I'm glad they brought Jennifer Kale back, but did they have to rip her face off? Kinda harsh...

Hey I think casting Will as Deadshot was dumb but it has nothing to do with his race. . . Oh wait why didn't they cast him had black spider or black manta?

Seems race related to me.

That's comic fans, I guess. Seriously, there's no way in hell that they'd use Black Spider considering he'd just be a Spider-Man rip-off. They probably want to wait on Black Manta too until they establish Aquaman, so Will Smith as Deadshot is fine.

This movie should be awesome. I even think Oprah as Waller could be interesting if it happens. Maybe we could get the Wall back in comics then too.

I think Wonder Woman takes this one. She can deflect Bill's energy attacks and could probably take him in hand-to-hand.

@shazam117:

I wouldn't be too concerned over that. It's not like they're just going to take the first woman to submit a resume. Plus I think I would be fitting for Wonder Woman to be a female-centric project.

I'm pretty disappointed by all of the body-shaming coming from comic fans regarding the Wonder Woman casting.

No one seemed to be all that concerned when tubby Chris Pratt got cast as Star-Lord. All that we've seen so far from Gal is one promo image that was taken who knows how long ago. She's been shown to be training heavily for this role and considering BvS, the Justice League film, and the Wonder Woman film are all happening in a little less than two years, I'm thinking she'll be pretty built for her solo film.

This isn't a gender thing. Gadot seems far too frail to play WW. It isn't body shaming to say someone doesn't look right for a role.

I'm not saying it's a gender thing. Chris Pratt was too fat to play Star-Lord at one time as well, but he got in shape. I'm sure we'll see the same thing from Gal.

Also, there's a difference between saying someone doesn't look right for the role and saying they look like a skeleton or a toothpick. The latter being an example of the body shaming shown in this thread.

This came down to a popularity contest and a voting error. My vote never registered which seemed like a common theme among Elektra voters.

Elektra has dealt which trick arrows before and anyone in their right mind knows that she would murder Ollie 100% of the time.

I wish Polaris took Wanda up on her offer and joined this team.

@youknowwhattodo:

I know this is a delayed response, but you pose a valid question.

I would say that DC should value the character more because she transcends the role of a "female knockoff". She's more than just a girl version of Hawkman and she's shown to be able to serve as a member of the Justice League in several different incarnations of the team as an independent character. I see her as a sort of paragon for female characters. Not to the same extent as Wonder Woman, of course, but she shows that "girl versions of male characters" can be viable properties of their own. She also has a kick-ass personality.
