‘Batman vs. Superman’ Rumors: No Martian Manhunter, Aquaman, & More!

Superman Martian Manhunter JL Batman vs. Superman Rumors: No Martian Manhunter, Aquaman, & More!

Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel sequel – still known as Batman vs. Superman, until the world is told differently – is set to begin filming in Michigan this February, barely a month away. The only pieces of confirmed information about the film are new details about the shoot in Detroit and the reported $131 million production budget attached to – presumably – the filming in that state.

As always, the rumors are more fun – whether any of them end up to be true or not – and just in the last few weeks alone we’ve seen a whole new spate of them as DC and Warner Bros. get ready to establish their own Cinematic Universe. Is Denzel Washington involved? If so, will he play Lex Luthor? The Green Lantern? Or is Dwayne Johnson playing GL? How big of a role will Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman have?

And if potential Justice League members like Wonder Woman and Green Lantern are making some kind of appearance, what about some of the other DC characters who are major JL members, like Aquaman and Martian Manhunter? The inclusion of Lex Luthor appears to be a lock, but what about the identity of a suspected second villain? Batman on Film has addressed a slew of Batman vs. Superman questions and rumors, and while many of BoF‘s answers are really just opinion and speculation, some of the information sounds fairly legitimate and intriguing.

For instance, is Lex Luthor really in the film, and who is the additional villain? According to BoF’s Jett Ramey (framed as a response to readers’ questions):

Yes. And sorry, I’m not at liberty to reveal the ID of the other villain at this time…but the character is highly rumored to be in the film.

What about the casting of Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa? Will he play Martian Manhunter or (a miscast) Aquaman? According to Jett:

Nope and nope. Neither of those characters are in this film.

BoF also denies that any Bat-villains will make an appearance. From the sound of it, that’s about it for the hard information. The film’s reboot of Batman, the rumored involvement of the John Stewart Green Lantern and the confirmation of Wonder Woman’s role has led some fans to wonder how much room is left over for Superman and if this Man of Steel follow-up is a Justice League movie in disguise. BoF responds to this particular question:

Based on all my intel…NOPE. It’s a Superman film – a Superman film that just so happens to include Batman and Wonder Woman – but a Superman film nonetheless.

BoF has additional insight on other issues, such as the size of Wonder Woman’s role in Batman vs. Superman “on par with Scarlett Johansson’s first appearance as Black Widow in IRON MAN 2.”  There is also a rather novel take on WW’s ancestry – which is complete and utter speculation, but interesting to note:

…the “Amazons” of this cinematic DCU will be descendants of those “ancient Kryptonians” who attempted to set up Kryptonian outposts throughout spacedom thousands and thousands of years ago. Furthermore, I say that Wonder Woman will be powered-down, if you will, relative to Superman because these Amazons have evolved and adapted to living on Earth for hundreds of centuries.

Probably a stretch, but given screenwriter David S. Goyer’s extensive tweaking of the traditional Krypton mythology, it’s at least plausible. BoF goes on to answer other fan questions, such as which source comics would inform Ben Affleck’s Batsuit – they mention the Kingdom Come and Batman Beyond suits as possible inspiration (we’ve heard differently, and should point out that Batman on Film loves Batman Beyond and turned out to be off-based when predicting that the beloved futuristic animated series would serve as a jumping off point for DC’s Batman reboot).

Batman vs. Superman Batman Drones and Robin Confirmed Batman vs. Superman Rumors: No Martian Manhunter, Aquaman, & More!

So could Jason Momoa be playing Doomsday, after all? There is no hard proof, but this new information is a strong clue that this could be the case. And what about the notion of Batman controlling drones from the BatcaveBoF is all for it (even if the reader wondered if it could be a “rip-off” of the Iron Man series), since Batman is usually always a step ahead of everyone; hence, the use of bat-drones could form his method of dealing with Superman – the need for which he would have foreseen.

Several of BoF’s other reader questions had to do with the likelihood of Ben Affleck taking on solo Bat-films after Batman vs. Superman, and just how many films he might be contracted to appear in. There is no way to know the details on these points, but both answers could depend on the success of BvS. Given the level of fan anticipation involved – and this before any significant portion of the film has been shot – the film’s success is nearly a given, and the more we hear about Affleck’s approach to and respect for the role, the more it sounds like Affleck is in this for the long haul.

