    Is it just me or does the Corben of those scans look like Kevin Bacon?

    That was just speculation on the part of Jett at Batman on Film. Most of what he said was just speculation, but it got picked up by other outlets as if he was passing along inside information.

    That is true about Jett speculating, but remember the empty stasis chamber in the Kryptonian ship? Wasn't there a comic spin-off which had Supergirl as the former occupant of it (or maybe it was her ancestors?)?

    Could it be that the film version will instead reveal that the person who left that chamber instead was the founder of Amazonian society?

    Good thing that movies are not beholden to tie-in comics. Looking at YOU Star Trek 09 and ID.

    If they do choose to make WW a descendant of I'd be ok with it. The warrior culture of the Amazon's and the all women society can remain untocuhed. All that would change would be where their powers come from. Classic WW and the amazon's receiving their powers through Divine Empowerment (rom Athena, Hestia, Demeter, Artemis, and Aphrodite. New52 WW be is the natural born daughter of Zeus and Hippolyta. Making her a demigod like Perseus, Achilles, and Hercules. A new adaptation of WW being kryptonian descendant isn't the worst thing in the world.

    ^I agree. Not saying that this is what they'll do but it could work.

    WW a Kryptonian descendant? Dwayne Johnson as GL? Are there any positive rumors?

    I know that many people didn't love Ryan Reynolds' Green Lantern. But why recast that role? Hal Jordan is still the preeminent Green Lantern. If the studio has social concerns about the lack of racial diversity in the Justice League then they should just say so.

    ^I suspect that the DJ-GL rumours are false, if that helps?! My bet is he's in a standalone film of his own.

    Hulk has been recast twice now in recent years. No actor is important enough not to get recast, especially after a flop movie.

    Who says they even want to go with the Green Lantern Mythos as set up in that film? Easier to start from scratch.

    It's not just you.

    That would be an interesting twist, but I'd still prefer something a little closer to the comics. Also, who knows when that stasis chamber opened. It might have only opened after Clark activated the ship.

    From Badass Digest:

    Some sites are speculating that Ben Affleck will direct Justice League since Snyder will likely be too busy with post-production to move on to another film so quickly. It's all just rumor for now. If there's truth to it we should know pretty soon.

    What's that scent? Smells like desperation.

    Momoa strikes me as a better fit for Namor than Aquaman.

    I've read on another site that Josh Holloway is rumored to play Aquaman as well.

    What hasn't smelled of desperation in this whole thing?

    Yeah maybe it is desperation, but at least we're finally getting to see all these other DC characters on the big screen at long last.

    And WB is starting so far behind that it's probably for the best that they jump straight ahead to the Justice League movie. That's the one people really want to see, after all.
