We saw the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Trinity in action, and now we’re seeing Cyborg, Aquaman, and Flash in Justice League. Much is being said about the film’s plot, but most are in agreement that actors Ray Fisher, Ezra Miller, and Jason Momoa are each a perfect for their roles.
We’re certain that Momoa will return in 2018 in his own solo flick, but we can't say the same for the others. Besides the news that Justice League served as an audience test for the Cyborg solo film, we haven’t heard a thing about it. And Flash has been postponed on more than one occasion.
Nonetheless, the actors took the time to tell SyFy which villains they'd like to go up against.
Aquaman will face both Orm and Black Manta (other villains have been rumored) in his solo flick. But Momoa has other villains in mind:
I want to fight them all! Black Manta, I love fighting him [Manta is confirmed for 2018's Aquaman solo movie]. I want to fight Deathstroke"¦or Lobo! 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 pit bull.
Miller, who’s set to star in Flashpoint, will go toe-to-toe with a speedster villain:
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.
And we've left Fisher for last for one reason (spoilers to follow):
In one of the Justice League credits scenes, Lex Luthor and Deathstroke make plans to form a League of their own. Could it be the Injustice League or the Legion of Doom? According to Fisher, this is the ideal Cyborg villain:
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.
This is definitely interesting. Based on Fisher’s remarks, we’re betting that Legion of Doom talks are happening!
What do you think?
