While you were watching football until your eyes bled yesterday, DC released the final trailer for Justice League, and frankly, it looks spectacular and a continuation of the positive momentum created by Gal Gadot and Wonder Woman.
After three DCEU movies —Man Of Steel, Batman v Superman, and Wonder Woman — it appears that Warner Bros and DC have finally pinned down the right tone for these movies. While Man Of Steel (which I loved) and BvS (which I thought was okay) were a little too dark and dour for some, DC seemingly got the formula right with Wonder Woman, which is now considered one of the greatest comic book movies of all-time.
The trailer opens up by addressing the Kryptonian elephant in the room, Superman, without delving into the specifics of his (assumed) eventual resurrection and how he fits into the plot. The rest of the footage is mostly stuff we’ve already seen, but that’s a good thing, as Warner Bros. notoriously messed up the marketing for Batman v Superman by revealing Doomsday’s inclusion.
What I’m looking for here is tone, chemistry, and CGI – all of which seems to be on point. With Wonder Woman and Batman already locked in as bankable characters, it looks as though Jason Mamoa’s Aquaman is going to be the breakout star.
Also, Gal Gadot is high-key the most beautiful person on this Earth and I will not be told otherwise. Just soak this in for a second:
Justice League will hit theaters on November 17, 2017.
