That's because he wasn't.
Good for him. I couldn't stand the character.
So did you find him "hard to swallow" or "hard to take", because it sounds like the latter.
Let me guess, "both", huh huh
More hard to swallow. Reading it and I just shake my head and find it unbelievable. And that's saying something in a comic.
But, since you can read my mind I'll let you fill in the gaps.
I just get tired of snarky one word replies, I apologize if I was out of bounds there.
Unfortunately, I've run across a lot of self-serving people and find such a character to not be that hard to imagine existing. In fact, I've probably built too many walls around myself trying to not be taken advantage of and used.
Self serving is one thing and I have encountered a few truly narcissistic people. It's the tendency in the narrative to be like "Oh, never mind, I'm actually doing this now!"
And I apologize if my one word responses are annoying. I prefer that because, well, I was taught that a full on explanation of personal preference is sometimes is just excuse making.
No, both the Reeves and Ryan versions of the character had their names pronounced as "-teen". This goes for the animated versions, as well. Jenna Coleman's version from The Sandman, Joanna Constantine, is the first and so far only adapted version to have their name pronounced "-tine", as Neil Gaiman insisted on this pronounciation. WB would have probably prefered the pronounciation be consistent, despite the creator's opinion.
I could buy that for the various Matt Ryan versions, which came out fairly close together. But the Reeves movie was kind of obscure and unpopular before its recent critical reassessment, I think. So I doubt they would've cared much about consistency with it.
Steppenwolf removal from the trailer and an interesting post from BossLogic (producing concept art for the film) @ 4:47. Some might see that as a trolling tweet.
In the next shot you hear glass shattering.
Well, the audio:
"There’s no one on this planet that can stop me"
...is intriguing. Some might read that as a moment after Black Adam has defeated the JSA, and is ready to plant the flag as victor until...what?
That, or the line comes earlier in the film, and he has to change his tune when the JSA show up, where one could assume Dr. Fate will the one to stop him--or at least beat him to a standstill.
Why Dr. Fate? They all could conceivably do it, especially while working together. But it's his movie, so they won't. I bet Sarah Shahi will appeal to his humanity by reminding him of the love he shared with his family before they died. He'll show mercy but not without defining how far he'll go if he's crossed again.
Speculation is fun, this could go in an infinite number of ways!
The fantasy on Twitter is that Henry Cavill shows up and says "I am not from this planet"... but it doesn't make sense if the line is "on this planet". Superman is on this planet.
I was making a Stone Cold Steve Austin joke.
Adam has been portrayed as being able to take on all the hero's of the DC universe. He can be incredibly powerful depending on the story. The way to stop him is often through negotiation or appeal to his humanity.
From the trailers, Black Adam does not seem to be too bothered by Hawkman, and while there are other JSA members, if the Dr. Fate of the film is similar to the one in stronger comic stories, he would be the last resort to handle the worst of the worst.
I wonder what sort of negotiation he would accept to offset his desire for revenge / power?
"There's something you should know."
"AND WHAT WOULD THAT BE?!"
"I'm not from Nottingham"

The article makes the point about how WBD stock has dropped in HALF since the Batgirl announcement, and has been down now for months, and just going down further.
Now, there might be fines, but would it theoretically be possible for WBD to still release Batgirl, either as a streaming feature if not theatrical release. That COULD help the stock price, even though they killed any revenue potential in the theaters.
If Comcast buys them next year, anything is possible after that.
