Warner Bros. is working rigorously to put together the film adaptation of "Justice League" and the most recent buzz is about who will play the film's main villian. 

The highly anticipated flick is expected to bring together some of DC Comics' finest on the big screen, including Superman, Batman, Flash and Wonder Woman. However, there has been extensive chatter over which character out of DC's arsenal would be on board to play the villain in the movie.

Latino-Review reported that the respective bad guy will indeed be Darkseid. While he isn't as well known as some other mainstream antagonists such as the Joker or Lex Luthor, he's definitely a household name to fans of the DC Comics world.

Darkseid was originally brought into fruition in the "Fourth World Saga" by Jack Kirby, which is when the artist made the switch from working for Marvel to DC.  The villain is a New God and the ruler of the planet Apokolips. 

Warner Bros. is apparently aiming to have the "Justice League" out to theaters in the summer of 2015, which just so happens to be the same year that the Joss Whedon-directed "Avengers" sequel is slated to arrive. 

Unlike its rival Marvel Studios, which has five flicks to utilize their characters for the Avengers, Warner Bros. won't have such a luxury. It was also said that the Superman from the "Man of Steel" movie will be be one of the characters in the "Justice League" film, according to the New York Post.  

Although the film still doesn't have a director attached to it as of yet, writer Will Beall of "Gangster Squad" is said to be working feverishly in order to finish the script.

Other recent rumors regarding the movie previously had Joseph Gordon-Levitt (John Blake) playing alongside Batman in the "Justice League," but that was quickly shot down by the actor's reps, according to Entertainment Weekly.
