Justice League trailer

Postby ANGELUS » 2017-03-27 12:48pm

Odd that this hasn't been posted yet:



A few things I noticed:

- Parademons invading Themyscira and amazons fighting them back
- Mera controlling water around her
- Barry talking to his dad in jail
- Lois in the movie. Are we getting Superman back already? (We know he's gonna come back eventually, but already?)

Is this a comics thing for him, or are they taking it from the show?

Also I have a feeling this will have a lot of the issues that Suicide Squad did: too many origin stories crammed in, because DC isn't doing the necessary legwork to set these characters up beforehand.

In the comics continuity Barry's father was placed under arrest after his mother was murdered.

Seems to me that it would make sense to save Superman's return for the very end of the film, as a cliff-hanger or stinger. Having things at their darkest point, and then Superman returns to turn the tide.

Lois, though, can be worked in regardless- either as a reporter or as someone who is implied to be on friendly terms with Batman and Wonder Woman as of the end of Batman v Superman.

Anyway, the DCCU has been extremely mixed so far, but Batman v Superman, to me, wasn't bad so much as poorly constructed- it feels, for the most part, like a bunch of good scenes from two or three different good films awkwardly stitched together. And if nothing else, I like WW and Affleck's Batman.
"Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes" When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics." When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy." - Lincoln.

I like the Batfleck, and what little we've seen of Wonder Woman has been ok so far. Somebody on youtube said something along the lines of "Snyder loves the idea of beautiful moments so much he forgets to make the rest of the movie for them to work out sensibly". I think that's the problem with the DCCU up to this point. They need someone that knows how to make movies, not just scenes.
