Justice League SDCC Trailer

Saturday, July 22nd, 2017

A lot of great movie trailers have come out for this year’s SCCC, and the Justice League trailer is no exception. Aside from giving a somewhat clearer look at main villain Steppenwolf, we also get an action-packed look at the entire league.

Trailers are meant to hype up the film, but it’s still looking loads better than BvS.

Justice League Trailer

Sunday, March 26th, 2017

DC’s shared film universe, known officially as the ‘DC Extended Universe’, has been, frankly, a poorly-managed hodgepodge hurriedly crafted together in a desperate response to Marvel’s expertly handled (by comparison) ‘Marvel Cinematic Universe’. As a result, what could/should have been good films were instead narratively unsound, critical disappointments, succeeding entirely on the properties they represent rather than than their own merits.

Ok, now that I have the pretentious critic angle covered, here’s my 2 cents on the newest ‘Justice League’ trailer.

Yeah, I’m pretty pumped to see a ‘Justice League’ movie is actually getting made. Yeah, it looks like they’re doing it right i.e. more ‘comic-booky’, even if it’s a bit jarring to go from BvS to this. However, trailers are meant to tantalize, and I’ve been burned before: pre-release material made BvS look really great, and even made Suicide Squad seem like it would be watchable. Then there’s Wonder Woman, which again, looks pretty neat, but it could always go south.

I’ll reserve further critique until ‘Justice League’ actually comes out in November, but, well, the track record of DC films speaks for itself. Enjoy the trailer, but be wary that’s this is a trailer, and all of the cool fight scenes and snappy dialogue compressed into a few minutes of footage are not representative of the final product.
