FB_IMG_1469311431138So close to the release of the Wonder Woman trailer, I did not expect to get a full on Justice League trailer as well… Yet here we are…. This looks like Warner Brothers hearing the fan complaints of BvS and taking this in still a serious but much more lighthearted direction.  A few more thoughts I’ll list as bullet points below

 

  • Anyone else notice the absence of Superman in this footage?
  • I really really dig the White Stripes music on the background.
  • Though the visual aesthetic is the same from BvS, this is decidedly much lighter in tone.
  • Bruce Wayne cracks a few jokes!
  • I personally don’t like Cyborg and could’ve easily swapped him out for Green Lantern
  • I didn’t think I’d be able to get past them not bringing Grant Gustin in from the TV version of The Flash, But Ezra Miller has sold me on just a few seconds of screen time
  • Did I sense a potential romance angle for Bruce and Diana?
  • Also… Really digging on Ben Affleck’s beard in this trailer.
  • Does it seem like they might be angling at Arthur Curry as a potential antagonist? At least until he joins the squad?
  • Though his performance looks amazing, the visual representation of the Speed Force kind of looks bland and borrowed from Quicksilver over in the X Men movies
  • I love how it seems Bruce has completely come back from the brink of madness they showed him at in BvS and now he seems to be the rallying point for the whole team.
  • We get some more teases of the mother boxes featured in the Ultimate Edition of Batman V Superman but no clear establishing shots of main baddie Steppenwolf.
  • The shot of them standing all together near the end of the teaser literally gave me chills.

Justice-League-Movie-Logo-Black-BGI also really dug this one quite a bit more than Wonder Woman. There’s so much to digest but those were some of the main points I wanted to hit after my first few viewings. Sound off below with your thoughts and comments.

About the author

Brodie Mann

I suppose my story begins(as most do) on the day of my birth. I mean, i’d like to sit here and tell you about the ticker tape parade that was thrown in my honor, or that my being vaginally farted into the world signaled a time of unbridled peace and love throughout the galaxy, but i will do my best to try and be humble about my epic origins. Truth is my real origin is as ordinary as apple pie. I was hobbled together from various body parts of criminals on death row who opted to be organ donors. I suppose you could say I’m the Bizarro six million dollar man (but judging by my appearance you couldn’t tell they spent more than a few shillings on me).

In between being chased by townsfolk with pitchforks and torches opposed to the “abomination” of my existence i have developed a passion for writing. The only thing that can match such lofty desires would be a lifelong passion for film. I mean I’m quite nerdy about lots of things (video games, comic books, music, etc…) but cinema in all its shiny golden splendor has captured my attention more than anything else. It’s something I try to share with the world at large, as much as possible. I figure if i can find the magic in such things, maybe i can help others do so as well.

I’ve written quite a few poems(mostly about my first few years as a dime store knockoff Mary Shelly creation) but have stuck to mostly movie reviews. I am quite elated to be able to relate my thoughts and opinions on all things film with those who take the time to read them. I hope to have a positive impact here on the site and am looking forward to not only working with the staff currently in place but being able to reach a wider audience as well.

P.S. If some of my work comes off a bit sloppy and meandering, its just because the doctor responsible for the stitch job on my cranial cavity didn’t do that great job and my brain has fallen out of the hole in my head they used to pump blood into. Cheers Mates!!
