[WARNING: Possible Batman v Superman and Justice League spoilers]

LatinoReview‘s El Mayimbe claims to have knowledge of Justice League’s upcoming big screen villain.

Ever since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was announced, everyone from hardcore fans to those with a passing fancy have been frothing at the mouth waiting for the next piece of information regarding DC’s upcoming, and yet mysterious, shared universe.

So far, all information regarding the plot details of BvS and beyond has come from official sources, often contradicting fan-favourite rumors. Keeping that in mind, it is wise to take one or two grains of salt with today’s rumor.

Aforementioned rumor comes to us via LatinoReview‘s El Mayimbe, who claimed on SchmoesKnow‘s Meet The Press Podcast that certain sources have revealed to him DC’s choice ‘big bad’ for their Justice League debut.

“I’m told the set up is in Batman V Superman. The rumor is that Brainiac is going to be the bad guy in Justice League. And the set up of it is cool: remember how the Kryptonian beacon that Clark set off brought Zod to Earth? Brainiac heard it as well. That’s what I’m hearing… Basically Brainiac is going to be set up somehow at the end of Batman V Superman, from what I’m hearing, and then it goes into Justice League.”

What do you think of this rumor? Is it owed any credence? What do you think about Brainiac as the first to go up against the big screen Justice League? Sound off in the comments!
