Warner Brothers and DC released the first official trailer for the Justice League movie that will see the heroes from the DC universe team up for the first time on the big screen.
Both the DCEU movies in 2016 left a lot of people scratching their heads. The trailers to both Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad all looked good, but the movies themselves weren’t able to live up to the hype. Yes both movies made money at theaters and both movies have their strong points, but neither were able to put the whole package together.
This is first new trailer since last July when Warner Brothers unexpectedly released footage at Comic Con. One of the biggest highlights from this newest trailer at least for me was getting to see the unveiling of J.K. Simmons as Commissioner James Gordon.
Warner Brothers obviously went out of their way to show that this movies overall tone will not be as brooding as what Batman v Superman seemed to be. It looked as if they tried to find a nice balance of humor along with the darker tone that Warner Brothers has always said they wanted with these movies.
Two moments in this trailer that really stuck out to me. The first one was with Barry Allen and Bruce Wayne when Barry asks Bruce Wayne “What are your super powers again?” and Wayne responds “I’m rich”. The second moment involves Bruce Wayne as Batman and Commissioner Gordon and Gordon telling Batman “It’s good to see your playing well with others again” and Batman responds back with “It maybe temporary.”
As I hoped, Warner Brothers did not show, mention or give any hints as to what they may have in store for Henry Cavill’s Superman and I’m completely fine with that. I would prefer not to get any hints of Superman in any of the promotions leading up to the movie. Somethings should be left as a surprise when your watching the movie in the theaters.
Justice League opens in theaters November 17th.
