Yeah i'm just not getting it at all. Why is one fine, and the other makes it totally unrealistic?

Besides, like I said earlier, Thor didn't feel ridiculous next to all the other Avengers. Why would WW? Thor being a God from Asgard didn't upset the tone of the world.

Wonder Woman, Flash, Aquaman, hell yeah, bring it on!!! Who could say no to that?
As a fan of superhero films in general, i'd be pretty excited about a JL film

I just think, as a Superman fan specifically, the timing is all wrong. I wish a JL franchise could come after at least 2 Superman films, and with the new Batman franchise set up with one film, and maybe even a WW film in place.

I just wish they weren't rushing into this, and basically stomping all over the future of Superman's solo movie franchise... or at least, that's what it feels like to me.

Yep....they don't obey and actually try to leave the rude of them.

Because no male superheroes wear garrish colors that are considered underwear.

Yeah.....instead of fighting criminals, beating up men and monsters, or saving the world from alien invasion, she should be saving puppies and kittens from a flood, making a snack for Superman while he saves the world, or maybe heroicly comforting a child who scraped their knee.


Yeah....because heaven forbid a female actually think she could stand beside the men and do what they do too.

Misogyny is alive and well at the Hype!

Superman: "I can only tell you what I believe, Diana. humankind has to be allowed to climb to its own destiny. We can't carry them there."
Flash: "But that's what she's saying. What's the point? Why should they need us at all?"
Superman: "To catch them if they fall."
