Geekery: Explosive New Justice League Trailer

Do you want action? This trailer has a ton of it… and a glimpse of Aquaman in his natural habitat.

It has been a week of new trailers – next up: a new look at Justice League.

The cover of Bowie’s classic “Heroes” isn’t doing this any favors. Beyond that…. looks like DC is including a bunch of large battle scenes. There’s definitely a lot Zack Snyder in this movie – the scale, and how they’re shot has his name all over them.

That Atlanteans, Amazons, and mankind versus the forces of Apokolips battle looks epic. The last scene with the team fighting the forces of Darkseid under a red soaked sky  – maybe a nod to Crisis on Infinite Earths?

There are some Joss moments, too. The opening scene, that wisecrack between Aquaman and Bats, and the closing moment with Flash are certainly his doing.

I’m warming up a little to this over time. I don’t expect it to be great, but the more I see of the comic book scale battles the more I’m willing to put down my money for a matinee ticket just to see them on a big screen.

What’s your take – are you willing to give DC another chance?

    I like DC Comics, but somehow I just consistently find myself completely uninterested in DC movies. I don’t even know if my old complaint about tiring origin stories still holds. Maybe my inner child just finally died and I’ve lost all hope and sense of wonder in the world.

      Nope, they are just bad unless Snyder is the director.

  • Compare to the marvel movies, D.C. Just falls flat. I usually wait until they come out on iTunes, WAY cheaper than the theater

    Do you like garbage mid-90’s quality CG effects? Well, this trailer has got it for you in spades!

    Well…..at least we know the plots beginning, middle and ending….

    I love DC and cheering for the DCEU to succeed…but my my my Warners are making it hard for themselves. This looks like another BvS and Suicide Squad mess; the plot seems all over the shot assisted with massive completely GCI filled fight sequences. And, Jebus, I hope the CGI in the final trailer is still awaiting final rendering; because it looks horrific at the moment….

    I don’t know whether WB should just scrap the current DCEU and start again or just use the Flash film to Flashpoint-retcon the hell out of the timeline.
