Often mistaken for Batman, it's rumored that the blood of kings runs through my veins.
Just moved to back to Austin TX from Chicago IL and I hate it. >=[
After years of frustrating false starts, DC is finally shaping its cinematic universe. While Marvel continues to add to its menagerie of spandex-clad do-gooders, DC struggled to expand its stable beyond Superman and Batman. Times have changed; instead of slowly building up to Justice League by giving its most prominent members solo outings, DC is planning what amounts to a metahuman mélange. DoJ will be responsible for introducing several Leaguers, including the Queen of Amazons, Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), the Atlantean monarch, Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and the tech-Titan, Cyborg (Ray Fisher). After Supes and Bats finish their grudge match, audiences will be treated to the debut of Shazam, a goofy character who stands in contrast to the League’s many brooding members, and a film featuring him is practically guaranteed to be a hit with younger audiences. A Wundy spinoff should please any fan who’s ever wondered why it’s taken over seven decades for the most famous heroine to headline her own movie. Hopefully, Gadot, who faced criticism for being too short, can summon the right combination of pluck and potency to make the princess a force to be reckoned with. A film with Flash AND Green Lantern has all the makings of a fun romp, but its success will hinge almost entirely on the chemistry and rapid-fire rapport that must exist between its stars. If this duo is anything less than dynamic, it’s doubtful we’ll ever see a quality version of GL. DC finally has a workable game plan that doesn’t involve kidnapping Christopher Nolan and chaining him to a director’s chair. As for the villain of JL, DC might not wanna “rip off” Thanos and bring in Darkseid, so who else can the antagonist be? Doomsday. Crazy powerhouse, though probably better for a Superman solo. Brainiac. Another big-name. While the majority of bad guys wanna control or destroy civilizations, Brainiac wants to shrink ‘em down for his collection. Who doesn’t like a foe on the smarter end of the scale? And there’s Prometheus. Unlike the aforementioned baddies, this guy doesn’t have god-like powers; he’s a self-made villain who’s more of a “JL opponent” rather than a “Superman enemy that can take on the entire League.”