What do think about this Batman vs. Superman news, Screen Ranters? Should Martian Manhunter or Aquaman be included? Are bat-drones a good idea? Sound off in the comments!


Man of Steel 2/Batman vs. Superman hits theaters July 17th, 2015.

  1. Hope it’s not a rip off from Ironman 2.

    • I can’t even remember what Iron Man 2 was about. Did it have Black Widow and Nick Fury or am I just getting it mixed up with The Avengers?

      • Ah just got to that part of the article aha!

        • Whiplash wanted revenge because Stark “stole” his dad’s ideas or something.

          All I remember is that Sam Rockwell stole the show as Justin Hammer.

          • That scene of him on the race track was pretty cool, I definitely remember that. Though I can’t say I remember Rockwell in the movie, didn’t even know he was in it. It was almost 4 years ago and haven’t seen it since aha.

      • Yes, it did. It’s not surprising you’re getting it mixed up seeing as how IM2 was just one big commercial for The Avengers.

        As for the article, not sure how I feel about Amazons being descendants of Kryptonians, but maybe it could work. I kind of prefer them being a completely separate species, but we’ll see.

        • After thousands of years, and probably integrated a few humans as mates over the years, they basically would be a separate species. A little more of an offshoot species, but probably only similar in appearance and some basic powers.

          Still, wondering if, and how well, they could integrate the mythology aspects of the Amazons, of if they’ll just skip over that completely.

  2. @ ColdSc

    Yes Black Widow was introduced in Ironman 2 & Nick Fury was had a role in it.

  3. Well, I’m glad there might not be MM or Aquaman because Aquaman needs a bigger debut than just a brief cameo and MM can easily be saved for much later.

    The Amazon thing sounds intriguing, if not obvious. I’m sure someone on the comments section called that one ages ago.

    I’m still thinking Momoa could be Lobo but only because he’d have the look, any other big Superman villains would be kinda wasted in this film from what we know so far and I could see Superman’s appearance somehow coming onto Lobo’s radar and he travels to Earth to collect a bounty on him.

    All I know is that I’d love to see Mark Strong back as Sinestro at some point and Frank Welker providing Doomsday’s vocals like he has for so many other movie villains (his turn voicing Goro in the Mortal Kombat movie was memorable and pretty freakin’ cool).

    • I can’t agree more about mark strong, that movie was bad but I think the cast was great (Ryan Reynolds was a good Hal Jorden IMO), and it kills me that we’ll lose the perfect sinestro cause the writers f’ed up :(

      • I wouldn’t be surprised if they brought Mark Strong back as well as Ryan Reynolds, I found they both did a great job. Though Mark Strong has been rumored for Luthor some time ago so who knows.

      • Not just the writers fouled up, so did all the fans who criticized so much that DC turned tail and ran on GL#2, picked up their marbles and went home. It was the critical fans who went overboard and jumped on the bandwagon so viciously that did in what could have been one of Dc ‘s biggest money-making franchises. These fans should all be ashamed. I myself liked GL#1, despite some admitted flaws. We need to do GL#2, maybe making it Hal Jordan/Green Lantern and Barry Allen/Flash against Sinestro and professor Zoom (the Reverse-Flash). And we need to do it now.

        • I didn’t get to see the Green Lantern movie until over a year after it had released at cinemas and didn’t know there was any hate towards it until I expressed my own disappointment at how poor the movie turned out to be and found out that others shared a similar opinion (although I thought the actors did great considering they had such crap to work with as far as a bad script, terrible dialogue and plot stuffed more than a Christmas turkey).

          I liked Reynolds as Hal but would prefer him to stick to Deadpool, that role suits him more.

          • If they had not tried to shove lame humor to the forefront with dumb comments, and had just kept Hal/Reynolds serious, it would have made a vast improvement right there. This should not have been like Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure with power rings or anything. Leave the bulk of the humor to comedians, and not plastered all over our hero movies, so that it is hard to take our heroes seriously when they are fighting monster menaces and saving the Earth from evil super-powered baddies.

        • Uhmm no…

      • Yeah, I think DC should bring back the Ryan Reynolds Hal Jordan for this shared universe that MoS launched. Even though GL had a lot of flaws as a movie, it laid down the complex Green Lantern universe/backstory pretty well. So to scratch all of that progress just because of a mediocre film I think is throwing out the baby with the bath water. Plus, I still think it’s kind of early for a GL reboot. Would love to see a GL2 with new writers and director (but same cast).

