The wait is nearly over! For more than a decade, DC Comics fans have been looking forward to a live action Justice League movie hitting theaters, and while George Miller's Justice League: Mortal never became a reality, we're only a month away from seeing the superhero team form in the DC films universe. With four trailers having been released (including the preview footage from 2016's San Diego Comic-Con), as well as numerous images and reports being published, much of what to expect from the Justice League movie has already been revealed.
However, as we count down the remaining weeks to Justice League's theatrical debut (which you can now pre-order tickets for), there are still a few questions that are bouncing around in our heads that we're eager to have answered. Starting off, let's take a look at a certain Kryptonian and his big return.
How Will Superman Be Resurrected?
Superman sacrificed himself to defeat Doomsday in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but Warner Bros and DC have made no effort to hide that the Man of Steel will be brought back to life during Justice League, eventually becoming the sixth member of the team. As for how he will be resurrected, that remains a mystery. Aside from the dirt levitating above Clark Kent's coffin at the end of Batman v Superman, no clues have been provided yet on the means of his return. Maybe it will be the result of Apokoliptan technology. Maybe there's something in Kal-El's Kryptonian DNA that slowly revives his body when in the presence of a yellow sun. It's anyone's guess at this point. As for what Superman will be like when he's back among the living, we'll touch on that later.
How Does Darkseid Fit Into The Story?
Rather than follow in the footsteps of Geoff Johns' "Origin" Justice League arc (i.e. the story that kicked off the team in the New 52) and have Darkseid leading the invasion of Earth, the Justice League movie decided to send Steppenwolf, Darkseid's uncle, to our world with the Parademon army. But then how does Darkseid fit into the picture? It was reported last year that the Apokoliptan conqueror will appear in the flashback battle sequence, and a later rumor claimed we would see him and feel his presence, but he wouldn't speak. However, it's possible the Justice League reshoots may altered Darkseid's involvement, and one report even claimed that the setup for Darkseid to be Justice League 2's main antagonist has been removed. So for now, we're still in the dark of how Darkseid will directly play into Justice League, and that's if he even appears.
