    It sounds just like the cartoon JL. Batman clearly will job everyone, while they all will look incompetent. And I don't buy we will get Martian Manhunter. I say it will be Cyborg.

    I will feel so bad for the actors if they have to deliver those lines.

    It's just like the great cerebral dialogue in that blockbluster money making Avengers, isn;t it?

    If they are going against Darkseid, I hope they have the kind of mass destruction we see in films like Emmerich's 2012. Every past film has already put mass destruction to a new level. G.I. Joe: Retaliation even promises to show entire cities destroyed. So I think this film needs to up their game by having the heroes fight while an entire American coastline collapses around them.

    Aquaman is a better character than Wonder Woman. Don't deny it, you know it's true.

    What else is Batman supposed to do? Throw Batarangs and be cute? Batman fits the League best when he's the strategist of the group as he's portrayed as the smartest. That doesn't mean he's going to boss everyone around, just give the others advice like Cap did in the Avengers. I don't remember people saying that Iron Man and the Hulk came off as "incompetent".

    Well... I don't personally like Joss Whedon's writing but I'll admit there's a certain geeky wit to it. I might be one of the only people who saw the Avengers and thought it was pretty bad film, but it certainly had better dialogue than that shockingly bad line which is just a poor rip off of Aquaman's line to her from Flashpoint: Wonder Woman and the Furies. "You're Fierce!" Sounded much better.

    Batman as the group's strategist sounds fine to me, kind of like how he is in the current book, but "easily the most complex written" kind of makes me wary. It's like there's a default writing mode that dictates that Batman can't do anything physically on par with his teammates, so he has to be the guy who has to do the thinking, and in the wrong writer's hands that means Batman does all the thinking whereas everyone stands and waits for his direction. Really, at best that makes the other characters boring from a narrative perspective, and at worst look like morons. There has to be a better medium in which Batman can be a key player on the Justice League, but without nerfing the other heroes' abilities and critical thinking skills.

    I believe there is a very good reason Aquaman acquired a reputation for being uncool, and no amout of Johns boosting or Lee spread-paging will change that.

    Because of some crappy cartoon and Silver Age comics? Modern age Aquaman was cool before Johns with PAD writing him.

    Sadly they bumped him back to that Silver Age. I liked him when he looked like a pirate...not when he looks like Steve Rogers underwater cousin.

    I highly doubt all of that is going to happen. Well, maybe the Superman bit.

    I liked these lines because they showed Supes for the first time being amazed at seeing a woman as strong as him. And then WW's cockiness made me smile.

    Sounds good! I guess they're going with The Flash personality from the Justice League cartoon. Hope they also have a Cyborg cameo. Maybe show Victor get injured in one of Darkseid's attacks.

    Well I have no idea how valid any of this is, but it sure sounds good, that's all I can say.
