Like Bayformers, strap a big-name character to a redshirt who dies 5 minutes into the movie.


OverlordOfCats1

Arcee…


Rogue_MS_473

And Wheeljack... And Sideswipe... And Shockwave... And Onslaught... Aaaaand Sideways... And as much as I hate to say it, Blitzwing.


OverlordOfCats1

Oh I forgot how they did Blitzwing dirty in Bumblebee


Rogue_MS_473

Was he even a triple-changer now that you mention it? He had such a killer design that's a shame he got wasted for an otherwise perfect flick.


OverlordOfCats1

Nah, he just looks like every other Seeker in the movie, so much so people thought it was Starscream at first


[deleted]

Apparently it was meant to be Starscream at first, but they changed him to Blitzwing in the reshoots when Bumblebee went from a one off to a franchise starter


Rogue_MS_473

At least it was one of the first decepticons with genuine COLOR in a film. And Dropkick and Shatter still are cool OC, I think.


DarthDinkster

And then there’s Skids and Mudflap who actually should’ve died


Rogue_MS_473

They DID die in the Dark of the Moon comic, so at least that's something.


RareD3liverur

I mean Sideswipe said some lines did a few things and never died on screen so that's something. And Wheeljack or 'Que' got to be a quirky inventor sort of....even though he did look like a freak


Neat-Mathematician-8

didn't know that Jason was into milfs


Cranyx

I wonder what events in Jason's life might have led him to have mommy issues. [The world may never know](https://64.media.tumblr.com/eea39e123fb6602a7501cefd91864ab8/tumblr_inline_pe81i4Avbv1rzftj5_500.jpg)

Neat-Mathematician-8

***shut up shut up shut up shut up***


RedHood-Reddit-Needs

Or Maybe just Amazonians; he did like Wonder Woman and there was that “warm thoughts Robin” panel, and the Batfamily webcomic hints she is his favourite of the League. I believe wonder girl also teamed up with him and the ‘dreamy’ lantern in countdown


creeper205861

looks more like a gilf


Tandril91

Gggggggggggggggggilf. She’s millennia old, after all.


ThisGul_LOL

💀💀💀


dwa4s968ada8w641

What’s the point of casting names chracters that we do not notice in the movie?


Some-Dog9800

I'm guessing they just needed more Amazon names. They also have a Menalippe who isn't a priestess.


RealKBears

That was like a selling point of the DCEU


Conscious-Weekend-91

Yeah, sometimes I forgot that Jimmy Olsen was in the Snyderverse


DPTONY

That’s because he was fucking shot in the first moments of BVS


two-for-joy

This reminded me of that time Snyderfans argued BvS had the first asian superhero, not Shang-Chi, because there was a random asian scientist in the background that they claimed was Ryan Choi.


RealKBears

Lol by that logic, Marvel beat Snyder to that one because of Hogan the Grim in Thor 1 and 2, and the woman who was a relative of Amadeus Cho in Age of Ultron


RainingBolts

This is Keanustine and Scarjo erasure smh


NeutralNoodle

I think that was ZSJL. He’s Silas Stone’s assistant I think and he actually has a fair bit of screentime in it but he’s never implied to be the Atom.


Equal-Ad-2710

Oh my god don’t remind me


Kalse1229

I’ve said the same exact thing more than once. Like, why is Martian Manhunter in ZSJL? He doesn’t even do anything! Just sets up for a sequel that, let’s be real, is not happening in this lifetime.


Baramos_

They let the Amazon actresses pick their own Amazonian names.


Comics-and-videogame

I wish they would stop having known supporting character names on random people who barely speak or have screen time, or characters not even resembling their comic counterpart. They did it with Jimmy Olsen, Mercy Graves, Cassandra Cain, etc.


