    I was seriously debating if I should post this or not because itís pretty telling. Margot Harley, Maoma Aquaman, and Gal WW are the ďmainĒ versions and will continue. Keaton is coming back soon as the ďmainĒ Batman apparently. And then you get Chris Reeve Superman rather than Cavill. Iím sure Iím reading too much into this but it feels like another reminder that Cavill will be joining Routh.

    The use of Reeve Superman is pretty indicative of the post-2016 mantra that is occurring for Clark in pretty much every medium outside of games


    Classic Superman at all costs


    Superman and Lois is essentially about an evil Superman being a villain to be beaten by classic Superman

    I don't know how you could take it any other way than indicative that Cavill and Affleck are firmly in the rearview.

    That’s too many magic users for a JL lineup.

    On one hand its sad. On another, I mean talk about still being the freaking benchmark. He stands out still. Same with Keaton. They look better next to Gal than the Snyder versions do, lol.

    You know they would do it if they could

    Especially with how the set photos from the Flash pretty clearly show Keaton and Supergirl are on Barry’s Earth. They’re totally writing those two out, Affleck getting straight up deleted and Cavill maybe getting succeeded by his daughter.

    I don't think it's a deliberate slight, but it's definitely where my mind went lol. It makes sense to use the benchmarks when they are still in the transition period between new versions and they don't know for sure how Pattinson will be received, and Superman isn't even that far along yet.

    So does this mean Supergirl in Flashpoint is the Helen Slater version?

    I'm not sure about Keaton, but Reeves is iconic and it makes sense to put him here. Its not like they had some potential alternatives for Aquaman or Harley and I think Gal is close to being iconic WW now as well.

    Keaton is absolutely iconic. Batman 89 was a cultural phenomenon when it came out. I wasn't even alive then but its still written about today as huge movie that set the stage for how modern superhero films and blockbusters in general are marketed.

    Yeah Keaton along with Miller and Moore is what revamped Batman in pop culture after the “old shame” of the Adam West TV show. Still Bale was in 2 billion dollar movies that were pop culture phenomenons in their own right, they could’ve used him but they instead went with Keaton. Just hard to shake the feeling it was intentional.

    I think it is due to 3 reasons.
    1: make it clear who is staying and who is leaving.
    2: they are the most iconic versions.
    3: a clue of the future, we will see the classic superman in the flash movie.

    I'm genuinely surprised they're not using Pattinson's Batman.

    Not really? Unless you view Edge as an evil Superman.
