Green Lantern GL's non-presence was discussed with the studio's bigwigs (Greg Silverman, president of creative development Warner Bros and DC producer Charles Roven) in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. They claim that it's down to three reasons; That Green Lantern is too important a character to simply turn up in an ensemble film. That they already ...

According to user LDN_Films on Reddit (posting anonymously, but "checked out" and vouched for as genuine by Reddit's own AMA team), the issue was that Cavill was already in pre-production for his next film and required permission from the studio to change his appearance. Paramount point-blank refused to allow him to do so. This would strongly imply that ...

Wonder Woman's ability to bounce bullets off her bracelets requires her to have some superhuman reaction ability; she has to be able to recognize where the bullets are going and move her limbs to parry them with superhuman swiftness. So she does have a degree of superior speed, which also shows up in, for example, her running speed; she often shows the ...

The implication is that, of course a mother would think the problem stems from the disappearance of her child or is in some way related. You could read this same quote like this: Well, I can hardly read the news, anyway. So much bitterness. Of course I think all this bitterness is because he's gone. But I suppose a mother would think that. But it's not ...

Yalan Gur (or a member of the same species) The alien Green Lantern in the flashback resembles Yalan Gur, who first appeared in Green Lantern #19 (December, 1991), and who operated on Earth (and throughout Sector 2814) in the 10th Century. (Image comparison: Justice League – Film Review & The Ultimate Case) Note the cape, the enlarged mouth, and the ...

@Shreedhar pointed out in the comments that Steppenwolf seems to be generally up-to-speed with events on Earth, up to and including Superman's arrival and death. I wondered how this could be, and that's when I remembered: Steppenwolf was sending out Parademons to scout Earth. We see Batman tracking one at the start of the film. The most logical explanation, ...

EDIT Something I completely forgot to mention that a buddy reminded is that Wonder Woman's bracelets are also limiting her abilities. So while wearing the Bracelets of Submission her abilities are already suppressed. So whether or not she wants to hold back, while wearing them she already is... TLDR Wonder Woman is a God from the get-go in the DC Extended ...

The poster is an homage to Alex Ross, who has done the artwork for many DC comics, and that one on the comic cover was done by him. This article shows that there are many comparisons, and confirms that the photographer did base the poster off of his work. According to Clay Enos, the photographer for the movie poster: “I first saw this painting as part ...

Their powers are CGI heavy and would be very costly to animate correctly. Martian Manhunter is a shapeshifter. Take away his shapeshifting and you basically have a green guy with super strenght with mind reading powers. And he has back story of Superman (as noted by Edlothiad). So,slightly stronger Aquaman. Green Lantern is shapeshifting on steroids. A ...

Somewhere between April 21, 2016, and late August, 2017 Throughout the movie, there are several elements that can be dated. Some of them definite (give or take a week), some of them speculate a bit. But here goes, by order of appearance. (which is also the order of interestingness - but if you only want the best stuff, jump straight to 3/) 1/ It's been ...

Based on the comics: "Mother" is just the box itself. There are no "daughter boxes" but the mother boxes are occasionally referred to as just "mother" in the Fourth World corner of the D.C. universe. The boxes are living computers, which are individually constructed by their owners and share a empathic rapport with those users. They were invented by ...

It appears that, in the DCEU, Kryptonians don't decompose all that fast. A key plot point of Batman vs Superman was that Zod's corpse still seems to be in good condition Even if we presume that they froze the body, we only ever see Zod's corpse in what appears to be an unfrozen state (it seems highly unlikely it was frozen when Luthor cut off Zod's ...

That 'beam of light,' my friend, is a boom tube. While it appears that the mechanics of the boom tubes have never been explained, they allow basically instantaneous travel between point A and point B. Throughout the movie, Steppenwolf was simply returning back to home base to plan his next move. As for the ending...

