ALL TO FIND THE AVATAR
"I’m the original Beifong!"
Gal Gadot’s “Wonder Woman,” Ray Fisher’s “Cyborg”, Jason Momoa’s “Aquaman” and Ezra Miller’s “Flash” mark milestones for the genre
While all eyes have looked to Marvel to produce a female-led superhero film, Warner Bros. and DC Comics catapulted ahead in the race on Wednesday with the announcement of a solo “Wonder Woman” film, starring Gal Gadot. The film is set to release in 2017.
Additionally, Warner Bros announced “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa, will be released in 2018 and gave the greenlight to a solo “Cyborg” film, to be released in 2020, starring African-American actor Ray Fisher.
DC also made history by casting out LGBT actor Ezra Miller to play superspeedster “The Flash,” getting his own solo film in 2018. Miller, who confirmed to Out Magazine that he was “queer” in 2012, becomes the first openly gay actor to lead a major superhero comic book adaptation on the big screen.

THIS REVELATION HAS RUINED MY LIFE
one of the main reasons I’ve never found batman a compelling hero
i so don’t need this from yall right now
I’ve said this and everyone called me out on it… Batman really ain’t shit
But yet everyone loves Iron Man.
Which just goes to show, have the right sassy ‘tude and you’re not a message, you’re a babe.
I’ve got to disagree with that last point. Yup, Iron Man is ludicrously rich, and I’m not saying he’s all that progressive as a character, but I think the concept is less gross than with Batman. Iron Man doesn’t spend all his time beating up purse snatchers and rounding up the “criminally insane” to be interred in one of the top contenders for Most Creepy-Ass Fictional Asylum. He deals with the cosmic-level threats - metahumans, aliens, and, yes, in some cases, industrialists gone mad with power. He’s the guy who punches up, even though his position means that “up” is primarily governments, alien armies, and gods.
And, at least in the movie universes, Tony Stark makes sure his company works on beneficial projects - and, when it comes to his attention that the weapons he makes have been falling into the wrong hands, he stops making them, even though that means his profits take a huge hit. Bruce Wayne in the Nolanverse films, on the other hand, lets a group of corrupt corporate officials take over his company while he’s bouncing around the world studying martial arts.
So, Iron Man’s far from perfect, but I genuinely think it’s more than the attitude.
Nolanverse Batman is VERY different to animated Batman. In most of the animations which feature Batman, not only does he take on cosmic-level threats including metahumans, aliens, and in some cases industrialists gone mad with power (just watch Justice League: Unlimited), he does A LOT of charity work (Batman: The Animated Series).
It pisses me of so much that a large number of people seem to think Nolan’s Batman is the only credible incarnation of the caped crusader but that shit is just weak. Need I remind you that Bruce took in Dick Grayson after his parents were murdered because HE KNOWS WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO LOSE YOUR WHOLE WORLD.
Bruce is highly empathetic towards struggling kids and the whole “dark and brooding” theme of his character is simply because he doesn’t let people get close to him as he sees it as a potential risk - letting his emotions get involved can influence his judgement.
Sure, he could probably get more involved with his company and use his status to change major world problems for the better - I’m a not arguing that Batman is the perfect hero because he’s NOT - but Bruce fights to protect those who cannot protect themselves, and a lot of situations in which this is valid is street-level crime, ESPECIALLY in big cities like Gotham where the slums are dog-eat-dog.
HIT MY FIRST THOUSAND FOLLOWERS!!! Thanks everyone for following me :D
So I’m a little late to the party but I’ve started watching Kill La Kill!
I’m enjoying the Child of Light from Ubisoft Montreal these days. It’s quite pretty.
