Henry Cavill will reprise his role as Superman; Ben Affleck, who plays Batman in Dawn of Justice will continue to play the Dark Knight; Fast and Furious alum Gal Gadot will play Wonder Woman; Conan’s Jason Momoa, who will make an appearance in Dawn of Justice as Aquaman will also join the Justice league cast and have his own movie in 2018. Ray Fisher was cast as Cyborg.
The Real Stan Lee has posted that also among the confirmed cast members are Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishbourne as Perry White.
Among those rumored to join the potential blockbuster movie are Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam, Jenna Malone as Robin, Fringe’s Lance Reddick as the Martian Manhunter and Tao Okamoto as Mercy Graves. Jared Leto, who is now shooting for the role of Joker in Suicide Squad, is also rumored to play the part in the Justice League movie.
Movie Pilot also posted that Harry Lennix may be cast as General Swanwick while Christina Wren who played Major Carrie Farris in Man of Steel and Dawn of Justice may finally get her promotion to captain in the next movie.
There are several rumors surrounding the casting of Green Lantern as it is unsure which version the movie will incorporate into the plot.
There are reports that Tyrese Gibson may be tapped to play the John Stewart version of superhero but if the film chooses to go the Hal Jordan route, there is a big chance that Dan Amboyer, best known for his portrayal of Prince William in William and Catherine: A Royal Romance, could land the part. Chris Pine was also being pegged for the role.
Meanwhile, a VC Post article reported that are also rumors that the role will be filled by a woman. If the film opts for the Jessica Cruz version of Green Lantern, Michelle Rodriguez was reportedly being wooed for the part. The Fast and Furious star was quick to dispel the rumors.
