Another Puny God? Justice League May Have Found Their Big Bad

By Jodi Clager | Trade News | December 3, 2012 | Comments ()


Another day, another bit of rumor concerning the Justice League movie. How do you compete with The Avengers when they've set the bar so high for superhero team movies? Well, Will Beal (Gangster Squad) is supposedly writing in Superman nemesis of decades and manipulative god Darkseid.

I will admit here and now that I am not overly familiar with Darkseid, as I have a huge dislike of Superman and prefer my Batman on his own. However, I have concerns that it may be a misstep to give the Justice League an immortal adversary. There is no way to avoid comparisons to The Avengers, both because of its success and because Marvel and DC are competitors, but why invite more with your villain god? Another concern is that Darkseid will be pure CGI or motion capture or whatnot. Although that can be done well, have you seen Green Lantern? I'm not sold on DC being able to pull him off without looking like shit. I'd like to be more optimistic, but I've been burned by you before, DC.

Here's what Darkseid looked like on "Smallville":

Damn it.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
