How the hell did Aquaman went from being the butt of jokes to Breakout...

DC/WB excepted the general audience would’ve love the flash & cyborg
Normies ended up hating flash & cyborg
But Aquaman ended up as Normies favorte character from justice league
How the hell did Aquaman went from being the butt of jokes to Breakout character from justice league?

It doesn’t help that Aquaman was fun. cyborg was emo as fuck. flash was very gay

Leo Wright

Buff as shit manly man
Is the most badass looking star in current Hollywood
Gets role of a character that everyone always assumed was a dumb fucking lame-o but no one had ever read any of his comics to realize he's actually pretty cool
People also don't know enough about him to be upset at any changes, while being well aware of how retarded the other characters act and look
If you have to actually ask why, you're probably brain damaged.

LEGO Aquaman would beat it at this rate

I only know Aquaman from "talks to fish" jokes and defensive portrayals that go out of their way to sell him as some kind of badass.

Julian Torres

In short.. Flash and Cyborg are a faggot and a nigger. They managed to cast someone worse and less likable than the TV show Flash, who already has a strong following. And Cyborg is largely remembered by the target audience from the Teen Titans LET'S HIT THOSE SHOWERS version, which has since been bastardized by TTGO, and the version they ended up with is a mopey, angsty asshat who looks and feels out of place in a movie that's already at odds with itself due to reshoots and director changes part-way through production.

Tyler Gutierrez

well he did get repeatedly one-shotted like a little girl. incidentally if nothing else it's nice to see them just let Superman do his thing being Superman and not get his ass kicked or go mad with power or get cucked by Batman or whatever. it's weird how rarely that happens.

Asher Watson

Cyborg was actually pretty popular, judging from my normie friends. Aquachad had the least importance to the plot, yet was totally badass in attitude. Superman finally acted like fucking Superman and got to kick ass in style for the first time. Wonder Woman was kind of OK.

Meanwhile, Flash is a milquetoast pussy played by a hipster faggot and Affleck's Fatman is just plain boring except for one scene.

Because a majority of people enjoy Teen Titans Cyborg and DCAU Flash both of which are likable and great characters

Hudson Brown

Because most people only think of Aquaman from Super Friends, and the truth is that Aquaman is pretty badass depending on who the writer was. I think the real jokes started with Family Guy making Aquaman seem like he was incapable to stopping anything that wasn't in the water, and Robot Chicken kept this joke going. But Aquaman would still be super powered even on land, and most people don't look at it like that. This may have been many normalfags first introduction to Aquaman as an actual super powered being.

Even if you don't power him up to Namor levels, by necessity he'd have to be fuck-off strong and tough to swim to the bottom of the ocean and back. The pressure, the temperature, not to mention being raised as a feral kid by dolphins and spending years fighting cosmic assholes alongside the JLA and fighting off threats to Atlantis and challenges to his throne, I mean how many times has he been deposed and reconquered Atlantis? Basically every time he steps out the door?
He's Conan with fish talking. Take away the fish talking, he's still going to kick your ass.

Daniel Diaz
Daniel Diaz

Really good.

He was very likeable and it was easy to root for him. Flash was awful. They should have just tapped the WB Flash to reprise his role in JL. Cyborg was working pretty well, but his emo-shtick lasted too long. Wonder woman is an odd case. She doesn't require a lot of acting, but that may be because the other actors are carrying for her. However, it was nice to see them change by the end of the movie. Wonder woman was more extroverted and Flash was the same. I really wish that Flash wasn't such a huge faggot though nor that they made him Jewish. He doesn't need any of that shit. Batman was ok. Bale was the last good one, but Afleck does work as a Batman well past his prime. Trying to change his casting now, would be really retarded. Superman was presented much better in the movie outside of his intro where he tried to kill everyone and the incredibly wooden dialogue he had with Louis in Smallville. Aquaman was easily the best new character there.

If I could redo it, I would just tie the WB Flash into JL so that his backstory isn't required and then spend more time on Aquaman and Atlantis.

This is very true. DCAU Flash is awesome. Cyborg has a big following from his original Teen Titans run and he's more popular with kids thanks to TTGO.

I'm amazed no one is stating he has popularity due to the Actor.
The sheer amount of Jason Momoa fauning leads me to believe they just want puddleman to take care of their undies.

I mean, don't get me wrong, fair.
Plus as another user said, Nice guy playing jolly dude.

As a side note, from what I've seen of the character in the new comics, he's not too bad in terms of interesting levels either.

Flash was a huge reason why the movie had tonal whiplash.

