Well, here it is, another trailer for a DC film. It’s really getting hard to care about superhero films these days as there are just way too many. It’s especially hard to get hyped up for a new DC film because, frankly, they just haven’t been very good with the exception of Wonder Woman. Here we are again, though, as DC screws the pooch with their lackluster Justice League Heroes trailer.
The company’s last theatrical release, the aforementioned Wonder Woman, was actually very enjoyable. With Justice League a little over a month away, it looks like they’re going back to their Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice approach by cramming a lot of “stuff” into one film. Three characters, Aquaman, Cyborg, and The Flash, have yet to be introduced in this universe. The film will apparently put some focus on Lois Lane following the fate of Superman in BvS and there’s also going to be some comedy shoehorned in.
On top of all of this, there’s the director change. Zack Snyder left the project in May following his daughter’s suicide earlier in the year. Joss Whedon was hired to direct extensive reshoots and rewrite some of the script. While the studio has stated that Whedon will keep a similar style to Snyder, that’s a bit hard to believe. Clearly, someone wasn’t happy with the direction of the film otherwise there wouldn’t have been the extensive reshoots. At this point, Justice League seems like an epic disaster in the making. The tagline at the end of the trailer reads, “ALL IN.” Well, that’s what this film feels like. DC is going all in on it and, if it flops, the DC Extended Universe will be as good as dead.
The film is set for release on November 17th. Check out the new Justice League Heroes trailer and comment below.
