Zack Snyder’s Justice League movie gets its first full-length trailer
The first official Justice League trailer has finally arrived, and it’s something. Tonally, things feel askew as the trailer begins, but for the most part the action-heavy preview manages to hype the film successfully. Technically this is the first full-length preview for Justice League, but fans of the DC ensemble and attendees of Comic Con (and soon after the rest of the world) were shown footage way back in July 2016, so it’s about time a proper trailer surfaced to help save the floundering franchise (as most of the new DCU films have subtly promised to do) that’s trying to do battle with Marvel’s behemoth. Again, personally, the trailer’s introduction seemed off, but I have a lot of fun once that Zack Snyder action is on full display. Here’s hoping the movie is an enjoyable ride.
Watch the first full-length trailer for Justice League and check out a handful of character posters for the movie after the jump.
Apparently teaser trailers specific to each character were shuffled out earlier in the week, but I really can’t get on board with devoting an entire article to a few seconds of footage. I’d much rather wait until the big show hits in the form of the full-length trailer, and gather the posters that trickle out together into a gallery, than go the alternate route. That said, what’d you think of that trailer? Not enough for you? Check out the posters that popped up this week (below).
Here’s the official plot synopsis for Justice League for you to sink your teeth into:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash -— it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Amber Heard, J.K. Simmons, Connie Nielsen, Willem Dafoe, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, Jesse Eisenberg, Ciarán Hinds, and most likely a handful more faces you might recognize. Talk about an incredible cast, regardless of the movie itself. The Justice League movie hits theaters on November 17, 2017.
