Justice League Trailer and Posters

Well, it’s about damn time, Snyder! This week we were annoyingly shown a few 20 second-long teaser trailers which pretty much showed nothing and pissed this film fan off! Now Zack Snyder, DC and Warner Bros. are showing us something with a little bit more depth. We have a Justice League trailer.

From the 2 and half minutes of CGI fuckery, we’re shown almost all of the League with Superman being the notably missing one because he’s “dead”. The team band together a couple of times throughout the trailer which shows that they can work together to bring down an enemy who is already here. Bruce Wayne is trecking somewhere to begin with before we see him and Diana Prince converse regarding the others meaning those he has found to form this team of superheroes. Aquaman, Cyborg then The Flash all appear in their respective introductory sections and, before we see them altogether, we’re given a brief glimpse at a swinging almost flying Batman. The action shown is a lot of fun whilst being given to us very sparingly as to not show much of the story. “What are your superpowers again?” “I’m rich”. Nice little double act from Bruce and Barry Allen. We have our first glimpse at Billy Crudup who is playing Barry’s father Henry Allen, as well as J.K. Simmons looking like a more seasoned Commissioner Gordon.

On a personal note, I think it looks too similar to Batman vs. Superman, which isn’t exactly promising. The problems with Snyder’s previous film make for too long a list to include here but the fact that this is primarily full of CGI makes me wonder where they are going with this film. There are strong parts to this trailer including Aquaman who finally has more than one word to say, as a few bits of comedy thrown in due to complaints that DC is taking itself too seriously. My other problem is that DC is rushing it’s way through it’s films, when you compare them to Marvel well, there’s no comparison at all. Marvel have taken their time building it’s own vast universe, slowly introducing the characters it wants to develop, hardly ever putting a foot wrong. Now, DC want the same thing. What they should have done, in my humble opinion, is basically the same thing. It would have worked out a lot better. Handing the reins to the DCEU mostly to Snyder is a huge mistake considering what failures his previous two DC film were. They had their moments but they were not quite what they needed to be. I’m keeping my hopes low and my fingers crossed, come on DC. You need a decent film.

The posters look pretty dam good, the design in sleek and smooth, showing how tough this team is. However some utter morons have commented that apparently Wonder Woman looks as if she’s peeing. What the fuck is wrong with people?! Anyway, check out the gallery below which includes the logo, each individual and the team altogether. Batman looks as if he wants to wants to get out of there and carry on saving the day, calm down! You’ll get your chance!

Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League is out towards the end of this year. It stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Henry Cavill, Ray Fisher, J.K. Simmons, Amy Adams and freaking loads more! The story is set around the start of the Justic League which Bruce Wayne puts together after being inspired by the selfless acts of Superman.
