Uh...yeah. Hector Hammond. I know they are using big(and only) gun Sinestro. But shoehorning MODOK without chair as a character? Sorry, the look and concept is as dumb as said former, and at least Marvel gave their dumbass creation blaster bolts.
Hammond's an odd choice, I agree.
Their biggest problem is that their choices for antagonists are limited because they're setting up Hal's origin in this film. Sinestro can't be used as the antagonist yet because it's crucial to establish him as one of the good guys before his fall from grace. Carol can't become a Star Sapphire at this point because the Zamarons haven't been encountered. Atrocitus and Larfleeze are too recent and their involvement too heavily dependent on the War of Light and the emotional spectrum stories; same with Nekron and Black Hand to an extent.
Anyway, I'd have personally gone with the Manhunters, but I felt the same way about using Scarecrow for Batman Begins
and that turned out fairly well. Again, I'm more concerned about how the hell they're going to portray...
A lot will depend on how
Hammond is used, if they're going for a more traditional take on the character or the recent, creepy fanboy portrayal that's been used since "No Fear".
Oh my... Ms Waller is in the film? Another DCTV character crossing over. I'm actually looking forward to see if she can carry the presence the cartoon Waller had. We may have hated Amanda at times, but you had to admit she was a great foil for the JLU.
Hey now, Amanda Waller has been around since the eighties. Look up Suicide Squad - or even better, read it.
Yes, thank you John Ostrander for giving us one of DC's best supporting characters. And it's too bad CCH Pounder won't be reprising the role; her casting as Waller was another of Andrea Romano's best contributions to the DCAU.
