Justice League is going to be more fun than Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
DC and Warner brought in a host of its upcoming movies during its Hall H panel at the San Diego Comic-Con 2016 over the weekend. Fans were thrilled to witness the debut of one movie trailer after another in the conference. Director Zack Snyder unveiled the first official trailer of Justice League at SDCC, and by the looks of it, it is way lighter and funnier than BvS.
The teaser offered a glimpse of how Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) recruited the rest of this crew. Bruce was seen approaching Arthur Curry, a.k.a. Aquaman, and Barry Allen, a.k.a. The Flash, to join the team. Between the two, Allen is more receptive than the King of Atlantis. After he dodged a Batarang thrown by Bruce, Allen realized who he was speaking to. Before Batman fully explains the reason for his visit, Allen interrupted him and immediately signed up for the superhero team.
“You’re in? Just like that?” Bruce asked. Allen replied: “I need friends. Can I keep this?” referring to Batman’s bat-shaped weapon.
More comedy scenes are expected in the movie since it seems that Bruce and Diana Prince, a.k.a. Wonder Woman, will be having a hard time convincing the rest of the Metahumans to join their team.
The league will be made up of Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ezra Miller (The Flash) and Ray Fisher (Cyborg). Actor Willem Dafoe (Nuidis Vulko) and Amber Heard (Mera) will also appear in the movie.
Justice League has a release date schedule of Nov. 17, 2017.
Meanwhile, the panel also debuted the first trailer for Wonder Woman. Gadot admitted that she was moved after seeing the trailer of her first standalone movie.
Wonder Woman, which is directed by Patty Jenkins, will be released on June 2, 2017. Gadot also took a break from kicking some ass to making the audience laugh. Her comedy film Keeping Up With the Joneses will hit theaters on Oct. 21.
