Trailer Time: Justice League Trailer #2 *Will it Come Together?*

The first trailer for Justice League released way back last summer at Comic Con was, I thought, a positive step forward.  It had some funny moments, introduced the team, everyone looked good, and even as someone just coming off Batman vs. Superman letdown, I was liking it.  Eight months later, the second trailer….doesn’t really do much more.  Most of it is spent re-reintroducing the team, and it doesn’t clearly outline the threat or much of the plot.  It’s a lot of super-fast “moments” without context (unless you’re hopelessly geeky like me and I know that oh hey there’s Mera or that’s Barry talking to his imprisoned father).

It’s not enough to say the film is in trouble; it’s just not that impressively assembled a trailer.  NO DC HATE: I am not saying I dislike anything I’m seeing; I’m saying it was put together poorly.  Caveat for Batman/Aquaman who really just need a movie for themselves, and the four seconds I got of JK Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.  My love for Jason Mamoa’s Aquaman is reaching “I need a t-shirt” levels.  Plot synopsis below.  Justice League Part 1 is coming in November.

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.

Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot will be reprising their roles as the DC Trinity, Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman in Warner Bros.‘ Justice League, and joining them are Jason Mamoa as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and Ezra Miller as The Flash. Amber Heard is set to play Queen Mera in the film as well before moving to the solo Aquaman movie in 2018, with Willem Dafoe appearing in a mystery role, and J.K. Simmons playing Commissioner Gordon.

Directed by Zack Snyder (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Justice League will debut in theaters on November 10, 2017.

Trailer Time: Wonder Woman Trailer #3 (2017) “Origins”

After last August’s Suicide Squad, the next installment on DC’s road to Justice League is the Wonder Woman solo film.  The third trailer for the film is the best yet, focusing on Diana’s origin and her her first journey to the world of men during World War I.  I have had issues with some of the dialogue in past scripts, but this seemed much better, focuses, and this film has looked gorgeous since it was unveiled at Comic Con.  It’s got a tough spot on the summer schedule surrounded by Pirates 5 and Transformers 5, but if things keep looking this good and franchise fatigue finally sets in on either the bots or Jack Sparrow, WW could carve out the beginnings of a franchise of its own. Starring Gal Gadot, Robin Wright, Chris Pine, and David Thewlis as Ares, Wonder Woman is scheduled to open June 2, 2017.

Poll: What’s Your Most Anticipated Summer 2017 Film?

Amazing as it was, it’s nice to finally put 2016 to bed and to get on to the business of a new year of movies.  I apologize for being a big behind on reviews, but I should have that caught up by the weekend.  The summer is traditionally where the movie industry showcases their biggest, loudest, splodiest, franchisiest entries, but-let’s face it=summer began last week with Logan.  Summer, now-apparently-runs from March to August, but we’re going to be all crazy traditional and limit this year’s Most Anticipated Summer Film to May – August (we’re wacky like that).

Trailer Time: Wonder Woman Trailer #2 (2017)

After August’s Suicide Squad, the next installment on DC’s road to Justice League is the Wonder Woman solo film.  The first trailer for the film was unveiled at Comic Con. The second full trailer is out now, along with three gorgeous posters.  “Gorgeous” is really the best word to describe WW so far.  It looks stunning.  However, every time I hear dialogue, I wince.  Geoff Johns didn’t get hired to start righting the disastrous rollout of the DCEU until after Wonder Woman was done, so his influence isn’t going to be felt until Justice League.  Question is: by the time we get there, is anyone going to care when Marvel is throwing no-hitter after no-hitter?  Starring Gal Gadot, Robin Wright, Chris Pine, and David Thewlis, Wonder Woman is scheduled to open June 2, 2017.
