Is that about the character that shows up in the trailer? I haven't paid much attention to this so I wasn't sure if that was previously a secret or not.

Levy is terrible in these movies and as this character. I found him tolerable in the first because hey, itís his first time out, heís playing a kid, whatever. But now the idiot-schtick is no longer amusing and I donít care that the new movie directly pokes fun at his lack of ďWisdom of SolomonĒ.

Spoiler:
I wanted him to stay dead at the end. At least, this being perhaps the last time we see this incarnation of the character, it couldíve lent the movie just a bit of bittersweet gravitas. The cameo was ridiculously pointless as were BOTH credit scenes.

I liked the first movie so itís a shame that the sequel sounds underwhelming. Still might check it out when it becomes available to stream or Iíll buy the disc when itís cheap.

Cool article on Djimon Hounsou, whom I've admired as a performer for many years now

Obligatory "Who?"

But the guy is not only in both the MCU and DC universes, he's in DC twice, three times if you count Constantine.
