The rock needs to start being more picky with roles imo. Sometimes he really hits, sometimes not so much. I'll be watching this hercules very closely in that regard(I think he needs to avoid the sandal movies).

When it comes to DC, I think GL would be more solid than...something like shazam. I would call that a big risk. A big classic WB/DC like risk.

Nah, it goes:

Jay, Alan
Barry, Hal
Wally, Kyle
Bart, John (as per the DCAU)

That's the best way to go about it.

I voted Hal because I have a feeling when a Earth GL shows up it's going too be Hal.

Oh I see. I was refereing Wally-J.Stewart as in the JLAU

But I'd go with Hal and Barry, or Wally and Kyle/John.

Bart is too young for the JL

I loved John and Wally's relationship in JL/U.

Wally in the DCAU has Bart's character. That's who he is most similar to of all the Flashes.

Plus we already have an African-American on the cast with Cyborg. No reason to include Stewart for diversity. Diversity is Stewart's best asset. The JS character is quite bland.
what you basically just said was "They already have a black guy on the team, there's no need for more than one"

Whatever dude.

Yeah that was cringeworthy. I dislike tokenism and it would be an excellent move to also include Stewart on the team (in addition to Cyborg). It would fly in the face of expectations of "we have our one woman and one black guy."

Of course Stewart stands as a character on his own regardless of race, but the diversity he brings to the team is an important addition as well. I feel the same way about including Hawkgirl on the team, but that's a different convo.

Hal Jordan or John Stewart. If it's Hal Jordan, I want him to be played by Bradley Cooper. I don't know who I'd cast for John Stewart. I don't think the Rock will be playing him.

I hate the idea of changing tradition just to add diversity. Forcing diversity on people to satisfy parts of the audience that are calling for diversity doesn't help anything in my opinion. Personally I can't stand it. The characters are who they are, leave it that way. Besides, people of all nationalities, genders and races enjoy the characters exactly the way they are already, if they didn't then they would never make the movie to begin with.

I also believe calling Wonder Woman a token female character is selling the character short. She is not a token female superhero, she is the definitive female superhero. I feel the same way to a lesser extent about Martian Manhunter and Cyborg, they are just part of the team (one being an original founding member and one being a next-gen founding member). Both will probably see time in the Justice League before this run is over.

I don't see why people can't just enjoy the characters/members the way they always have been, instead of trying to force diversity into the matter just for the sake of adding diversity.

Do you see how regressive this sentiment is? You sound like any old man railing against the modern world.

If comics and their associated movies had to be frozen at the point of their origins, they would be forever stuck in a crusty pre civil rights era: all white, all straight, with Wonder Woman occasionally stepping into a secretarial role because she's a girl. The world just isn't like that anymore, and a movie that represented it that way would effectively be a period piece.

Because in this day and age we need to check boxes to make ourselves feel better for being "progressive".Source material be damned.

If by "source material" you mean "comics", then the source material has moved on considerably since the 1940-60s.

Or do you have a "cut off" point when non-white characters started to be introduced?

Faith in humanity restored.

Comics and movies have always changed with the times and always will. The way some people talk about how "source material" should absolutely trump any kind of social awareness doesn't sit well with me.

People, there can be both. It's possible to have a diverse cast from the comics that are all well-written characters.

Haven't we already got arguably three non-white characters in the League? Being Cyborg, Wonder Woman and Aquaman. Or are Gal Gadot and Jason Momoa not dark enough to be considered "not white" and therefore faithful to the source material?

I want Hal Jordan because I find John Stewart mindnumbingly dull. I also prefer the Hal and Barry dynamic to any other Lantern/Flash combo.

I think it all goes down to the kind of story they want to tell, and sometimes the most current version of the character is best attempt to advertise the comics of the time

Yes, but the discussion had broadened beyond John Stewart. His ethnicity alone is not a reason to use him, but nor is it a reason not to use him. I find the idea that there is a proportional limit on the use of non white actors to be rather unattractive.

Same. I just find it hilarious that having John would be "forcing diversity" but having a jew and native Hawaiian/American are considered as "white".

I see John Stewart as the Plan B when Hal's outing fails, so I see John being used. People still think of him as THE Green Lantern thanks to JL/U.
