Darkseid Hits the Big Screen

2015 is going to be a big year for our spandex wearing heroes. The Avengers will have their much anticipated sequel and DC fans will finally have a live action Justice League film. Bought damn time! It all started with the Man of Steel set to hit theaters next year and WB stating that it will role out a film featuring all our favorites. Without a director yet picked, or even a set cast, rumors are already flourishing on the internet. And all signs point to Darkseid, the ruling god of Apokolips! And it makes perfect sense. All Justice League members are phenomenal heroes in their own right but will need a global threat to unite them under one banner. Darkseid, created by the legendary Jack Kirby in 1970, is generally depicted on a quest to find the Anti-Life Equation that will help him subjugate all free will from the universe. Hellbent on amassing power, he utilizes his Omega Sanction eye lasers to vaporize peons and enlists the services of Granny Goodness and her Furies. In the latest Justice League comic series, Darkseid is used by writer Geoff Jones as the unifying big bad to bring together our heroes. Darkseid has also shown up on Smallville as the final seasons antagonist, and in the direct to DVD feature Superman/Batman: Apocalypse. Both of which are excellent.

So if rumors hold true, what can we expect to see from Darkseid in 2015? Will the New Gods show up? Perhaps Barda as one of the furies? Or that clown of an anchor Godfrey perhaps. What does the nerdosphere hope to see, and who do you think will make a great Darkseid?

    Avengers 2 and JLA film in the same summer? Not to mention both Thanos and Darkseid on the big screen in the same summer… this is too much. I am so happy right now.
