    Welp, I guess there was more and they were forgettable to me.

    Looking at the person I quoted below, not one of them would ever get their own movie or show that could help their xomic counterpart ...well I guess Cyborg still could since there is another actor running around playing the character.

    Killer Croc... who looks like a crocodile is not a character I would even attempt to count tbh.

    But you made points for the rest.

    I think I give it to the originals, just because they have Idris Elba, Viola Davis, Yahya Abdul Mateen and Meagan Good, though the race swaps do have Will Smith, Jurnee Smollet Bell and now Aldis Hodge! Lot’s of talented Black actors in the DCEU so I see that as a good thing!

    Curious to see who they cast as John Stewart and Static for their upcoming rumored appearances...Also pretty sure Barbara Gordon will be Black in the Batverse seeing as Gordon is Black, so curious who they’ll cast as her

    we got our first look at Javicia Leslie as Batwoman;


    I don't she looks bad in the cowl, I'm liking what I'm seeing so far, but I am disappointed with the hair a little. Maybe it was just me but I had it in my head what they were gonna keep her fro from the pictures when she was first announced. I guess it's fine but that would've been dope, regardless, the lightning could be better but I like her in the cowl so far.

    She's supposed to get her own unique batsuit at some point, the one in that picture is only temporary. I'm tired of seeing people roasting this picture on Twitter, though. I saw someone criticize Javicia for not looking "happy" in this picture, but I bet that critic kept his mouth shut when Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale didn't look "happy" every time they posed for a promotional Batman photo.

    She looks horrendously bad in that pic/costume/wig.
    Why they chose to let this see the light of day is a mystery.
    The new costume needs to take her jawline into account. It’s something Bale’s design didn’t do, and he looked like he had the mumps.

    I just assume anyone whining about a character not smiling enough is being immature.

    Default So it's officially been announced, Aldis Hodge is our big screen Hawkman!





    So it's officially been announced, Aldis Hodge is our big screen Hawkman! I would think they would be touching on the Khufu origin before Black Adam is imprisoned and Hawkman in the present timeline. Hawkman is going to be leading the the JSA, so I think if he really breaks out in this movie we could see a Hawkman movie down the road. I hope that they go with the Ktar Deathbringer storyline.


    I absolutely love the Ktar origin and I feel the reincaration that's untethered from Egypt as the starting point is the coolest approach and could lend itself to an Cloud Atlas style story that brings in a wide breath of characters and actors of color across the DC universe.

    Aldis Hodge cast as Hawkman.
    Totally happy w. that. Met him once (about the second season of Leverage), he’s a really nice young man. As an aside, he and Ciara Renée would make a handsome couple as Hawkman/Hawkgirl; it’ll never happen but still.

But if we're talking a team book like a new Checkmate or Leviathan, I'd like to see Ben working with his peers first and foremost. But even then I'd still want to see Ben Jr. in some capacity, just to show Ben has a life outside the mission.
    Let's hope the new animated movie coming out shows him Justice. The he might get overshadowed by all the other cast.

    Whoa. And we all thought Lucas replaced Timothy post-Flashpoint.

    I reckon Lucas is still headed toward Batman role.

    Or Tim will be a villain like Barbara Gordon's brother.

    In terms of character design, Luke and Barbara have a lot in common as the tech savvy children to Batman's allies.

    I considered this as well, and I think it's a 60/40 chance. it's possible Tim is the antagonistic force that pushes Luke into being, possibly by killing Lucius (which feels like something DC would do, but admittedly I haven't read a lot of Ridley's work). Tim did have an somewhat combative relationship with Lucius; I can see them updating him to be the "N'jadaka" to Luke's "T'Challa", ya know? although thinking about it now, it is possible that they go with Tim and Luke working together in the cave; like he's Luke's "man in the chair". hmmm so that's like 60/35/5 odds?
