How will Warner Bros. handle Superman, Batman and the other heroes?
Will WB try and outwit Marvel by making Darkseid the villain before Thanos can wage war in 'Avengers 2'?
While some believe Marvel including Thanos as the behind-the-scenes mastermind behind the alien invasion in "The Avengers" was a strategic move to keep DC from using the iconic Jack Kirby creation Darkseid as the villain in "Justice League," WB still has a chance to beat Marvel to the punch. Currently, Marvel and Disney Studios are booked with "Avengers"-related solo movies through April 2014. The "Avengers" sequel could appear in June or July, 2014. That still gives Warner the summer of 2013 or Christmas 2013 to beat them to the punch with a "Justice League" film featuring Darkseid as the team's first adversary. If DC goes in that direction, would Marvel change the villain for "Avengers 2"?
