Ok, so you’re not crammed into Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con. Who says that means you don’t get to see the new ‘Justice League’ trailer that just dropped? That’s right, we’ve got it for you right here!
Batman and Flash and Wonder Woman– OH MY! If you’re a DC guy/gal at heart, then Justice League is the movie you’ve been waiting for! The superhero crew gathered at the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con where they premiered a sneak peek at the film and it is unreal! Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) all fly into action in what promises to be the perfect follow-up to the summer smash Wonder Woman. Fans also got their first glimpse of the film’s villain Steppenwolf! Peruse picks of the incredible cast right here!
From an insane opening in which Wonder Woman effortless handles a handful of marauders to Aquaman doing battle below the waves, this film looks to provide all the eye candy fans are hoping for! Steppenwolf (played by Ciarán Hinds) delivers a terrifying little monologue hinting at the weaknesses of mankind as well as the members of the super team, concluding: “This world will fall.” The trailer also takes the time to remind fans that, at the end of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Superman (Henry Cavill) was killed during the battle. Of course, we all know Henry was involved with Justice League, which begs the question: Just how will they bring him back?!
Although the film is definitely shaping up to be as dark and gloomy as previously DC films, there’s a fresh sense of wonder and, notably, humor that comes across in this clip that’s been lacking in past films and even in previous Justice League trailers. Could that be the work of Marvel director Joss Whedon? He stepped in to film reshoots in recent months so that Zach Snyder could deal with “a family tragedy,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. Regardless of where it came from, the comedic timing is just about perfect, delivering some one-liners, primarily from The Flash, that hit their mark. Also, although there’s some debate over whether or not Ben Affleck is going to continue to play the Dark Knight, he looks sensational in this promo! It looks like DC will be able to give their superhero universe the gusto it deserves! Justice League drops Nov. 17, 2017.