As for Cyborg, I had to loudly bring up the fact that his character was the blandest and most boring part of that movie before other people, including people not among the people I watched with, started talking about it. I think they were afraid of being called racist.

Having to power him up to Namor levels.
Aquaman literally has beaten him in a fight.

Ryder Brown
Ryder Brown

You mean the CW one?
Yes. I meant CW Flash. The show managed to bring in a lot of people that would never have watched the old jla cartoons or read the comics. It would have been such a no-brainer to bring in Grant Gustin as the Flash again. He already has a ton of followers and he isn't fucking annoying nor is he a gay attention whore.

He knows how to act and he has both SG:A fans and GoT fans following him. He was a no-brainer as to why he's so popular. He looked like he was having fun too. I just wish that Flash had gotten the same treatment.

Cyborg was ok, but his fans are really only going to know him from TT and TTGO. He was a bit too emo for my liking. I understand the angle they're writing him from, but I think he should have been a bit more extroverted before the end of the movie in a way similar to his other appearances that most would know him from.

Gal Gaddot can't act, but the requirement for WW is so low that it really doesn't matter. She was fine in that regard. Batman looked old and fat, which makes sense in-universe given how out of his prime he is. I'm almost fully expecting a Terry to show up soon given how out of it, he's looking. Superman was good past his initial resurrection. His fight with Flash was played very well and got a reaction out of the crowds that I was with. He worked well with Batman, but it felt a bit jarring considering how BvS ended. I don't remember Supes still being that pissed at him after the retardation that was "Martha".

Flash was a huge reason why the movie had tonal whiplash

Flash is probably most remembered for his jla run outside of the cw Flash, where he was played for laughs. Of course, jla Flash was Wally and CW was Barry. JL movie flash was nothing like Barry though and it seemed like he was trying to channel some Wally, but being terrible at it. In the end, I feel that pulling CW Flash would have been the better choice. He's straight-edged and doesn't cause any controversy like movie flash. He also has more experience with the character, so he would have an easier time portraying Barry.

I fucking blame Superfriends for that "Aquaman is a shit hero" jokes. Seriously..dude is the king of the sea. You know how large is kingdom is? 70% of the Earth. Dude is as strong as Superman (after all, living in the bottom of the ocean with all that pressure on the body and stuff) or possibly even stronger. Had led the JLA before (Detroit-era JLA but still counts)…and he's a damn joke?

Evan Sullivan

The only reason WW was decent was because she had an amazing supporting actor to cover up for her. IIRC, the director of that movie fucking hates her, but has to use Gal since she's a Snyder pick

Leo Green

Aquaman literally beat him in a fight
no, he literally beat him in a popularity contest. Those fights were all based on 1-800 number votes and because of JLA Aquaman was and still is the much more popular Atlantean, but Namor outclasses him a lot in terms of power level, shit Namor is close to Black Bolt tier power levels.

Easton Bennett
Easton Bennett

If the personification of girl power wasn't enough, then the depiction of pagan gods and deities surely does. Most Muslim contries censor or alter that, for example, Injustice Gods Among Us was retitled "Injustice: The Almighty Among Us". Can't see them working around WW

Nicholas Howard
Nicholas Howard

Its ironic because while I found him likable enough, you could make the argument he is the most redundant member of the cast, since he isn't as strong as Superman and Wonder Woman, never makes use of his aquatic powers except to save the JL in Gotham City and doesn't do anything special power-wise. The Flash and Cyborg were annoying, but at least their powerset was useful.

It hurt at first… But nobody needs to know about it

Zachary Kelly

Still, Aquaman can beat Namor. Considering that Aquaman fights and wins against Cthulhu on an annual basis and punched Charon and RUNS HIM OVER with his own boat, beats up Cerberus, marches straight to Hades so he can grab Poseidon out of Hades.

Wyatt Reed

Not really. Shitholes like Afghanistan are even more savage, but then again Afghanistan is not even a proper country. I'm more inclined to believe that the government makes a halfhearted show of censoring the evil Jewish propaganda but then just ignores anyone they catch watching the uncensored version. The Saudis really don't give a shit so long as they get to defecate on the faces of Instagram models and the clerics are happy.

Adrian Jackson

DC already has this weird ass worry about audiences being unable to differentiate between multiple versions of the same character at once. The CW isn't allowed to use characters entirely on DC's whim. The fact that we actually got to see Superman in Supergirl was incredibly surprising to me. Flash is the only character that got by this, because they okayed the Flash show before they ever had plans to put Flash in a movie.
