CBMB: The Justice League Trailer Gives a View of the DCEU Past and Future

By Muuka Muyumba

Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) are tasked with bringing together a group of extraordinary individuals…oops, wrong superheroes.

Justice League is the culmination of a series of films since 2013 that will see our first look at the DC Comics heroes on screen. Batman and Wonder Woman play the grown ups of the group including crime-fighting new kids Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Flash (Ezra Miller), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). We will eventually see Superman (Henry Cavill) as part of this team, but he must first wake from a slumber into which he fell at the end of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The new trailer shows a bit more of team’s formation, some of their backstories, some interactions, and the ultimate battle versus the forces of Apokalips. We don’t see the villain of the film, Steppenwolf (Ciaran Hinds), who is the lieutenant of Darkseid, and a herald of Apokalips.

Justice League is said to center around Darkseid’s desire to collect hidden Mother Boxes around Earth.

The visuals are purely director Zack Snyder who prefers the darker hues and grim tableaus. However, there is a noticeable uptick in snark from the various characters which was a criticism of BvS which was particularly stark. The film will also expand the universe with the introduction of Comissioner Jim Gordon (J.K. Simmons), Dr. Henry Allen (Billy Crudup), and Queen Mera of Atlantis (Amber Heard).

Justice League hits the theaters on November 17, 2017.
