That . . . I'm . . . WOW. I'm actually looking forward to this movie.

It's kind of hilarious, really. For years people kept thinking a Wonder Woman movie was impossible and that Aquaman was the biggest joke in the superhero community. Now Wonder Woman is the best DCEU film in ages and Aquaman looks both fun and badass. Meanwhile mainstays like Superman, Batman and the Flash are pretty much terrible in the DCEU. At least Superman was well done in Supergirl and the Flash has his own show that is more hit than miss. Poor Batman doesn't even have that.

The Batman has the horrible luck of having the executives at Warner Bros. absolutely terrified of ever giving him a live-action television series.

And even as campy as that was, it was still awesome as balls.

I don't remember the red in Amber Heard's hair being so obviously out of a bottle in Justice League.

This is the dead giveaway, I think, that shows that the film was originally intended to be shown in the same "grey and washed out" color palette as Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of the Mommy Issues. Which means the costume designs, the hair and make-up, the set lighting, and everything was designed to look good in that cool, grey-blue, grimy look. When they color corrected it all in Post-Production and decided to make everything more warm and bright, it all went too far into the plastic, action figure look, as we saw in Justice League.

I know, right? Maybe if this does well, we'll get more "silly" villains on screen. I just hope they actually call him Black Manta, I'm tired of the lack of superhero names in superhero films.

I’m extremely impressed they didn’t alter his classic “UFO Head” design at all. The head seems a little smaller than some artists’ depictions over the years, but it’s still clearly Black Manta.

I don't know why Black Manta is a "silly" villain. He killed Aquababy. That's like Joker-level street cred.

Wait, maybe the clue is in the word "Aquababy." That's hardly Black Manta's fault, though!

Yeah, anyone who saw Challenge of the Superfriends knows who that is. And I really hope he turns out more dangerous than Orm, because Black Manta in the comics is actually kind of scary.

How weird is it to find ourselves living in a world where Aquaman and Wonder Woman look like they’re going to be more popular and better received than the Batman/Superman crossover movie?

Is this real life?