Neat-Mathematician-8

Jimmy Olsen getting executed by the fucking Taliban is still one of my favourite moments just cos of how goddamn absurd it is


Comics-and-videogame

And then when they get backlash for doing it, they’ll be like “the real Jimmy Olsen is still there, that guy was just using his name as an alias.”


nicktorious_

They do that w *everything*. “Oh that wasn’t the real Doomsday, he’s still in space.” “That’s not the real Lex Luthor, it’s his son”. My brother in Christ, are you going to use any *real* characters then at all?


slade707

Snyder gives a fuck about DC characters tho 🙃


TacticalSoapRocks

Getting downvoted cause people can’t tell you’re being sarcastic


slade707

Someone remind these idiots where we are


mizzymichie

Yeah same. It kinda ends up wasting a slot on a good character and means they might not get a proper adaptation in later years. I’m still mad about Cass, what did they add by wasting an established character who had nothing in common with their comic counterpart?


wisconsinking

They should've just made an original character for the role or at least had the street kid be Jason Todd, he would've fit PERFECTLY in the movie. He could've easily been based off of John Conner from Terminator 2.


mizzymichie

Jason would’ve been a perfect use. Black mask, street kid that would steal a diamond cause orphan, anti-hero leaning, future joker connection, Harley taking him under his wing but having a sassy relationship. Could tie into a future film with bats trying to reform him. How dare you make me think of this.


asianfrenzy

Now we Ned Red Hood and Bizarro.


AccessForward875

Who would the villain be?


cobrastrikes-2x

Black Mask’s corpse


RK3057

Ned Flanders


AccessForward875

Nah he already didily died


Baramos_

I don’t believe this is THE Artemis cause she’s in the flashback in JL shooting magic arrows.


MTWasHere

Artemis the Greek goddess vs Artemis of bana mighdall


Mn0h

The “redhead genocide” is real, and I support it. For too long have those pale faced freaks been massively over represented in media. Get them off my TV! I don’t want to see their 1% ass in every piece of media I consume. Replace them all! Shun every redhead to the background unless the story explicitly requires them to be have red hair!


BubahotepLives

Better red than dead!


Nova_Persona

?


Vord_Loldemort_7

What the fuck I hate everything


bored_hobo

Am I the only one seeing the axe bending against her wrist?


Tandril91

I’ve always loved the whole Amazonian lord and mythos and was hoping Wonder Woman’s films could explore on that. Really bummed that they don’t seem like they will, nor will they delve into the Olympian gods due to the fact they were all kinda killed off in the first scene they were mentioned.


not-so-radical

Something something ginger erasure go woke go broke /s


bermass86

For an axe that’s supposed to be magical and huge this one is really taken from Lotr basement


Robin_theboywonder7

Really...?

Because red heads are soulless evil demons who feast on your flesh


His-Endless-Rambles

It’s not that red heads are exclusively swapped for poc, it’s that red heads are hardly ever cast at all as ginger haired comic book characters, and it’s been going on a very long time. Charlie Cox and Ben Affleck as Matt Murdoch. Paul Rudd as Scott Lang. Marc McClure, Michael Landes, Justin Whalin, Aaron Ashmore, and Michael Cassidy as Jimmy Olsen. Gary Oldman, JK Simmons, and Ben McKenzie as Jim Gordon. Colton Haynes as Roy Harper. Kristin Kreuk as Lana Lang. Rachael Taylor as Patsy Walker. Paula Marshall as Iris West. Andy Mientus as Hartley Rathaway. Willem Dafoe and Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn. James Franco and Dane DeHan as Harry Osborn. Finn Wittrock as Guy Gardner. KJ Apa as Archie (until the fans complained enough for them to fix it). Savannah Welch as Barbara Gordon. Alan Ritchson as Hank Hall. Kim Basinger as Vicki Vale. Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibny. The list goes on.


Some-Dog9800

Funny how people only care about "redhead erasure" when it concerns black people


PryceCheck

/u/His-Endless-Rambles, username checks out. The Redhead rabbit hole goes deeper it seems.


Some-Dog9800

Because all the redheads are side characters and studios are too cowardly to cast colorblind for the main characters.


wisconsinking

Just for once I'd love to see a natural redhead/ginger get casted in a role (I'd love a DCEU of Poison Ivy but only if she's played by a natural redhead/ginger), I'd also love it if we got more diversity when race swapping. I like Catwoman how is race swapped in The Batman and the Harley Quinn show but if we get a DCEU version I think she should be Japanese, her outfit could even represent/pay homage to the culture (ninja themed) or maybe make her Native American or even Porto Rican.


mizzymichie

Because red heads are soulless gingers so obviously Black people should play them /s


Starro_the_janitor

Artemis Sr?


crossingcaelum

I think she’s just an Amazonian woman named after the Greek Goddess Artemis. I don’t think she’s supposed to be Artemis Crock


Some-Dog9800

That's not the Artemis we're talking about...
