The Justice League movie was originally set to feature two new characters from DC Comics, but that was before writer/director Zack Snyder took a break from his Justice League movies and took a chance on two other characters.
Now, the team of heroes will feature two more characters, but the first of them will be a new superhero.
Warner Bros. has announced that Justice League Sequel #2 will feature the character of Wonder Woman, a member of the Justice League who was a member in the DCU before the first movie.
“Wonder Woman has a new mission and a new history, and she’s going to have to take on some of the most dangerous enemies on the planet if she wants to keep her promise,” executive producer Deborah Snyder told Entertainment Weekly.
“The future of Wonder Queen is a big part of her story.”
She also noted that the Justice team will be “the most badass group of people in the movie.”
In Justice League #2, Wonder Woman will be joined by several other new DC characters, including Aquaman, Cyborg, Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman’s daughter Robin, Martian Manhunter, and the new Teen Titans, as well as two villains from the Justice league movie: The Black Knight and the Cyborg Serpent.
“There are so many heroes and villains, and they all have new stories, new ways of dealing with problems, new motivations and new stories,” Snyder said.
“I wanted to really build on the core DC Universe.
The original movie is the beginning of this new movie, and we wanted to tell these stories in this way that felt like we were telling them in the comics.”
The team of DC superheroes will be back in the Justice world in Justice League 2 #2 in September, 2019, with more characters and events to be revealed in the months ahead.
“We’re going to see more of these big battles that we’ve been seeing,” Snyder told EW.
“This is not a movie that’s just for fans.
We want people to come see it, and it’s going a different direction than the first one.
There are some really exciting new characters and stories that will come out of this.”
Justice League was released on May 17, 2020, and was based on the character design of artist Jim Lee, who worked on the first film.
Snyder previously announced that the film will feature an updated version of Batman, Wonder Girl, Aquamarine, Green Arrow, Superman, and Cyborg.
Justice League also stars Ezra Miller, Amy Adams, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, Amber Heard, Ezra Miller Jr., and Laura Harrier.
Justice is currently in theaters and on Blu-ray.
