Live footage of me clicking the image.
Hang on, what's so audacious? The wiggy "W" super-rainbows? Diana's new armor? Both of those things?
It looks like she fused her costume with Aquaman's.
But yeah, both posters we've seen have lethal doses of '80s in them.
I like the armor.

If your superhero poster makes anything from Rocketman (2019) look tame, that's audacity.

Well, clearly they are still concerned about using colors^^ Can't wait for this movie.
Also of note, the promotional campaign for WW 1984 won't begin until December.

How can they do a Supergirl origin without recycling too much of season 1 of the TV show? They could still lean into people's familiarity with Superman, so that if it's a recast and standalone from the Snyder ones they will just shrug and move on. But the show seemed to prop her up with a ton of supporting characters and monsters of the week to fight. Maybe do half a fish out of water thing and half a cosmic threat Superman can't handle alone (no League, no crossovers anymore anytime soon).
Putting aside that the majority of the audience has most likely not seen the shows, there is a lot you can change about her origin. For starters, having more trouble with adjusting to human society.
Turn her into an Earth-Born Angel?
If she's gonna be a teenager in the movie, that might already be different enough. Cuz TV show Kara has had years to adjust to Earth, but this means movie!Kara would have just reached Earth and has to struggle to adjust to it. Also means that wound of losing her home planet is really fresh.

Black Adam has a director.
Huh. He's also directing Dwayne Johnson in Jungle Cruise, which is interesting.
So we really are just straight up giving Black Adam his own movie without meeting with his nemesis first.
Here's hoping Dwayne plays a good Anti-Hero/Anti-Villain. (Raises goblet)
Huh, so will this be Dwayne Johnson's first iconic role as an action star? You know, his T-800, his Rocky Balboa, his John McClaine. I like him as an actor but he kinda lacked that role everyone could associate with him. Unless you count Mau'i.
Deadline tweeted that Liam Neeson has joined Black Adam as Hawkman but there link leads to an article about him apologizing about hunting down black men.
Hmm. Hawkman makes sense, considering both him and Black Adam are from Egypt, but Liam Neeson certainly doesn't make sense. Unless he's playing the modern version of Hawkman, but even then, I think he would be too old.
Also, are they going more with the JSA storyline Black Reign? Because that involved both Black Adam and Hawkman and was generally considered one of the best Black Adam storylines in modern day.
Hollywood does still enjoy casting white guys as Egyptians even to this day.
To be fair, the Egyptians of yore didn't quite look the Egyptians of today… They probably didn't look like Liam Neeson though…
Its more okay if he's modern day Hawkman cause that's a reincarnation.
But if Liam is Egyptian past Hawkman then there's an issue there.
Can someone provide the link for this news? I haven't been able to find anything on it and I'm starting to think it might just be rumor.
Someone on Twitter seem to confirm that the Liam Neeson part is untrue and started by a parody account

Based on what I've read and seen the ancient Egyptians actually do look a lot like the ones of modern day. There's definitely been some admixture due to Arabization but historical Egypt was fairly diverse to begin with, to the point of having a Nubian dynasty who were seen as stalwart defenders of native Egypt against the barbarous foreign Assyrians. If they want a historic character for Hawkman then Europeans wouldn't fit the bill with the exception of the Greeks.

Nobody else is reporting on the Liam Neeson thing, so I'm gonna say it's false. It sounds more than likely it was someone making a joke, since the director has worked with Neeson on several other films.
Dwayne Johnson confirms the director.