        • Exactly on the mark, Levi. You are one of the ones who “gets it”; thank you!
          (Just make Hal ore serious!!)

          • “more”, not “ore”. Sorry.

    • I’m a huge Welker Fan-boy so I have no arguments with you on this point, lol.

  4. The Amazonian theory is interesting and I think has been thrown around in the comment sections of Screen Rant (can’t remember who suggested the idea though). The Amazonians being descendants of the Kryptonians seems like a fantastic idea. Plus Wonder Woman not being as powerful as Kal El suggests maybe she won’t fly? Her race has been on Earth for quite some time so maybe the atmosphere won’t have the same affect on them. Ugh so many questions! Just one year and a half to go!

    • I was pushing this idea on many sites(including this one) and really hope it will be true in the end of the day =) After reading Pre-MoS comic it just screams as the most logical way.

    • @ColdSc Sounds like they took that idea from Hancock *sigh* :/

  5. wonder women should be tied to Greek mythology there is already a super girl and a power girl don’t turn wonder women, or the amazons, into them. also martian man hunter and aqua man better be part of the original league leave cyborg for a titans film

    • The Amazons could still have ties to Greek Mythology. The Greeks would have seen them to be like gods so they build the mythology around their superfeats. Remember Jor-El said Kryptonians on Earth would be like gods.

        • That dude is an alien himself. He sorta looks like one too

      • Agree 100%

  6. I kind of like this take on the Amazonians. Maybe not so much them being Kryptonian ancestors, but the idea of them being aliens who assimilated to Earth. This makes sense. Does anyone know what race Mon-El is?

    • daxamite

  7. Please don’t trust site, they’ve got a lot things wrong already.

  8. Michael Ironside for the voice of Darkseid aswell Michael Dorn as Kalibak.

  9. As long as Wonder Woman is already established in this universe. Like Bat-Man she needs to know who and what she is. Wonder Woman has to be proud of strength.

  10. “…the “Amazons” of this cinematic DCU will be descendants of those “ancient Kryptonians” who attempted to set up Kryptonian outposts”

    ^^^Did I read that right? Is this information about Wonder Woman speculation or close to being fact? If so, this will change everything we know about Wonder Woman. WOW

  11. Sounds on par of what I thought the background of Wonder Woman would be and her ancestry from reading the prequel comic book of man of steel. Since it’s a grounded story it would make a lot of sense that she is from kryptonian heritage which means there won’t be any Greek Gods running around slapping Wonder Woman in the face.

    • There could still be greek gods… they’d just be a purer strain of kyrptonian perhaps?

      The idea that Mythological “Gods” were just highly advanced aliens has always been a mythos take that fascinates me, but is rarely done “right”.

    • Yay! I am not the only one, people should really read those one shots(prety sure they’ll release more on all characters at some point)

  12. I find the Amazonian/Kryptonian connection to be silly really but i’ll wait for film for full judgement.

    • There was a list of potential film names, unfortunately I didn’t see World’s Finest anywhere. From what I remember anyway.

  13. Who’s this Jett anyway? Other than someone who works at ‘Batman in Film’.

    • Joan Jett of the Runaways????

  14. Ughh! Seriously?? Wonder Woman descendent of ancient Kryptonians?? That’s the stupidest idea ever. DC is going to screw WW over so hard it’s not even funny. Man I hate the DCCU… They are already messing WW by introducing her into the disaster waiting to happen instead of giving her her own movie. Ughh.

    • Figured President Lex Luthor would have better things to do =/ aha.

    • you hat the DCCU? there isn’t even DCCU yet, it’s only 1 film.
      i disagree that MOS2 is a disaster waiting to happen, i agree with amazons being descendants of kryptonians being stupid though

  15. So if we are to believe the source quoted on this website, Wonder Woman will be a Kryptonian but she will be severely powered down because her body has soaked up the sun’s radiation over several thousand years thus making her more human than Krytonian.

    LOL ok got it…

    • Or mated with human beings so that each child would only be half Kryptonian? Though there WAS that artificial life thingy in the ship so they may have been spawning beings from there, which can explain why they’re only women.

