Warning: Justice League spoilers ahead! Read on at your own risk!

Zack Snyder's Justice League does a hell of a lot for the future of the DC Extended Universe, and nothing seems quite as important as the fact that it sets up a world for all of these heroes to inhabit. We have quite a few solo movies coming over the next few years, but it's never too early to start thinking about the next time these heroes will stand side-by-side in Justice League 2. With that potential sequel already at the forefront of fans' minds, let's dive in and talk about everything Justice League 2 would need to do in order to match (and even surpass) the quality of the original.

Steppenwolf Justice League

Improve The Villain

There's really no getting around it now that Justice League has debuted in theaters. Steppenwolf is a lousy villain. This isn't necessarily the fault of Game of Thrones actor Ciaran Hinds, but the character is simply too underdeveloped, too dull, and too poorly-conceived on a visual level to ever stand alongside iconic performances like Gene Hackman's Lex Luthor, Heath Ledger's Joker, or even Michael Shannon's Zod from Man of Steel. Looking ahead, DC will need to refocus and pit the League against a villain whose motives, personality, and methodology seem just as exciting as the heroes themselves.

In the DC world, that's not a hard feat to pull off. Nearly every member of the Justice League roster has an insanely dense rogues gallery (with the possible exception of Cyborg, who doesn't have too many solo villains), and anyone from The Joker to Vandal Savage to Brainiac could stand out as a perfect enemy in the sequel. It won't be hard to improve on Steppenwolf's shortcomings, but it needs to happen.
