Zack Snyder Teases ‘Justice League’ Villain; Praises Ben Affleck

Even though Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is still a couple of months away, director Zack Snyder, as well as most of the cast of the movie, are already gearing up in order to start filming Justice League Part 1 later this year. While speaking to The Lowdown (via to promote Dorito’s final Clash the Superbowl contest, the director offered praise for Ben Affleck — who will make his debut as the Caped Crusader in Batman v Superman — and teased the mystery villain of Justice League. Here’s what he had to say:

We’re working on Justice League right now, right? In a weird way, Justice League is the next step for these characters to form a bigger team. Maybe there’s a bigger enemy to fight… [Affleck] is an amazing Batman….He’s a great Batman.

Who could be more powerful than Doomsday? We’re likely going to find out within the next few months during the production of Justice League, but there’s also a chance that the identity of the villain will be revealed when Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016. For now, feel free to speculate in the comment section below.