      • Nope, that part of the ship hasn’t been used. It’s an important plot point in Man of Steel. It’s Zod that wants to use it to bring back the kryptonian people. And the ship remained under ice until it was discovered in our days.
        I think that Kara Zor-El(being the only kryptonian that survived) will somehow found this “community” or something. She’ll create the amazons. Obviously she would have to have children with a human… so that would maybe explain the loss of power.
        Don’t know… my theory.

  16. So maybe it was WW in the spaceship pod nd not Supergirl.

    • If this rumor turns out true, that’s what I’m thinking.

      • Whoops…not WW herself, but the ancestor of the Amazonians.

  17. Mamoa will probably play vandal savage who will be the other villain,nd the rock will probably be cyborg since there are so many hints in mos nd he is the obvious looks the part,but they probably will recast gl cuz they changed carol ferris in mos(its no longer Blake lively its that soldier)

    • *Momoa

    • Now that I think about it, Vandal Savage doesn’t seem too out there. Maybe a ‘half Kryptonian’ from centuries ago who was able to live a long life by so and so reason. I don’t know nearly enough the speculate the rest aha.

    • Well, I’m pretty sure they named her Farris in MOS, not Ferris. So Lively could still return as Carol FERRIS.

  18. I hope Aquaman and Martian Manhunter are at least in the Justice league movie. So I guess Cyborg and Flash are in Mos2.

    The other villain must be Doomsday because he has been heavily rumored more than Metallo or any other villain. I was hoping they would save him but I guess its better than having Lex Luthor and the Toyman that would suck and doom the movie. I know its not Lobo because that wouldn’t make sense who would hire him from space.

    I cant wait till they announce other films they are planning. WB/DC is so tight lipped while Sony and Fox are already talking about Spiderman 4,5, and 6, and Xmen Apocalypse and Fantastic Four crossovers.

    • Well, considering Marvel is already past their first big team-up film, and Fox has Wolverine (a guaranteed goldmine they could put in just about anything,) and DC is just now getting it’s toe in the water, what do you expect?

      Anyway, I highly doubt Cyborg makes it into the League. From what I hear, the team tops out at five. Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, are going in no doubt. Green Lantern is arguably the next one on deck for a movie. That essentially leaves one spot open and about four people you could legit choose.

      Flash, Martian Manhunter, Aquaman, and Cyborg. Since Flash and Green Lantern have always had chemistry, he’s got the pole position, since Cyborg’s biggest gift (intellect/technology) can easily be taken over by Batman being on the team. Manhunter is fun, but not really needed. Aquaman is the wildcard in all this. He’s probably as worthy as Lantern or Flash, and doesn’t have a bad taste in the mouths of fans from a past failed film. However, I would think The King of Atlantis would have a pretty big event tied to him, which is why I see him coming in around the time the actual Justice League film is produced and playing a huge role in things going forward. Maybe not as an actual team member, but a recurring ally.

      • What’s your justification for saying, “Manhunter is fun, but not really needed”

        How do you define “need”?

        He is the only one with telekinetic powers, desolidification and shape changing so I would say he is the most unique of the 7.

  19. Not sure about the tweak to the Wonder Woman origin. I don’t really have a problem with it, but I don’t think wonder woman needs to be powered down. The ancient kryptonians who are atlantians, they could be powered down. But I keep thinking back to the boxes Batman had on every league member’s weaknesses. He had nothing for WW. I like that. She’s one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful, of DC’s superheroes. Why would they want to power her down ??

    • I’m grabbing this from Justice League Doom but didn’t Batman have a drug of sort to take down Wonder Woman? One that Cheetah used to take her down.

      • the empty WW case is new 52, so it’s pretty new

          • So basically a female General Zod?

            Anyway, I think the point of powering her down is so that she’s vulnerable. Every hero needs a weakness.

            Batman, for all his greatness, is still just a man. He can be beaten and he can be killed.

            Superman, obviously Kryptonite. Then there’s magic and burning out his energy reserves.

            The DC Wikia stated before Flashpoint she had a vulnerability to piercing weapons. That’s at least something. Maybe tie her weakness to her bracelets? Without them, she’ll begin to lose energy in much the same way Kal needs to be in the sun to fight? Just ideas.

            Alternatively, a powered-down version may be wanted simply because, whether people like it or not either Superman or Batman is going to be the actual leader of The League. With Batman it’s inevitable, but Superman kind of needs to be the strongest person on his team. Batman brings the brains, Superman is the muscle, and I always saw Wonder Woman as the “fire” of the team. She something of a hot-head in the heat of battle which is good and bad, depending.

