Not content with just a World’s Finest storyline, DC and Legendary Pictures have announced the additions of even more characters to the already overpopulated Man Of Steel sequel, tentatively titled Batman vs. Superman.
The list, consisting of Captain Marvel, Martian Manhunter, Lobo, Booster Gold, Blue Beetle, Guy Gardner, Supergirl, Zatana, and Gorilla Grodd, is sure to be met with mixed emotions from fans.
Director Zach Snyder stated, “I mean, we already have Batman and Wonder Woman on board. So I was thinking that if we get these other guys in here too, we can skip making a whole bunch of movies and just go into Justice League next year. I mean, you know who these guys are from the comics. You don’t need a whole movie per guy. Why carry your eggs in several baskets when you just cram ’em all into one really awesome basket?”
On the heels of this news, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson – already in talks with DC – has stated his desire to portray any of these roles. “There’d be challenges for sure, especially with Zatana or Gorilla Grodd – but I’m a huge fan of what they’re doing with this movie, and The Rock has never backed down from a challenge.”
While few plot details exist, Snyder guarantees at least “8 seconds of screen time per character” and an “older and grittier feel.”
