They’re finally here, but can they live up to the hype? Welcome to and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 things we want to see in the Justice League movie.

For this list, we’re counting down the moments and characters we hope to see make their way into this much anticipated upcoming superhero blockbuster.

#10: Atlantis

We’ve only seen tidbits of Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, but he’s fast becoming one of the film’s biggest draws. We’re hoping that not only do we see the King of Atlantis summon all manner of undersea creatures during his team-up with the League, but that we also get a glimpse of his home. This seems like a given since the trailer gave us a look at what appears to be a rendition of Aquaman’s wife Mera swimming through a palace. We don’t need a grand tour, just enough to get us excited for his eventual solo flick.

#9: Amanda Waller

Look, whichever way you stretch it, Suicide Squad amounted to nothing more than a squandered opportunity. That being said, Viola Davis gave such a strong and believable performance as Amanda Waller that she almost made the whole fiasco worthwhile. Do we want her to come back? Hell yes. Give her a small but significant role to make the DC Cinematic Universe feel more cohesive. Whether she’s conspiring with the government against the Justice League, dealing with the aftermath of the Enchantress, or even getting into an epic staring contest with Batman, the Wall deserves her due.

#8: Batman’s Attitude Adjustment

We love Ben Affleck as Batman; we just wish the script for Dawn of Justice did as well. Turning him into something of a grizzled killer didn’t exactly sit well with many fans. However, with so many new personalities on the scene, the Justice League movie seems like the perfect chance for his character to have a major turning point. By all means, keep the brooding bad-assery, but act like the World’s greatest Detective we know and love.

#7: The Fate of Robin

Comic fans are all aware of how the second Robin, Jason Todd, met his bloody end at the hands of the Joker, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to see it! Having Batman reflect on what he considers his greatest failure would do so much for his character, not to mention bring some real emotion to the fold. Though there’s no guarantee that the Robin whose suit we see in BvS belonged to Jason Todd – what happened to Dick Grayson? Is there a Nightwing roaming around the periphery of the DCEU? The mannequin is also holding a staff – the weapon of choice of the third Robin, Tim Drake. Just give us some answers!

#6: Commissioner Gordon

Given how iconic Jim Gordon is, we’re very eager to see the star of Whiplash give his take on the veteran officer. We only have one request; please don’t let it all amount to a cameo. Like Ben Affleck and Jeremy Irons, JK Simmons has the potential to hand in a character defining performance, just as long as the film gives him enough screen-time. There have been many great interpretations of the character, so it will be interesting to see what Simmons brings to the fold, and what his chemistry with Batfleck will be like, setting up the upcoming stand-alone Batman film.

#5: The Watchtower

While we have nothing against the Hall of Justice, we think it’s way more likely that if the League is going to set up a base of operations, then a giant space station is the way to go. The Watchtower has been shown through the history of the JLA to the point where it’s as synonymous with the League as the heroes themselves. We have no idea how Bruce Wayne is going to be able to afford it or how it will fit into the narrative, but here’s hoping we get some kind of hint suggesting that the League will get their interstellar condo before the credits roll.

#4: The Flash’s Superspeed

From what we’ve seen so far, Ezra Miller’s take on the Scarlet Speedster will be bringing plenty of comedy and charm with him. We’re all for the world’s fastest hero being a little socially awkward and busting out lame jokes on occasion, as long as there’s a trade-off where they give Barry Allen a chance to shine. We’ve seen The Flash work on the small screen, so there’s no reason it shouldn’t work here. We’ve got a taste of how his super-speed works, but hopefully the film will manage to incorporate it a way we haven’t seen before. Besides, Quicksilver got his, so at least give Flash his moment on the big screen.

#3: Superman’s Return

Poor old Supes has certainly gotten the short end of the stick as of late. While Dawn of Justice may have robbed him of his Boy Scout attitude and even killed him off, his imminent return still shouldn’t be scoffed at. Hopefully Warner Bros has learned from their mistakes and will use the Man of Steel’s resurrection to take his character in a new direction. With his return, Superman has the chance to reclaim his crown as one of the greatest heroes of all time, not only by battling the forces threatening the Earth, but also by finally standing as the symbol that his fellow caped comrades can rally behind.

#2: Green Lantern

If there’s one hero that’s in dire need of a redo, it’s good old GL. While his various incarnations have been treated with respect on the page and in animation, on the silver screen Green Lantern has a pretty sorry back catalogue. His 2011 outing is regarded as one of the worst superhero flicks of the modern era, meaning that this new iteration will have to come out swinging. A good way to start would be by clueing us in to which character will be taking up the Power Ring and seeing just how the Corps is going to fit into this universe.

#1: Darkseid

What foe could possibly stand up to the combined might of Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and the rest? The Lord of Apokolips, of course! A being of ungodly strength and authority, Darkseid is one of the greatest and most powerful villains in the DC universe, which has us all praying that “Justice League” will introduce him into the DCEU, especially since Steppenwolf is his uncle and a member of his elite group of warriors. His lack of empathy, rivalry with Superman, obsession with the Anti-Life Equation, and frequent use of his Omega Beams need to be brought alive on the big screen. But let’s make sure this guy doesn’t get the Doomsday treatment.
