    He has had some great TV costumes though.

    I actually think the Silver Age helmet works surprisingly well here.

    I feel like they need a much stronger hook than that.

    Abrams isn't a good director but has a stellar track record in TV and film production. I say let him take his time.

    But personally, I'd rather have a singular JLD series than a bunch of spin-offs.
    Yeah but whatís the point of having a good director if we donít see anything. This JLD from JJ abrams has been teased for 5 years and until now, nothing. Iíd say good riddance.

    That was The Crow not Flash. It's in development hell from decades.

    I'm doubting the sequel will match the gross of the original. Aquaman made about $1.1B globally ($335M domestically) and a huge chunk of that was from China ($292M). In the past few years, China has gotten more restrictive with showing US films, and for the ones that have gotten approved, their box office hasn't been as good, partly due to COVID.

    The costume looks even better in motion! Jaime apparently having some standard growing pains of a superhero learning how to use their powers.

    Hah the scarab looks kinda creepy at full size latched onto Jaime’s back. Which actually works since it’s an robotic alien parasite programmed to turn its host into a war machine for the Reach.

    There’s been a few different reasons why the scarab malfunctioned and allowed Jaime to have some control. One of them invoked Peacemaker. Would be pretty cool to see a cameo.

    It's Abrams. We very likely dodged a bullet not getting his Zatanna.

    Seconded.

    Also speaking of Herd, how do you not notice 'chemistry issues' when you're casting future husband and wife? You would think getting the right actor for Mera would be a top priority.

    Most full body superhero costumes use muscle suits of some kind. The material often makes it very difficult to actually show real muscle definition. In some cases the muscle padding may be based on the actorís real physique, but youíre still usually looking at pads.

    Itís from a licensing expo. The point is to show off stuff to potential promotional partners and merchandisers. Pics inevitably leak their way on to social media, but itís essentially a jazzed up trade show. Itís not like a comic convention, where the focus is supposed to be on the public.

    It's far more subtle most of the time. Not like the suits in those images which are fully embracing the silliness.

    Not to mention we'd seen The Flash suit in that shot of Ezra used to highlight all the upcoming DC movies.

    Yikes.

    The first movie was a fun action flick, but a buddy cop with Orm seems... strange.

    I'll still gonna see it in the theatre but strange choice.

    Who thought it was smart to remove the female lead and center the sequel on brotherly love?

    Well since they couldn’t agree on replacing her. However we don’t know if another female is or is not appearing, Dolphin may still be in it.
