In the movie Justice League.
Flash mentions his one of skills.

"Sign Language.. Gorilla Sign language. "
He says it like first time hey said Itwrong and then corrects it with Gorilla.

I have really no idea whatsoever as to what it means?.

That's GSL. It comes after Koko, the gorilla, who learned about thousand word vocabulary.

It is not the same as American Sign Language.
ie He can't communicate with deaf people. Just with gorillas.

Yeah, I don't think you can take a comic film that literally!
Maybe it is the sign language gorillas use to each other, without humans even realising. And Koko was just being kind to the poor ignorant researchers by using their basic signs.

In the Justice League it would be Gorilla Grodd an enemy of the Flash.


Although sign language is redundant he’s supposed to be telepathic.

I am sensing a vast amount of knowledge about this topic, Sarriesfan.......Whistle

Or should that be Marvelfan?

(is it Marvel, or DC? Those are different, right? As you see my knowledge is near zero. Liked Arrow on TV and the Flash was in that, but don't understand any of the tie-ins further than that. Oh, and hulk the hitchhiker, when he was a partially deaf Italian-American body-builder)

Oh not a vast amount of knowledge, just a passing one. Although possibly more than most I’ll admit I did sit through all 4hrs of the Snyder Cut, with a break in the middle.
This is D.C. although I dabble in both that and Marvel, but it’s not like I have a comic book collection or have ever dressed up like one at a convention.

Right. Who needs a convention. Just doing it in the privacy of your own home is better. Whistle

(well, post on a grammar thread, you get grammar-nitpicking answers!)

I took it as a joke. He understands sign language, but then adds only gorilla sign language, which is much simpler, and related to his adversary, Grodd, who is a gorilla.
