As promised by a series of seemingly never-ending mini-teaser trailers earlier this week, Warner Bros has finally revealed a proper trailer for this November’s DC Comics superhero mashup extravaganza, Justice League.
Uniting all the major heroes under one group and paying off the hints from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, we’ve got Batman (Ben Affleck), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), and Aquaman (Jason Momoa) uniting after the passing of Superman (Henry Cavill) to be one giant, butt-kicking force.
A force who apparently use a Beatles cover as their collective theme song.
Here’s the official synopsis via the WB:
Fueled by the hero’s restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Justice League sees Bruce Wayne enlist the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, the movie clearly has style for days, and the SDCC trailer last summer promised that we’d see a bit of a sense of humor, but what does this trailer feel like? Here it is, for your eyeballs:
Personally, I feel like that one of the biggest issues of the DC Extended Universe is that there’s yet to be an understanding that, while it’s nice to have this lineup together on screen, we need to care about why they’re together – and this is really lacking the umph that seeing the Avengers form as a unit on screen then.
Is it an issue of the writing? Or an issue of timing?
We’ll have to see. It’s nice to see some quips, though.
In addition to today’s new trailer, Warner Bros has released a whole slew of posters for the movie, including a logo teaser, a group poster, and character posters for the cast. Check ‘em out!
Justice League unites in theaters on November 10, 2017.
