'Justice League: Part One': Rumor Claims Script Too Good, May Need to be Simplified
New rumors are circling the internet regarding Waner Bros. and Zack Snyder's plan for the DC Cinematic Universe.
From what we can tell, it appears as if things are going too well when it comes down to the script, and thus the story might have to be toned down just a little bit.
Such an information should get DC fanboys in a frenzy since one of the main problems that haunted Man of Steel was the script. Many aspects of the movie was well done, but the writing, which was done by Goyer, was average at best.
The information states that folks who have read the script complained about a number of things, such as the script being too long or even too complicated for the average moviegoer. Comic book fans who know the lore might not have an issue with it, but fans are the minority here.
It would be interesting to know what the script will bring to the table, but this is the early stage of development so we expect a million things to change since the Justice League movie won't see the light of day until 2017. The leaked information, however, did point out who we should expect to be the villain.
Apparently, this person is Vril Dox, who is the original identity of Braniac in The New 52 comics. It makes sense for Brainiac to show up because the rumor claims the movie, currently, is codenamed Justice League: Brainiac's Saga, and it will be the first time we get to see Brainiac on the big screen.
We should mention that Vril Dox was originally Brainiac 2, but all that changed when he appeared in the New 52.
This extensive information is quite interesting, and we wouldn't mind at all if it turned out to be real. Having Brainiac as the main villain of the first two Justice League movies should cause fans to cry in excitement. We can only hope that Darkseid is not too far away.
Justice League: Part One won't hit theaters until November 2017. The second part will follow in 2019.
