darkseid vs. Avengers 2's Thanos

As Comic Book Legends Revealed points out, Thanos was "roughly based on Darkseid" (although the character's creator Jim Starlin didn't originally envision him as such.) The connection between the two characters could help ratchet up the competitive tension between the rival movies as release time grows closer. (It's only, like, years away.)

DC could also do some "our super-villain can kick your super-villain's ass" sassing based on IGN's Top 100 Comic Book Villains of All Time, in which Darkseid ranks sixth and Thanos is 47th.

Certainly the most ogical choice, but that means the film will need to introduce the mythology of each character as well as the mythology of Darkseid and Apokolips.

It can be done, but it will be tricky.

If Darkseid is indeed the main villain of Justice League, comparisons and talk of copying will abound in the non-fanboy audience. Avengers II will be coming out in May 2015, although I doubt Justice League will actually be released as early as planned. The fact that Thanos is a Marvel knock-off of Darkseid will be irrelevant. They've already seen a glimpse of him in The Avengers, and he will likely be featured as a behind the scenes villain in Guardians of the Galaxy.

It can be made to work if the project is handed over to a skilled writer and a director who understands the source material. Since the studio is WB though, this seems unlikely to be the ultimate outcome.

For Superman, Batman and Green Lantern, they won't have to do much background.

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=97998

Last month, HitFix piqued the interest of Batman fans with the rumor that Joseph Gordon-Levitt would return to the big screen as his John Blake character from The Dark Knight Rises (having now assumed the Batman mantle) in Warner Bros.' upcoming Justice League. Although the rumor was immediately denied by the actor's representatives, Movieline today caught up Christopher Nolan and asked him about the possibility directly.

"I can't talk about that," Nolan told the site with what they describe as a "Cheshire smile," "You know that."

Although Nolan's comments don't really imply anything one way or another, it's a good bet that they'll still fuel a great deal of continued speculation about the future of DC Comics on the big screen. Nolan is now producing Zack Snyder's Man of Steel and Snyder himself recently told The New York Post that his take on the iconic character would "keep them on course" for a 2015 ensemble film.

At this time, however, the only solid fact about Justice League is that the studio is currently working from a script by Will Beall and aiming for a 2015 release.

I can't see JGL as the Batman. I think it would make for some awesome continuity. Funny thing is I'm afraid of JGL's physical size being the problem but then again Michael Keating's Batman/Bruce Wayne is one of my all-time favs.

A few weeks ago, the rumor mill went crazy when it was 'revealed' that Darkseid would be the villain in the upcoming Justice League film. This was never confirmed by the studio and has since stayed a questionable rumor. Today, the same source of the Darkseid rumor, Latino Review, alleges that the film's script by Will Beal will be specifically based on three issues of the Justice League of America comic.

Released in 1980, issues 183-185 were written by Gerry Conway and drawn by George Perez. In the comic, Darkseid is planning to destroy Earth and put his home planet of Apokolips in its place. The story not only contains the Justice League of America but also the Justice Society of America from Earth-2, as the two teams were planning to meet up when Darkseid initiated his plan.

Again, treat this strictly as a rumor for now because not much is currently known about the upcoming film. No director is attached to the project and it remains to be seen if 2011's Green Lantern or next year's Man of Steel will tie into the film, though Zack Snyder recently said that his take on the iconic character would "keep them on course" for a 2015 ensemble film.

so would that mean there will be subtle hints to darkseid in the man of steel flick? like avengers hints in the other marvel films... if so... that would be pretty cool.

I think it just means that, unlike Nolan's Batman, Snyder's Superman can be used in a team-up film.

Since even in the comics Superman has always been the first superhero to appear in the DC Universe, it's pretty easy to use him as a starting off point, even if that wasn't the original intent.

With WB too averse to using anything that any Marvel film has done successfully in the past, I don't expect to see any post-credits scene inserted into the final print of Man of Steel to set up Justice League. Maybe they'll just re-shoot or tweak the final scene to include some kind of indication that other capes have popped up in the wake of Superman. Jimmy Olsen is surfing the net at the Daily Planet, and he comes across a series of YouTube clips- some guy dressed as a bat beating up a mugger that's been shot with a smartphone, a red blur disarming a bunch of bank robbers on some security footage, stuff like that.

If anyone in the film so much as makes a vague reference to Gotham or Batman, Geekdom will go crazy. Myself included.

This is all....fascinating. And ambitious. Darkseid, from a comic point of view, makes perfect sense. Though he might be a little vague for the uninitiated.

Again, since even in the comics Superman has always been the first superhero to appear in the DC Universe, it's pretty easy to use him as a starting off point, even if that wasn't the original intent. The original comics didn't feature any of the characters co-existing in the same universe. The first meeting of Superman and Batman didn't take place until Superman #76.
