I mean you just don't get it. Cameos are lame. This show has had cameos. Where has it gotten when Fury or Hill were on the show? NOWHERE... that's where. I'm not a hater, I'm just a realist.

Everyone who's just excited about the name change hates or dislikes Canada...

How dare Whedon do this? How do you give a character's history to someone else? I don't care if this movie universe is different from the comic universe. Ultron is a part of Pym's character:

I'd be upset if Hank Pym didn't create Ultron. Its a driving for for his character and for Ultron's. Ultron is sort of Hank Pym's dark side, dark secrets made flesh (metal). He is Pym's hate, fear, loathing, resentments, angry, and all that stuff. Ultron was created using Pym's brain patterns so its sort of all Pym's fault that Ultron hates and wants to wipe out humanity. Its Pym's constant failure, reminder, of his dark self.

And Ultron is also like his son, its also a generational thing. Pym created Ultron and passed down to him all his hatreds, fears, intolerance, etc. Then Ultron creates the Vision who Ultron tries to pass all his bigotry and hatred down to, but this is the "grandfather's" chance to redeem himself and the grandfather (who has changed his ways) saves the grandson (Vision) from the same hatred. So Pym is like the father of Ultron and the grandfather of the Vision.

I'd be sad and a little disappointed if Pym wasn't somehow the main creator of Ultron in Avengers 2. Even if they have to do a round about way of explaining it. Like He is this scientist who used to work with Stark, Banner, and SHIELD, in the past. But has since fallen from grace with all of them. Now Pym sees his former friends and colleagues being celebrated as heroes and loved by all and a small part of him hates that. He finishes his AI he and Stark started years ago (with Jarvis) and uses his own brain patterns to create Ultron. Then Ultron becomes the psycho robot from the comics we know and the unknown scientist has to help the Avengers stop his creation. After he helps them stop Ultron, with the aid of Ultron's creation, the Vision, Pym and Janet join the Avengers and work for SHIELD as special agents. Pym's way to make up for his mistakes, crimes, and all the death and destruction Ultron caused. So he could become Ant Man after the fact, after Ultron and after teaming up with the Avengers to stop Ultron. I'd even be fine with, in the movie, if he had as much action scenes as that normal human scientist from Avengers 1 (the guy who knew Thor).

Having Jarvis be the original Ultron AI prototype helps involve Stark in a big way. So it would give Stark a bigger role to go with his bigger paycheck. But with the idea that (along with the original cast of Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Hulk, and Fury, and possibly Falcon) we are also going to include Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, and Ultron for that matter, and possibly Vision, makes me wonder how much more could they include. Could they include Hank Pym and Janet? Would they have the screen time to make sure they are involved, even if they are normal humans not involved in action scenes?

Pretty much that.

With all these new introductions don't you think that Whedon can put in the Pyms? He can, he just doesn't want to because he hates Hank & Jan for some strange reason... or he's just screwing with us. But somehow I doubt it because before the first movie came out he confirmed no Pym then it happened. It's pointless to hope to just end up disappointed.

"In Joss we trust" ? F#&% NO.

Here's the Members of The Justice League movie:

AQUAMAN

Batman (Bruce Wayne)

Superman

Hal Jordan

Barry Allen

Martian Manhunter

Wonder Woman

Why would they be in the movie? Because they were the first! John Stewart, Green Arrow, Hawkman etc. fans. As awesome as these characters they were NEVER original JL members. NUFF SAID.

Dropped this book like a bad habit (after issue 21, Shazam was by far the best part) after they announced that it will encompass the two other JL books that are not on my pull list, raised the price of JLD, and dropped the page count of JLA without adjusting the price. What a joke. The big two are getting less and less of my business by doing sh!t like this. Especially when the independents are giving me more for my money with much richer, original stories (not just the Civil War re-hash this "Trinity War" is...) and actual use of the page counts instead of 10-12 pages of adverts.

I am starting to move to trades more and more for the big two's $3.99 books with Chapters/Indigo's 20-35% discount as that's the only way not to get ripped off by them.

You know, I won't be a marvel troll & call you an idiot for having your own opinion. Dropping this book was up to you but honestly, your missing out. BIG TIME.

Amazing book. 10/10. I will miss John's run on GL. However, now like he did with Flash & Hal, it's time to give Aquaman that same treatment. Was it worth $7.99? HELL YES! There was never a doubt in my mind, that I should have paid less for this comic, in fact I'd even pay more for something this brilliant. Which IMO gives the competition a run for their money. Thank you Mr. Johns for doing what you do best & not only inspiring me, but millions of other comic readers also.

Martian F'KIN Manhunter! THAT's ALL I WANT! It's not like DC doesn't have other original good characters! I'll even name a few original/unique characters that I'd like to see: Firestorm, Starfire, Black Canary, Beast Boy, Plastic Or Elongated Man, Mirror Master, Vixen, Static or Black Lightning, Zatanna, Doctor Fate, Red Tornado, Poison Ivy & of course Martian Manhunter! But If I had to pick just one, it's my favorite martian; J'onn J'onnzz. It's not like he's not a bad or unpopular character, Boon knows ALOT of people want Detective John Jones... So why would we possibly get ZOD & the clone gang instead? ok... this is all BS... I hope so anyway.

EFF Batgirl, We already have Batman & Nightwing. We don't need Supergirl, Powergirl, Batgirl, Red Hood or any other clones! (Red Hood would most likely be a mix of Harley, Nightwing & Batman)

Whoever wants Cassandra Cain, well if this Batgirl rumor is true, then I'm sure we will get Cassie Cain & Stephanie Brown skins.

Scorpion would be cool but, without him doing Fatalities, it would... what's the word I'm looking for ummmmm..... SUCK!!!

ZOD?!? GTFO... I'll watch him in Man Of Steel, I don't want to play as him in Injustice. I'm sure he'd be somewhat of a Superman clone anyway...

This cast of characters is perfect, it would be RUINED if Batgirl, Supergirl, Todd or Zod (lol) is in it. Please Boon, don't screw this up! Originality, PREASE!!! SANK YOU.

Still looks "meh" but it honestly looks better than the actual trailer!

Now I know why they call the book Superior Spider-Man! Oc sure is more superior than Pete! From what I read. This book is interesting, yet... I'll still pass. However, is it bad that I think Otto should remain as Spider-Man? When Peter finally takes control. He should have learned from Ock's influence & be similar to Ock's Spider-Man. That's my 2 cents anyway.
