It seems like DC is in a new state of turmoil practically every week, or at least it seems to be, due to the studios’ poor communication with the press compared to Marvel Studios – who hasn’t lost an actor or director in years and biggest problem is poor fan reaction to Iron Fist and the Ihnumans marketing – and today is no different. Already we have reports that again suggest Ben Affleck may not be in The Batman and that Jared Leto isn’t happy with the studio due to their new Joker origin film that will involve a new actor. Though it’s not completely solid ground, two areas that DC at least has seemingly under control are the productions of Justice League and Aquaman, which are actually being made and therefore should actually see release.
As if to combat the other negative articles being generating today, People has a new image from Justice League featuring Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Batman (Ben Affleck), and Flash (Ezra Miller)!
Okay, so we’ve seen about four images that look exactly like this one before, with this same trio standing there, always either shocked, looking ready for battle, or some combination of the two. I assure you though, this image is brand new, it’s just not that different than what DC has been showing us for months.
Maybe DC is waiting to ramp up marketing for the film until they have more of Joss Whedon’s new footage in place, so the trailer actually matches the film, unlike Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but so far the marketing push has been incredibly underwhelming, especially compared to that of Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok, which sees release two weeks prior to Justice League. Thor is getting new images all the time, has about the same amount of trailers, but also had that awesome “Twitter Spot” that tied into last weekend’s big fight. I’m not against images of Flash, Wonder Woman, and Batman, but can’t we get some of them in action, or will they spend most the film looking at things?
What do you think about the new image from Justice League? Were you at first convinced it wasn’t even new like myself? Let us know in the comment section below!
Justice League hits the big screen on November 17, 2017.
