Legion Of Super-Heroes is rated "PG-13" for some violence and language. This was posted before but then the info was removed, as I said on the previous page. Now that it's back on FilmRatings.com, a trailer might be released soon.
Yeah, I think if the trailer isn't paired with that cast and home release PR, it's usually within the next 6 days. So at the earliest, we'll have a trailer in a couple hours today, Wednesday, but should be out Friday or Monday at the latest, imo.

Alright, a lot of cool stuff here :)!

- Meg Donnely sounds fantastic as Kara! Also, the skirt and boots (which actually have heels)! Supergirl looks amazing :D!

- The designs look like they're drawing from a lot of different influences (and some of the Legionnaires are changed to reflect their actors). Some Legionnaires (specifically Bouncing Boy and I think Dawnstar) have their recent Ryan Sook redesigns while others have more traditional looks (Triplicate Girl, Saturn Girl, etc.). Weirdly Cosmic Boy looks white instead of Asian while Lightning Lad is black...and Princess Projectra is using her Sensor Girl design :cool:.

- I love that Arm Fall Off Boy seems to be a semi-prominent character in this :anime:.

- Looks like the main Legion is actually missing? I wonder if that'll be resolved in the movie :confused:.

- Now I think I understand why they didn't give Brainy hair, so he'd look like the more unconventional (and less attractive) love interest compared to Mon-El which means he's actually going to be the winner ;).

- Of course Batman is calling out Supergirl. Like the guy didn't just bungle his way through his own movie duology :rolleyes:.

- Shadow Lass seems like a senior Legionnaire which makes me wonder if they might tease anything between her and Mon-El o_O.

- Solomon Grundy shooting a frikkin' laser gun :p.

Idk why but I'm still stuck on 'there's nowhere to safely train her in the present so they do something extreme as sending her to a superhero team in the future?' It's comic book sci-fi stuff and I shouldn't be so hung up on it. Maybe it's because I'm still in a malaise this week.

I did love Arm Fall Off Boy's scene and implication they're taking him seriously in this canon.

I wonder if it's gonna be some rando twist that the Dark Circle has just lackeys and a Legionairre or C.O.M.P.U.T.O. went bad--nah, they wouldn't do that right after Green Lantern: Beware My Power...

I'm sorry to hear that! I hope you're doing better :oops:.

I kind of get the sense that Clark takes her to the Legion because this is how he grew to understand his powers and abilities before MoT, so basically helping Kara train the way he used to. That and there aren't a lot of teen heroes in the Tomorrow-verse yet so she'll have more people to hang out with :).

After Beware My Power I'm worried Mon-El is going to turn into a bad guy :(.

Most likely but idk feels off like he's handing her off and not really taking responsibility.

Brainy just doesn't feel right without the blonde locks, to me, but I guess it's not as though they made him orange or anything. I have always found it funny in past continuities like the DCAU where characters would recognize him as a Brainiac, even though he looks nothing like that universe's Brainiac. I love the Legion and from this quick glimpse at them in this teaser, I'm reminded of how weird and intriguing I found them when my aunt gave me a LOSH comic when I was 5. You can never really forget the first time you see Bouncing Boy, or find out he's married to Duo Damsel.

Meg Donnelly as Supergirl is pretty neat casting. My sister will like that.

Looks pretty good so far. Supergirl's design is nice, I mentioned before it was reminiscent of her Superman Unbound look and with Brainiac involved there are some more parallels in there. Brainiac 5 looks fine. Also, lots of Legionnaires, similar to JL vs Fatal Five, so there should be plenty of cameos.

From what I can tell that's Supergirl next to Green Lantern on the DVD cover spine.

The Movies Anywhere page for the movie mentions a February 7, 2023 release date.

Very odd to have a trailer only on a social media account and not a hi res one on Youtube to accompany nor on the usual IGN feature then the usual Movies Anywhere page spoiling a release date. Feels like there should have been a PR statement, too, but I suppose it will drop in a few hours.

Kara with that smirk as she's between Mon-El and Brainy :p.

I like it when all the versions release on one day. Though, with Supergirl and Brainiac-5 factoring into this story, wonder why not February 14th but then perhaps they wanted to keep it and the Harley Quinn special on different days and the latter was more in line with the holiday.

Glad to see a lot of special features for this set. Seems like the roundtable featurettes are going to take the place of commentary tracks.

I'm thinking about how Man of Tomorrow felt like such a refreshing start and I couldn't wait to see how things would continue from there. Now I look at this trailer and it's hilarious to me how swiftly this universe has progressed outside of our notice. It reminds me of something like Thundercats Petaliers episode where decades were passing every second that Lion-O turned around.

It kind of reminds me of how abrupt certain MCU films can feel because they jump around sometimes and have a lot happen off-screen, but it's less noticeable because they usually release more content year-by-year.

About @Frontier's concern on the recent DCEU plans, while I understand his worries, I really hope it doesn't mean it's the end of non-DCEU content like the DTV animated films but yeah.
Oh, and I feel like I should add: contrary to Bart's accurate calling out of Comic Book Guy's nitpicking when this show was on network TV, I PAID for Disney+ to watch The Simpsons, thank you very much, so I think I'm entitled to a certain level of customer satisfaction. Maybe it's because it's cheap, because HBO Max certainly delivers, and boy, that one's pricey.

This quote used to be a hilarious meme I'd use to counter salty fanboys. But now that I've seen it in context of the episode... yikes. No wonder the Simpsons went downhill when the writers thought so little of what garbage they're feeding their audience. Meanwhile, South Park...

Also, ironically, this quote felt far more obnoxious than most of SP's lines because of the context.
episode 4 of the really loud house has the same stock scream sound effect from that "its monday... already?" garfield meme

and they play it twice in 15 seconds
Check out @Sam the Cartoonist 's thread in The Drawing Board, The Shapes!


There you'll find a link to a truly wild and funny comic strip. It's great.
