Justice League Cast Reveals Which DC Villains They Want To Fight In The Sequel


The second post-credits scene of Justice League teases a development to come that should leave DC fans salivating. As Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor meets with Joe Manganiello’s Deathstroke (making his DCEU debut), we get a hint that the Legion of Doom, a league of united supervillains, is on the way. Nothing has been confirmed just yet, mind you, but we can imagine that the LoD may appear in a potential Justice League 2.

On the topic of this reveal, three of the film’s stars have named which DC antagonists they’d love to go toe-to-toe with in future outings. First off, Ray Fisher came up with a character who would be a perfect match for a techno-themed hero like Cyborg.

“I think Brainiac would be pretty dope to fight. I know he’s not in the Legion of Doom, specifically, but I count him among the biggest baddies of all time. Seeing what full-tech could do against half-tech/half-human. Black Manta would be an interesting fight, but I think Cyborg could take him. And Lex Luthor, obviously. His intellect is beyond, and I’d love to see what he’d cook up … I don’t know if there’s plans to put him in the suit, but as a fan of the animated series, I would love to see how that would be.”

Aquaman himself, Jason Momoa, came up with a few names as well, saying that he feels Arthur Curry could take on anyone due to his devil may care nature. In particular, he mentions Black Manta, who will be played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II in Aquaman, and Lobo.

I want to fight them all! Black Manta, I love fighting him. I want to fight Deathstroke … or Lobo!” Momoa continued, “That’s the thing I love about my character: Even with Steppenwolf, he just jumps straight in. He will fall right on the stakes, he will get his ass kicked. He is a brawler. That’s the way we want him; just take his shirt off in a bar and start banging. Until he gets that trident down, and becomes one with that trident eventually as a king, he is all fire. He is just piss and vinegar, and can fall straight on his face. That’s what’s great about him. He just soars, and then bang. He’s a pitbull.”

Last but not least, Ezra Miller said that he can’t wait to get to grips with the Rogues, the united group of Flash’s enemies in the comics. He also wants to face-off against Barry Allen’s nemesis Reverse-Flash/Zoom. Finally, Miller even had a suggestion for who could play the telepathic Gorilla Grodd – master monkey actor Andy Serkis.

“I’m excited about a lot of the Rogues, obviously. The longer we can keep this history running, the more Rogues we can explore. I love the exploration of super speeds fighting, so obviously Zoom is coming in. Will Andy Serkis keep playing primates, and simians, and potentially play Gorilla Grodd? That would be rad. Can we get Savitar in the mix? This is what I’m talking about. Or Captain Cold.”

The suggestions from the Justice League cast remind us just how many amazing villains there are in DC’s pantheon that have still yet to be explored on the big screen. With any luck, we’ll get to see a few of these hero-vs.-villain matches when the Legion of Doom unites in the future.
