DC Extended Universe fans have had a very long year. First, Wonder Woman was plagued with all sort of negative rumors and tension right up until it was released. Then Zack Snyder stepped down as Justice League director, and Joss Whedon took over long enough to direct the reshoots, which are rumored to have been quite extensive.
But our wait is almost over! When Justice League comes out in just over two weeks, we’ll know whether any of the following rumors are true! Be warned that spoilers may be lurking!
The Flash Rumor:
Reddit user Gemasterson isolated the audio of a recent Justice League trailer, and discovered an intriguing sequence in which Cyborg is screaming at Flash as if he (Flash) were in grave danger. According to the rumor, Flash is running extremely fast and is gradually fading into the Speed Force. Could this be the moment when Barry Allen learns he can time-travel? Could this lead into the announced Flashpoint?
The Green Lantern Rumor:
During the Justice League promotional tour in China, Warner Bros. surprised fans with a 30-minute preview. One fan tweeted that we can expect to see a Green Lantern in Justice League. But will that Green Lantern show up in one of the flashback sequences as the Corps aids Earth in its fight against Darkseid's first invasion? The tweet didn’t say, but here it is!

The Deathstroke Rumor:
Most recently, we heard that Warner Bros. has a Deathstroke film in the works. Shortly after it was announced, Joe Manganiello – who will play the supervillain – posted a pic of the character’s mask on his Instagram account. A Twitter user spotted a discrepancy between the mask Deathstroke wore when he was revealed and the one Manganiello posted:
Deathstroke’s mask that Manganiello posted online is way more damaged than the one in Affleck’s video.

The Zeus Rumor:
In the latest Justice League trailer, we saw more of the ancient battle between the Earth alliance and Darkseid's army. In one very brief shot, a male character seems to be throwing a lightning bolt. Is that Zeus? Or is it one of his other children, such as Hercules?
