Coming out of Batman v Superman, there were a whole lot of criticism. While many pointed to the story and characters as the main issue, one other word critics tended to use was “fun.” Simply put, they didn’t think Batman v Superman was “fun,” and apparently if a movie is based on a comic book it needs to be fun. Since then, Warner Bros has been on overdrive trying to incorporate these notes into their films. Suicide Squad suffered a massive overhaul in the editing room, and when discussing Justice League, they were quick to point out its more hopeful nature.

It’s been months and months that we’ve had this narrative thrown at us, and after all that time, Warner Bros has finally released its first official trailer, and I have to say, despite all my misgivings, I’m on board. The trailer itself was energetic, enticing, and dare I say, “fun.” Of course, we can’t take this as an affirmation of the film’s quality — both Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad had amazing trailers, but were received by fans and critics in a less than ideal way. So will this same happen with Justice League? That’s impossible to say. All we know is that based on this first trailer, we’re liking what we see so far.

Check out the official trailer below!

Below is the synopsis for Justice League:

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s (Henry Cavill) selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash — it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Justice League hits theaters on November 17, 2017.
