    The best I can say is, the Justice League film has helped maintain the visibility of Wonder Woman and has drawn more attention to Aquaman. I think an Aquaman film could succeed if DC understands who he is for film-goers: given his look, he's DC's Thor; i.e., he's the heart-throb for female fans. His particular powers don't matter. Female fans swoon over him the way they swoon over Hemsworth.

I'm not seeing it. If Jason Momoa was that much of a female draw, his Conan the Barbarian would not have been a complete flop.

    Her next film will probably sell even more. She's the breakaway star of DC, as Iron Man was for Marvel. Nobody (except me) expected Iron Man to be such a hit. (To me it was obvious that a genuinely powerful super-hero who could actually exist in the real world would clean up at the box office. Talk about your power fantasy! You have the armor, and the genius intellect, and the billionaire wealth, all of which are in reach of a Type A personality in our real world, if not right this minute, then, at most, 20 years from now.)

Well, let's not get carried away here. Iron Man is not a realistic superhero. There's a very good reason there are no super armors in the real world, and it's because it simply wouldn't protect your brain very well. Even the world's strongest helmet isn't going to prevent your brain from bouncing against your skull when you fall. That's why Wolverine's adamantium skull shouldn't help prevent him from getting a concussion. The Iron Man armor may prevent skin and bone breakage to an extent but it wouldn't prevent concussions. Now what would be within the realm of possibility is having Iron Man-like robots controlled remotely. They probably couldn't fly and/or land very well in a humanoid form and repulsor ray are of course made up, but well, drones are already a form of remote controlled robot that can fire missiles.
