Well, damn. That Warner Bros Comic-Con panel is just delivering the goods. I had just barely finished typing the story about the incredible Wonder-Woman trailer being released, refresh my news feeds and blam! There’s the first trailer for Justice League! Yes, you read that correctly. Despite it still being production, director Zack Snyder surprised the folks in attendance at Comic-Con’s Hall H by showing off the first footage from the highly anticipated superhero team-up movie, which was prepared especially for Comic-Con.

And by now none of you are probably even reading my words anymore, so I’m just going to stop typing them so we can all get to that trailer!

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Well that did not go at all the way I expected! And I mean that in a good way! I’m absolutely loving what I’m seeing here, but it’s a massive change in tone to the incredibly grim and dark Batman v Superman. As was reported a short while back, Snyder and co had heard the complaints from fans about the BvS and were going to address that. Well, they definitely did that here. Also, no offense to Grant Gustin who will always be my first Flash love, but I’m really kind of digging his Barry Allen here. Not sold on the overly robotic suit though, but I got a feeling that’s merely an early costume.

And speaking of costumes, I know that the film still has quite a bit of post-production work to go so they will probably still be tweaking the all-CG body of Ray Fisher’s Cyborg, but what I’m seeing here does not look that good. Let’s hope they still need to polish that up.

Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe and J.K. Simmons. It is scheduled for release on November 17, 2017.

A man of many passions – but very little sleep – I’ve been geeking out over movies, video games, comics, books, anime, TV series and lemon meringues as far back as I can remember. So show up for the geeky insight, stay for the delicious pastries.

    I still think the biggest problem here is Zack Snyder. WB should have just pulled out the big cheese grater and some elbow grease and put Nolan in charge of this project. We all have a price.

      I remember reading that if WB had sacked him, it would have been a bad business move (stock prices, shares, blah blah blah) so that’s why they kept him. That’s also why they brought in Geoff Johns to sort of reel it al together and my oh my, has he done well, (according to this trailer).

      IMO though, Snyder shouldn’t be doing blockbuster movies, primarily because he hates 80% of the colour palette !

    The best part about this WHOLE trailer isn’t the possibility that the world could wake up to Aquaman’s awesomeness, or the Ezra Miller could actually surpass Grant Gustin’s version of The Flash/Barry Allen, or that Wonder Woman looks hot and looks like she was taken from the comics or that Cyborg has like 4 seconds and made me think, “want to be half robot NOW”………… It’s that DC was allowed to use more than 6 colours, it makes a MASSIVE difference to EVERYTHING, whilsts keeping the vibe they want……well done DC! Well Done!

    So did Aquaman kill the fish himself, or did he just politely ask them to commit suicide?
