10 Justice League Members Who Should Join The DCEU Next

Previous1 of 11

Justice League
The Justice League isn’t limited to the six members we’ll see in Zack Snyder’s film later this year. The team has an expansive roster that features dozens of reserve characters ready to help the Justice League save the world on a moment’s notice.

With movies like the Green Lantern Corps and Shazam in the pipelines, it’s clear more heroes will be introduced to the DCEU soon. The Avengers featured a small team and it only grew as more characters were introduced into the Marvel movie universe. The Justice League is gonna need all the help it can get to fight Darkseid and keep the streets safe from lower-tier villains like Deathstroke and Joker.

Did I forget to include your favorite Justice League member? Well let me know in the comments why Fire and Firestorm are better choices.

    how many movies are they making any how many will be eventually made is the question but big mistake not offering him green lantern corps

    • Darthmanwe

      Chances are, he wasn’t ‘offered’ anything. There’s a good chance he pitched Batgirl, like he pitched WW years ago.

      Whedon isn’t the kind of director to be pointed to a project anymore, he does what he wants.

    Great news, if this pans out.

    WB/DC realizing their women are buckets and buckets of cash.

  • Maxi Iroh

    Will this be a Batgirl film or Birds of Prey? In my opinion Birds of Prey is the better alternative.

    • Matias Gagliardone

      I don’t think Batgirl should have a movie just for herself
