The actor portraying the seventh JLA member is currently unknown
Michael Cassidy, who plays Sam, appeared in seven episodes of Smallville (2001), a young Superman series.
The reason for Batman taking on Superman is because in the events of Man of Steel (2013), a Wayne Financial building is destroyed. Bruce Wayne is also scared of what will happen if Superman decides to use his power for evil. People also view Superman as a False God, many believe him to be a hero however, Superman may also be conflicted as to what he wants to do.
Jason Momoa's portrayal of Aquaman is heavily based on his appearance in the comics during the 1990's.
Michael B. Jordan, who lent his voice to Victor Stone/Cyborg in the animated film Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox (2013), was considered for the role of Victor Stone/Cyborg in the live action film. He plays Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in the new Fantastic Four (2015) reboot.
The Joker is rumored to show up at the end of the movie.
Before Ben Affleck was cast as Bruce Wayne/Batman, he was reportedly approached by Warner Bros. to direct a Justice League film adaptation in which he would have also portrayed Batman. He was also previously approached to direct Man of Steel (2013).
This is the first feature film to involve Victor Stone, also known as Cyborg.
Metallo was considered for the role of the villain before Batman and Wonder Woman were brought in.
In an interview with Jimmy Fallon, Ben Affleck said he was warned by Warner Bros. about the possible negative reaction to his casting and was advised to remain off the Internet after the casting announcement. He also said to assuage his concerns the studio showed him negative comments that fans had initially made to previous superhero castings. Affleck said in spite of the studio warnings he still checked out an online message board. The first comment he read was "Affleck as Batman? NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!" After seeing that he immediately went offline.
Lex Luthor's role in this film is based on his appearance in the comic "All-Star Superman", where he is contemptuous of Superman due to his alien nature.
Hans Zimmer composed a separate theme for each superhero in this film (except for Batman), which is set to be featured in The Justice League Part One (2017) and in each superhero's standalone movie as well.
Batman's sidekick Robin is implied to be Jason Todd (the second Robin), but his costume has a red/black color scheme and a bo staff, which belonged to Tim Drake (the third Robin).
There is a rumor/theory that Lex Luthor will resurrect General Zod into Bizzaro or even Doomsday. This ended up turning out to be true as in a new trailer, Lex Luthor experiments on Zod's corpse to fight Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman as Doomsday.
The film was originally scheduled for release in 2015, but was moved to 2016 to "allow the filmmakers time to realize fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story."
