New Justice League trailer is actually pretty good

Recommended Posts

My expectations aren't too high for the new Justice League movie coming out later this year, but I have to admit the new trailer that came out yesterday is actually not bad.

 

 

The signature Zack Snyder slow-mo spin-around shots kind of make me roll my eyes, but everything else that they've shown looks pretty spot-on for what you'd expect of a comic-book movie team up of this calibur.

 

Also, some observations-

 

- Cool that we get our first glimpse of the parademons

 

- The trailer goes way out of its way to sell the audience on Aquaman. It's pretty blatant, but I think Jason Momoa will pull it off and be a pretty memorable take on the character.

 

- Where's Steppenwolf (the main villain)? I'll have to watch it a few more times to make sure I didn't miss him, but it's odd that they didn't show him if I'm correct about them skipping over him in this trailer.

 

- On that same note, I can totally see them pulling the eleventh hour switcharoo and revealing that Darkseid is in the movie and is the overall baddie. I doubt they'll defeat him, but they'll force him to retreat by the end, I'm sure.

 

- Cyborg seems cool, but the SFX on him seem a little weird to me. Am I the only one who thought this?

 

- Thank goodness for Ben Affleck; once again, he seems like he'll be the best part of this film, though I have higher hopes for Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa and the other two than I did for BvS.

 

 

What did you guys think of the trailer? Are you sold on the movie?

Looks pretty cool I can't wait to see how this goes. I have enjoyed all of the DC movies so far so I'm sure this will be good as well. I'm sure all the little Marvel fans will be crying saying the movie is bad like they have the previous movies. I'll wait for the extended cut those always seem to be the better versions. Why don't they just start with the extended cut?

That looks amazing and I'm sold haha. Did they call on other Superheroes at the end? I thought I saw like an Army and Lois Lane? So is Superman in this movie or not? I think Ben Affleck will do a good job and so will the others. I honestly thought Wonder Woman was the best in BVS. She literally was tanking the final enemy all by herself which shows you how boss she can be.

I definitely got the Watchmen/Snyder feeling from the trailer. I keep thinking man I should watch the uncut version of Watchmen since I've only seen regular. I hope this turns out to be fantastic and learn from BvS. I think it does look good and improved as long as there isn't any cluster of stories jamming in lol. I think Darkseid will end up appearing at the end, midcredit scene, or after credits as a teaser like Thanos style. Aquaman does look pretty cool. I agree with you about Cyborg. Horrible CGI and I know this is only the trailer so they'll have time to polish and make things better in the editing room for the final version. Glad Affleck is sticking around. Really dig him as Bruce Wayne. Man we got a lot of hero movies this year! What a year to be alive!

It might just be my monitor, but I think I almost saw some actual color in the trailer. D:

 

Anyway, I'm still not sure what to think. It doesn't give off an Avengers vibe which could be a good thing in that this movie will try to stand on its own instead of copying Marvel, but it could be a bad thing because Avengers is really good and copying Marvel might be the only way for WB to make a good movie at this point. :P I'm still going with a "wait and see" attitude towards this movie though, I don't want to immediately hate it just because BvS was so very, very bad, but I don't want to get excited and get letdown again either.
