Justice League hits theatres November 17th. But to each their own.
The new footage features the first footage of Superman (Henry Cavill), new glimpses of epic action, and a couple amusing dialogue exchanges that may (or may not) show new director Joss Whedon's influence. The trailer goes on to give us heaps of unseen moments, from Wonder Woman standing atop a statue to Cyborg catching Aquaman in the air and hurling him back into battle.
Has there ever been a film so hotly debated ahead of its release than Justice League? However, it's hard to forget how bad Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad are.
How much of Justice League will follow the Superman storyline?
As one last primer, Justice League stars Gadot, Affleck, Cavill, Raymond Fisher, Jason Momoa and Ezra Miller as DC heroes Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, Cyborg, Aquaman, and the Flash respectively. It is always a treat to witness superheroes using their powers. That said the trailer does not feel like another Avengers, and still retains the gritty edge we have gotten used to from Snyders vision of the DCEU. I would not call myself a DC Comics fan unless I really believed this notion. However, with only Wonder Woman getting a decent critical reaction in the run-up to the superhero team-up, enthusiasm for the film has been somewhat dampened. The filmmakers also hope to broaden their reach by striking a more lighthearted tone after critics derided "Batman v. Superman" for its humorlessness. Apparently, the runtime is about three hours, too.
The past week and a half have been odd regarding news of the DC Extended Cinematic Universe.
