And yet, I'm grateful for what we got.
The new US President on Earth-Arrowverse? Just seeing her left me in tears...and seeing Donnelly Rhodes on the TV screen one more time...grateful for that.

Perception was kind enough to upload a case study of their work on Batman v Superman this week. That case study includes a map of the Metropolis-Gotham region as envisioned for the movies DC and WB have been making.
That map clearly does not hew to the maps of the two cities as published in the comics over the last couple of decades. Granted, the production team had the right to plant the two super-cities ten miles and a harbour apart from each other. Speaking for myself alone, I'd hoped that Byrne's Six Boroughs as originally drawn up for Metropolis in 1986, as well as the islands of Eliot Brown's 2000 map of Gotham could've made the cut.
Oh well...this is its own thing to begin with.
Just had a leaf-through at the local public library, specifically the first post-Flashpoint Flash collection, Move Forward, featuring Francis Manapul's material.
I have a vague feeling we covered this before...here or elsewhere...but anyway:
Did Manapul really go and replace all the existing Keystone-Central neighbourhood names with names of cities and neighbourhoods from the Greater Toronto Area? I had to take off my glasses and squint and I'm still not sure that I actually saw names like Vaughan, Pickering, Scarborough, and so forth on the map that showed up in that hardcover.
Looking back at this entry on Pete Woods' mapping out of Metropolis for the purposes of Geoff Johns, James Robinson and company a couple of years back...particularly in the context of this YouTube video Pete uploaded for other artists to work from.
The whole thing still seems a bit inconsistent with what was previously established, but I must give kudos to the effort that Pete put into this project. This took a lot of work to nail down as much as he did.
