I remember her briefly from Deadly Class and I still got to finish the 1st Season of Animal Control, think that I left it hanging just as when her character showed up.

Not sure if we can say the adaptation of Deadly Class was well-received since SyFy canceled it after 1 Season despite the involvement of the Russo brothers. From what I remember it needed to take some liberties like The Boys did because the main characters were quite unlikable saldy.

Well, this confirms at least that The Authority characters are indeed gonna have a presence and role in the first DCU film just as quite many leaks/scoopers were claiming.

Gonna be hard to argue that Legacy isn't being used, one way or the other, to set up the aforementioned Authority film.
CAPTAINPINKEYE - 11/15/2023, 4:44 PM
I love her TShirt!
ModHaterSLADE - 11/15/2023, 4:46 PM
That's some nice eye candy. Shame Deadly Class got axed, it had potential.
TheVisionary25 - 11/15/2023, 4:57 PM
@bkmeijer1 - it’s Green Lantern , Hawkgirl , Mister Terrific & Metamorpho
bkmeijer1 - 11/15/2023, 5:06 PM
@TheVisionary25 - oh yeah, kinda forgot about the other two. Could see them be a version of The Terrifics, but preferably still in a minor role
TheVisionary25 - 11/15/2023, 4:48 PM
Cool , congrats to her!!.

I can see The Authority being akin to The Elite in the comics where they challenge Superman’s ideals in beliefs but being this “any means necessary” group of “heroes”.

Anyway , I am concerned about overcrowdedness in this but I have faith in Gunn to pull it off so cautiously optimistic overall.
dracula - 11/15/2023, 4:53 PM
@TheVisionary25 - well the elite was based on the authority
NinnesMBC - 11/15/2023, 4:55 PM
@dracula - Should use them instead considering they're the ones that actually challenged Superman in that well-received story arc that even got an animated movie.
dracula - 11/15/2023, 4:57 PM
@NinnesMBC - true but the elite only really have 1 story

The authority have a decade of comics to pull from
NinnesMBC - 11/15/2023, 5:03 PM
@dracula - A really good 1 story. How many do these lowkey anti-heroes have? Their only relevance was some years ago with that comic Superman and The Authority, that's it.
dracula - 11/15/2023, 5:07 PM
@NinnesMBC - havent read the Authority yet, but from what ive heard the Warren Ellis run was top notch.

the other runs, from what ive heard the runs after Ellis left were what "Whats So Funny About Truth, Justice and The American Way" was taking shots at.

was a very popular series.
NinnesMBC - 11/15/2023, 5:23 PM
@dracula - So only one good run and the rest that came afterwards were just riding off the coattails of The Elite and was just salvaged by it's popularity. Sounds meh.
BlackSpider - 11/15/2023, 4:51 PM
Why the [frick] authority characters in superman.
dracula - 11/15/2023, 4:54 PM
@Tigerman33 - serve the same purpose as the elite but with the added bonus of potential for spin off
FireandBlood - 11/15/2023, 4:54 PM
@Tigerman33 - Because this is a DCU build up first and a Superman movie second.
NinnesMBC - 11/15/2023, 4:58 PM
@Tigerman33 - Gunn must want conflict and probably Engineer will have a cool fight against Metamorpho.

But clearly they want this new cinematic universe to already be populated by many powered individuals from the get-go and have to prepare that team for their spinoff film that, I think, takes place right after this one.
grif - 11/15/2023, 5:35 PM
@Tigerman33 - my guess is to do that world building these movies are supposed to do. makes more sense than adding all of the other heroes.
garu - 11/15/2023, 5:59 PM
@Tigerman33 - Same reason why Civil War had an ensemble cast, to contrast Superman's views with the rest of the heroes in the world. Not really that hard to grasp.
BlackSpider - 11/15/2023, 6:08 PM
@garu - @grif - The authority aren't even dc characters. So yes it is hard to grasp why a solo dc movie would have non dc characters.
garu - 11/15/2023, 6:16 PM
@Tigerman33 - incorrect, the publisher - Wildstorm - was added into the DC universe in 2010, they've been part of DC for over a decade. Jesus, it took you a decade to find out?
BlackSpider - 11/15/2023, 6:30 PM
@garu - None of the characters are dc characters, like you got added in. Also why so sensitive someone critizes daddy gunn?
CAPTAINPINKEYE - 11/15/2023, 6:31 PM
@Tigerman33 - You’ll have to watch the movie to find out.
BlackSpider - 11/15/2023, 6:33 PM
@CAPTAINPINKEYE - Eh ill read on wikepedia
videovac - 11/15/2023, 6:45 PM
"Because this is a DCU build up first and a Superman movie second." - @FireandBlood

You wouldn't be saying half this bullshit if it had a MARVEL logo on it.

How the fukc can anyone take you seriously? How do you expect people to take you seriously?
FireandBlood - 11/15/2023, 6:54 PM
@videovac - I don’t 🤷‍♂️
McMurdo - 11/15/2023, 9:51 PM
@BlackSpider - you don't know what you are talking about friend.
BlackSpider - 11/15/2023, 11:55 PM
@McMurdo - Yeah I think I do, my buddyboo
Superspecialawesomeguy - 11/15/2023, 4:53 PM
I know nothing about her but...

Forthas - 11/15/2023, 4:53 PM
I guess the SOLO Superman film was not over stuffed just yet!
FireandBlood - 11/15/2023, 4:55 PM
@Forthas - They never had any interest in making one of those
Forthas - 11/15/2023, 5:05 PM
@FireandBlood - Did James Gunn not say...

"I was offered Superman years ago — I initially said no because I didn’t have a way in that felt unique and fun and emotional that gave Superman the dignity he deserved.”

I don't think taking more and more of the spotlight away from Superman gives him "...the dignity he deserves"

This is a shameless effort to hyper start a shared universe on the back of Superman. To be fair one could argue it worked for Wolverine who wasintroduced in the first X-men film. But I remain skeptical.
bkmeijer1 - 11/15/2023, 5:08 PM
@Forthas - based in that comment, it does feel like the movie is still gonna be a major focus on Superman.

Could kinda compare it to CATWS. That had multiple heroes and a villain that was gonna be a hero later on as well, yet it was still very much about Cap.
99OPTIMISTPRIME - 11/15/2023, 5:22 PM
@Forthas - Unfortunately most people in Hollywood, only like Superman because of the Christopher Reeve movies, not necessarily the comic book lore. So it feels like James Gunn sort of got roped into writing a Superman reboot. And the only way he could get excited about it, was if he added others characters in it, that interested him more.
Forthas - 11/15/2023, 5:24 PM
@bkmeijer1 - I have to disagree about Winter had six super heroes/ villains and that is counting Nick Fury and Black Widow, and Batroc...three humans!!!

This already has six super powered characters, not including a rumored Lex Luthor, or any other members of the Authority assuming they are part of the story as a team. In addition to that Captain America, Nick Fury and Black widow were already established in the universe from multiple earlier films.

No this film is over stuffed. A lot of people who were ragging on BvS for being overstuffed are going to owe Zack Snyder an apology if they are now supporting this. I say that as a person that believes he is uniquely the MOST responsible for the state of the DC film universe.
