There is something truly special about seeing your favorite superheroes together on the big screen. No, it’s not just a matter of seeing them stand side by side, but there’s a definite satisfaction one gets from seeing their different personalities clash on the big screen. It’s what makes the comic book crossovers so special, and it’s what makes all the Avengers films feel special as well. It’s not about just seeing these characters be badasses on the big screen, but about the actual relationships that form between each characters.
With that in mind, Zack Snyder’s upcoming Justice League movie has a tall order to fill. Because most of the characters in the film have only been seen in short scenes, he’ll have the arduous task of developing the characters while also developing their relationships simultaneously.
This is a task that Snyder is well aware of, and in a recent interview with Total Film, he expressed his excitement at making these interactions between these characters a reality.
“One of the more rewarding aspects of creating Justice League was having fun exploring the dynamic between this diverse group of larger-than-life characters with disparate backgrounds, ethics, and unique perspectives all trying to come together and work as a team. “It not only offers an opportunity for great drama and complex relationships, but it also often results in great fun. It’s an exciting concept to explore and it only gets better when you add the component of our incredibly talented cast – their chemistry really adds to that dynamic.”
As I mentioned above, this is a quite the job the movie has to take on. But rather than compare it unfairly to the likes of The Avengers, it may be more fitting to take a look at something like Guardians of the Galaxy. That movie had a cast of newcomers that the audience had to fall in love with in two hours, and it managed to pull it off pretty well. In addition, with this film, we’ll really only be getting introduced to three newcomers, so perhaps it won’t be as difficult as it first seems.
What do you think of Snyder’s comments? Do you have faith he’ll nail these interactions between the characters, or are you concerned that most of his focus will lie in the visual imagery? Let us know in the comments down below!