    • I would have to list Superman, Martian Manhunter, Mon-el, Ultra Boy, and Green Lantern as the most powerful DC heroes in my opinion, and maybe also Doctor Fate. The Flash would probably be pretty high up on the list in the next tier. I don’t know, maybe Metamorpho or Spectre for honorable mention?

      • I do think WW could take all of them.

        Superman and her is a pretty tough one to decide. I think they have the same level of strength. But WW is trained in combat. And Atlantians do have some magic that can hurt superman. Martian Manhunter definitely is kick ass. But that whole fire thing is a real deal breaker. Its too simple. Doctor Fate is pretty powerful, but i think he would still be taken down. Didn’t mon-el have a weakness for another metal…not kryptonite…but something else? He’s essentially a superman analogue. But there is a weakness i cant remember. Ultra man has a weakness too. Not too sure about the Legion Superheros, but they both have a weakness. The Flash is pretty high up on the list, but for a guy that can think really fast…he does get caught out quite often. Superman could touch him when he predicted his movement. Just a single punch, even a lucky shot frm WW could end flash.

        • It’s led. Daximites (I think it’s spelled like that,) can’t go near led. Even being near it is just about fatal to one.

          As for Ultra-Man it’s Yellow Sunlight. With that said, I can’t imagine Wonder Woman being able to face off with Doomsday. Difference between Wonder Woman and Superman, if I’m guessing this right, is that Superman has an unlimited potential for power with a Blue or Yellow sun.

          Wonder Woman has a set maximum, I think. A point where she simply can’t surpass her limits, while Superman doesn’t have limits. That’s just speculation, but I think it holds some merit.

          • Superman DOES have limits, he however seldom if ever pushes to that edge for fear of the potential devastation it could unleash.

            The only being I’m aware of in either the DC or Marvel universe without a supposed ceiling (at least in strength) is Hulk. Hulk is fueled by rage and if he can continue to build rage so will his strength.

            Now in a battle between Hulk and Supes that has always been an argument for the ages that I’m not interested in picking up here. :)

  20. Seems toooo early to use Doomsday but he is heavily rumored…I guess they want to save Darkseid and Braniac for later.

    And I don’t like this grounded take on WW. Just stretch the rules a bit; it’ll save them a hell of a lot of trouble later on.

  21. Why would Momoa be miscast as aquaman? I think he would be a fine choice, he’s got the body and the mystique all he needs is some Blond hair dye and hes good to go. I hope the rock is in this film but I would rather see him play martian manhunter then Green lantern. Denzil doesn’t seem right for any role, He could pull off a lex luthor but i just don’t see him as Green Lantern

    • Especially since we need that Green Lantern to be Hal Jordan. It’s way too early to feature John Stewert as the main Lantern. Maybe later…..

      • I wouldn’t say it’s too early. Heck, most people I know, only remember Stewart as Lantern. Didn’t even know who Jordan was til I told them, and honestly, I think most people would prefer Stewart. Plus, it would add a little diversity to The League.

  22. As long as Aquaman will be included in the team up of Justice League members I will be ok. He better be on roster though. I’d love to see Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) to be Aquaman. Jason Mamoa should be a Superman villian, and I think the Rock should be Martian Manhunter. His presence would demand respect.

    • Did you read the article? No aquaman, No Martian Manhunter. It will be just the Trinity

  23. I like the amazonian/kryptonian descendants idea, works more I guess logically in film than pure greek myth.
    other villain is probably doomsday.

    • It’s interesting and weird at the same time. So no Greek Gods? I would like to see that the Greek mythology exist in the MOS universe. It pretty much change about who Wonder Woman is, especially with Amazon. Though I’m still going to see the movie.

      • Could be done, but the gods are just the ancient krypts who discover tech for immortality and use it to stay alive and govern their mortal but powerful offspring.

  24. What, no Atom? If Marvel can have Ant-man, DC should be able to have The Atom. And put Martian Manhunter and Hawkman in there, also. And let’s roll a Doctor Fate and Hourman team-up movie, maybe against someone like Time Commander.
    Back on the JLA front, how about Darkseid and Doomsday? And Brainiac against Superman?

