    Not to compare them to Wendy and Marv, but Batman and Robin didn't have powers either. :)

    I preferred them, because:

    A. They were there first and that was what I was accustomed to before the Twins came around with their idiotic monkey

    and

    B. I used to run around in a fake cape just like Marvin so I suppose I identified with that and would have done anything to be in his shoes

    and

    C. As mentioned above, Wendy was pretty darn cute and Jayna never did it for me

    Lastly, Wonder Twins? A little full of yourselves, maybe? The best idea for transportation they could come up with was an eagle carrying the monkey holding a pail of water. I wonder why they were so stupid. Thank goodness Firestorm and Cyborg came along.

    OK, I am fully onboard. It appears this movie could be on par with Wonder Woman. It looks pretty bad-ass.

    I hate trailers that give so much away. Why would you ever give such a cool chase scene away? Freaking stupid.

    On the bright side, it does look like a good movie.

    Well, it is Aquaman so they have some work to do. Aquaman sucks. He's like Scooter of the Muppet Babies. (misquoted from TBBT)

    I mean it will still look cool in the movie right? The quality of the trailer looks better than I expected. I expected a CGI mess like JL.

    Well, when I realized what was happening, I stopped watching, because it looked like they were going all the way to resolution. And, sure, it'll look cool, but I don't want the "2nd time I watched this movie" feeling the FIRST time I watch it.

    You aren't wrong. Still, the rest of the trailer was cool, and just a snippet of the chase scene would have sufficed.

    Looks terrific. Aquaman was always one of my favorites. Don't know why. Maybe it's my fascination with the ocean.

    Not me, I was a Namor fan. Who, by the way, would kick your Aquaman's tail.:)

    If ever there was a superhero who would’ve had a tail, it would’ve been aquaman. And yes Jamir would’ve kicked aquamans butt. But maybe not this aquaman.

    I purposefully didn't read any reviews, ignored anyone talking about this movie ahead of time, and didn't even check Rotten Tomato. I wanted to see this movie based on its own merits. My highest praise? Well, it's better than Suicide Squad and BvS. If it had stuck with dudebro Momoa being dudebro Aquaman, it could have been rollicking good fun. Instead...damn. I'm not going to dissect it right now.
