With the release of Justice League this week, I thought it would break down my top five burning questions heading into DC’s first superhero team up.
- How will Superman come back?
If you pay attention during the final shot of Batman V Superman you will see dirt rise from the top of Clark Kent’s coffin, the same way the dirt rose the first time Superman flew. That mixed with the behind the scenes drama with Henry Cavill’s moustache and the fact it’s Superman, it is pretty easy to work out that The Last Son of Krypton will be back for Justice League. What isn’t clear is how will he come back? Kryptonian Technology? A Mother Box? The power of Lois Lane’s love? I guess we will have to wait and see.
- Will we see any Green Lanterns?
In one of the Trailers, Steppenwolf mentions that there are no Lantern’s on Earth, potentially referring to the Green Lantern Corp. We know that a Green Lantern Corps movie is in development, with rumours that one or two Lanterns may show up in Justice League. We could see them in the post credit scene, or maybe it was just a throw away line to tease the audience in a trailer.
- Will the Flash scene from Batman V Superman be explained?
There were a few dream sequences throughout BVS but one that feels like there is a deeper meaning is the scene with Flash appearing to warn Bruce. Now at the time the message feels like it is Flash warning Bruce that he was right that Superman is the enemy, but since the scene is yet to fully be explored, maybe he wasn’t warning Bruce at all. What if he was trying to tell Bruce that Lois is the key to bringing Clark back? What if Future Bruce sent Flash back to tell Bruce how to resurrect Superman? Either way I think the scene needs to be explained.
- What was Wonder Woman doing for the 100 years between Wonder Woman and BVS?
This one is a bit of a stretch but it is a fair question to ask. What did she do for 100 years? The ending of Wonder Woman some what contradicts the ending of BVS with Wonder Woman discovering her love for Man. So what did she do during that time period, did she return to Themyscira? Or did she fight in the next World War? How did she end up working in the Louvre? Some of the questions might be answered but I expect we might have to wait until Wonder Woman 2 to get the whole truth.
- How will the movie end?
Perhaps this is the biggest question of them all. Clearly not everything has worked out for Warner Brother and DC when they set out to build a cinematic universe, and in fact Justice League was originally set to be released as a two-part film before it was decided by the studios to be just one film. The universe itself has been changed several times with different stand-alone films being announced and cancelled and announced again. Currently there is only one film set for release in 2018, James Wan’s Aquaman, then the films that are in preproduction or development are, Shazam, Suicide Squad 2, Wonder Woman 2 and Flashpoint. Warner Brother has claimed that they will wait to see how Justice League does before they try and restructure their cinematic universe, which leads to the question, how will the movie end? Will it set up a world of stand-alone films? Will The Flash run back in time to reset the universe? What direction will the universe take?
That’s it everyone, those are my 5 burning questions going into Justice League. Let me know in the comment sections what you think they answers might be and if you have any other burning questions. Feel free to like and share this post.
