    I've never heard of The Guffman before. Will he show up in the movie alongside Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, or is he a Marvel character?

    Thoughts?

    For me, I'm not a fan of turning the Amazons into a Kryptonian offshoot race, so does that also mean Aquaman's a Kryptonian offshoot as well and that's how they're going to handle all the Earth bound superhumans?

    It's also good to know that this film will probably not feel as crowded as we thought and Wondy will probably get to showcase herself well.

    You have mis-titled that- those are just a fan's opinions, and not news.

    If the amazonian's origins were explained that they came from an ancient alien race (not Kryptonians, or just explained that Greek G-ds were ancient aliens) would you guys still have a problem with that? Just curious.

    But I understand the apprehensions, and at first i liked the idea (that 20,000 years ago Kryptonians were ancient g-d from mythology, and just left) maybe now, not so much.

    Yes I would be pissed to say the least. Why can't we have magic in this universe.

    I have never heard of them, and won't bother to visit a site that considers Jett's ******** opinions to be news.

    I only trust the hype when it comes to news. The hype gets to the truth eventually.

    That's a pretty shoddy-looking site. And just a quick look at their Twitter shows that they get some flack for just copying other sites' articles without attribution. Not the most credible of places to go for news.

    But it's been around for about 16 years. :)

    I feel like I am looking at the ruins of a great website when I go there :/

    It would be better if the Amazonians came from another alien race. It makes the universe small to imply that Krypton is the only species in the cosmos that ever developed any kind of superpowers.

    Also, the whole "advanced alien race that were perceived as Gods" thing is way too close to Thor. I would prefer a straight magical explanation. Makes Wonder Woman more unique. I don't know why people hate the magic angle so much.

    In our culture of BS, pseudoscience is considered more "realistic" than magic.

    ETA: Would "explaining" wonder woman as a decedent of Kryptonians be equivalent to "explaining" the force as being due to midichlorions?

    Goddamn Star Trek. This is technobabble's fault somehow. Have Leonard Nimoy killed.

    But it doesn't imply that about the cosmos, only the breadth of meta's that are Amazons....
    When the flash and hawkman and possible GL are proven to be krptonians, you'd make ground on this cosmos idea.

    I care little on the matter tbh, either way has it's objectives strengths and opportunities. Reminds me of what goyer did to vampires in blade and bane in tdk trilogy. Strengths and weaknesses.

    that being said, rumors will be rumors.

    That would still be terrible, but at least she's not a Superman related character that way.

    And aside form the disservice done to Wonder Woman, this would indicate that WB is still nervous about expanding their DC properties. Many DC characters are magic based. A lot of them, in my opinion, are the best ones they have. It would be foolish of them to shy away from magic.

    Are we still talking about superheromoviesnews.com? Because that's what I was talking about. Today's the first I've ever heard of that site, and obviously for good reason.

    BoF I've seen before. But I've never really given it any consideration. I don't care for rumours or gossip regarding a film's plot. There's only two possible outcomes there. Either you get fed crap that ends up way off, or you spoil the film for yourself. No good comes from that.

    ever since reading that mos sequel comic, i think the ancient alien angle would be a possibility. it would make kara like 15, 000 years old.


    I'm not so sure about everything else, but i suppose the people who though this film would be a cluster**** can rest easy.

    They can't get rid of her mythology and give Wonder Woman her own movie.

    Also, Jett's ideas about the Amazons being descended from Kryptonian explorers doesn't make sense anyway. The only Kryptonian on earth before Clark was Kara. She left the her ship abandoned so she couldn't have used it to breed a female race. And if she had kids the old fashioned way, would she and her descendants really be enough for a whole race of only women?

    I have to admit I don't hate this idea as much as some. So I probably wouldn't throw a fit if it was true.

    But...I don't believe it yet since I have no faith in the source of this info.
