Is Darkseid The “Justice League” Villain?

While “Marvel’s The Avengers” look to be battling Thanos in their sequel, could the “Justice League” film feature a DC villain of a similar persuasion?

Latino Review reports that Darkseid, the cruel and manipulative god ruler of the war planet Apokolips, will serve as the antagonist for the upcoming ‘League’ film.

Shooting on the project is reportedly aiming to get underway next year for a Summer 2015 release.
