Justice League Theory: Martian Manhunter Saw Batman’s Knightmare Vision
It’s possible that in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Harry Lennix’s Martian Manhunter saw the same Knightmare future that Ben Affleck’s Batman witnessed. “Knightmare” is the name given to the post-apocalyptic storyline teased at the end of the Snyder Cut, which was first set up in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
What Bruce Wayne saw was a glimpse of what the DCEU was originally going to do with Justice League 2 and Justice League 3, and it tied directly to overarching concerns about what Superman (Henry Cavill) could become as well as Darkseid’s master plan in the Snyder Cut. It was revealed in the movie that Darkseid was after a mathematical formula called the Anti-Life Equation. Thanks to Steppenwolf, he almost acquired it, but his efforts were thwarted by the combined forces of the Justice League. Steppenwolf’s death prevented Darkseid from getting what he wanted, but a dream experienced by Batman made it abundantly clear that they were far from through with the DC Comics villain. Darkseid’s minions were shown to have successfully invaded the Earth in the future, and Superman himself had apparently been turned evil by the Anti-Life Equation. [click for more]
