9 DCEU Characters That Are Totally Different From The Comics


9) Carol Ferris

Comic Books: The Vice President of Ferris Aircraft, Carol Ferris is the long-term love interest of Hal Jordan AKA Green Lantern. Their relationship has become strained over the years, however, due to Carol turning into the supervillain Star Sapphire, a rival to the Green Lantern Corps.

DCEU: Carol Ferris has directly appeared in 2011’s Green Lantern, in a fairly faithful version played by Blake Lively.  For this list, though, we’re referring to the supporting DCEU character, known as Carrie Farris.

As you can tell by the similarity in names, the character – portrayed by Christina Wren – has been confirmed to be a slant on Carol. Appearing in Man of Steel and Batman V Superman, Carrie is an US Air Force officer – a similar career to Ferris. However, due to Hal Jordan not being introduced in this universe yet, she doesn’t have any connection to Green Lantern. Whether there are any plans to feature the character in the upcoming Green Lantern Corps, we don’t yet know.

8) Steve Trevor

Comic Books: Like Superman has Lois Lane, Wonder Woman always has Steve Trevor by her side. Traditionally, Steve was a WWII soldier who was totally smitten by the Amazon princess and frequently tried to get her to marry him – however, he showed no interest in his dowdy secretary, Diana Prince. Modern comics have portrayed him as Diana’s U.N. liaison, the head of A.R.G.U.S. and in a relationship with Etta Candy.

DCEU: Wonder Woman‘s Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) has been moved back in time to be a WWI era spy. Unlike his traditional comics counterpart, he isn’t portrayed as a damsel-in-distress – or rather a ‘gentleman-in-jeopardy’ – and is actually given the big heroic moment at the end of the movie.

Yes, the biggest change the DCEU made to Steve Trevor is that he was killed off very quickly into Diana’s career as Wonder Woman. Rumours state that Chris Pine could be back, but unless he returns thanks to Flashpoint changing the timelines, we have to assume Steve will stay dead.
