Alrighty, so this was expected but to actually see footage of this long, long awaited film is still amazing, the culmination of years of planning from Warner Bros and Zack Snyder, the first trailer for Justice League starts off where Batman V Superman left off, with Bruce and Diana tracking down and trying to recruit meta-humans to form a team following the death of you know who. Bruce is trying to track down Aquaman initially from the looks of things but will also presumably go in search of Cyborg and The Flash (all characters who already have their powers and have been transformed), with Diana helping him as Bruce warns against an incoming danger that necessitates the existence of the Justice league – presumably Darkseid.
This is very much an introductory look to show everyone how the film’s coming along and to give us all a feel of what’s to come but so far I’m intrigued.
There’s a different type of tone to the film, distinct from Batman V Superman and I believe reports that the studio execs wanted things to be a bit lighter and have more levity as we can see with pretty much every scene with Barry Allen/The Flash (Ezra Miller) who looks like a great fit so far. And generally, I think the league is well cast and Affleck seems to revelling in the role of an older, snarkier Bruce and even quips with his sardonic sense of humour with other characters which is great to see.
And while this isn’t a tonne to go off of, I’d say it’s so far so good honestly, the tone looks lighter which is something a lot of people seemed to have wanted, the costumes look good and everyone seems to be fitting well into their roles – seeing more of Cyborg would be nice though, I’m hooked – I was going to see the film no matter what but it’s great to get a first proper look at things, DC seems to be listening to audience feedback and changing things accordingly which can be a good thing. Have you watched the trailer, do you like it or loathe it? Feel free to sound off.
