It's highly unlikely that Batman wouldn't inspire a bunch of people, so Harper makes perfect sense.

Oh look, someone remembered that Thor-Girl existed.

But where's current Odinson Thor? Unless the young, surprised Thor is supposed to be current Thor surprised he got his real hammer back.

Yeah, his name is Maxwell Lord. Superman in Man of Steel or when he killed the Pocket Universe Kryptonians wasn't bloodlusted, but victim of circumstance. Superman was bloodlusted when he was brainwashed by Maxwell Lord, and him being bloodlusted is the reason why we have the Injustice series.

Bunn is still writing this. Interesting. His first story arc in Agent Venom left a bad taste in my mouth. I've been hesitant to give him another shot. (+)

The series has been excellent since issue 1, so if you're willing, give it a go.

WTF Robin doesnt really do anything in the Court of Owl story? Are they adapting that specfic story or just using the court in this film?

Not all adaptations are 1:1 adaptations.

Borrow from Morrison's work? So it's a combo of the Black Glove and the Court of Owls, I take it? Because that's how it should be.

Honestly, they're both probably equal in strength, so it comes down to fighting ability, equipment, and extra abilities. I don't see Aquaman winning this fight because of a stat advantage. If he wins, it's because he has a trident or because the fight ended up near a body of water where he has extra abilities to use and has superior mobility.

Would people here be mad if a Japanese movie company made a Batman movie and had a Japanese man play Bruce Wayne?

Bruce Wayne? Not really, unless the movie took place in Japan and he was still named Bruce Wayne; then it wouldn't make any goddamn sense. A Japanese Batman, however, would be perfectly fine.

This movie would be perfectly fine just as long as they don't try to give everyone Japanese names and have them play Asian or Japanese characters. Creating new characters that are obviously in the vein of the manga and anime would be perfectly fine in spite of the fact that that Hollywood could've used the original characters and original setting and no one would care and would enjoy it nonetheless.

Besides, whitewashing is a serious issue, the reverse isn't; see the recent Exodus movie as a current example.
