He rules over most of the world and commands it's largest army. That good enough for you?

Not really. Sure, that makes him a formidable world leader, but it doesn't really do anything for his superhero cred.

How useful is that army on land and in the air?

Hawkman was pretty cool on Superfriends. Here he and Aquaman slickly handle an oil monster. 

 

 

 

Is this the thread where you ask for a Jonny Quest movie? 'Cause this is all kinds of amazing.

How many modern world leaders do you know of that are willing to grab a weapon and lead their armies into battle? I'd say the fact that he is willing to risk his own life like that is fairly bad-ass.

The DC Atlanteans have the means to fight on land. I believe their technology is portrayed as fairly advanced compared to mankind. teacha.gif

Meh. Isn't that attitude kind of a prerequisite for being a superhero? I mean, I don't remember seeing a Superadministrator or Wonderbureaucrat comic book.

For most, sure. The point is it separates him from the vast majority of world leaders. Even fictional ones.

Besides isn't being a bad-ass a prerequisite in itself for being a superhero?

I have a feeling that aquaman will be adversely affected by entourage. If he comes up, I'm sure people will start linking that goofy shit to him and it's gonna be an uphill battle to make him anything more than a punch line.

I doubt you have to worry about the audience linking Aquaman to Entourage. How many 11 year old Ari Gold fans are there? Plus, AC doesn't need much else to be a punchline these days.

Jesse Eisenberg as Luthor and Jeremy Irons as Alfred



Quote:
Warner Bros. Pictures announced today that Jesse Eisenberg has been set to star as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons will play Alfred in the upcoming Zack Snyder untitled Superman/Batman film. The dual announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

Snyder stated, “Lex Luthor is often considered the most notorious of Superman’s rivals, his unsavory reputation preceding him since 1940. What’s great about Lex is that he exists beyond the confines of the stereotypical nefarious villain. He’s a complicated and sophisticated character whose intellect, wealth and prominence position him as one of the few mortals able to challenge the incredible might of Superman. Having Jesse in the role allows us to explore that interesting dynamic, and also take the character in some new and unexpected directions.”

The director added, “As everyone knows, Alfred is Bruce Wayne’s most trusted friend, ally and mentor, a noble guardian and father figure. He is an absolutely critical element in the intricate infrastructure that allows Bruce Wayne to transform himself into Batman. It is an honor to have such an amazingly seasoned and gifted actor as Jeremy taking on the important role of the man who mentors and guides the guarded and nearly impervious façade that encapsulates Bruce Wayne.”

Eisenberg received Academy Award®, Golden Globe Award, Screen Actors Guild Award® and BAFTA Award nominations for his starring role as Mark Zuckerberg in David Fincher’s “The Social Network.” He also starred in Woody Allen’s “To Rome with Love” and Louis Letterier’s “Now You See Me.” He next appears in “The Double” and “Night Moves.”

Irons won the Academy Award® for his portrayal of Claus von Bülow in “Reversal of Fortune.” His work in the film also garnered him a Golden Globe Award. He won an Emmy Award and a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award® for his performance in the TV miniseries “Elizabeth I,” opposite Helen Mirren, and recently starred on the small screen as Rodrigo Borgia in Neil Jordan’s highly acclaimed Showtime series “The Borgias,” for which Irons earned a Golden Globe nomination. He was recently nominated for a SAG Award® for the PBS Great Performances television miniseries “The Hollow Crown,” for his performance as Henry IV.

Man, the film has been pushed back a year and I can't edit the title. Can I contact a mod for that so that I can update it?
