Rumor: Man Of Steel 2 May Introduce Supergirl To DCEU

Earlier this month, Warner Bros. saw Wonder Woman march into theaters for her first live-action standalone, and the heroine has been breaking records since. The newest DCEU film has garnered rave reviews from both fans and critics, leaving many to wonder whether Warner Bros. will push DC Entertainment to introduce more female superheroes to its franchise. And, now, one rumor is suggesting the DCEU may be eyeing Supergirl for such an occasion.

The DCEU fandom has been given a new rumor to consider thanks to an anonymous source from 4chan (via ScreenRant). The post claims that Man of Steel 2 is in development already and will act as a premiere platform for Supergirl.

“The sequel to Man of Steel has been developing in secret,” the post writes. “Geoff Johns and Zack Snyder finished writing a story for the film back in November. Multiple writers were approached to turn into a screenplay including the writers from Watchmen and the 300 movie series. Brainiac will be the villain and Supergirl will be introduced to the DCEU.”

Of course, there is no evidence to back up the sources claim. Warner Bros. will likely leave the rumor to simmer in it own ambiguous state should they catch wind of it, but the notion does give fans plenty to ponder. Supergirl has become a more lucrative heroine to DC Entertainment as of late thanks to the character’s titular show. The CW wrapped the second season of Supergirl recently, and a third season has already been ordered.

Still, there is a chance that bringing in Supergirl to the DCEU may cause a rift with fans. DCEU diehards will surely remember the controversy which arose when Ezra Miller was cast as the Flash for Justice League. Fans of the Arrowverse on The CW pushed back against the casting as they associated Grant Gustin with Barry Allen thanks to the network’s standalone series. Melissa Benoist is the actress currently tied to Supergirl, so the franchise will surely face resistance once more should they be wanting to cast the heroine into the DCEU.

When it comes to Man of Steel 2, much remains a mystery to fans. Audiences only know the film is in the works as Henry Cavill’s reps have nodded to the sequel in regards to the actor’s schedule. There is no anticipated release date for the new film, but DC Entertainment has some time to nail down the particulars. Justice League still has its premiere coming later this year, and other projects like Aquaman are now filming. With plenty of features in active development or production, Man of Steel 2 will have to wait its turn for the spotlight. And, when the film does get its start, fans may just get to see Superman’s cousin make a brief appearance.

Heavy police presence keeps anti-Ann Coulter and geared-up alt-right activists apart at Berkeley

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter’s cancelled appearance at the University of California, Berkeley drew hundreds of her supporters to a nearby park, many of them dressed in flak jackets, helmets and other protective gear in anticipation of violence. Many wore “Make America Great Again” caps and displayed symbols such as Pepe le Frog and the Kekistan flag, which have become associated with the alt-right movement via 4chan.

However, there were no major confrontations between Coulter’s supporters and opponents, largely because of a significant police presence and the fact that members of an extremist left-wing group did not show up to provoke clashes. While the afternoon rally ended without serious conflict, police at one point formed a human wall in the street separating anti-Trump protesters from the park where pro-Trump groups were gathered.

Coulter had publicly floated the idea of making a controversial visit to Berkeley despite the cancellation, but did not show. Many lamented what they called the latest blow to free speech in the home of America’s free speech movement. Both her supporters and detractors voiced frustration that she didn’t get to speak and that the university’s reputation as a bastion of tolerance was suffering. Coulter had planned to give a speech on illegal immigration.

Gavin McInnes, co-founder of Vice Media and founder of the pro-Trump “Proud Boys,” was one of several speakers at the gathering. He delivered the speech Coulter had planned to give on illegal immigration, on her behalf, to the crowd’s raucous applause. “They tried to ban her and we can’t allow that. It’s unacceptable,” McInnes said as he left the gathering surrounded by private security. “Free speech is about uncomfortable speech. Yes, it’s often about hate speech and it’s about speech that’s banned.”

Anti-Coulter and anti-Trump protesters at the park held a banner that read: “It’s not about 'free speech,’ it’s about bigots trying to normalise hate.” Six people were arrested, including one for obstructing an officer and wearing a mask to evade police, and another for possessing a knife.

Earlier this month, a bloody brawl broke out in Berkeley at a pro-Trump protest that featured speeches by members of the white nationalist right. They clashed with a group of Trump critics who called themselves anti-fascists. In February, violent protesters forced the cancellation of a speech by right-wing writer Milo Yiannopoulos, who like Coulter was invited by campus Republicans.

Officials at UC Berkeley said they feared renewed violence on campus if Coulter followed through with plans to speak, citing “very specific intelligence” of threats that could endanger Coulter and students, which Coulter said was motivated by a university bias against conservative speakers.

So my fiance and I awkwardly enough met via 4chan because I made a sad post on /b/ once when I was at a very low point in my life.

Awkwardly enough, everyone was very nice and the guy who I’m now engaged to actually talked me through a lot of issues I was going through at the time.

He was my best friend for the longest time and I ended up making the below comic as a Valentine’s Day gift sort of years later. I kind of lost it for a bit and just refound it and thought I’d share ^^;
