Trailer Review: JUSTICE LEAGUE

Howdy fellow film freaks, Robert here. The first trailer for Justice League, director Zack Snyder's latest exercise in dividing fandom as only he can, has been released. Check it out below.

Wow, man. Just wow. It looks like they're not letting up the pace following 2016's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and I say there ain't nothing wrong with that. This trailer introduces us to the rest of the heroes that make up the League. For those of you who are just joining us, those are: the Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and Aquaman (Jason "F Marvel" Momoa), in addition to Gal Godot returning as a gloriously badass Wonder Woman and, of course, Bat-fleck (Ben Affleck), the greatest of all non-1960s Batmen.

Yeah, you heard me.

The story picks up following the events of Batman v. Superman, with Bats and Wonder Woman tracking down the other metahumans they learned about in the previous film and recruiting them into the fight against whatever cosmic evil Lex Luthor contacted. It looks like they are on a bit of a time issue at this point because the enemy has started to arrive.

With my amazing powers of prognostication, I predict that this movie will get lousy reviews and garner a cult following. While I don't subscribe to the idea that this is due to some Rotten Tomatoes Conspiracy, I do think the problem has a lot to do with Zack Snyder's approach to moviemaking. Snyder tries to make smarter-than-average movies in historically dumb genres. More to the point, though: while I have love for the movies coming from Disney/Marvel, after a decade or more of colorful, unflappable one-liner generators playing out live-action cartoons, movies about superhumans with human fallibility and doubt come as a breath of fresh air. Say what you will, but I'm not ready to abandon the DCEU just yet.

Justice League premiers on November 17, 2017.

  1. Why is The Flash a goofball and especially why is he a kid? The Flash that I see in the upcoming movie is enough for me to literally avoid the new Justice League movie which is a shame. The same reason I don't watch The Flash tv series, although The Flash from what little I've seen of the t.v. show is not an idiot like the character development(?) appearing in the J.L. film. I think younger people are smart enough to appreciate older aged superheroes on the big screen like I did when I was younger. What Cartoon Network did with the Teen Titans, toy versions of heroes as preteens and to a lesser degree the legos heroes is just pathetic and marketing abuse. Sorry, kind of went off topic on that last sentences. Just saying
