The new trailer for the Justice League has appeared. And we have some questions about it. Because we have already seen the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Will this live up to expectations? Is there too much competition? And can all these new superhero team movies keeps fans happy?
We already know that there is a huge following from fans of the comics Justice League who will turn out to see the film. So that is a given.
However the critics reviewing this superhero outing is not a given. Zac Snyder is directing he did Superman vs Batman. That did not go down well with critics. Actually it was panned.
Zac Snyder’s style is dark which is not to everyones liking. Is it family friendly? Not as much but enough so. But this might be right for the overall tone of the film and actually set it apart from the other superhero movies.
Comic-Con released a new trailer where we see Ben Affleck as character Bruce Wayne assemble a team of superheroes with Wonder Woman Diana Prince. Been there done that.
So Justice League have been beaten to the punch. There is Aquaman played by Games of Thrones star Jason Momoa who is playing a threatning, angry, sort of tortured man. No typecast there. He can “talk to fish” remarks Affleck.
There is Barry Allen the Flash played by Ezra Miller he seems suprisingly good and humourous. There is cyborg man a half man, half machine played by unknown Ray Fisher.
Surely a fail safe for fans of the comics who will probably go see the film regardless of critics. But this movie will have to be different if it doesn’t want to be compared to Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy otherwise it could get lost in the pile of Superhero movies that we are being inundated with.
And because of that I might give this one a miss and catch it when it comes out on DVD. How about you? If you could be a superhero what would your power be and why?
