Sorry to ruin your weekend folks, but we've just learned that DC is looking to cast Martian Manhunter in their upcoming Justice League movie (which will take place after Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice). Ain't It Cool News used their time machine to travel to the future from 1994 where their website is located and look at the casting calls from the film, and according to those, the Martian Manhunter is an (as yet uncast) role. Now, this isn't an official announcement and we can't personally verify AICN's source, due to us not having a Compuserve account, so we'll have to put this in the rumor column for now. But still, things are looking good for fans of J'onn J'onzz, right?
Unfortunately, according to David Goyer, the man behind all DC's movie plans, anyone who knows who J'onn J'onzz is must be a virgin. Let's take a trip back in the WABAC Machine ourselves to a time when AICN was the premiere website in the world and Kurt Cobain was still alive and... er, actually, it was just last month, during Goyer's appearance on the ScriptNotes podcast:
Moving on from green female characters they'd like to fuck to male green characters, Mazin and Goyer started discussing Martian Manhunter. When asked how he would adapt Jonn Jonn'z for the big screen, Goyer responded "How many people in the audience have heard of Martian Manhunter?” When the audience responded with cheers and raised their hands, he then asked "How many people that raised their hands have ever been laid?”
So on the one hand, you can look forward to a fan-favorite character gracing the big screen. On the other, you've never had sex and we may have to sacrifice you to a volcano. Some days, you gotta take the good with the bad.
