What's wrong with Darkseid? It's just the way they went about it.
The villain in Avengers 2 is Thanos. Granted, Darkseid was created first and Thanos is a copy, but the general audience doesn't know that. It would look like Justice League is ripping off A2.
I am probably in the minority that I really liked the opening arc of Justice League. Yes, it was poorly paced and really should have been a three or four issue story--but in many ways it recalled the classic Justice League stories of a group of individual heroes coming together to fight a common foe.

I would have liked to have seen more stories set in the past to really get an idea of how the team grew over the next five years. A new Justice League Task Force series could handle this nicely.

For movie purposes though, a Darkseid invasion story could work, but there would need to be a lot more backstory into Apokalypse and Darkseid. In fact, a variation on the Final Crisis story could work quite nicely as a film--maybe with Cyborg developing a wish machine of some sort.
