Hypothetical: You’re a Justice League superhero and you’re facing off against the Suicide Squad. Who are you and who do you prefer to punch?
That’s the question Justice League stars faced at their San Diego Comic-Con panel on Saturday, and four of them stepped up right away. It’s like they’re ready for a fight or something.
Jason Momoa, Justice League’s Aquaman, would take Boomerang (because he’d be easiest?). Although Digger Harkness — played in the Suicide movie by Jai Courtney — was locked up by The Flash, in this hypothetical he’d face off against the aquatic superhero (and former Dothraki warlord).
Gal Gadot, Justice League’s Wonder Woman, has her eyes on Harley Quinn. Margot Robbie was impressively badass in Suicide Squad — the troubled movie’s bright spot, to most eyes — but Diana Prince would totally win here. She’s a superhuman warrior from a lost land and Harley’s more of a straightforward sociopath. No contest.
Ezra Miller, Justice League’s Flash, is all about punching Deadshot. He mentioned that he’s had a standing plan to fight with Will Smith for a long time.
"Me and the Fresh Prince are gonna go at it, no holds barred," Miller said during the panel. "I’m done for." Cue all the laughs.
It was a toss-up for Ray Fisher, Justice League’s Cyborg, between Killer Croc and Enchantress. Ultimately, he settled on the latter, played by Cara Delevingne in Suicide Squad. Why? "Sci-fi vs. magic," he said.
Ben Affleck, Justice League’s Batman… said nothing. Probably because Batman is a terrible team player and would never willingly show up for any fistfight with these bozos.
As for the group’s Superman, Henry Cavill … he was a panel no-show. Because we’re still supposed to believe (Batman v Superman spoiler alert) that he’s dead following Dawn of Justice. Or whatever.
