Today, Devin from Badass Digest posted a new article titled, "Who Is Star-Lord’s Father?" In it, Devin drops a small but juicy nugget regarding the DC Comics' cinematic universe. According to him fans will have to wait a long time to see Superman's most formidable foe, Darkseid, on the big screen.

"My sources tell me not to expect Darkseid in the DC movieverse until Justice League 2, so that means a Guardians 2 in 2017 would definitely have the Eternals beating the New Gods to big screens." - Devin

Darkseid first appeared in DC Comics' Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #134 (November 1970). He was created by legendary comic book writer/artist Jack Kirby. He's considered one of, if not the most powerful supervillain in DC Comics' universe. You probably know him as the big baddie that shoots beams of engery ("Omega Effect") from his eyes that zig and zag. 

BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE - Zack Snyder will direct. It's written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. The film stars: Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne. The cast also includes: Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Ma Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. Will arrive in theaters May 6, 2016.

Lame, DC fails again...

we demand a justice league confirmation right now
Lozzy - 8/3/2014, 9:03 PM
Then whos going to be the villian?
TheAbaryMan369 - 8/3/2014, 9:03 PM
Shut the [frick] up Faraci.
TheAbaryMan369 - 8/3/2014, 9:04 PM
If this were true, he'd have put it in an actual article instead of just making this a random remark on a completely unrelated article.
Lozzy - 8/3/2014, 9:06 PM
Was it ever confirmed that Justice League is coming out 2017?
MrBlackJack - 8/3/2014, 9:06 PM

JL isn't even written yet, so how the [frick] will anybody know what's going on in JL 2?! Let alone BadAssDigest!

MrBlackJack - 8/3/2014, 9:08 PM
Oh yeah, as per usual... BadAssDigest?
Lozzy - 8/3/2014, 9:10 PM

I think Marvel have a movie on that date. I dont think WB want to play this game of chicken two years in a row.
MrBlackJack - 8/3/2014, 9:11 PM

Read the article, it's down at the bottom.
JFerguson - 8/3/2014, 9:11 PM
Wouldn't be surprised if dc used mini Darkseid as the villain, aka Mongul
DaVinci31 - 8/3/2014, 9:12 PM
"Good, don't start out with your biggest guns. That would be like Marvel jumping into Thanos for Avengers Assemble.9"


I could easily see Aquaman, Black Adam and even Doomsday being the main villain, anyway.

MrBlackJack - 8/3/2014, 9:12 PM
Faraci wrote, even worse.
yonny616 - 8/3/2014, 9:12 PM
What if the villain is Black Adam?
Ipitythefool - 8/3/2014, 9:16 PM
Why not rush Darkseid? They've rushed everything else.
String - 8/3/2014, 9:16 PM
Putting a big bad like Darkseid in a sequel is pretty early. Where do you go from there once that story is told? At least Marvel has earned the Avengers fighting Thanos with 17 movies before Avengers 3.
MrBlackJack - 8/3/2014, 9:17 PM
JL isn't confirmed to have a date yet. THR, Finke, and LR say 2017, The Wall Street Journal and another source (which I can't remember the name of) have said 2018.
SauronsBANE - 8/3/2014, 9:17 PM
The hate for Devin Faraci and BadassDigest is absolutely mind-boggling. I always knew most CBM power users have this weird one-sided rivalry with him (not saying you specifically, nail), but I had no idea CBM users felt that way too. As far as I'm concerned, BadassDigest has the absolute BEST users and comment sections on the internet, the BEST all-around writer and film analyst (Film Crit Hulk), and completely dependable and reliable scoops from none other than Devin Faraci. You guys are missing out.

"so that means a Guardians 2 in 2017 would definitely have the Eternals beating the New Gods to big screens"

Damn...we loving painting that competitive picture with these two...i love it.

Its kind of interesting how Kirby still has an influence even on later Marvel characters he didn't technically create.
Lozzy - 8/3/2014, 9:17 PM

Already having BVS on the same date as Cap 3 is going to put a massive dent in the box office. If WB want maximum profit from their DC movies they're going to have to move.
TheRationalNerd - 8/3/2014, 9:20 PM
Umm...you guys do know that the JL has better baddies right? Don't believe me? Check out the episodes on Netflix. Would be cool to see them go against Hawkman and his army.
DraculaX - 8/3/2014, 9:20 PM
JFerguson - 8/3/2014, 9:20 PM
I can definitely see them using Aquaman as the villain. With him as the main baddie(probably because of world engine thingy hurting the seas of something) and Momoa playing, Aquaman will be considered even more of a badass. And then he "apologizes" at the ending and joins the JL. Sounds like a cluster[frick], but the concept could work.
TheRationalNerd - 8/3/2014, 9:20 PM
*has more baddies*

DraculaX - 8/3/2014, 9:22 PM
@MrBlackjack that source you're talking about is the magazine that posted Superman's first photo...I think it was USA today or something.
MrBlackJack - 8/3/2014, 9:23 PM

Oh, now that you say that I remember now and it was USA today. Thanks!
pickleweasel2 - 8/3/2014, 9:27 PM
Uh it was reported a week ago that Terrio is being courted to write JL, which means JL hasn't been written yet, which means how the [frick] would anyone know who and who is not going to be in it. Even the writer probably doesn't know yet.
DraculaX - 8/3/2014, 9:28 PM
Thanos look better in the end credit scene of Avengers then what he does right now.
matthuliz - 8/3/2014, 9:29 PM

DC FANS, click this link instead to know more about Batman & Robin on BvS: DoJ.


RealDCGuy - 8/3/2014, 9:29 PM
@Bender I'm gonna go ahead and blame you for the annoying "DC is better" spam we keep getting on marvel threads.

"Uh it was reported a week ago that Terrio is being courted to write JL, which means JL hasn't been written yet, which means how the [frick] would anyone know who and who is not going to be in it. Even the writer probably doesn't know yet."

See, when people say things like that, it's actually unintentionally insulting DC/WB. That's pretty much saying that they're making things up as they go, with absolutely no planning or forethought whatsoever. In my mind, that's something MUCH more worthy of getting angry about than a scoop about Darkseid being saved for Justice League 2.
Knightfall225 - 8/3/2014, 9:31 PM
I really hope they fight Atlantis in the first movie. maybe Jason Mamoa being in BvsS has to do something with that.
Phronesis - 8/3/2014, 9:34 PM
I have no problem with this as I believe his presence will be known.
SauronsBANE - 8/3/2014, 9:34 PM
@MrBlackjack, Haha you're one of the coolest users on this site, but I couldn't disagree with you more on this one. And that makes me sad. I mean, even Gal Gadot agrees with me! =P

MrBlackJack - 8/3/2014, 9:35 PM

If a script isn't completed then it's very unlikely they'll shoot back-to-back. However, as long as Terrio doesn't take forever to write the JL, then it's very likely that the two will have close productions. Back-to-back would mean it's one conjoint production, and you can't have that done easily without a JL script. But if Terrio gets done with the JL in a reasonable amount of time, JL's production could pick up very shortly after BvS's production. Even if they don't shoot back-to-back a 2017 date is possible. But yes, for now 2017 or 2018 is what they're aiming for.
Phronesis - 8/3/2014, 9:35 PM
Brainiac will probably be their first villain, and depending if my own speculation is correct, makes perfect sense.
DraculaX - 8/3/2014, 9:36 PM
Levi called, he wants his bender gimmick back.
Phronesis - 8/3/2014, 9:37 PM
Doesn't Morgan Edge exist in this universe?