    • I find Darkseid too big of a villain right now, but I would be down for Brainiac slowly building up to being the main villain in a Justice League film.

    • “What, no Atom? If Marvel can have Ant-man, DC should be able to have The Atom.”

      And look who Marvel did before we ever even heard about an Ant-Man film. Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, etc. Marvel got it’s popular guys out there before they went to the B-List so that they could sell on the Marvel name first and the character second. DC isn’t in that position at the moment. They haven’t gotten their big guys out first. Let’s see how they do with Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman before we start branching out.

  25. This sounds good and makes sense. When this movie drops not a lot of people gonna remember all these rumors.

    • That’s true, I don’t even remember any of the rumors before Man of Steel and Dark Knight Rises released.

      • I remember the rumours before TDKR but that’s only because I read Batman-News daily for 15 months, from pre-production until the night before the UK release (July 21st 2012) and also a pretty near-perfect memory.

        Someone put two and two together when they cast a young girl that looked exactly like Marion Cotillard and predicted she’d be Talia al Ghul and for over a year, Nolan’s camp denied she’d be Talia and claimed she’d be Miranda Tate instead (turns out, both were right, strange how the Batman nerds like myself didn’t seem to care about the bait and switch while Star Trek nerds get their panties in a twist because JJ Abrams and crew did the same thing with the Khan rumour).

        There were more but people wondered especially why they used a lot of fake snow in areas of LA.

  26. I think it would be really cool if the Amazons were from a planet in the same system as Krypton that was always at war with it and after Krypton defeated them they destroyed their planet. Only a small group of survivors escaped and took refuge on a hidden island that they called Themascara. That way, Wonder Woman’s suit could be battle armour, similar to Superman’s.

  27. I’m worried about Wonder Woman being powered down, she is one of the strongest characters in DC that can take on Superman. Interesting as it might sound about the Amazonian are descendants to the ancient Kryptonian thousand years ago, I wonder what it means to Wonder Woman when in her origin she was sculpted from clay? Does the Greek Gods exist?

    • No, as I see it,it’s all but impossible to inject “Gods” of any kind in this Nolan universe. And yes, she will be powered down and treated like the resident nanny of the Justice League. I wonder if they will give her a truly big mission like getting cocoa for Batman.

      • Well it’s not really the “Nolan Universe” if you’re being serious about it. Sure it’ll be hard to incorporate the Greek mythology in the MOS universe, but taken that part out really changes who the Amazon are.

      • @Black Pegasus

        It won’t be that huge a leap.

        Ancient Aliens Theory, Amazonians somehow losing some of their Kryptonian power (tying in with them taking a gene from their DNA and having no males born for the same reason, to prevent a war-like disaster that may have happened to them before, forcing them to make the decision to be female-only yet still without as much power as they should have, just in case someone goes rogue?).

        I just kicked a massive hole through your worrisome thoughts so you can rest easy and wait until they officially announce something.

    • I think you can safely “power her down” only in that she doesn’t have x-ray vision, laser eyes etc she is basically really strong and can fly.

  28. Yes I so called it, been saying it about wonder woman’s ancestry for months now on these boards. One empty pod in the seed ship, the comic book that led to MoS showing the survivor being Kara (superman’s cousin is comics continuity). She set off and started a hybrid race of kryptonian/humans. Kryptonian tech hiding the island. Heck as I’ve said before aquaman and his people could easily be just a breakoff population that chose underwater as their home as opposed to the island.

    • Greek gods/Roman gods (Ares is Roman after all, not Greek yet most of Diana’s people worship Greek gods…strange that) = Ancient Astronaut Theory and Atlantis = Aquatic Ape Theory perhaps?

      Ooo, now we’re opening up into possible fields that could explain the characters’ existence in a realistic world.

      • Ares = Greek
        Mars = Roman

        • Thanks, I get so annoyed at people mixing them up that I somehow did it myself. Now I’m annoyed at myself.

          • I always remember that the planets in our solar system are Roman gods. What gripes me is the mix up of Hercules and Heracles. Heracles is Greek and the son of Zeus, sure the Greek/Roman gods are pretty interchangable but Pluto isn’t the brother of Zeus and the Greeks don’t worship Neptune. It’s a small detail, but it really bugs me.

            • Yes, I am with you.

      • Am I the only one who doesn’t see “Ancient Astronaut Theory” as being more realistic than straight-up Greek deities being real?
