We’ve had months of heated speculation about who might be starring as the costumed crimefighters in George Miller‘s Justice League of America. But what about the bad guy?

According to IGN Movies, the JLA heavy just might be played by Knocked Up‘s Jay Baruchel:

The face of a supervillain?

The rumor was started by TriggerStreet.com, a site affiliated with Kevin Spacey‘s production company, which reported that Baruchel ankled another film (DreamWorks’ She’s Out of My League) to take the JLA part.

Just which villain Baruchel would play remains a mystery, but as IGN notes, the film’s central bad guy is said to be amoral business magnate Maxwell Lord. What do you say, JLA fans?
