Doubt it. I thought it was supposed to start filming a long time ago because they cast that one dude as Deathstroke, but apparently they haven't even written the damn thing yet.

I was Affleck would just leave already, which we know he's going to do. He's holding everything up.

But if you do obsess over dumb shit like that? You get Capeshit writing.
I don't think it's too much to ask that a movie follow the rules it laid out just a few scenes before.

You can make your time travel have some semblance of a set of rules without the Butterfly Effect. There are a few theories on what a time paradox would do.

Looper makes no damn sense. They chop off that one dude's limbs, thus causing the future version to go limbless, but he still exists with the same history and everything. On the other hand, Young Bruce Willis kills himself and Old Bruce Willis just vanishes as if he never existed. But by the movie's logic, he should have just dropped dead next to Young Bruce Willis, played by Joseph Gordon Levitt.

Spoilers above!
If you have to stick to time travel rules that fucking strictly, then the movie will be shit. The concept of the Butterfly Effect will simply ruin almost any time travel story, since someone going back in time and merely effecting a few peoples lives by just being there can change everything.

This is why Johnson ignored that shit and made the character drama stronger, the scene with the guys limb's coming off makes no sense when you think about it, but in relation to the story and the dramatic impact it had was perfectly fine since it was horrifying. But if you go with your approach, he would have had to rewrite the movie a thousand times to stick to "time travel rules" and it would have had no dramatic tension at all. Even The Simpsons episode where Homer goes back in time with the toaster makes no sense since everyone else changes but him, you can make that shitty nitpick with almost any time travel story.

But if you do obsess over dumb shit like that? You get Capeshit writing.

Also Wonder Woman origins have were retconned multiple times and things got so insane that those retcons created Power Girl and Donna Troy, she had another retcon during the New 52. The Amazons were turned into raiders that raid to kidnap, rape and kill mens oh and if the child is born a boy they kill it. Recently a splinter group of Amazons were introduced that call themselves something else that settled into the Middle East, which was revealed in Red Hood and the Outlaws. Jason Todd was turned sympathetic, tried to help Bizarro and him and Batman reconciliated with Bruce turning a blind eye to Jason killings. Oh and Batman and Catwoman might marry.
Sorry i rarely get to sperg about comics.
Far as I know, Power Girl's never had anything to do with Wonder Woman. She was an Atlantean briefly, because Crisis on Infinite Earths took out Earth 2 and she was Supergirl of Earth 2, so they needed a new origin for her

Also, Artemis and the Amazons of Bana-Mighdall (which is who I assume you're talking about) predate Red Hood and the Outlaws by a long mile. They were subject of an arc (a pretty good arc, actually) in the '90s: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Contest_(DC_Comics)

It's all about dem deep character studies, man.

And I don't think any Bat-marriage would last long. The next reboot or retcon will get rid of it because editors are paranoid that being married would make their heroes "too old" and unrelatable for a new, younger audience.
