High Quality Justice League Post-Credits Scene Confirms Sequel’s Villains


Day by day, we’re beginning to form a better understanding of Justice League‘s post-credits scenes – and yes, that’s scenes plural – no thanks to the slew of spoilers leaking onto the interwebs.

For those who aren’t all that fussed by spoiler-sensitive material, Christmas has come early, as the past 24 hours have uncovered countless revelations about Justice League, Joss Whedon’s contribution, and the definitive answer regarding Green Lantern’s alleged involvement – or lack thereof.

But this newly-unveiled bootleg recording takes the biscuit. First posted to Reddit (watch here), it’s essentially the full, high-res version of yesterday’s leak, in which Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor broached the idea of a supervillain team-up with Slade Wilson, the hardened mercenary otherwise known as Deathstroke. Sporting an eye patch and a rather badass, gravely voice, Joe Manganiello certainly looks the part as Batman’s nemesis, and this super-secret meeting will surely have massive ramifications leading into the sequel, as it all but confirms the formation of the Injustice League.

While this is obviously hugely exciting, some fans have already expressed concerns as the last time Warner Bros. tried its hand at a villainous group, we were left with the wholly disappointing Suicide Squad, but there’s plenty of reason to be hopeful for the Justice League sequel. Besides, the core cast have already name-dropped the heroes and villains they’d like to see in a potential follow-up, so don’t be fooled into thinking that Warner is finished with its superhero ensemble.

Justice League opens on November 17th, and it would appear that the studio has already drawn up plans for the inevitable sequel. What’s more, drafting Joe Manganiello’s Slade Wilson into the equation certainly leaves the door open for the Deathstroke spinoff movie, which is coming by way of The Raid director Gareth Evans. Stay tuned for more on that one.
