Warner Bros. has debuted its first trailer of the eagerly awaited Justice League movie on Saturday, 25, of March 2017. Zack Snyder is back as director to bring DC Comics’ biggest superheroes together as a team for the first time on the big screen.
Though Superman (Henry Cavill) is still in the ground, we know at some point he’ll be back to join the rest of the superhero squad.
In the meantime, Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) are left to face threats to the world themselves, and according to Bruce Wayne’s Nightmare vision from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, eventually that will include Superman himself.
Clearly Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment are trying to show that they don’t have to be grim dark all the time by having some fun with this trailer.
Some fans have been turned out by how dark and morose DC’s superheroes have been, and while Suicide Squad showed that there is some fun to be have, it didn’t have much of a coherent story to go along with it.
Wonder Woman does seem to be a bright spot coming this summer, and now this new Justice League trailer gives me hope that the DC Expanded Universe can still work.
At the very least, we know that director Zack Snyder will deliver some astounding action, and when you’re dealing with a team of superheroes, that’s good news.
Personally, I just hope that the story offers something that’s a little more engaging this time after being disappointed with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
If you’re one of those fans who was satisfied with the superhero face-off, then you shouldn’t have anything to be worried about.
Justice League arrives in cinemas on November 17.
