As of right now, we know that the team in Zack Snyder’s first Justice League movie will consist of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg. We probably won’t be seeing Green Lantern until the second ensemble movie, but what about other DC superheroes?

While doing the press rounds for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, director Zack Snyder spoke with IGN and discussed why he chose this roster for the first Justice League movie and teased that we might see more members down the line:

“I thought long and hard about who to bring in, like who the Justice League would be made up of, and to me those are the heavy hitters right now. Of course, there’s room for some more, and I absolutely had to keep some back for the next little shock of awesomeness. Those guys felt like the guys who needed to surface.”

You can watch the full interview below, but be warned, it contains major spoilers for Batman v Superman, so you may want to avoid it if you haven’t seen the movie yet.

What do you guys think? Are you looking forward to seeing which other superheroes will join the Justice League and who else would you want to see in the team? Sound-off your thoughts in the comment section below.

    Martian Manhunter surprise.
    I think they see how popular he is on Supergirl and they have a guy that could easily be used as him already in the world.
    Makes perfect sense.

      My thoughts exactly

    • Who do you mean when you say they already have someone who could easily be used?

      • John Smith

        Harry Lennix, he played the general in MoS and a senator in BvS.

        • YES! That’s who I thought you were referring to! xD
          Personally I’d like it. It’s a bit of a stretch seeing how far seated in the government he is but that’s why (in my opinion) a shocking twist of his revealing transformation which would make it that more great xD

      Looks like I wasn’t only one that thought the same thing about Martian Manhunter.

      When Zod said “there’s someone hiding among you” in MOS, the screen honed in on Lennix.

      • Super Shanko

        Maybe that’s why HE read the DKR passage. The ultimate foreshadowing.

        • SAMURAI36

          Oh yeah, that’s right I remember that. Even more awesome!!

  • I really want them to bring in ICON. Probably not for JL part 1 or 2 but later on I hope he comes into the mix.

    • SAMURAI36

      I’d absolutely LOVE that!!
