It wasn’t that long ago that comic fans across the internet were facepalming over David Goyer’s idiotic comments about Martian Manhunter. This led many people to worry that we would never see the modern Justice League staple on the big screen, and some other sites went on to speculate that the movie would just use the New 52 lineup of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman.
Now it looks like that concern and speculation may be wrong.
The Wrap’s Jeff Sneider just tweeted an image from an agency that lists open casting for Martian Manhunter and Max Lord. He also says they list Darkseid as the villain:
If true, that means we’ll be seeing a very robust team lineup in the movie and putting Darkseid in it would give it a jump on Marvel’s third Avengers film that will use Thanos.
