Footage of an early version of the Justice League VR game has made its way online, showing playable missions for Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash, and Cyborg, with a tease for a Superman-specific mission to be added in a later version.
In the gameplay shown, each member of the first iteration of the Justice League is given a mission of their own – Batman uses the Batmobile to chase after armored vehicles with stolen goods, Aquaman has to stop a sea monster from its rampage, the Flash has to disarm a bomb attached to a moving subway, Wonder Woman has to face off against Parademons on Themyscira, and Cyborg has to destroy an army of airborne drones that are attacking a science facility.
Much like with the marketing for the movie, the game reminds audiences that Superman will be in Justice League, but leaves no clues as to how he’ll appear in the actual film. Presumably, Superman’s VR mission is something that will be saved for an update close to the release of the movie itself.
Justice League unites on November 17, 2017. The superhero epic features a cast that includes Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne (Batman), Henry Cavill as Kal-El/Clark Kent (Superman), Gal Gadot as Diana Prince (Wonder Woman), Jason Mamoa as Orin/Arthur Curry (Aquaman), Ezra Miller as Barry Allen (The Flash), Ray Fisher as Victor Stone (Cyborg), Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Robin Wright as General Antiope, J. K. Simmons as Commissioner James ‘Jim’ Gordon, Joe Morton as Dr. Silas Stone, Amber Heard as Mera, Billy Crudup as Dr. Henry Allen, and Kiersey Clemons as Iris West. Julian Lewis Jones and Michael McElhatton are also in the movie in unspecified roles.
7 Green Lantern Stories We’d Love To See Adapted For The Big Screen
While it’s still unclear whether or not Green Lantern will debut in the upcoming Justice League film, the hero is eventually set to hit the big screen again in 2020 with Green Lantern Corps. The real mystery is what kind of Lantern stories will the movie have and who will wield a ring? The only thing I know is it’s not a good idea to wait for Ryan “Deadpool” Reynolds to mutter the Green Lantern oath on the big screen anytime soon.
There are so many stories and unique Green Lanterns the movie could draw from, so at the end of the day I hope the material is treated with the respect it deserves. It took some hard work, but I whittled my favorite stories down to this list of seven easily adaptable arc that show off some of the action and emotion Green Lantern has to offer. Don’t expect to recommend any simple origin stories here, though — man-oh-man am I tired of seeing those.
