This morning Zack Snyder posted on Twitter that we may not have long to wait for a Justice League trailer, in fact his exact writing was, “Trailer is all part of marketing and there is a set schedule for release it’s coming soon so don’t worry.” Is this a good thing for the trailer to hit so soon before we have even watched Wonder Woman fail? — Whoops, I mean “hit the theaters?”
Over at Marvel, we have 3 trailers going right now; Spider-Man: Homecoming, Logan, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, and this seems to work quite well for Marvel. However, with the DCEU I think the audiences are much more critical, and that Snyder may wan’to wait for movie reactions to Wonder Woman before he actually drops a trailer to a movie that is suppose to be the franchises huge piece of the new Geoff Johns era.
Justice League does have promise. Even with Sadaffleck returning, we will still have Gal Gadot who seems to fit the Wonder Woman role quite well. Jason Momoa will play Aquaman, and I will admit at first I was less than excited for this, but I just watched him in the Netflix series Frontier and I was blown away by his performance. This is the first time that I did not simply see him like Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones, and it actually gave me high hopes for Aquaman. While I doubt Ezra Miller will come no where near close to Grant Gustin’s portrayel of Barry Allen, Miller did surprise me in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. We also get Cyborg, who at this point is the most exciting thing to the movie for me. Will he be made with boom tube technology like in the recent comic runs? I can’t wait to see his backstory and I hope it is brutal. Then of course there is Superman himself, but my fear is we won’t even see him until close to the end of the film.
There are a few other names attached to that are superstars themselves. Willem Dafoe will play Vulko, Amber Heard as Mera, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
Well we will just have to wait until we see the trailer before we get to critical of the film. Are you guys ready?
Justice League hits theaters on November 17, 2017.
