Justice League Trailer #5 (2017) “Justice is Served”

The five Justice League trailers over the last 18 months have been wildly divergent in tone, reflecting the turmoil in making the film, but the last two have been really solid.  This is a bit of a “greatest hits” of the trailers we’ve seen with new footage thrown in to whet out appetites.  I’m really looking forward to this, and that is something I was not feeling at all a few months ago.  I have a lot of questions about the future of the DCEU (not the least of which is we are going to get more Justice League films that lead to Darkseid, right?), but I think WB knows they have to nail this film to keep the momentum going from Wonder Woman (because there isn’t another DCEU film until Aquaman a year later, so the impression from this is going to last). Justice League will open November 10, 2017.  For a full plot summary, read below.
Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck, and Ezra Miller in Justice League

Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Billy Crudup as Henry Allen, Amber Heard as Mera, Kierset Clemons as Iris West, with J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, and Amy Adams as Lois Lane.

Fueled by the hero’s restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Justice League sees Bruce Wayne enlist 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.

Directed by Zack Snyder (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Man of Steel), the screenplay is by Chris Terrio from a story by Snyder and Terrio. Filmmaker Joss Whedon is set to helm the upcoming additional photography for the sequel and oversee the completion of its post production following a family tragedy with Snyder. Justice League is produced by Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns. The executive producers are Jim Rowe, Wesley Coller, Curt Kanemoto, Chris Terrio and Ben Affleck.

Justice League will open in theaters on November 10, 2017.

      1. If JL capitalizes on WW, and looks at that film’s popularity and retools, the DCEU starts getting taken seriously, and people forgive and forget. If it’s BvS redux, WW is squandered, the fan base gives up, and yet (here is the troubling part) it makes ALMOST THE SAME AMOUNT OF MONEY AS THE HYPOTHETICAL RETOOLED VERSION. There will be no incentive to make the films better. And it is hard to argue with that logic, because the studios are out to make money, and if audiences pay, that must mean they liked the movie, so mission fulfilled.

      2. I have a much better feeling about the film than I did several months ago, but I’m still wondering what they’re doing long-term. There’s no Justice League 2 in planning. They’re making Flash’s movie, Flashpoint, which if you don’t know was an event that basically reset the entire DCU….so are they going to use that to reset the DCEU, because it serves no purpose otherwise. The extra-DCEU Joker movie is a horrible idea. The Harley/Joker movie is a horrible idea. There are some really good ideas in planning stages, but for good or ill, none of that matters if JL sucks, because it’s going to sit out there with no other DCEU film for over a year to correct the impression (and then they’ll be relying on Aquaman to do it….granted I love everything about Jason Mamoa’s Aquaman, but if the world is counting on Aquaman, we’ve reached a new level of weird).

      3. Oh, I am familiar with Flashpoint, and I have no doubt the people who made the descision to adapt it are not. Although resetting the entire DCEU at this early stage is exactly the kind of bizarrely misguided thing you would expect. The Joker thing is hysterical. How do you take a Joker origin movie and turn it into an even worse idea? Wait, I know!

        Sorry Dave, but the bozos making these decisions are where the buck stops with JL too. I don’t have a lot of faith.

      4. Just imagine if WB had opted to retain the tone and quality of Nolan’s trilogy. They would not need to turn to Scorcesse (like that’s going to happen) to bring cache to the brand, the cache would already be there.

      5. Yes but you would think they would learn from experience. Velociraptors would be capable of making better superhero movies.

  1. They really screwed up by not giving Wendy, Marvin and Wonder Dog a solo movie before putting them in JL. There are going to be too many character introductions in this movie.