We can see it here. It appears to be a black (what else?) Leatherman multitool

"Mother" is used to refer to Heggra, Steppenwolf's mother who (per the original script) is trapped in the Mother Boxes and whose energy is what powers them. Heggra created Cyborg, hence why Steppenwolf laments that he was 'born from her'. Mother is also what the New Gods refer to their MBs as in the comics. The original script for JL had Steppenwolf ...

He didn't, necessarily. As has been pointed out in the comments, there were several clues surrounding his revival that could easily have led him to glean the truth: he woke up in a vat of goo surrounded by other heroes, not in a hospital, and one of the first things he saw was (the head of) a statue of himself. However, he might not even have pieced it ...

Mera She appears to be a Queen of the sea, similar to Aquaman. Wikipedia lists her powers as: Mera has the unique ability to form "hard water" objects, as well as super strength and powers related to her adaptation to live under water. She has been shown to be powerful enough to control, albeit briefly, huge amounts of water, enough to pull an entire ...

Long story short, what we saw in Justice League wasn't Atlantis, and if memory serves, Mera did not introduce herself either? Hence why Arthur would meet her in a more "formal" way in Aquaman. Longer version is explained by an interview that director James Wan gave to the Huffington Post: In “Justice League,” we thought Arthur Curry/Aquaman traveled to ...

TLDR This was not a premonition or a dream I believe that the "dream sequence" was actually memories from the Flash that came back in time. Flash was not referring to Superman as the "him" in this instance, possibly as he was in an alternate future. So from the DC movies, although I am sure they have a general road map penciled down on a napkin somewhere, ...

Steppenwolf is Darkseid's uncle, the brother of Darkseid's mother Queen Heggra. Darkseid arranged to get Steppenwolf killed in the original war between New Genesis and Apokalips, to help clear the way to Darkseid's taking ultimate power on Apokalips. Once his position was secure, Darkseid resurrected his uncle, who had served since then, primarily as the ...

From the Mother Box Wikipedia page it states: Mother Boxes can access the energy of the Source for various effects; Some of these effects include, but are not limited to: rearrange molecular structure of matter and manipulate the life-force of a host to sustain it past fatal injuries,...and do many other things From this information it can be ...

In the Silver Age (June 1967), Superman was shown to be less powerful than the combined might of the Olympian gods. We know this because the Greco-Roman gods (looking into the future and mistakenly concluding that Superman was a rival god, who was greatly revered by mortal men in the twentieth century) created the being Zha-Vam (named for having the powers ...

I will base my answer only on the Justice League-2017 movie plot and what the DCEU explains about the Mother-boxes. According to the DCEU, A Mother Box, also called a Change Engine, is a perpetual energy matrix of Apokoliptian origin. It's powers (although not much explored in the JL-2017 movie), include: Biological manipulation Boom-tube generation ...

There's a couple of reasons I can think of off the top of my head. The green lantern movie tanked, it sank without trace. My wifes reaction to it was "So his power is he can manifest anything he can imagine as long as he concentrates? How can anyone stand against him when he could just imagine velociraptors with machine-guns?". I doubt you'll see the green ...

Steppenwolf has had the corded electro-axe as his primary weapon since his character redesign in the 1980s. For instance, his Super Powers Collection action figure carried it. I have not ever tracked down an origin story for that weapon. However, it does bear a significant resemblance to the electro-prod used by the very minor god Brola in New Gods #2: ...

The film is stated, in a voiceover, to be about 6 months after Superman's death.

Wonder Woman is one of those heroes whose powers have changed greatly over the years. She occasionally has had the power of flight, but in the sort of "carried aloft by the winds" variety, which implies she couldn't fly that quickly. As others have said, she has super fast reaction time in order to be able to deflect bullets. While she is clearly moving ...

The movie suit: Bruce: Silica-based quartz and fabric. Abrasion resistant. Heat resistant. Barry: Uh, yeah, I do competitive ice dancing. Bruce: It's what they use on the space shuttle to prevent it from burning up on reentry. Barry: I do... very competitive ice dancing. -Justice League, 2017 The TV suit is repurposed from a prototype ...

Its a pair of pliers, or a leatherman to be specific. I never see him use them again though.
