With it recently become known that Zack Snyder is directing the Justice League movie and that WB is making other DC comic book movies, it remains to be seen what members of the League will make up the team.
We know that Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and by the looks of it Cyborg will be a part of the Justice League, but what about the remaining members?
IGN asked the showrunner of Arrow and the co-writer of the Green Lantern movie, Marc Guggenheim, if Green Lantern should be a part of the team.
Of course, Guggenheim says he would love if Green Lantern was on the squad.
"I would love it," Guggenheim told IGN. "At the end of the day, I just want to see a great Justice League movie. I think they’re putting a lot of really cool pieces into play with the first two Superman movies and I’m basically a sucker for a great comic book movie. As long as they’re doing something awesome, I’ll be the first one in line."
There have been various rumors and speculation that Green Lantern John Stewart could be on the team as Hal Jordan was featured in the Green Lantern movie played by Ryan Reynolds, which flopped at the box office. It's also possible that Snyder could go for an all-new Green Lantern and Hal Jordan, which seems most likely.
There have also been rumors about The Flash, Aquaman and Martian Manhunter.
We might even get the cast for the Justice League sooner rather than later as it's said Zack Snyder is filming Justice League directly after Batman Vs. Superman; so look for more news on that most likely at this Summer's Comic-Con.
The untitled "Batman Vs Superman" has a newly announced May 6, 2016 release starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg with Callan Mulvey, Holly Hunter and Tao Okamoto in new character roles for the film.
