Get A Four Minute First Look at ‘Justice League’ From San Diego Comic-Con
Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and The Flash unite to fight against Steppenwolf. But will it be worth your coin to watch?
With San Diego Comic-Con in full swing, the e-streets have been waiting for something to hang its collective hat on. Look no further than Warner Bros. x DC Comics’ own shot at Marvel’s cinematic supremacy, as a four minute first look at Justice League was unveiled.
The footage opens with Wonder Woman single-handedly stopping a bank robbery before picking up where Batman v. Superman left off in the aftermath of Superman’s death. A threat, which is revealed to be Steppenwolf, arrives, attacks Themyscira, before going hard at decimating the rest of the world.
These moves by a not-so-mysterious entity (comic fans know what’s in the works here) force the World’s Greatest Heroes: Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Batman (Ben Affleck), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher — to join together to save the planet.
The biggest mark out moment (besides Aquaman stomping on a parademon through a building) was when Jeremy Irons’ Alfred is speaking with an unseen superhero. Who could it be? Superman? Green Lantern? It all seems up in the air, but the trailer doesn’t really make me personally hype to see Justice League. The serious tone, dark coloring and lack of fun anywhere to be seen makes Justice League feel like Batman v. Superman with more characters.
Batman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman are looking great in this trailer, especially after Ben Affleck confirmed that he will remain playing the role for years to come. “Let me be clear. Batman is the greatest fucking part in the world. I am thrilled to do it.”
Watch the sneak peek below and circle November 17 for when Justice League will be out in theaters.
