Geekery: New Justice League Clips Reveal… A Lot

DC cannot, will not stop their course… this looks… bad.

We’ve got less than 2 weeks before the movie hits theaters and DC just dropped a bunch of clips that expand on scenes from the trailers, and offer some character introductions. Unlike the clips we’ve gotten from Blade Runner 2049 and the latest Alien movies, these look to be part of the movie rather than specially made promotional clips. This move doesn’t bode well in my opinion, but I’m not the end all here.

For those that are fine with spoilers, or weren’t planning on seeing the movie in the first place….

I take back what I wrote last time I covered this movie. No. Just… no.

 

Yes or no for you?

    Well, I guess the internet has already decided this movie is bad.

    • chris harrison

      Oh nooo!

    • Muninwing

      to be fair, the internet is sometimes right. not always, but sometimes.

      i’ve been getting a bad feeling about this one since the first clips. for everything they’ve done right (casting the flash), they’ve done a few things that are questionable. the tone is a mess, the plot is less mainstream appealing, and the overall idea is a patch on to a mediocre chain of movies.

      we’ll see what happens.

    Ever since Star Trek; Into Darkness, I seek out spoilers. As for Justice League, it’s based on a comic book, how high could anyone’s expectations reasonably be?

        You mean like the theatrical masterpieces that were Thor: The Dark World, Ghostrider: Spirit of Vengeance, or Spider-Man 3?

        • EnTyme

          Don’t forget about critically-acclaimed The Punisher (1989 or 2004) or the magnum opus The Punisher: Warzone!

          • Stonewall

            Or the first Captain America movie! (the really old one)

          • Dennis J. Pechavar

            If you’re guilty, you’re dead! You nailed it Dolph!

          • Ted Wilson

            Punisher 2004 is my favorite B-movie. Unfortunately, Hollywood is done with B-movies

        • Stonewall

          To be fair Spider-Man 3 was one of Fox’s train wrecks.

          • EnTyme

            Columbia and Sony owned Spider-man during the Sam Raimi/Tobey Maguire era. Fox just has X-men.

        • DeadlyYellow

          There are far far worse MCU films to choose from than Thor: The Dark World.

          Age of Ultron and Guardians 2 ride the bottom of my list for that category.

        • John Henry III

          Only two of those where made by marvel studios. and Thor 2 was a passable film if not great.

  • Purple-Stater

    My best local theater has $5 Tuesdays. I have no doubt that this will be a great $5 movie.

    • Muninwing

      yes. but i’d feel cheated if i paid full price, based on these clips.

    Just by the way, what’s wrong with this website? It’s always the slowest – by far – to load, runs scripts that ramp up my CPU no matter what browser I’m using… is it that you’ve got so many ads and random garbage links on it? I used to visit daily but over the last year I’ve tended to stay away because waiting for stuff to load is painful

      Since the admins decided to delete my last attempt at this post, I’ll just have to post it again. It cracks me up when sites like this ask me to “help them out” by disabling ad blocker. The reason I run ad blocker on your site is because you have no curation of the ads you allow to run here. Without ad blocker, I’m overrun by blinking banners, popups, autoplay videos, and scripts that cripple my browsing speed. I understand that you guys make your money from advertising, but come on. Have some self respect and curate who is allowed to advertise on your site and what type of ads they are allowed to use!

  • Kevin Murray

    Looks like standard stuff to roll during the press tour/late night TV appearances. Notice the “EPK” (Electronic Press Kit) card at the beginning of most clips.

  • Agent OfBolas

    Although Wonder Woman is a really nice chick, I can’t take seriously Justice League… they always looks for me like guys in funny costumes.

  • euansmith

    I’ll skip these clips and wait until I can watch the entire film on Thursday. Batmurder vs Moroseman: Dawn of MAAAARTHA!!! and Suicide Squib have lowered my expectations for this film, but I’ll still go along to watch. Hopefully this will be more in line with Wonder Woman and have some engaging characters and an almost coherent script.

  • euansmith

    I can’t help but think that DCMU would be helped by splitting their budgets over more films; making ten $30,000,000 instead of one $300,000,000. With less riding on each film, they could relax in to it.

    I mean, they sank $175,000,000 in to making Suicide Squad and got so panicky about it that they butchered the film. If they planned to make five $30,000,000 films, shot back to back to reduce costs, they could have taken the time to develop the setting.

    • eMtoN

      They could have made a film for each one of those characters that led up to the penultimate battle. Then a film for that.

      However, I doubt they could have done it for $30m each. Other than their faces, just about everything else you see on screen looks like it is CGI.

      • euansmith

        Certainly a $30,000,000 film wouldn’t look like Man of Steel or BvS:DoJ; but it might be better for it. Chronicle used characterisation to turn in a good film., and that “only” cost $12,000,000. Certainly the Suicide Squad would have been better served by something more like The Bourne Identity ($60,000,000) with some super powers.
