    Mabye, but I think it’s just the angle. They have to mention John, Guy, and mabye Kyle in this piece.

    Interesting that a lot of the video promoting this movie on the Wonder Woman DVD had a fair amount of time on Alan Scott…I wonder if he’ll have a role in the movie? It seemed like more than a token measure for the first GL comic.

    The JSA could use a little love in these direct-to-videos, at least. Flash of Two Worlds would be a great choice for an adaptation.
