It's mythology. They can't get the courage together to just make a science fiction super hero movie about the characters rather than their mythologies. What is important are the characters-- Wonder Woman, Flash, Aquaman, and Martian Manhunter. X-men only explored the origin of two characters; opening the film with Magneto as a child and later with the x-rays showing Wolverine has had his body altered. That is all fans should hope for in a JL film. America knows who these characters are; the same as the X-men. No one needs to know the biography of Scott Summers. All we need is Cyclops with a visor and a laser beam. The film can open with Manhunter's arrival on Earth and then later in the first quarter of the film; offer some brief acknowledgement that Flash was involved in an accident caused by lightning which resulted in his super human powers. We don't need any Greek, Egyptian, and Atlantean mythology or magical weapons. What the audience needs to know is that Wonder Woman's identity is Diana Prince-- not Princess Diana.
