Lately, I will admit that I have been critical of the upcoming release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League. It’s been just being tired of hearing about it day after day for years now. But the fact is that we are only a month away from its release so we can finally put it to bed. For a week now he has been teased about the February 14th release of their new trailer. The latest one since DC FanDome. Before we go any further, let’s go ahead and check it out below!
There was a lot to take away from the Justice League trailer. First off (and for me most importantly), we are going to get a legit high-level threat trying to invade Earth, Darkseid. He is the ruler of Apokolips and commands the Parademons. Alongside him are Steppenwolf, Desaad, and Granny Goodness all of which are finally present in this trailer. It will be interesting to see how much of these supporting baddies and Darkseid himself we see in the film.
If there is one thing to me that stuck out right from the start of Whedon’s Justice League, it was the horrific visual effects on Superman’s face. With Henry Cavill now in the film as intended, the mustache fix should be a thing of the past. Also, we should be getting a few other characters that were intended to be in the film. For example, we see that Iris West will be making an appearance and apparently we should get a look at Martian Manhunter (although that has not been confirmed). One of the biggest additions will be the returning Joker. Who we have not seen since Suicide Squad.
Speaking of the Joker, the scene that we see him in is a Knightmare scene with Batman. The Knightmare scenes were first introduced in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. They gave Batman a possible future where Darkseid has taken over and possibly control of Superman. By the looks of it, Snyder will be completing his idea of the Knightmare scene in this film. I am curious about how much time will be spent there.
Regardless if your excited or not for Zack Snyder’s Justice League, it’s happening. As a fan of DC and its characters, I am very excited to see what this film was originally intended to look like and just to see them on screen. It’s especially exciting that I won’t have to dish out any cash to see it as I am already an HBO Max subscriber. Also, we will finally be able to put this Snyder Cut conversation to rest.
